The Avulsed Ear

Last week, on my duty day, I had a peculiar and difficult situation.
One of our staff, Mr JK, a ward boy – a habitual alcoholic was brought to emergency in a rather sorry state after an allegedly fall off his bike. We initially thought that he had a head injury, but later to our trepidation found out that his right ear was almost avulsed off. There was only a bit of skin and cartilage which was keeping it still attached to his temple.


I waited patiently for about a week before I could post this story as we were not very sure if the ear will stick on after any sort of surgery. Against all odds, Dr Nandamani did quite a superb work on the ear after explaining to JK that there is a very high chance of the whole ear getting necrosis. Our worst fear was of possible gangrene as JK had taken some time before he decided to make it to hospital.  
I had put in a request for prayer. We are glad that things have gone well with JK's ear. After one week of the accident, the suturing appears to have gone well. There is no evidence of any gangrene of the area - rather the avulsed part looks healthy. We praise God.  

JK's wife AK is also a staff nurse of the hospital. She is presently undergoing specialized training in obstetric care at Herbertpur Christian Hospital. They have two children. JK’s alcoholism has taken a toll on the family. Please continue to remember them in prayers as also the rest of the group of alcohol abusers in our campus.
