As always, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj has been making regular visits to JKP Charitable Hospitals, bringing happiness to all the patients and staff he meets.
JKP Hospitals has reported that in the 2011-2012 financial year, a total of 157,594 patients were treated at the Mangarh JKP Hospital alone. One of those patients was this baby, who was diagnosed with dacryocystitis - infection of the lacrimal sac, which is found on the side of the nose, near the inner corner of the eye. It is typically caused by a blocked tear duct. Blocked or narrowed tear duct (Dacryostenosis) is a common condition in newborn babies. The risk from untreated Dacryocystitis includes fever and infection in different parts of the body. JKP Hospital Opthalmologist, Dr. Sandhya Swami recommended for the baby's mother to use special massage technique in order to help open up the membrane covering the lower opening into her baby's nose, to be done several times a day.
And finally, the unlimited feedback from the patients is the most moving part, and the part which encourages us all to keep supporting the truly Divine charitable and social works of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, which are only possible due to the Divine blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj!
