Good Thoughts and Prayers Needed

First, we have a request for LC Draco who, LC Aggie Sith informs us, is undergoing surgery for an aneurysm. Having some training in the medical arts myself, I can only say that he’s lucky to have made it to the “undergoing surgery” part, but that doesn’t mean that he’s out of the woods. Prayers would be much appreciated.

Second, another brother of ours who shall remain nameless but is chock full of bona fides (OpSec, particularly in these days), asks that we please offer our prayers for his dad-in-law Syd and his daughter. Syd is in hospice now, but some prayers for him would still not be amiss. Prayers for a miracle or, at the very least, a gentle passing.

And on that note, seeing as how the culprit in Syd’s case is prostate cancer, I’m happy to pass on an urge to male Rotties to swallow your damn pride when the time comes for “bend over and let me stick this finger up your you-know-what.” Sure, it’s an indignity. But not near as bad as dying too soon because it got diagnosed too late. Being of the age where that will pretty soon be a part of my own annual checkup, I appreciate the reminder, because it was something that I really, really wasn’t looking forward to. But I’ll do it. If not for my own sake, then for the sakes of those who for some inexplicable reason would like for me to hang around for a bit longer.

I owe them that much.

Having some training in the medical arts myself

Darth Misha medically trained? There’s a long-kept secret!

And regarding prostates: My current doctor noted how smooth mine was. :em01:

Thank you, Misha. News to report are not good.

It wasn’t an aneurysm, but a tear in a vessel. He has not roused from the anaesthesia and the EEG is recording seizure activity. I will know more after the CT scan, but right now things do not look promising 🙁

My beautiful brother is absolutely right, folks. Yeah, y’all hate the thought of some hairy dude violating your delicate starfish with his pudgy fingers, but please, PLEASE do it! As my family doctor told me when I was a teenager and scared to death to go to the OBGYN for the first time, “It’s a doctor. To them, it’s just… Read more »

Prayers for Draco, always

As for the rest, I have it done each year and blood tests to check PSA.

Now if the doc can get my bloody thyroid levels sorted….

Mrs.C and I hope he’s on his feet shouting orders soon.

Oh, and of course, all good thoughts to those who have fallen ill!

I failed to mention that in my zeal to ensure that everyone who needs to, gets their asshole fingered. I’m insensitive.

First of all, prayers for Draco and Syd. I myself am a prostate cancer survivor (hopefully for a lot longer time) having surgery this past November and 8 weeks of radiation treatments ending in May. I have been getting checked annually for at least 4 years then one day, my PSA was at 8 and my prostate was not normal… Read more »

Draco update: CT scan shows bleeding has not stopped. His survival chances are about 25%. He has yet to wake up, as well. This doesn’t look good, but at least he is still breathing on his own. If he stays stable they will once again try to close the tear on Friday. Thank y’all for all your thoughts, prayers, good… Read more »

Update on Draco:

His pupils are even and responsive, which means cranial swelling has gone down. Also, he is responding to pain stimuli. Docs will see if they can repair the tear tomorrow. Thanks for your prayers, everyone!!

Will send prayers!
