From Indradyumna Swami:
Dear devotees and friends,
The following is an update on Agnideva prabhu’s condition. He is still in ICU in the hospital in Sydney, Australia and will be there for sometime. The doctors say that is he is in serious, but stable, condition. He remains on a ventilator, as he is unable to breath on his own. He is sedated because of the discomfort caused by a breathing tube. One drain has been removed from his collapsed lung, but another remains in place for drainage of liquid . The plan is allow his body to heal somewhat overnight and then do more tests . He is on strong antibiotics which are helping to bring down an still unknown infection in both lungs..
We very much appreciate the generous financial help coming from devotees and friends all over the world. ICU is costing $6000 per day. When he improves he will be moved to a ward costing between $3000 – $4000 per day. Further Rehab costs have not been estimated.
His son was chanting in his room this morning. When the nurses took off the machines to wash him his son said, “Dad if you know its me squeeze my hand” and Agnideva did.
