November 18, 2008 5pm. HH Jayapataka Maharaj's status report by Dr Madhavananda das, Director of Bhaktivedanta Hospital, Mumbai
Maharaj is more alert and is able to clearly understand what is being spoken to him. He is trying to communicate using the alphabet board and through his hand movements (which are limited due to weakness). Today HH Sacinandana Maharaj and HH Candramauli Maharaj came to visit him. They had a lively interaction with him. When HH Sacinandana Maharaj told Maharaj that he had come earlier also to visit him, Maharaj showed two fingers indicating that he remembers that Sacinandana Maharaj had come twice to meet him which was accurate.
Maharaj ate a few teaspoons of khitchri today. His nutrition is still being maintained by naso gastric feeds like before.
Maharaj is still on ventilatory support. The weaning process is going on. Please continue your intense prayers for his quick recovery.

HH Jayapataka Maharaj is stable in terms of consciousness. Using an alphabet chart made by the devotees, Maharaj indicated the spelling of 'Haribol'. When he was asked whether he was saying Haribol to all the devotees around the world, Maharaj emphatically nodded yes.
Dr NF Shah, the endocrinologist was quite positive today as the insulin requirements are reducing which is a good sign, a sign of gradual progressive recovery with decreasing stress levels.
However, Maharaj still requires ventilatory support.
Please continue to pray intensely.
