Update #57

Dear God Family, Disciples and well-wishers of H. H. Jayapataka Swami Maharaja,

Please accept our sincere apologies for not being able to send out an update last night. The ground team had a very hectic day yesterday but have come out today with some great news.

Guru Maharaja’s tracheostomy has been decannulated (removed). By the mercy of Lord Krishna and all your sincere prayers he is doing well so far with his breathing and maintaining carbon dioxide levels close to normal. He is able to cough his secretions out on his own. H. G. Priti Rupini Mathaji, anesthetist from Australia, has come in to spend time with Guru Maharaja to support in his recovery. Her intervention has been very crucial in removal of tracheostomy today. We thank her for her time spent with GM and the ground team.

The next 48 hours is very crucial and we need intense prayers for Guru Maharaja to tide over this period. If he is able to manage his breathing well, then Guru Maharaja will not require the tracheostomy any more. And this will be one step closer to his getting out of ICU.

So, please organize programs to congregate and intensely pray to Lord Sri Krishna
and Srila Prabhupada for
Guru Maharaja’s recovery. Please post details of such programs on which will please Guru Maharaja very much and that will enable him to recover on fast track.

On behalf of the Health Team and JPS Seva Committee,
Your Servant
Mahavaraha Das
