Jahnavi dasi in severe medical condition

by Indupati das

Posted June 30, 2004

Dear Vaisnavas and Vaisnavis,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga!

Jahnavi dasi (of Alachua, USA) was admitted to Shands hospital on Friday. On Saturday night she developed a lung problem and was taken to intensive care. They found one lung severely infected with pneumonia, and the other lung collapse after some procedure. Her abdomen also became full of fluid. After spending 8 hours to stabilize her condition, they did a CAT scan and, not being able to ascertain the cause of the bowel problem, decided to send her for exploratory surgery. During surgery they discover two large masses which they removed, and also found her intestines severely inflamed. After the surgery, they decided not to close up her abdomen, as the release of pressure was helping her lung condition. Currently she is in surgical intensive care, heavily sedated and hooked up to a dozen machines, including a respirator. The next few days will be critical.

Jahnavi dasi lives in Alachua, USA. She grew up in ISKCON gurukula. She served as the managing director of Children of Krishna for many years. She has stuggled with bad health since her childhood when she contracted diabetes.

I beg that you will all pray to Krsna on her behalf.

Vaisnava dasanudas,
Indupati das (Alachua)
