His brother just posted the following in the thread on the Farkistan forums

I just came back from the hospital. They have the cap in the trach, it is SOOOO good to hear his voice. They removed the vent from the room while I was there and he is now completely off sedatives. The first thing he said to me this morning was "Do you have any idea how bad I want a beer?"

He is in very good spirits, joking with the docs and nurses. Now that he's able to talk he is really chatty. We spent almost 3 hours just talking and catching up. He's still a little loopy once in a while, but is mostly lucid.

I told him about this thread and his greenlight and how you all have been such great support. He asked me to send a big thank you to all you guys.

Thankyou to everyone who donated and sent well wishes in the first thread.

beve: They popped a cap in his trach?

I read that as pooped.
2009-12-13 06:04:45 PM  
So I guess I cannot have his stuff? Good job, Fats Domino.
2009-12-13 06:05:01 PM  
Glad you're OK. I just donated a bit just to help with your bills.
2009-12-13 06:05:57 PM

Get well and drink a few on us! Glad to see things are improving. I know all too well how crappy (and dangerous!) pneumonia can be.
2009-12-13 06:07:10 PM  
I'm new here, but how long was he out for?
2009-12-13 06:08:00 PM  
Dominee is
2009-12-13 06:12:14 PM

So I'm getting a kick

mypalmike: Glad you're OK. I just donated a bit just to help with your bills.

Oh. I did not realize there was a place to donate. $25 coming your way! (new window) Medical bills are insanely high and if I recall he did not have insurance. Consider filing bankruptcy. Really.

It's the holidays and I'm in the giving spirit! I could have used that $25.00 for six months of TotalFark, but he needs it more than I do.
2009-12-13 06:13:51 PM  
obviously faking it...

just kidding...glad to hear he's awake again. Happy Holidays!!!
2009-12-13 06:15:02 PM

Ask and you shall receive.

//Keep getting better

2009-12-13 06:23:24 PM  
Great to hear!
2009-12-13 06:23:46 PM  
I don't drink but if that's what they want then dammit, give it to them already! Great news for Farkistan!
2009-12-13 06:24:15 PM  
Hooray! I'm so happy to hear it, I'd been wondering about this for a while now.
