Via email from Rob Eaton:
Bishop Schofield was admitted to the hospital Sunday night. He has been diagnosed with gall stones and a light case of pneumonia in one lung. We would ask that at this time, you not visit him in the hospital and that cards be sent to the office:
c/o June Waltenberger
4159 E. Dakota Ave.
Fresno, CA 93726
They will be delivered to him daily.
Thank you for your prayers on his behalf.

Here are the prayers I posted on L&B when I got the news. I thought using the 1928 BCP seemed most appropriate
I have no other news than what Greg has
The following prayers are from the 1928 BCP service for the visitation of the sick:
Minister. O Lord, save thy servant;
Answer. Who putteth his trust in thee.
Minister. Send him help from thy holy place;
Answer. And evermore mightily defend him.
Minister. Let the enemy have no advantage of him;
Answer. Nor the wicked approach to hurt him.
Minister. Be unto him, O Lord, a strong tower;
Answer. From the face of his enemy.
Minister. O Lord, hear our prayer.
Answer. And let our cry come unto thee.
O LORD, look down from heaven, behold, visit, and relieve this thy servant John-David. Look upon him with the eyes of thy mercy, give him comfort and sure confidence in thee, defend him in all danger, and keep him in perpetual peace and safety; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
HEAR us, Almighty and most merciful God and Saviour; extend thy accustomed goodness to this thy servant who is grieved with sickness. Visit him, O Lord, with thy loving mercy, and so restore him to his former health, that he may give thanks unto thee in thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
SANCTIFY, we beseech thee, O Lord, the sickness of this thy servant; that the sense of his weakness may add strength to his faith, and seriousness to his repentance; and grant that he may dwell with thee in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
HEAR, O Lord, we beseech thee, these our prayers, as we call upon thee on behalf of this thy servant; and bestow upon him the help of thy merciful consolation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Heavenly Father, look upon Thy servant our beloved Bishop John-David with Thy mercy and comfort him in his affliction. Give unto him rest from the battles at hand, protection from all assaults of his enemies and restore him to health in Thy time. Vouchsafe to keep that which he has committed unto Thee until he is able to take it up again. We ask this in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. AMEN
