Dear Devotees and well-wishers,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Guru Maharaja is continuing with the process of being weaned off from the ventilator. Yesterday was the first day without it, and the doctors have recommended a 48 hours-watch to cautiously monitor his situation. After this period, he will be given more support to regain his strength and slowly resume his normal activities (eating, moving, exercising, etc.).
This could take around up to 3 or 4 days. Once his condition is more settled, there will be a review of the next phase of his treatment. However, at this point, it is a matter of first observing how Guru Maharaja manages without the ventilator.
Currently, he is given assistance for his breathing with a mask to slowly help him to recuperate his lung capacity. We want to remind everyone that this is a very slow process of waiting and assessing day-by-day Guru Maharaja’s progress. Still there are difficulties and risks but Guru Maharaja has expressed his desire to continue trying to steadily improve his health. Otherwise, he is still in the ICU and the team of doctors is constantly checking for any possible complication to prevent any further crisis as in the past.
We want to strongly express to the worldwide family of disciples and well-wishers of Guru Maharaja that the Health team depends on your praying and support. We request everyone to keep up the efforts of invoke blessings of Lord Krishna to assist him in his desire to overcome this health setback.
Please 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 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).
On Behalf of Guru Maharaja’s Health Team
(Ys, Ekanatha Gaura das – Health Coordinator)
