Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham seer Jayendra Saraswati is on the road to recovery. The pontiff who fainted while performing a puja in Vijayawada on Tuesday, is undergoing treatment in the intensive care unit of the hospital. If all goes well, he would be discharged from the hospital by evening or latest by Thursday morning.

Doctors who examined Jayendra Saraswati on Wednesday morning, said that his health condition has improved considerably. Eminent nephrologist and NTR University of Health Sciences T Raviraj who examined the functioning of vital organs of the seer, stated that he was responding to the treatment and the ventilator has been removed on Tuesday evening itself.

The doctors said that sodium and blood sugar levels have been restored to normal following treatment since Tuesday morning. The pontiff is on liquid diet through oral intake and it has been decided that he should be given solids on Wednesday. “A decision on discharging him would be taken in the evening after examining his condition,” the doctors said.
