[fpmt] Update regarding Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s health 25 May 2011‏

Dear Friends,

Rinpoche circumambulates  3 times a day the relics for 30 mins. This requires no encouragement at all … it’s done with enthusiasm! Then needs to rest  … which is the same after each physio therapy session.  Now Rinpoche needs only a little support when walking short distances , longer distances a wheel chair is needed.

Last Thursday after the brace was fitted to Rinpoche’s right leg  by the Prosthetist Orthotist … Rinpoche said “when I came back from having the brace fitted I had a rest and  dreamt  of His Holiness, after the dream I was able to move 3 fingers (right hand) that I wasn’t able to move before  and also I could  read mantras quicker, so a little bit better, slight, but can’t tell how long”.  This was good news as not much was happening with the right arm, now there is a little more movement in certain directions … still a long way to go with the arm.

Speech is also slowly improving … still a slur. With all the exercises for leg, arm and speech it doesn’t take long for Rinpoche to tire … for the short time before tiring he does well, then tiredness sets in and the excises become difficult as no strength.

Rinpoche has not started acupuncture or Chinese medicine … saying according to his mo seems need to delay a little longer  before starting.

I would think now we will settle into a routine for the next month or 2 focusing on the physio and lots of rest.

Thank you

roger
