It's Raining Florence Henderson is apparently in the hospital. Does anyone live near him who can go check on him or something?
Seattle area, right? I feel so badly for him - I had the exact same thing.

Oh no! Flo! If you see this, many hugs and kisses to you. (Gentle ones, so as not to hurt your sausage arms.)

With the blod clots and everything, iconomy? (Look for his comment in the comment stream.... scary!)
posted by Doohickie 04 May | 09:42
Ow, ow, ow. Too many pinpricks. Get well, IRFH.

IRFH became a pincushion? That is no fun at all. If you're reading this by any chance, get well soon!

All the best, IRFH, hope your recovery is quick!

Doohickie, I had a weird strain of pneumonia, high fever, clots, the oxygen tent, intensive care, priest called in for last rites...all kinds of fun stuff. I think I was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks but I can't remember any of it, other than the nurses commenting on what a great patient I was.

Hugs and kisses and good vibrations flo-ing your way, irfh...

We love you, Flo; the power of bunnies is with you.

Get well soon IRFH. You've got a certain Wessonality.

Wow iconomy! The only reason I asked, is I missed the comment IRFH wrote and thought it was just a bad cold at first! Glad to see you made it!

Healing vibes coming your way from hippie central in Asheville! If that fails, can I send a microbrew or 12? Get better soon dahlink!! Here's hoping that you immediately at least get better enough to ogle nurses and enjoy the meds.

I would happily go check on IRFH, but when I called Swedish Hospital and asked if they had It's Raining Florence Henderson checked in as a patient, they laughed, told me to quit fucking around, and hung up. :(

Best wishes for speedy recovery, wherever you are.

Good thing cyber-hugs can't pass on anything contagious.

IRFH said (in his blog comments)...
Hey, thanks for all the support! I seem to be getting better slowly but surely. The clots are still pretty painful, but all of the scarey tests are coming up negative, so I should be out of here early next week. Then it's six months or so of blood thinners, and Bob's your uncle. The kidney function seems to be fine, right now I'm mostly just recovering. Thanks for all the love - it helps. Can somebody please cross-post this on the Mecha thread? I can't seem to log in from my phone. Thanks so much!

wendell replied...
From all of me to all of you, IRFH, heartfelt wishes for a full and faster recovery. If I'd known about this yesterday on National Day of Prayer, I'd have thrown in some praying. Personally, you make my alternating eye infections (right one cleared up 2 days before the left one swelled shut) feel so trivial by comparison. When your arms return to the consistency of COOKED sausages, we expect to see you terrorizing MeFi with your great sense of humor more than ever. Remember, we need you.

How did he KNOW?????

Eeek. Take it slow, IRFH. That makes 4 people I've heard of recently who had that crud. Fortunately, posting & playing online isn't terribly physically taxing, hurry back. No Wii for you for awhile!

Poor bunny!

get well, and that is a BUNNY ORDER.

Ooo, please get well soon, IRFH!!! Take it slow!

We can have Alice send over some chicken soup. OTOH, maybe cool lime JELL-O Brand Gelatin tastes better, huh?
posted by rob511 04 May | 21:36
That sucks. But I'm glad to hear that the tests are coming back OK.

Please take it easy and take care of yourself. Me, I'm the type who would chafe at the very notion of being sick, of needing to rest and would bound back into my normal routine and fuck myself up.

Don't be like me. Take it slow. And be well.

Actually, Bob's my brother-in-law, but I'll take what I can get.

Glad to hear from you IRFH. Be good to yourself and get healthy.
