Gut Rumbles

March 15, 2006

Acidman is sick...

Hello everyone!

First off I want to say thank you to Lil Toni for mentioning dad's illness in his comments.

I called my great grandmother to see if she had heard from him, which she hadn't so my aunt called the Savannah hospitals until she found him. He couldn't talk but she gave me the number to the hospital so I called and spoke with his nurse.

He has a large hole in his stomach, probably caused from his previous alcoholism. I was worried that he might have gotten hold of some bad food in Coasta Rica but the nurse said it probably wasn't caused by that.

The did have to go in and sew up the hole.

Anyways, he'll be fine but they can't seem to get him to pass gas and until he does, he'll be in a lot of pain BUT he WILL SURVIVE!

I sure hope he doesn't get pissed for me posting this. Oh well, you all are so supportive and he loves his readers so I think you deserve to know what's up.

So take a few seconds and leave him a comment so he'll have something to read when he gets home.


Soooooooo glad you got the message Sam. I've been one e-mailin' FOOL tryin' to find you.

Ulcers are no fun. Perforated ulcers are especially no fun.

We all knew something wasn't right. Rob usually blogs his merry ass away night and day, and he rarely misses posting even if he's out of the country. Most of us figured out that he was sick - check the comments to the previous post, many of which are chock-full of useless advice.

Robbo, I'm glad you saw fit to go to the hospital. We would like to have you around a while longer. Good curmudgeons are thin on the ground these days.

Get Well as quickly as you can! Best wishes from one of the many who rely on a daily dose of the Acidman! Been a loyal and devoted lurker for over 3 years...hope you feel well enough to start writing again soon! Thanks Sam and Lil Toni for the updates

Posted by: swampfox4570 on March 15, 2006 05:50 PM

Rob just wanted to chase some nurses again. ;-)

Damn, perforated ulcers are nothing to toy with. Get better, you old fart! We miss you.

Posted by: Kevin Baker on March 15, 2006 05:51 PM

Pass gas? Is that like FART? A-Man should be able to do that in his sleep. So fart already, Rob, and come on home.

Posted by: Max Doubt on March 15, 2006 05:53 PM

Damn! Puts a new light on the handle "Gut Rumbles!"

Rob, you might be a dawg but you're our dawg.

Get well.
..........if it ain't flies, it's 'skeeters

Thanks for the update Sam. As for you Acidman -- this is what happens when you don't listen to the wimmen. We told you to go to the doctor right away.

Glad you're going to survive yet another bout of mule-headed stubborness and can't wait for the tale of the mother of all farts.

Get well soon. We're missing you.

Posted by: Libby on March 15, 2006 06:00 PM

Sounds like too much stomach ACID to me. Figures...

Get well soon, dude! I miss you!

and Sam, I really really miss you!

Posted by: MrJimm on March 15, 2006 06:22 PM

Long time reader, first time post-er.

You are one tough sonofabitch, this is just a speedbump. Get well soon so you can blog yer ass off again.

I pity the poor fools in the same room with you when you launch that air-biscuit.

Posted by: CZ on March 15, 2006 06:28 PM

Hmmmmm... That sounds kind of fishy. He has to fart to get better? I'll bet he has some fun with that. Just when I got the old .50 cal out and cleaned her up so I could put you out of your misery you start getting better. Hope you get better soon Rob. I'm missing my Acidman fix lately.

Posted by: assrot on March 15, 2006 06:29 PM

Talk about yer shit blogging...

Get well, feel better and FART.

Posted by: Rimfirejones on March 15, 2006 06:32 PM

I am quite glad you're going to survive, Rob! Hehehehe...permission to fart....Godspeed man!
Thank you Sam for the update....

Posted by: Steph on March 15, 2006 06:37 PM

The hole is supposed to go in your head, Rob, not yer gut, ya old fart. I figgered you'd be singin with the angels, but yer still fartin around with us common folk.

Good on ya.

Posted by: Bane on March 15, 2006 06:43 PM

hurry up and fart
well git er done!!

Posted by: rlr on March 15, 2006 07:03 PM

Yeah, what is it about surgery and passing gas...(and until you do you are in an awful lotta pain) After my C section they said I couldnt eat till after I 'passed gas'....and I know I was in an awful lot of pain till I farted......(and the constant influx of visitors made farting somewhat difficult) Hopefully Rob will let it rip and will be on the road to recovery.....SOON.

