Acidman is sick...
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 soon, you acidic cracker!!
Damn, that was gona be one helluva funeral too...
glad to hear ya made it, get well soon Acidman.
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
Rob just wanted to chase some nurses again. ;-)
Damn, perforated ulcers are nothing to toy with. Get better, you old fart! We miss you.
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.
Damn! Puts a new light on the handle "Gut Rumbles!"
Rob, you might be a dawg but you're our dawg.
..........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.
Sounds like too much stomach ACID to me. Figures...
Get well soon, dude! I miss you!
and Sam, I really really miss you!
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.
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.
Talk about yer shit blogging...
Get well, feel better and FART.
I am quite glad you're going to survive, Rob! Hehehehe...permission to fart....Godspeed man!
Thank you Sam for the update....
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.
hurry up and fart
well git er done!!
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
Damn, Rob you're taking the title of the blog WAY too seriously!
Get well soon, y'hear!
Hang in there Rob and get well soon. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.
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!!!!
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.
Sending good and healing thoughts your way, Rob. I hope you are feeling better very soon!
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.
Truly sorry to hear of your suffering. Will be praying for a successful, speedy recovery and looking forward to more good writing soon.
AcidMan needs to have an AcidFart - man that's goin' hurt!
Get well soon - can't wait to read about your hospital stay.
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."
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?
Steve - As long as he doesn't do 'Your Cheatin' Fart...'
Rob - hope you are better soon... farts and all.
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!
.. 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....
Well, hell. I'm gonna say a prayer or two for Rob, just to piss him off.
Thanks for the update, Sam.
Me, too, Peter. Whether you approve or not Rob you're in my prayers.
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
Nice to hear about your thirteen year-old. It's great to see a guy saying nice things about his girlfriend.
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!
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.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery! -p-
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.
Get well, Acidman. We need ya!
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.
Thanks, Sam! Stomach ulcerations are no laughing matter, glad it got caught in time. Hope the gas passes medical inspection soon!
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!
The first fart after abdominal surgery will make you wish you hadn't...it will feel like a gator is chewing your insides to shreds. But after that it ain't too bad.
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.
Lord, I can hear the rants now.
Glad you got medical help and hope you get rid of all your hot air.
Get Well Soon AcidMan!!! I am missing you and your daily southern humor.
May all your nurses be barefoot and wearing red toenail polish.
Hope you're well soon Rob.
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)
Best hopes for a speedy recovery. BTW, when you finally pass that fart, the product will be acid gas.
May you reap the wind.
*guffawing loudly at the "May you reap the wind" comment*
For the love of God, somebody pull that man's finger!
Good for you, Sam. Get well, Rob. Obviously many of your readers are already in withdrawals!!
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.
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!
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?
Willy - I sent you an e-mail to the address you have on your website
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.
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!
I hope the best for ya, but you must pay for
Get better soon, Aman, and record those farts for posterior- I mean, posterity. You could do a fart podcast.
Glad the old crapper if going to live. Hate having to search for another home page. Ulcers are a bitch, hang in there gasman.
Gotdam Rob. And here you had us all convinced you were pregnant! So just fart away and get home and well soon.
Get Well Soon. Glad you finally went in to get fixed up.
Prayers and vibes from here, Acidman. Heal that hole and get back to normal. Or abnormal. Whichever you prefer.
Somehow it seems right that Acidman has to fart to get better.
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.
Get well soon!!
I hope you won't be changing your moniker to 'PepcidMan' after this incident.
OH ... DEAR ... G-D!!!
So let me understand this ...you 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.
I am glad no one has to drag him off and shoot him. Best of luck with that flatulence Acidman!
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.
Rob .. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Sam .. Thank you.
Rob, I pray you are much better soon. Meanie, you are an ass! Here, we need you not.
Luck to ya, Rob... hope you're peeling the paint from the walls soon.
Wishing you a quick recovery,
I also just sent you an email at the address on your site.
Hope you feel better soon, my friend.
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.
Damn, man, but you are just snake-bit.
Fart soon, fart long, fart loud. Blow up the nurse's skirts.
Get well Rob. We're thinking of you.
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!
Yep, back in Texas now for good.
Gun Barrel City, Texas, 75156
Get better you ornery critter.
There ain't many of us left.,,,,,,mc
Can't pass gas??!!!??? Let one rip, Rob. Wishing you well soon. g,
Get well soon,. you old fart :)
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.
I was concerned it might mean Rob wouldn't be able to take advantage of this -- until I remembered this.
Please look out for that grouchy ol' dude in Georgia, the one who hates wimmen and non-southerners.
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!.
Damn...I just called him and left a message..I have not been online in a while....
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
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.
Glad to hear that he is on the mend.
Happy to know what's going on with Rob. Sending wishes for a speedy recovery. We'll be here waiting when you've recovered enough to be back with us
Best wishes for a speedy recovery from the Empire State.
I hope you are feeling better!
Hahaha am I the only one who noticed someone changed "meanies" comment?
At least you're not pregnant, pet ;)
Get well soon! *hugs* and also wags and licks from a small dog.
I hope you recover quickly!
Can't fart... so he's a grouchy old fartless?
Get well soon, Rob.
Jess damn! I think you got a record number of comments on this one! So, just one more: hope you feel better.
Hi Samantha, I hadn't been here in awhile, I wondered how Rob was doin, Thanks for updating.
Prayers sent. Treasa
Since there's no word on his homecoming yet does that mean he hasn't farted yet?
Just Damn! (to quote a friend of yours)
I guess I'll join the crowd: I missed you, ya old fool.
