Some movement seen in limbs of Paras: Former monarch reaches Thailand to see his ailing son

KATHMANDU: There has been slight improvement in the health condition of Former Crown Prince Paras Shah on Wednesday. However the condition is described as critical but stable.

A press release issued by the Samitivej Hospital, where the former prince is ongoing treatment, said, “His condition remains critical but stable. Some spontaneous movement of his limbs has been observed today. The blood pressure and heart rate are remained without the need of medication.”

Meanwhile, former king Gyanendra Shah and queen Komal have reached Thailand on Wednesday to see their ailing son, who is undergoing treatment in a Bangkok hospital still in an unconscious state following a major heart attack last week.

The ex-royal couple departed for the Thai capital via a scheduled Thai Airway fight with their three grandchildren—Hridayendra, Purnika and Kritika.

Paras is undergoing treatment at Samitivej Hospital in Bangkok. He has been kept in the coronary care unit. The doctors have said his condition is very critical. Former crown princess Himani is already in Bangkok to assist in her husband’s treatment.

Before departing for Thailand, the deposed monarch thanked everyone who had expressed concern on Paras’s health.

“I’ve been informed about the critical health condition of my son,” he said in a humble tone, “I’ll inquire about his state; I’ll inquire with the doctors about it,” Shah said.

“Prayers are being held at many places across the country,” he said, adding, “You also please pray for his speedy recovery.”

An aide for former royal Phani Raj Pathak informed that Nepal Army’s Dr. Kishore Rana is accompanying the royalty. Dr. Rana is a brigadier general and works at the Chhauni-based Army Hospital.
