I'm glad that you're still with us. Scary, scary stuff.

Get well, I'll meet you at 7 Grand and buy you a beer.
 
2013-03-20 03:53:15 PM  

Dancin_In_Anson: Glad to hear that you're getting better. Come back to Texas and (since I missed it the first time) we'll try to light SchlingFocker on fire again so we can both enjoy it!


Oh man, I might come for that.

I had a staph infection almost kill me. 11 days in hospital and two surgeries. I took so many antibiotics, I didn't see a zit for two years and that was fine w/ me since I got the infection from a zit! We are really fragile beings and I too would have had a harder time had it not been for all the support I got while I was sick. Hang in there you farker. You can do this. http://youtu.be/-hjqrxfvJ0A

Sensei: Oh man, I might come for that.


Eyewitness reports say it was quite the scene.
 
2013-03-20 04:08:13 PM  

smells_like_meat: Here I am 4 months after getting sick. 50 pounds down, still in a chair with my guard dogs.  Walked a mile last week. After a year. Felt good.

Let's hope that V_B recovers faster. This stuff is no joke.

Every time I see that picture, it reminds me of my two Shepherds. (who look exactly like his from the coloring to size)  Good boys!

/glad to here he's doing better
 
2013-03-20 04:12:44 PM  
Hey Vincent,

I'll be glad to help out by fulfilling any "husbandly duties" in your bedroom.

Would want her to cheat on ya cause she's frustrated!

/actually would probably remind
her how lucky she's married to you ;)
//yes I have no class.
 
2013-03-20 04:20:55 PM  
I am so glad to hear things are looking up.  Get better or I'm gonna come to your house and beat you up.

Love,
Feasy

FishWife here. V_B asked me to pass on this message to all you fine folks:  "I love you all very much. Those I haven't met, I intend to meet. Your generosity is overwhelming. Beer's on me when I get outta this mess.  And Drew ---- where the hell are ya?"
 
2013-03-20 04:22:30 PM  
Good to hear he's getting better.
 
2013-03-20 04:27:03 PM  
Ugh... I hadn't heard about this.

Glad he's feeling better. And if you see Death, kick him in the balls and tell him to GTFO.
 
2013-03-20 04:29:48 PM  
Hey, v_b - beer's on you when this is all over? Funny, you don't strike me as a sloppy drunk, ya big galoot! :P

You've only been propositioned twice. Everyone must be on their meds today. Wait till it his the main page after work. those guys are deviated preverts.
 
2013-03-20 04:44:52 PM  
I will accept any BIE for Vincent Blackshadow and send them along as he recovers as a way to set goals for him.

I promise that I won't look at any.

EIP.
 
2013-03-20 04:49:01 PM  
FishWife-- Awesome user name! Tell Mr. B that I am using my naughty bunny mug daily in tribute. I, too, have two grown sons who turned out well in spite of me.

The Husband had MRSA in his NOSE two years ago. We caught it quickly..but he was pretty miserable for awhile. And I never want to pack a nose-wound again.  bleargh. That right there, is a testament to how much I love the man. In other words...message me if you need someone to talk to!
 
2013-03-20 04:49:05 PM  
Continued bestest wishes for a speedy recovery my friend. You've been a huge help with so many things I can't even count, not the least of which was being the official sunglasses bearer at my wedding. We'll be seeing you both soonish and have the mother of all fark parties.

E-Brake: which was being the official sunglasses bearer at my wedding

If I had known that he was going I would have shown up in a gurney because that's how I felt that day.

Roman Fyseek: I promise that I won't look at any


No, boobies. How about some hot wet beaver?

I shall be in my bunk.
 
2013-03-20 05:07:50 PM  
So glad you're on the mend. I hope to see you at another Fark party soon.
 
2013-03-20 05:19:59 PM  
Hooray!! We'll been down soon to celebrate, as soon as you guys are up to it, we'll meet at the Redwood for a beer. :) Sending love from the whole family.
 
2013-03-20 05:22:04 PM  

ffish: WTF Indeed: smells_like_meat: BTW if anyone here asks for naked pictures of yourself, send them a picture of your elbow. They wont know the difference.

Then take that picture and place it in a folder, then zip the folder, then place the zipped folder in another folder and zip that.  Do that about 20 times, it's like a Russian nesting egg of failure for the creepy men of TF.

"Russian nesting egg of failure for the creepy men of TF" is the name of my Tatu cover band.

And get well soon, V_B. Next time I'm down in LA I'll take you out for a beer.


You. I'm back.

