Dear Devotees and Well-wishers,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Guru Maharaja has maintained his slight improvement from the deterioration that he suffered yesterday morning. He passed the night relatively stable. The problem remains in his breathing capacity which continues to be limited. The doctors have decided to gradually prompt Guru Maharaja’s body to respond by his own endeavor instead of totally depending on the breathing device.
Guru Maharaja is conscious, responsive and very positive to the point that today he was asking for coconut water. He is communicating with the doctors regarding his different treatments and needs. Even just now, there was a dying patient on the bed next to Guru Maharaja’s and he asked for a Bhagavad Gita to be read to that patient. Nevertheless, he is still under careful medical supervision in the ICU.
We request devotees to please understand that Guru Maharaja’s health condition at time oscillates thus it is difficult to produce an accurate report. These are mostly summaries of the average progress during the day.
The senior doctor, the ICU team and the devotee-doctors agree that Guru Maharaja’s condition is currently relatively stable but could present serious risks at any moment. Overall, the doctors explained that after being for many days using a breathing aid, the body takes a couple of days to go back to its normal condition, or close to it.
Please continue to send your offerings to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure Guru Maharaja will be reported on this as soon as possible. We humbly request you to also continue your sincere prayers and chanting for his fast recovery.
We will keep you informed through www.jayapatakaswami.com, JPS App (available on both iPhone and Android), and twitter (@jayapatakaswami).
