Tuesday AM Update on the Condition of Maran Rav Shteinman


.The following update on the condition of HaGaon HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita is provided by the Medical Director of Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital, Prof. Mordechai Ravid.

The rav sat up and ate breakfast this morning, Tuesday, 27 Kislev. The night was uneventful. The rav is still breathing with the assistance of mechanical positive pressure and one can say with a measure of caution that his condition has improved significantly since yesterday as he continues to receive medication. The rav is alert and oriented and responds to verbal stimulation – he is more or less back to himself.

While releasing him later today is a possibility, considering the cold and stormy weather, this may not occur for another day, of course depending on his condition. I add it is a bit too early to speak of being cured as there is still a way to go.

The tzibur is asked to continue being mispallel for Aharon Yehuda Leib ben Gittel Faiga bsoch shar cholei yisrael.
