Dear Devotees and well-wishers,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Guru Maharaja’s health has shown significant improvement since yesterday. He sat on a sofa-chair, drank coconut water and had some soup. Last night was the best since being in the ICU in this hospital. The doctor coordinating the ICU reported to him the great progress and congratulated him for his efforts in recovering. “It takes a lot of will power to achieve what you have done so far, Swamiji. You have passed this test, your results show it”, she told him. In his humble way, Guru Maharaja replied, “I passed this test but there are other tests that still I will have to pass.”
Guru Maharaja is able to take better rest now and although with some difficulty, he is talking more clearly. He recorded a voice message to all of those who sent him messages and prayers saying, “Thank you for all your messages, Gauuuuuranga!” We will circulate this as soon as we can.
Guru Maharaja’s parameters are almost optimal today and he – as usual – is giving his opinion regarding his situation. He was calling for his disciple-neurologist from the USA who is one of the doctors supervising his treatment here. Guru Maharaja finally was allowed to eat some semi-solid food today. He had several spoons of kitri.
It is expected that his improvement continues steadily now that he is taking more rest, breathing and eating better. However, Guru Maharaja’s health condition is still delicate and there are given risks. The problem remains in his lungs’ capacity to breath normally. Doctors, nursing staff and Guru Maharaja’s assistants are working around the clock to improve his health condition.
As expressed in his voice message from last night, he really appreciates hearing about devotees sending him messages, prayers and offerings. Please continue to send them 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.
