Mystical Paths was saddened to hear of the leading Torah Gadol HaRav Ovadiah Yosef having a major health incident…
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, 92, was hospitalized on Saturday morning after feeling ill, suffered a minor stroke, a hospital official said. The rabbi has undergone extensive testing and he is fully conscious and communicative.
A source …said the rabbi felt numbness in his left hand around 2:30 am Saturday but refused to go to the hospital or call a doctor on Shabbat. He felt ill at the synagogue during the morning's prayer. A doctor who was among the worshippers asserted that Yosef was suffering a stroke and that he should be taken to the hospital.
On motzei Shabbos, the condition of the Gadol Hador is described as stable and the rav is conscious and alert.

The rav was discharged from the hospital within the last hour, the hospital said. Earlier today (Sunday morning), the rabbi stepped out of his hospital room and greeted his well-wishers.
Mystical Paths wishes HaRav Ovadia a speedy and complete refuah!
