Prayers, please.

LCs, the report has come in that the Empress Sophie is in the hospital with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs.

Drop what you’re doing, and pray. We are over here at Chez Venomous.

    Dear God, please bring our sister through the physical afflictions you have allowed to be visited upon her. Give her physicians the wisdom and insight needed to bring their best efforts to that end. And in all things, not our will, but yours, Father. Amen.

    Sophie is probably more pissed about being in the hospital than having blood clots. Prayers have been issued. If reading material is needed Emperor let me know.

    Prayers going out here, and have asked our loyal listeners on Radio CIA to also send their prayers up for Sophie. G-d promised us that whenever two or more of us agree, He will step in. We’re claiming that promise tonight!

    Never said that, said I don’t believe in any given Religion! You need to check on Atheist vs Agnostic!

    There is a God out there Good Buddy, I just don’t believe that any given Religion has the fast track to whatever he/she/it is! One thing I do believe is that force would not abandon Sophie as it needs Misha to fight the good fight!

    And I will have his back!

    ‘So true for all of us.
    Gratefully, our physical helplessness never diminishes our genuine concern and earnest hopes for the best, and our support for the others who are rightly alarmed about Sophie’s condition.
    She’s an irreplaceable part of a BIG THING called “Us”.
    We need her too, and want her to be returned to us by any means, technology or faith,, dang,, I’d dance afire in a puddle of 90wt if I thought it’d bring her to health.
    If our thoughts ever changed anything at all, let’s focus them on the magic that Sophie’s brought to each of our own little worlds.
    She MUST remain for a loooong time.
    Our earnest hope.

    Thank you guys. You are amazing! I’ll keep you updated. So far, no new crises and, G-d willing, although we had another clot today worse then the other ones but that’s under control now it seems, she’ll be in therapeutic range shortly and back home with her family.

    As to the financial side. I can’t begin to express my gratitude, but please please please don’t go out of your way. We’re alright at this point and there are so many other people, a lot of yourselves included I’m sure, who need help a lot more than we do right now.

    We are of course greatly appreciative. We can’t, my entire family, as a matter of fact, thank you enough, but I also can’t stress enough how the main thing is the warming, encouraging thought of all of you just being there. Every prayer, every good wish, every kind word. It means more than the world and I know that even if things, G-d forbid, get worse, we’ll be alright. Nobody can ever be defeated with people like all of you on their side.

    G-d’s will be done, and we’ll pull through. This is nothing compared to what thousands of families go through every day, and we have the moral support of the best people in the world. Already I’m hopeful that this will be over soon and things will get back to normal and, if they do, I’ll know who to thank for it as well as G-d. I’m scared, of course, though not as scared as my beloved wife, but I also know that we have a lot of great people cheering for us.

    G-d Bless You!

    I woke up this morning, clearing the amnesia from my head, then thought of Sophie. The computer loaded up as I tended to tasks all too familar, The Lords Prayer running through my mind….This ones for Sophie, Lord……the Rott popped up…….
    Wondering how Misha’s sons are doing, remembering what I felt once at their age, fear and uncertainty.
    In a very real sense this proves a trip down memory lane, grateful all suffering is over, saddened with the final result.
    And I remember the fear, both personal and financial……
    How blessed I felt knowing I could prove of assistance…….
    Remembering what all of you did……..
    Misha is right……pacing Stanfords corridors for months at a time, more than once the thought of all of you giving me strength…..just knowing, they are out there, caring and watching.
    Despite my best efforts to the contrary, you people brought out the best in me……I honestly don’t know how I did it. I truly don’t.
    I have little doubt Misha and the offspring will spoil Sophie rotten on her return home. There may be some permanent changes, medical needs and such. Stock up, Sire. I hope she runs with it…queen of the house, also knowing The Boss will never look at his wife the same way again……
    How fortunate and privileged I feel knowing I have earned the title….Rottie……

    Yes, Cave, I’m home. The twins are fine, especially now they have their mom back from the hospital :)

    The clots were caused by a DVT which started dissolving and breaking up after she’d been discharged the first time over a week ago after less than 24 hours of observation. Not too happy about that, to put it very mildly. All was well for a few days when suddenly she started getting chest pain, which is when we had to go back to the hospital (a different one this time!), where they found the PEs, followed by yet another one yesterday. But she’s been stable for 24 hours and her INRs are where they should be, so they let her come home on condition that she doesn’t do anything. Spoiling time :D

    Thanks again, all of you!

    Please play it for all who are lying down in fear and worry tonight.

    When at night I go to sleep
    Fourteen angels watch do keep
    Two my head are guarding
    Two my feet are guiding
    Two are on my right hand
    Two are on my left hand
    Two who warmly cover
    Two who o’er me hover
    Two to show me when I rise
    The way to heavenly Paradise.

    Sleeping softly, then it seems
    Heaven enters in my dreams;
    Angels hover round me,
    Whisp’ring they have found me;
    Two are sweetly singing,
    Two are garlands bringing,
    Strewing me with roses
    As my soul reposes.
    God will not forsake me
    When dawn at last will wake me
