The free ice cream machine is a bit clogged up at the moment, at least as far as this operator is concerned. One reason is that I’m busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, but that’s fine, and the other is that my beloved Mother-in-law just got admitted to ICU with massive pulmonary edema, which is definitely not fine. It’s horrible, and it has left all of us more than a bit out of sorts.

So if you have a spare prayer or good thought, please, please, PLEASE consider sending it up. LC Jackboot (whom I immediately called when I got the news yesterday) already got the Prayer Team™ running even though I called him in the middle of a radio show (I love ya, man), and I’m happy to report that it seems her situation has stabilized somewhat. Blood pressure is somewhat under control and her SATs look good too.

Prayers work.

In other news, so as to not leave you completely without reading, here’s a link to the Imperial Minister of Truth, Bill Whittle’s latest. As always, it’s a great read, but what infuriates me about it is that he manages to do something that has eluded me for decades, which is to sum up, IN ONE BLOODY SENTENCE, why socialism will never work and why its idea of “social justice” through “equality of outcome” is an inherently oppressive, fascist, tyrannical idea:

The slow runners cannot do better than their best. The only way to achieve equality of result – the world of “justice” that so many leftists long for – is to pull down everyone to the level of the slowest runner.

There. With ONE sentence he tells you all you need to know about why socialism belongs on the same trash heap that its sister ideology national socialism currently rots on, something that I’ve been trying to tell people for YEARS, using thousands upon thousands of words and column inches.

It’s a good thing I love him so much, or I would have to kill him.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Some very, VERY good news! The Empress called to check on the Sainted MIL, asking how she was doing, and the nurse there told her “she’s fine. Sitting right here, reading a book.” “Now’s not the time to joke around”, the incredulous Empress replied, seeing as how she’d been told by the attending last night that she’d be on the vent for at least a few days. “I’m not joking. She’s off the vent and sitting here reading a book”, the nurse replied.

G-d be praised! Last night, we didn’t know if she was going to make it at all and now, many many prayers later, she’s off the vent and doing better already! Thank you so much all of you, and G-d Bless you all! And thank you, G-d Almighty, for your mercy and love. Compared to how things were yesterday night, it’s nothing short of a bona fide miracle and yes, they do happen. Thanks to you, L-rd.

[Indeed they do, questions anyone?-JB]

    Emperor Misha I

    You find me wishing for the best and a quick recovery for your Mother-in-Law. My positive thoughts will be with you and your family in this trying period, rest assured. And of course, you will have the full support of the Empire, which is nothing to sneeze at!

    Don’t be too hard on yourself, you have written as good and as precise as this gent… Different styles, same message, and I am grateful for both, indeed a precious gift.

    Best wishes from Canada Sire…

    Sire-

    We’re working it hard and we won’t let up.

    Heaven had to open up another T-1 Line to handle the traffic and we fully intend to keep crowding that bandwidth.

    Thanks for the update AND the 24/7 rule, remains in effect Brother.

    O Lord, holy Father, creator of the universe, author of its laws, you can bring the dead back to life, and heal those who are sick. We pray for our sick sister that she may feel your hand upon her, renewing her body and refreshing her soul. Show to her the affection in which you hold all your creatures. Thy Will be done. Selah

    G-d Bless You all, in a most difficult time.

    ‘Grant the Family the strength to engage Mom with the smiles and serenity that would ease her soul, maybe finesse a smile of hope from under all them hoses.

    Healing takes so much more out of us during our later years; a reason to stay, glimpses of the joy yet to come are just as powerful of a medicine as any on the shelf.

    She can get that from the eyes of the loved ones around her.

    My brother, I am sending big hugs to you and the Lady Sophia… Make sure you try to get rest, too, so that you may offer your strength and encouragement to you MIL!

    Very pleased to hear she has improved Misha. I was just flabbergasted to hear of her downturn after your telling me the night before that she was doing well.

    Emperor,
    I’ve also have been doing that one-legged ass-kicking thing lately. I’ve been dropping by to keep up, but not posting much.

    You know my prayers were being added along with all the LC’s, maybe we were able to cause a bottleneck in the prayer line to G-d and he dealt with this quick to free up some space. :em93:

    I am so glad that Sophie’s Mom is doing better, it really does sound like a little miracle.

    My Mom was in the hospital a short while ago and had fluid pulled from around her lungs, the quacks said a three to six week recovery, hell she was home after 4 days. All to often I think it really does boil down to them just “practicing” medicine.

    As far as posting, you’ve put together a decent staff with B.C., Jackboot, Crunchie and I even DJ’s posts. They can keep us kids entertained if you’re busy.

    Emperor Misha,

    I’m late to the party but did send up a quick prayer for your beloved MIL. My mom actually went through something similar back in March. It was quite a scare– my sister called me (on behalf of the hospital) and said that I needed to get over there, NOW, if I wanted to say goodbye… Two days later, my mom was absolutely stir crazy, driving us all bugnuts and begging to go home. Today, you’d never know it to look at her. Here’s hoping for continued good news for the Empress’s Exalted Mother, from someone who’s been there.