Chin up, ACIDMAN

Posted by: Ruth on March 15, 2006 07:04 PM

Damn, Rob you're taking the title of the blog WAY too seriously!
Get well soon, y'hear!

Posted by: BlogDog on March 15, 2006 07:18 PM

((gentle hugs))

Posted by: DogsDontPurr on March 15, 2006 07:22 PM

Hang in there Rob and get well soon. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Posted by: Moogie on March 15, 2006 07:33 PM

Well, hell's bells...
Somebody feed 'im some Mickey D's shit or venison.

That stuff makes men I know fart to kill the band, let alone beat it.

Glad he's gonna be okay.
Just wish he'd have gone sooner....

Love you, Rob!!!!

Posted by: Stevie on March 15, 2006 07:45 PM

Rob, your one of the first blogs I started reading and still the first I go to each day. Hurry up and get well. Day by day the kudzu will get thinner.

Posted by: K. D. Zu on March 15, 2006 07:48 PM

Sending good and healing thoughts your way, Rob. I hope you are feeling better very soon!

Posted by: Richmond on March 15, 2006 07:57 PM

All the best from Down Under, Rob.
"Gut Rumbles" indeed!

I have to agree with Elisson, grumpy ol' farts are too thin on the ground in these PC times.

Hurry up and get well.

Posted by: Henry Blowfly on March 15, 2006 07:59 PM

Truly sorry to hear of your suffering. Will be praying for a successful, speedy recovery and looking forward to more good writing soon.

Posted by: Tessa on March 15, 2006 08:00 PM

AcidMan needs to have an AcidFart - man that's goin' hurt!

Get well soon - can't wait to read about your hospital stay.

Posted by: Mark on March 15, 2006 08:03 PM

Come on over to my blog for the Acidman Fart Pool. I have 9:35 Eastern.

I'd like to suggest he light the fart and shoot a video for posterity.

And perhaps when he really gets going, he could fart a few requests. Like "Fartbreak Hotel" or "Deep in the Fart of Texas."

Posted by: Steve H. on March 15, 2006 08:07 PM

Sam: Thanks for letting us know. Appreciate your courtesy to a pack of strangers.

Rob: You work things out and hustle on home now. Y'hear?

All: Ok, who has the cat fart jokes?

Posted by: homebru on March 15, 2006 08:14 PM

Steve - As long as he doesn't do 'Your Cheatin' Fart...'

Rob - hope you are better soon... farts and all.

Posted by: Kathy K on March 15, 2006 08:15 PM

Thanks, Sam (good to see you pop up, kiddo -- hope things are well with you as well) & Li' Toni -- good work, girls!! -- Rob, hope you're feeling much better soon -- thinking good (and gassy!) thoughts for you. Looking forward to seeing you back to 'normal'. One minute at a time for the time being!

Posted by: Marianne on March 15, 2006 08:30 PM

.. heh heh... "Your Cheatin' Fart"... that is just whacked....

... get well soon, Robbie.... best of luck, man.... if you need me to come and pull your finger, just holler... I'm only just across the mountain....

Posted by: Eric on March 15, 2006 08:42 PM

Well, hell. I'm gonna say a prayer or two for Rob, just to piss him off.
Thanks for the update, Sam.

Posted by: Peter on March 15, 2006 08:43 PM

Me, too, Peter. Whether you approve or not Rob you're in my prayers.

Posted by: NancyB on March 15, 2006 08:47 PM

Glad to hear that you are ok Cid man!!
Thank you Sam and Lil Tony for the update. Been a loyal reader for around 3 years now and it's weird not having a fresh post from you in a few days. Take care dude and get with eating the beans, cabbage and all that good shit to give you the gas

Posted by: Jason H on March 15, 2006 08:48 PM

Nice to hear about your thirteen year-old. It's great to see a guy saying nice things about his girlfriend.

Posted by: Steve H. on March 15, 2006 09:12 PM

Dude... I will send you some of my Chili. if that doesn't blow a puff of air out your ass ain't nothing gonna do it!

Loyal Lurker...

Posted by: John V on March 15, 2006 09:27 PM

Rob, I'm so glad Sam was able to find you please don't be angry with her for letting us know you are ok. Please take care of yourself. Hopefully you can now get back to being Rob.

Posted by: Trish on March 15, 2006 09:34 PM

Best wishes for a speedy recovery! -p-

Posted by: Pam on March 15, 2006 09:52 PM

Get well soon Rob, break wind with pride (you never struck me as one to do something half assed), give the prettiest nurse(s) your phone number, and hope to see you back hale and hearty at the helm in the crackerbox.

