Health Scare

Few Clouds, 11°C

Acintya Rūpa had a bit of a health scare yesterday, with severe chest pain adjacent to her heart. On the advice of her doctor she went to the Alfred Hospital Emergency Unit to have it checked. The service and facilities are first class. It’s changed very much for the better since I was there over a decade ago. She was very well received and looked after.
One of the friendly team delivered her evening meal. She mentioned she was a vegetarian. He told her that he also was vegetarian. He arranged a vegetarian option for her. As it turned out the orderly regularly eats at Crossways and Gopal’s when he can afford it. He’s visited the temple as well. Unfortunately he had his brand new $300 shoes stolen. Yet, when he saw me leaving the short stay unit, he chanted, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, loudly and enthusiastically enough so that everyone nearby looked up to see what was going on. There are devotees everywhere.
