KATHMANDU: Former King Gyanendra Shah and Queen Komal will fly to Bangkok to see their ailing son former Crown Prince Paras on Wednesday afternoon. After a massive heart attack on Febraury 19, the wayward royal is admitted to the Bangkok-based Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital in a state of coma.
Paras's three children -- son Hridayendra, and daughters Poornika and Kritika--will also accompany the royal couple.
Phani Raj Pathak, an aide of the royal family, informed that the royalty will board a flight to the Thai capital at 1:55 pm.
Kritika had suffered appendicitis on the same night her father blacked out in Bangkok, and she underwent surgery in Kathmandu the following day.
Meanwhile, the Samitivej Hospital said in its medical bulletin this evening that no significant change has been observed in the high-profile patient's medical conditions.
"His condition remains very critical but stable," Dr. Kunchit Piyavechviratana, an intesivist at the hospital, said.|
