(Imgur)   Farker vincent_blackshadow is on the mend. Not only has he charmed nurses into stealing bacon for him, they've also turned a blind eye so he could have his first beer since he was admitted to the ICU on Feb 7th. DIT   (i.imgur.com) divider line 160

Quick backstory, vincent_blackshadow was admitted to the hospital on Superbowl Sunday with MRSA. Original link here. It was touch and go there for a while, and he spent 3 weeks in ICU before being moved for recovery. Rumor has it that he may be discharged a week from Monday, and be able to sleep in his own bed for the first time in far, far too long.

In the mean time, the Fark community has banded together in the past week, to raise over $12,400 towards his medical costs. If anyone would like to contribute, it isn't too late. Please direct your PayPal to vblacks­hadow*fun­d­rai­s­er[nospam-﹫-backwards]liamg*com (you'll have to manually type this out, as Fark code won't let you copypasta it in order to befuddle 'bots.

UPDATE from his missus, fishwife:
"Many, many thanks to you, ... for all you have done.  The insurance claims are starting to roll in now, and I figured out that we have a $2,500 deductible to cover, and then $5,000 on top of that before the insurance starts picking up the sizable tab (thank GOD we've got good insurance).  I don't know if v_b's going to have to continue with dialysis on an outpatient basis after he comes home, so each and every donation to this amazing fundraiser is going to be put to good use.  Bless you."


Thank everyone so much for the well-wishes, the candles, the cards, the posterboards, the chocolates, and the financial donations. Each and everyone is is greatly appreciated for many reasons.

Thank you.

Also, I promise to have the DIT typed up before I submit the link, next time. Sheesh.

Sounds like good news. Hope he gets home soon. :)

You've left out the most important detail - what kind of beer?


Keep getting better brother!!
 
2013-03-23 10:24:12 PM  
Glad to hear it. And here I thought people went to the hospital to get MRSA.
 
2013-03-23 10:24:46 PM  
Woo!! It's that normalcy of having a beer that shows he's getting better/on the mend.

Alright, so, for the fun of it (and since it is Saturday) - y'all want to post pics of yourselves toasting with your beverage of choice tonight? v_b and fishwife will see this thread... :D
 
2013-03-23 10:26:52 PM  
That is one way to get out of a Super bowl bet I suppose.

Despite the terrible joke I sincerely hope he has a speedy recovery.

ffish: Okay, $12500, but HOW MUCH BIE??


I'd consider sending BIE. Mostly cause I'm too broke to donate.

It's the kind of one-stop shopping I can most certainly do without.

I didn't know it was MRSA. I got that last year, and still haven't gotten completely over it.
I was in rough shape.
They even called my family in to say goodbye.

The original link has been posted in the thread. There is another fundraiser for V_B as well, with an incentive to donate. Here's a link to that as well.
 
2013-03-23 11:59:06 PM  
All the best.

Newcastle????
 
2013-03-24 12:01:26 AM
