His life is finished
We arrived and heard that there is a slight improvement. They thought he was going to leave his body at any moment. Everyone was called to be here at the end. Now it is a little different. The kaviraja came today, looked at Srila Prabhupada, and said his life is finished, but Srila Prabhupada himself has said Krishna may continue his life if He desires. I got here ahead of the others, but they're bound to show up in a few days. Hopefully His Divine Grace will improve in their presence.
TKG showed me a daily log they keep of what food he takes and what he passes as urine. He drinks about two glasses of liquid a day. Has not had more than that daily or any solid food for months. I'll be doing some of His Divine Grace's correspondence. TKG says that without a shirt on, Srila Prabhupada is so thin you can see the thumping of his heart. Hardly any flesh. I saw him lying in bed, very thin, but they are more hopeful today than they were.
