                 Patient Ian Grillot received a special visit at The University of Kansas Hospital today from Consul General Anupam Ray. Dr. Ray was accompanied by Consul R. D. Joshi and Vice Consul Harpal Singh … all three from the Consulate General of India in Houston.  The team of dignitaries told Grillot and his family how grateful they were for his act of heroism the night of the shootings in Olathe at a local bar and grill.  Dr. Ray shared a tweet by India’s Minister of External affairs Sushma Swaraj.  Grillot and his family were invited to India as soon as Grillot is able to travel.  Dr. Ray told Grillot that his bravery and kindness speaks louder for and is more representative of America than the violence that night.  Dr. Ray said on behalf of India, they would celebrate Grillot and forever remember his actions a week ago Wednesday.

            Grillot was discharged from the hospital late Tuesday.  Wednesday he went to church and then stopped by the restaurant where the shootings took place for “closure”.  Grillot and his family came back to the hospital today to meet with the dignitaries from India.
