Hi Everybody,

I got a call and text from our buddy, Brooks. He's been in the hospital since Wednesday and is having surgery this coming Sunday.

He's back in with bowel obstructions - the goal of the surgery is to take out the kink where his ileo was, so that this will not happen again.

I asked him if he wanted me to open up a post for him - and he said yes, please do so. I told him everyone would be worried and would want to know what was up and why he was out of pocket.

His wife is supposed to call me Sunday after the surgery with an update, and I'll pass that along as well. So, let's give him a big SHOUT OUT and get well soon!!!

The boy is on a "dialudid buzz" right about now and feeling good. He got straight enough to talk to me, LOL:)

I "prescribed" him a hit every 10-minutes, LOL:)

Get well, Brooks and get your butt back here, pronto!


Update 11-16-10
Brooks called - he will be in the hospital at least 7-10 days...gotta' get those bowels to wake up, as we all remember. Cleared out alot of scar tissue - says it hurts really bad:(
That's all I know right now.

The only positive about my hospital stay for my total obstruction was the IV drugs...lol!

Please tell his wife to give him a BIG, SLOPPY hug from me!!!

Thanks, Craig, for keeping us updated....I was beginning to miss him!!!

Hugs, Kathi

Thanks so much for letting us know.

Hey Brooks ... keep hitting that button. That's the good stuff that they don't give you to take home so enjoy! Sorry that damn obstruction got the best of you but, thank goodness they are going to take care of it so it won't be a problem anymore. I'm waiting out chemo to get my kinks taken care of because that's when I can have my reversal and didn't want to take the time to take care of one thing when if I wait I can take care of 2 things with one surgery. Hoping it all goes well for you.

Hit that button ... cheers to an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery!

Tell the damn doctors to put in a PVC fitting that will make a nice curve in his pluming. Like one half of a sink P trap. That will keep the kink out.

Us dumb old county boys that live in “fly over country” know how to fix things.

Been wondering where you were these past several days. Gosh, if it is not one thing it is another. Good luck with the surgery and that they get everything straightened out and working.

Thinking of you and the family - Tina

All the best, Brooks, for a speedy recovery.

At my 3rd surgery, I told my dr if he thought he'd be going back in, he'd better put in a zipper. I'm tired of this incision stuff. Maybe that would work for you?

Heal quickly and well,

Sending you good vibes. Having just went through an obstruction again myself, I know how much they suck. Glad they have a plan to fix the problem. And as Craig and the others have said, enjoy the dilauded buzz. It's my drug of choice for pain management when in the hospital. Get well soon and be obstruction free. Also, thanks for the update Craig.

Hey Brooks you aren't supposed to be doing that you know - going to the hospital without our permission :) All kidding aside, I'm sorry that you are having problems again. What a bummer. Hoping that the surgery will correct this and you will feel much better and be back home soon so you can post again. Good luck on the surgery and wishing you a speedy recovery.

Prayers that all is well with Brooks..DH is in hopspital too, with the same problem..hernia right by his ileo. Surgeon will let us know tommorow if they are going to just fix the hernia or fix the hernia and a reversal...I hope it is the latter.

I'm sorry hubby is having problems. Seems that it's pretty common with semicolons. I have a parastomal hernia too that is a real pain and I had just sort of learned to work it and now that I'm having chemo it's become a real problem again. Hope your hubby get to have both his hernia and the reversal. Good luck!