Bathia_Mapes: Fondle My Sweaters: Holy crap...this is the first I'm hearing about this.  That's terrifying.  Vincent_blackshadow is a great guy, and I'm glad he's doing better.  I'll keep both him and his wife in my thoughts.

Here's the main page thread.


I owe you a thank you, so--thank you!
 
2013-03-20 05:27:04 PM  
Thank you kindly for the update, smells_like_meat!  Glad to hear that things are improving for v_b.

vinny, you and the missus and all-a-y'all will be in my thoughts and prayers.  Take care out there, buddy, and speediest of recoveries to ya.


smells_like_meat: Here I am 4 months after getting sick. 50 pounds down, still in a chair with my guard dogs. Walked a mile last week. After a year. Felt good.


All the best to you as well, s_l_m.  You take care, too - cheers!

Wait, I have to send BIE?

Okay, but do I need to shave'em first?

TsuZi: You. I'm back.


\o/

If you're driving down to LA, swing through SF if you can (I know it's kinda out of the way, but we throw a good party).
 
2013-03-20 05:34:35 PM  

smells_like_meat: Had a long talk with Vincent_blackshadow's wife. He's doing better. They were going to take the endotracheal tube (breathing tube) out yesterday but decided to leave it in for a while as a precaution. He is on dialysis three times a week, because the infection went from his lungs to his kidneys, but that may end soon. So, all in all, slow but positive progress.
I had this shiat (MRSA) and it is no joke. At the worst they told my wife to make funeral arrangements. Cancer, heart disease and the like can be prevented and treated but medical science has no clue about this stuff. It comes out of nowhere, hits the perfectly healthy, and a fact that they'd like to keep hidden, kills most victims. Death rate is about 30% during the first 30 days. Bad, bad odds, much worse than most anything else, and I think that the mortality rate is understated I was lucky that I had a world class infectious disease doctor on my case. He calls me his "once in a life time miracle patient". I will need to take oral antibiotics for the rest of my life and get a monthly blood test.

Vincent is one of the lucky ones. His wife is reading these posts to him so post your good wishes and snark here. He's over the hump, but let me tell you, his recovery will be long and hard.


Damn!  MRSA?!  *grimaces*  Get well v_b.
 
2013-03-20 05:35:15 PM  
definitely one the truest and coolest folks around here, I was gutted when i saw the initial thread.  i went to LA recently and emailed him, and thought it mighty unlike him not to answer, but unfortunately when i saw the thread the answer was evident.

let's get together sooner rather than later friend, have some laughs and suds on the beach.

warmth, humor, and strength from the heart of the sonoran desert.

Starryeyes: I expect to be able to wish you a happy birthday this summer, mkay?



hey wait a minute....isn't he also in "the club" *wink*?

mums the word, capisce.  you know.  operation codename:  yadthriB yppaH?
 
2013-03-20 05:40:40 PM  
I've got my fingers crossed that things continue to improve.
 
2013-03-20 05:43:26 PM  
Keep getting better!
 
2013-03-20 05:45:33 PM  
I had MRSA on my face one year ago. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Good luck, feel better, and godspeed.
 
2013-03-20 05:47:02 PM  
Since it's been a while, and he's in here, I thought I would brighten all your days!  Good news V_B!

(See if you can find him)

Kick it's ass, sir.  We need you around because there's more beer out there to drink.  I'm almost positive I still owe you a Duvel.

I see what you did there.  Staph infection.  Long and hard.
 
2013-03-20 05:48:22 PM  
V_B,hang in there. I'm generally a liter and a lurker and I have yet to attend a Fark Party, but I pay attention. You're one of the good 'uns.

I'm sorry to hear about your illness and glad to hear things are on the mend.

/Wish I had some snark to share, but I'm tapped out thanks to a 24-hour GI bug I picked up. So as miserable as I've been, I feel about 1/10,000th of your pain.

I've been keeping tabs since day one. Fish Wife and I are going to be going over his insurance coverage and claims as soon as she has a minute to breathe. I'm sure he could still use donations if there's any money to be squeezed from Farkers further, but it sounds like for the most part we're just worried about the $7500 deductible. I'll have to look at the actual insurance verification to see what the patient responsibility is after that, but it shouldn't be too scary.

That being said, V_B and Fish_Wife, I hope the opportunity arises for me to meet you two in person. I'll buy a couple of beers for each of ya.

Hang in there, V_B!
 
2013-03-20 06:07:45 PM  
Good

I can think of at least one Marisa whom I wouldn't mind being on my face.
 
2013-03-20 06:14:51 PM
