We were in for more suprises today when Vladika informed us that the doctor decided, at the last minute, that he should remain in hospital a bit longer. So, let us hope and pray that he can return soon and be in good enough health to be out of the care of the hospital.  Our dear old octogenarians arrived shortly after noon with baskets full of food—soup, salads, and countless pirozhki—which is how they show their hospitality.  Soon after they left, Archbishop Irinee arrived with Deacon Nicholas and they visited us for some time while seated at the table and enjoying the piroshki.
