Mike’s Brother Jeff called, and gave me the latest. Seems our Dear Leader is doing very well. He’s in surgery today, as they’re sewing up all the pieces parts that they didn’t before. For those of you who don’t know, when they get all hacky-hacky-wackity with the axes and scalpels, they have to plug in a drain to get all the nasty out, especially in light of how much infection he had riding shotgun on him.
Also, his carcass responded to the meds exceptionally well, and the infection they were worried about in his back is going away nicely. He’s being moved OUT of the ICU here too to Room 6219 in the next 24-48 when he recovers from this round of stich-bitch sewing.
All and all, most excellent news.
Jeff also pulled rank on him so to speak, and actually got him to choke down Ye Olde ‘Ospital Gruel that most of us who’ve been in a ‘ospital know of… I’d rather be on the Omelet and Ham MRE than hospital grub. BUT it’s utterly necessary to get him back up to speed and strength. Jeff -also- got him some resistance bands for him to start working out and he did, so fear not gang, Mike’s now on the mend. Jeff said it’s be about another 7-10 days, and they’ll be transferring him to a rehab facility where the real fun begins…
So, as I gets intel, I’ll keep throwing it up here. Also, I’m using some of the donated cash to send Mike -something- as Jeff said no flowers nor Big Tiddied Whammenz has shown up. If I thought I could get away with it, I’d have a Doordash deliver a Double Bacon Greaseburger and a cold beer, but the docs might have issues with that… I’ll let y’all know when that goes, and get Jeff to take a picture or something if Mike’ll allow it.
More Later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
And I did this as well, we’ll see what happens?
BigCounty, I was just at the hospital a little while ago to visit Mike but he was in surgery. The nurse gave me room 6215 and that is where they are going to move him to after he was out of recovery. Not sure if that was just a typo on the room number.
I’ll follow up. Thanks for the H/U. Jeff gave me that at oh-dark early so things change? Either way mucho gracias!
I was there around 3pm and they had just moved him to recovery. Just want to make sure you had the right room number and don’t send a strip o’ gram or whatever to some little ole lady’s room. The nurse wrote it down for me and I talked to Jeff before I left but I would verify once he’s actually in the room since they’ve been shuffling him around.
Whelp, it’s a no-go on the strippers. I heard back (redacted as I needed my IRL info for billing and whatnot)
I’m heading up there tomorrow afternoon..if you can shoot me your email I’ll try to send you some updates
That is great news. Let’s hope it continues.
Thanks for the update!
That’s excellent news indeed. Keep it up, Mike, ya tough old galoot.
haven’t seen any updates in a while so I’ll go ahead and give a few. Mike had his final surgery on Tuesday and then Wednesday they removed most of the tubes etc. since he was doing much better. He said as soon as Saturday they would be moving him to a rehab center not far from the hospital where he’ll be for next 30 days. He sure can’t wait to get out of the hospital.
Thanks for that update! That is good news. You’re on the right track Mike, keep on keeping on.
Excellent news! Good luck with the rehab.
