Process of rehabilitation

22/07/2016: General House

As informed before, Br. Eugène Kabanguka, general councilor, had suffered a stroke on June 15th, and was taken immediately to San Camillo Hospital in Rome. On June 23rd he was transferred to a private clinic, Villa Sandra, to begin the process of rehabilitation.

Barely a week later, Br. Eugène experienced severe abdominal pain. Following a series of tests, the doctors diagnosed cholecystitis, that is, inflammation of the gall bladder, due to the presence of gall stones. On consideration, it was deemed necessary to remove the gall bladder, and consequently he was transferred back to San Camillo, where they carried out the surgical operation on June 29th.

Since July 8th, Br. Eugène is back in Villa Sandra clinic and will almost surely remain there for just over a month. 

Now he is doing physical and speech therapy. Br. Eugène is not yet able to move one side of his body, but he is slowly recovering speech.

We thank God that Br. Eugene is living through this very difficult moment with his accustomed serenity and peace, and with a great deal of patience. Let us continue to commend our brother Eugene to the tender care of our Good Mother.

The Brothers of the General House, as an important sign of fraternity, are always present during the visiting time.

Since last week, at the request of the General Council, Br. Spiridion Ndanga, from Rwanda, is in Rome to closely monitor the recovery of Br. Eugène.