And Sam you did right by your dad. Doubt he could or would ever ask for a better daughter, or be upset with what you have done.

Posted by: Guy S on March 15, 2006 09:55 PM

Get well, Acidman. We need ya!

Posted by: Jeffro on March 15, 2006 10:01 PM

When I had clinicals in the Peds ICU, one of the doctors used a cath in the rectum to help expel gas. First time I ever saw that, but it may be helpful in this case, too.

Posted by: Renee on March 15, 2006 10:09 PM

thinking of you rob

Posted by: hoosierboy on March 15, 2006 10:17 PM

Thanks, Sam! Stomach ulcerations are no laughing matter, glad it got caught in time. Hope the gas passes medical inspection soon!

Posted by: Stu on March 15, 2006 10:26 PM

Thanks for letting us know! Take care of yourself OLD MAN! Where would I get my daily dose of sarcasm and wit if you weren't here to blog daily?

All the best!

Posted by: wendi on March 15, 2006 10:41 PM

The first fart after abdominal surgery will make you wish you hadn' will feel like a gator is chewing your insides to shreds. But after that it ain't too bad.

Posted by: DixieDarlin' on March 15, 2006 10:58 PM

After I had my appendix out, the first fart-which they WERE interested to hear about- didn't hurt at all. In fact, it eased things considerably.

Damn, Rob, you need to get over this. If you kick off, who'll give Willis the vapors? Who will we look to for words that piss off all the right people? Who will we-

Oh, hell with it. Just get better, boy.

Posted by: Mark on March 15, 2006 11:27 PM

Lord, I can hear the rants now.

Glad you got medical help and hope you get rid of all your hot air.

Posted by: Cheryl on March 15, 2006 11:46 PM

Get Well Soon AcidMan!!! I am missing you and your daily southern humor.

May all your nurses be barefoot and wearing red toenail polish.

Hurray back.

Posted by: judi on March 16, 2006 12:08 AM

Hope you're well soon Rob.

Posted by: Shawn on March 16, 2006 12:13 AM

On Rob's behalf, I'm getting my gun and getting in my car and coming up to where ever the hell "Meanie" lives and blowing him (Meanie) a new asshole that goes straight through from his head to his chair.

Then maybe Rob can issue that first fart in Meanie's face and it will end up where it belongs.

(and my the way...Steve H...I've got my money on 4:15 AM)

Posted by: Virgil on March 16, 2006 12:27 AM

Best hopes for a speedy recovery. BTW, when you finally pass that fart, the product will be acid gas.

May you reap the wind.

Posted by: West on March 16, 2006 12:29 AM

Fart dammit!

*guffawing loudly at the "May you reap the wind" comment*

Posted by: PattiG on March 16, 2006 12:36 AM

For the love of God, somebody pull that man's finger!

Posted by: Justin Buist on March 16, 2006 12:46 AM

Good for you, Sam. Get well, Rob. Obviously many of your readers are already in withdrawals!!

Posted by: Indigo on March 16, 2006 01:04 AM

Please send me an e-mail so that we can communicate without everybody in the world viewing our comments. I do not have your e-mail address and there are things I think you should know.

Thanks, Willy

Posted by: Willy on March 16, 2006 01:28 AM

Beans, Beans, Theyíre good for your Heart
The more you eat, The more you fart
The more you fart, The better you feel
So letís have beans for every meal!

Posted by: benfish on March 16, 2006 01:35 AM

Hahaha! "Gut Rumbles"... that's JUST too sadly funny. I hope you get better, and I thank ALL your friends and loved ones (one and same?) for being a great support system for you. Wouldn't the world BE a better place if we all believed in "all for one and one for all" ? Damn...on second thought, we'd all STILL be wearing the same shirts. My heart is in the right place, though. Anyhoo, get better, eh?

Posted by: MaryAnn on March 16, 2006 03:08 AM

Willy - I sent you an e-mail to the address you have on your website

Posted by: Sam on March 16, 2006 03:50 AM

Glad to hear from you Sam. Wish it was in better times though.
Tell your dad I'm gonna look for a card for him. Now all I have to do is see if Hallmark makes a "Happy Farters Day" card.
Wish him well from all of us.

Posted by: Wichi Dude on March 16, 2006 03:52 AM

I'm sure the anticipated fart will be one hell of a celebration! *and all of you who thought Rob was just an old gas bag should be ashamed of yourselves!* Get better soon, Rob, we are having wtihdrawls!

