That’s What Happens When You Allow Yourself to Think that Things are Looking Up

Here we were, thinking everything was well, and then the chest pains came back. Back to the ER, third time this go around (we ought to get a plaque or a frequent flier rebate. The latter would be particularly great).

They did the whole nine yards. Enzymes, EKG, X-ray and CT angio and, thank G-d, found nothing to suggest a new blockage, but that didn’t change the fact that we both got scared out of our wits because, once you’re in danger of getting another clot or embolism, every twinge of pain is going to make you wonder what it is.

Need a break. And sleep. But most of all I need my honey to be well again.

Keep the faith, Oh Emperor. Pray, and think healing thoughts. There’s a plan out there – we just don’t get to know all of it.

I’ll add my pagan’s prayers to the volley. On the waaaaaay!

, it’s my stamina that wobbles ever so slightly from time to time Brother, do I ever hear that! Sleep in a chair by the side of her bed, that way you can hold her hand while she sleeps. Worked for me, a bit hard on the neck though. Learned a few tricks living at a hospital. Let us pray… Read more »

In my case it’s my father I worry about. 86 years old and he broke his hip two weeks ago. They operated on him but the odds of him coming out of it were poor to say the least. He has congestive heart failure. Yesterday the doctors were happy, his heart is up to 80% rather than the 40% efficiency… Read more »

Thank God it wasn’t another embolism, Misha. No, literally thank God. In public. And those who are offended by the very mention of God, let them pound sand.

Beth and I have the old prayer wheel spinning for You and Sophie.

My mother is in the hospital at the moment too, and living three hours away has made it tough; can’t be there every day to support her and Dad.

Sire,

You don’t have to reveal anything here, but what caused the blood clots, do the doctors know yet? Sophie seems too young to be getting this.

compared to you and Mary, is nothing. Boss……with due respect I differ…… Anything threatening your mates life is deadly serious. Embolisms can be life threatening, Sire, as we all know. Heart attacks, strokes, all sorts of medical unpleasantries. I’m glad she is receiving medical attention, for seconds can make a lifetime of difference………….and if my guess is correct, you are… Read more »

Misha, I agree with Cave … anything that threatens your loved ones is serious business. I, too, thank God that everything is alright and that the cause of the problem has been identified and corrected. Prayers still go up to Him for you all.

Misha- We’ve been through so much together have we not? It’s that difficult road that our L-rd and Master places before us to forge us into a form where we are of more use to Him. We both know this and it’s awful. That form we cannot know, nor how many strikes His Divine plan takes to reach it’s final… Read more »

Oh, Mish! Just hang in there. I never know what to say in times like this other than I’m here for you, and that never seems enough. You’re in my thoughts. Always.

Truly I’m sorry to hear this, Misha. My heart goes out to you, as I am living something very much like your situation. You and yours are in my prayers, and if I can help you, I will.

Well here’s something that might perk you up.

I pray for you and Sophie – it seems on many fronts. Both Sophie’s health, and the weather. When not praying formally, I keep the prayers on constant cycle in the background of my mind.

Misha….I’d be willing to be your lady is more worried about her children than herself. And then there’s you….care and feeding sort of thing……We guys aren’t generally known for proper eating habits, etc. Great for cutting the grass and such…but need a keeper.

Love and hugs from the Wubie and me. We have seen the inside of too many hospitals and it just never gets comfy. I know that your family is safe in God’s hands as is mine. I also know that it’s hard to feel that way when stuff happens. Prayers of hope and healing are headed your way.
