    Default Btown is in the hospital. Please send your prayers (and sheep)

    Btowncolt is suffering from a serious infection. He is upbeat and his doctors are optimistic of his recovery, but this kind of thing van turn serious.

    Any help, prayers, well wishes and good vibes will be most appreciated by his friends and family.

    Thanks.

    Get well Btown!

    I tried to sneak some sheep in the free candy van, but security would have no part of it.

    Remember, drifters + Lysol spray = good idea.

    I mean, you don't know where they've been...kind of by definition.

    Thanks all. No real reports of progress yet. I do finally feel and look a little better this morning. Waiting for a doctor to tell me I might finally be improving and to look at my CT scan to make sure the infection hasn't gotten to my brain.

    The best news in all of this is that it's snowed the whole time I've been here, so I could t have driven the van around anyway. And hey, it might have required almost dying, but I could afford to stay on NYC's Upper East Side for at least a few nights this way!

    Thanks again everyone. Appreciate those in this thread who were supporting me.

    I made it home just a few minutes ago. Nowhere near out of the woods, but I'm at the point where the doctors think that oral antibiotics should be enough. Have to constantly monitor however, as any sign that I'm not making progress means immediate rehospitilization. Hoping to avoid that.

    Again, thank you - good to see solid folks offering support at a time when I really needed it.

    Glad to hear you're on the road to recovery.

    Let me know if you need anyone to read you a book while you're sick. I have a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick. It's got fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

    I've got more information from btown.

    Listen folks, he really needs your prayers. He is on the last ditch medications. His condition is very rare and sometimes fatal and he has not yet recovered. Jokes are good, and certainly help in healing. But he ALSO needs your well-wishes and prayers. Let's send him our very best.

    Hopefully those meds do their job and btown can get himself up and going again soon.

    Hope things are going better.

    I had a bad infection a few years ago and was on IV antibiotics for several months at home. I was on a "last chance" drug Vancomycin, thankfully I'm still here.

    Best of luck!

    Last I heard the meganuke antibiotics were making good progress on the infection. I hope he's still doing OK.

    Hoop, how'd you get infected? That sounds pretty serious - glad you're OK!

    He's definitely in my thoughts. I'd pray for him if I was a religous man.....But since I'm not , I'll joke instead as he would have it....

    Btown, I've broke into your basement and brought a couple drifters with me. Check the webcam, I'm going to use your "special tool" you usually save for me.....Just for your enjoyment.

    Get well, bro. I had my own bout with a serious infection about 7 years ago and it was not fun. Tons of iv infusions and intermittant hospital stays. Hang in there and keep us posted.
