chacham-ovadiah-yosefAs Klal Yisroel continues to daven for a refuah sheleimah for Rav Chaim Ovadiah ben Georgia, Rav Ovadiah’s Yosef’ son, Sefardic Chief Rabbi Rav Yitzchak Yosef, in his shiur last night which he delivered in place of his father, reported some good news.

“[My father] opened his eyes for a few seconds this morning,” said Rav Yitzchak, “and he moved his arm. Several days ago, the physicians did not give him a chance, and now, baruch Hashem, we are seeing some improvement.”

Rav Yitzchak added that it is “all in the zechus of tefillah. Keep davening.”

Chacham Ovadiah, who recently turned 93, is being cared for in the Intensive Care Unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Yerushalayim. He has been treated for blood pressure problems, kidney failure, heart rate, and other ailments.

Last Monday, he was anesthetized and fitted with a respirator. The chances of his health improving significantly were rated very low by doctors last Thursday.

However, Dr. Dan Gilon, the cardiologist in charge of Chacham Ovadiah, said on Motzoei Shabbos that the rav is in the process of waking up from his medically-induced coma, as some of the medications that had been prescribed are being administered in lower doses.

Dr. Gilon said that Chacham Ovadiah is till is “serious to very serious,” condition, but he added that, baruch Hashem, certain positive signs are being seen, primarily his gradual return to consciousness.

All are asked to keep davening for Rav Chaim Ovadiah ben Georgia.
