Sonia Gandhi fractured her arm; in ICU?
Congress President Sonia Gandhi is now in a stable state say doctors. They say that she had arrived at the research and referral hospital in a state of severe dehydration that caused an 'electrolyte imbalance.' Congress president Sonia Gandhi's medical condition was described as 'grim' when she was admitted in a state of emergency at India's premier military hospital on Tuesday night. Gandhi who was ill since Monday had to cut short her rally in Varanasi after her health deteriorated. According to reports she continues to be dehydrated and has electrolyte imbalance. The 69-year-old accidentally fractured her arm when she collapsed during the rally.
"Mrs Sonia Gandhi has been admitted to SGRH on Wednesday at 1.30pm under the care of Dr Arup Basu and his team from the department of pulmonology. She is dehydrated but is presently stable and further investigations are being conducted. She is advised rest," Sir Ganga Ram hospital said in a press statement. Sources said Gandhi is still in ICU and is unlikely to be discharged this week. "Though she is still in ICU, her condition is much better than what it was when she was rushed to Delhi on a chartered flight, leaving the campaign midway. She was drowsy, could barely talk and her aides had to rush her to the Army hospital though the initial plan was to take her to SGRH," said a source.