Posted by: Michele on March 16, 2006 04:50 AM

I hope the best for ya, but you must pay for

past sins.

Posted by: TomCat on March 16, 2006 06:31 AM

Get better soon, Aman, and record those farts for posterior- I mean, posterity. You could do a fart podcast.

Posted by: og on March 16, 2006 07:11 AM

Glad the old crapper if going to live. Hate having to search for another home page. Ulcers are a bitch, hang in there gasman.

Posted by: jamesoldguy on March 16, 2006 07:16 AM

Gotdam Rob. And here you had us all convinced you were pregnant! So just fart away and get home and well soon.

Posted by: GUYK on March 16, 2006 07:51 AM

Get Well Soon. Glad you finally went in to get fixed up.

Posted by: dustbunny101 on March 16, 2006 08:02 AM

Prayers and vibes from here, Acidman. Heal that hole and get back to normal. Or abnormal. Whichever you prefer.

Posted by: Kim on March 16, 2006 08:03 AM

Somehow it seems right that Acidman has to fart to get better.

Posted by: Deliverance on March 16, 2006 08:07 AM

Feel better soon, Acidman! Well, if there's anything, just think of all the crapblogging material you'll have now. Helluva way to get it, though.
Get yer butt on home soon.

Posted by: Mo on March 16, 2006 08:11 AM

Get well soon!!

I hope you won't be changing your moniker to 'PepcidMan' after this incident.

Posted by: Ice Scribe on March 16, 2006 08:18 AM

OH ... DEAR ... G-D!!!
So let me understand this have to fart ... and can't? Wow, you'd be the perfect roommate!
Seriously though, fart dammit! Fart! I don't care how you fart ... just so long as it ain't an Achey Breaky Fart.
iRefuah sh'laimeh -- a complete recovery.

Posted by: erica on March 16, 2006 08:19 AM

I am glad no one has to drag him off and shoot him. Best of luck with that flatulence Acidman!

Posted by: Florida Bill on March 16, 2006 08:21 AM

I'm so sorry to hear that he's so sick, but very glad to hear he's going to make it!

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Rob. Praying for a speedy and complete recovery.

Don't stop around here much but just wanted to let you know that what affects one blogger affects us all. I know your not much for prayer but I am so your getting them whether you want them or not.

Posted by: Dave on March 16, 2006 11:25 AM

Damn, man, but you are just snake-bit.

Fart soon, fart long, fart loud. Blow up the nurse's skirts.

Posted by: refugee on March 16, 2006 11:36 AM

Get well Rob. We're thinking of you.

Posted by: peggy on March 16, 2006 11:43 AM

Guess I have to read your blog everyday, since I did not know you were sick.

Got some good news for you though. I moved from mexico back into "God's Country!

The hole in your stomach causes a hole in my heart! I can't wait until you are well again. I love reading your blog. With my "whole" admiration.

Posted by: Sheri on March 16, 2006 12:23 PM

I was concerned it might mean Rob wouldn't be able to take advantage of this -- until I remembered this.

Posted by: McGehee on March 16, 2006 12:27 PM

Dear God:

Please look out for that grouchy ol' dude in Georgia, the one who hates wimmen and non-southerners.


Posted by: Jane on March 16, 2006 12:44 PM

Whaaa? Acidman can't fart. Sweet lord say it ain't so. Theres no (at best few) greater pleasures in life than the sweet sound of the sphincterphone orchestrated by a maestro causing brave men to run and dogs hide like wimpering sheep

Get well soon ya hear!.

Posted by: John on March 16, 2006 01:19 PM

Damn...I just called him and left a message..I have not been online in a while....

Posted by: Kellie Harmon on March 16, 2006 01:29 PM

I saw Rob today, he is better. They cut a ulcer out of him on monday, it busted. tubes were taken out this morning. I posted a report on Robbie at my site, Cat

Posted by: Catfish on March 16, 2006 03:16 PM

Oh man, we were worried. Thank God you're going to be OK. You need this like a hole in your head - or a cat in your bed. Thank Allah too.

Posted by: Phil on March 16, 2006 04:17 PM

Glad to hear that he is on the mend.

Prayers sent. Treasa

Posted by: Treasa on March 18, 2006 06:23 AM

Since there's no word on his homecoming yet does that mean he hasn't farted yet?

Posted by: livey on March 18, 2006 01:30 PM

Just Damn! (to quote a friend of yours)
I guess I'll join the crowd: I missed you, ya old fool.
