Doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital early Tuesday morning, 20 Tishrei 5774 are reporting a slight improvement in the condition of Maran HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef Shlita, who remains in a medically induced coma on a mechanical respirator.
The gadol hador’s condition is being described as stable “without significant change during the night”. The good news is the rav vital systems are stable, and that is perhaps the most important aspect of the report.
Later in the morning the medical team with consult with family members after another assessment. The family was summoned to the rav’s bedside on Monday night and was later sent home, told that while the rabbi’s condition is serious, it is not critical.
The tzibur is urged to continue being mispallel for
מרן רבי חיים עובדיה יוסף בן גורג’יה לרפואה שלימה בתוך שאר חולי ישראל
NOTE: For those in doubt regarding the rav’s name. YWN-ISRAEL is aware the gadol hador’s last name is Ovadia but this is the name announced by family members, the media and Shas officials and this is the name Am Yisrael is using for tefilos.
