We’ve been informed, much to our chagrin, that our very good friend LC Rurik is in a VA hospital in need of our prayers. Nothing life-threatening, from what we understand, but serious nonetheless.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Project your healing powers through the hands and minds of the health care professionals taking care of our friend in this his hour of need. Grant our friend strength to pull through to a speedy and full recovery.

In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ,

    LC RURIK, hurry and finish up with those VA Nurses, we need you back here in the trenches. Get well soon my friend, give us a shout and let us know how cute those nurses are. Insist on a daily sponge bath and remember, sometimes a slap is worth it.

    Your friend

    LC Subotai Bahadur says:

    I don’t think Rurik is chasing VA nurses. The VA is one of the models for Obama/MengeleCare, and I don’t think that they would have cute nurses because that might revive your will to live. In any case Rurik, get well and rejoin us here on the battlelines, and over at that other place where we are taking on Dan Rather who has just called for the Federal government to take over the media in order to save a “free press” from the evil bloggers.

    [I figure that last will raise his blood pressure enough to get him to come out of the hospital! :em93: ]

    In regards to LC Mrs. M-ITT™-Imperial Sniper’s comment @ :

    This is my first post here, but I’ve lurked off and on for quite some time. Great site and my kind of patriots.

    Anyway, Rurik is a good friend of many years. I talked with him this evening on his room phone and told him of all the post and comments of wishing him well. He asked me to convey to you all his deepest appreciation. The Docs have confirmed that he had a minor stroke. There seems to be a blockage of some sort in the temporal lobe. Prognosis is for a substanial recovery. He initially was to be hospitalized for 2-3 days, but as of today they are saying it may be a bit longer. The goal post keep moving. Seems they’re trying to stablize his blood pressure. Of course if you know Rurik then you know the hospital is one of the last places he would like to be. He had a standoff with the staff over being told he must be pushed around in a wheelchair for test. After the “skirmish” he finally conceded. LOL you’ll have to rag him about that later. It also seems some of the VA nursing staff knew his MD Specialist father who practiced there years back. That is good, but after finding that out the nurse proceeded to stab him in the stomach with a big needle of heperin (sp?). He didn’t like that too much either. Rurick is in good spirits and looks forward to returning soon.

    With friends like everyone here pulling in favors, I’m sure he’s going to be much better. Thanks to you all.

    Rurik…I’ve been thinking about you and praying for you over the entire day. Being at a hospital makes you think of such things, all my friends here with sick loved ones, my present travails over the last two months and counting. Here you are, looking after your mother, and now this. You are one hell of a man, my friend. And I do miss your e-mails………

    Thank you for the update. I, like everyone else, very much appreciate it. What a relief.

    LC HJ Caveman82952-

    Don’t think I’ve slacked off with my prayers for Mary. I hope she comes home soon.

    Terrible Troy-

    strokes, i know what your going through. be patient Rurik, it takes time for the brain to rewire around the damaged parts and it is an up and down process. some days will be better than others but there will be bad days too. pay attention to what your body is telling you.
    god bless and keep you safe.
