Jayapataka Swami Health Update
Posted October 27, 2008
(26 Oct - 9.30 p.m. report)
There is a gradual improvement of Maharaja's consciousness but he is not yet out of danger. Jayapataka Maharaja is able to recognize some people and understand some commands but he is not totally conscious. He still feels drowzy.
Dr. Hegde came at 9.15 pm and said that neurologically Maharaja is improving. BP and Sugar level is under control. The platelets count is 79,000 now and it is gradually increasing which is a good sign.
As per Bhanu Maharaja the next couple of days is not auspicious as New Moon day is approaching. There is a general chance for disease to be aggravated during this time. Therefore Bhakti Purushottama Maharaja requests that devotees continue to pray intensely.
Your humble servant,

Dr.Syamalal Prabhu from the Bhaktivedanta hospital asked Jayapataka Maharaja to give his right hand and he responded to it. The doctor asked Maharaja to squeeze his hand and Maharaja squeezed his hand. The doctor asked Jayapataka Maharaja to move his legs then he started shaking the legs vigourously.
Even the bed started to shake. Therefore the doctor wanted him to stop and Guru Maharaja immediately stopped. Whenever the doctor speaks to Maharaja he opens his eyes and looks at the doctor.
Jayapataka Maharaja is still in a delicate situation and the hospital has strictly ordered not to disturb him.

Dear Devotees, Hare Krsna. Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Revati Raman prabhu, the Temple President of Tirupati, AP, India one of the senior disciples of Jayapataka Maharaja is rendering a very important service for the care and safety of Maharaja in the hospital by the ICU. Today under the supervision of the doctors and nurses he approached Maharaja to the pavitram of Tirupati Balaji Deity.
While tying the pavitram on Maharaja's hand Revati Raman prabhu spoke, "We love you so much. Every one around the world wants you. They are all praying for you and sending so many emails."
As Maharaja heard this he opened his eyes looking at Revati Raman prabhu for 2 minutes and raised his left hand pointing to his mouth. The doctors and nurses were amazed and said that Maharaja perfectly understood what Prabhu said and indicated that he was unable to speak because of the tubes in his mouth. This is the most wonderful information for all of us.
Thanks to all the prayers of the devotees. The main doctors will be making soon a decision if the ventilator could be removed.
Your humble servant, Ratnavali dd
