Mar Thoma Valiya Metropolitan Mar Chrysostom, who had been continually plagued by health issues for some time now, has got a pacemaker from CMC Vellore. It was implanted on Monday and the metropolitan is now recovering.
The New Indian Express had reported on July 7 on the Metropolitan’s wait to get the nod to get advanced treatment from CMC Vellore where he had been treated in the past.
At the time, some of his relatives, a couple of the doctors at CMC Hospital, Vellore, had evinced interest to shift him out of Fellowship Hospital in Kumbanad.
The Mar Thoma Sabha Secretary issued a press note later in the evening stating the metropolitan’s condition is stable and to keep him in prayers.
