Deej

I, like all of you, promised Deej that I would not make a big deal out of his condition, and I’m not. He’s still the same old Deej as far as everything else goes. But his wife just left this in the open thread.

My husband of 45 years is currently in a coma following a liver transplant. This was the place where he counted the most of his friends. While he is a fervent agnostic, I ask for your prayers for his recovery.

So please pray for Dave, and when he comes back remember our promise to him.

Thanks pups.

My husband of 45 years is currently in a coma following a liver transplant

Is that normal?

Best wishes for his recovery, and for his wife and family.

On the way. I hope and pray for DJ’s full recovery.

@Haranguer: I don’t know if the coma is normal, but husband of 45 years is a pretty rare sight nowadays. Here’s hoping for many more.

I miss him……..sure is quiet around here sometimes without Dave to check blood pressure, other vitals… :em05:
I thought about him this morning, sent good thoughts his way……..
He may be a liberal…but he’s our liberal…..
Besides, I like him….

So I pray for them.

I’m glad he got his transplant! Liver transplants are TOUGH – and as others have said, he may be a Lib, but he’s OUR Lib. Partly because he has chosen to be a Liberal because of his intellectual analysis of issues. He lacks the hypocrisy and dogmatic dedication to idiocy that marks modern Liberalism. I think that’s why he fits… Read more »

Sometimes the patient is purposely put in a coma for a while after traumatic surgery.
‘Sure hope this is Deej’s case.
I’m not inclined to believe he’d give up any discussion this soon: Last word kind’a guy n’ all.

The Empire goes quietly for days on end, turn your back to attend oter matters, and all hell breaks loose.
My appreciation has always been limited, but still … as Caveman said, Deej is our Liberal and the House troll. So today even Rurik prays for Deej to recover.

Everything I said here, doubled and redoubled. And all praise to $DEITY that DJ was able to find a transplant. And our thoughts also go to you, Deneen, as you help nurse him back to health.

Best wishes to DJ on a speedy recovery, and to Deneen, I wish you the strength and peace of mind to see it through. Kidney transplants are among the most major of surgeries, and I sincerely hope DJ is on the comeback trail. Thank you, Deneen, for keeping us up to speed. I am looking forward to his return.

A little late to the news, so I’ll just send up a prayer for his speedy recovery. Deneen says: He isn’t talking yet, No talking is good for you, I just wish he would forget how to use a keyboard….

In major surgery cases, ICU staff often put patients in a drug induced coma, to ensure they keep a close eye on him, do post op observations, and to allow the body to heal. It’s SOP.

He isn’t talking yet,

All in good time.

All I need is the word and this entire post will, erm, have never happened, so to speak.

I certainly won’t have any recollection of having ever seen it, no Ma’am 🙂

Someone will have to divulge to him that the donor was a far-right conservative…

…but only after he’s strong enough to withstand the shock!

Not to worry, DJ, I’ll drink to MayDay for ya. Because that’s the kind of compassionate conservative I am. You just rest and get strong because who knows when Misha is gunna push the wrong button around here.

Go easy on the missus Dj. Her behavior was motivated by LOVE. Rest well, recover fast, and get your heiny back in the fucking game. This place is less without your presence.

Been a tad eventful hereabouts during your absence, Dave.
I can only imagine what you felt getting a new lease on life after a phone call.
And your wife loves you a lot, you old rogue……!
Good to hear from you…now back to our regularly scheduled programming…..
