Off I go

Turn your sound up!


video


What? You thought I listened to Enya while driving my truck home each day?

If you are reading this, (thanks to my offspring) the surgery was moved up due to a scheduling change or a sudden leak and is either done or going on now and is going well. (There was a post drafted if it wasn't going well but that involved a picture of Nancy Pelosi, an ice flo, and starving wolves).

I will be released to the care of friends who I will stay with until I'm less wobbly. Og asked that I bring my eebook to the hospital for some "posts on drugs" but I think I will pass, so I asked a friend to update everyone.


I tried to talk the doc into throwing in some extra lifts and tucks while he was at it but then thought better of it, not wishing to wake up looking like Joan Rivers shar-pei.

Thanks for the prayers, the calls and the notes.


UPDATE: B. did fine. The tumor was removed surgically and sent to the pathologist with what it was attached to. It was pretty large but all by its lonesome. In about 10 days they'll have the cross section and biopsy results. It was not a fibroid but the doctor was optimistic. And Brigid said to tell Audie Murphy that the song is by Tab Benoit but I'm not sure that statement makes sense. - M.

Good luck, Brigid.

And you need some Wayne Toups on your iPod, too. ;)

julie said...

Whoa - surgery? I missed that one. Probably 'cuz I just had surgery :)

I'm sure it'll all be fine, but you'll be in my prayers. May your recovery be super speedy and lacking in complications!

Midwest Chick said...

I was figuring you more for metal.... ;-)

Be safe, we hope it all goes/went well. As always, good thoughts and prayers for you from Mr. B and me.

Turk Turon said...

I hope you're all better real soon!

It was great to see you in Indy last week.

The song says, "...the Gulf of Mexico," but the picture looks more like the snow-blown streets of rural Indiana.

HermitJim said...

I do hope that all continues to go well. You take care...and we'll keep thinking positive thoughts for ya!

B…
I hate to burst you bubble but you simply don’t need any body and fender work done on you because your already beautiful. Now, your mission, if you choose to accept it is to take it easy and heal. When you’re able to get to move and groove again then spend time with Barkley walking in the woods and field’s so you regain your glowing health and luster once again. Please spend time with all of your many friends and share more stories with everyone.

Joanna said...

Best of luck to you, babe. I know you'll come through with flying colors. I'll be praying for you.

Feel free to give me a call any time, no matter what shape you're in. (I speak fluent Painkiller.)

Rev. Paul said...

God bless you, Brigid.

immagikman said...

Glad it went well, I hope they gave you good drugs to take with you as the "Day After" was the real shocker for me when I had surgery.

Look forward to you being on your feet and back to normal....well as normal as you get that is :D

Vic & Dave said...

Here's hoping everything came 'out' ok in the end, Brigid!

May God grant you peace of mind and health in your body as you heal.

Take it easy, eh?

BK said...

Hey, I like Enya! But that wasn't bad either :)

ViolentIndifference said...

That looks like my drive, just not nowhere near as crappy. Thanks for the update!

Recover well. Still in my prayers!

Me said...

Damn! Gal got TASTE in music!

Glad you're ok the hook and out from under the knife.

Now send a copy of that tune, please.

Paul said...

Godspeed!

Larry said...

Glad you are on the mend.
It's spooky how much one part of the Midwest (Iowa) in winter looks so much like all the other parts of the Midwest in winter...
Glad I moved South.

Tango Juliet said...

Best o' luck Brigid!

JDP said...

Am sure everything is going well and you will be fine. Prayers sent your way.

Pity the wolves...

Hang in there beautiful lady! I KNOW everything will turn out fine as who in their right mind would dare to do you harm? WE all love you and are praying for a good outcome.

og said...

Damn, and I got out of a meeting to see I'd missed the call.

Keep us posted!!!

maddmedic said...

Prayers.
Been there with my darling wife.
5+ years now.

George in AZ said...

What everyone else said! Prayers have been/are being send your way.

Cybrludite said...

Best of luck! I'm not the praying type, but you will be in my thoughts.

Differ said...

keeping you in my prayers
I love your blog and I like the driving vid - ...discovered Tab Benoit via Pandora in 2010...like Night Train and others.
Cheers
Chris

Hat Trick said...

B.-Best wishes for a speedy trouble-free recovery. I'll still keep my fingers crossed for a good pathology report.

M.-Thanks for the update. It has eased many minds I'm sure.

Larry-I was going to say that the road in the video could stand in for many in my home area in Central Illinois too.

Stephen said...

Brigid, the music lights me up, the update encourages me, and you are still at the top of my prayer list. I have quite a collection of Acadian, Zydeco, Swamp Boogie type stuff if you need some new "drugs" during your recovery.

Skip said...

Who luvs ya kid?
Og is right, nuthin' like typing while on good painblankers.
Take your time with the new sports model and you know that Guy up there has got your six.

Wiz said...

Breathing, now.

Newbius said...

Give 'em Hell, Miss B. But, be sure and secure the upper levels for your team...

:)

Glen said...

rumspGood to hear that all went well.That isn't a bad driving CD. I kind of wonder how a video would look if you kept time with your right foot.

Argie said...

Tab Benoit makes perfect sense. Guns, Secret Squirrels, Planes and the Blues. What doesn't make sense. Prayers still flowing for you. Get well soon.

Marlowe said...

I've been away for a week, out in the boonies, no internet service. Awful news. I seldom pray, because it's too weird to petition God for favors. But my whole heart says do it, even if it goes unheard in the general clamor for your speedy recovery and positive news that they got it all.

Marlowe
sad as hell

Aanoosh said...

Maybe we should send her one of those Outers .22 bullet traps, and a 22 pistol for target shooting from her hospital bed? If she shoots shorts, it shouldn't disrupt the patient in the next bed.

Get well soon, Brigid.

Also has anyone brought Barkley in for a visit?

Laurie said...

HEAL FAST! There's bullets that need shooting, food that needs cooking, and a dog that needs to go out and get stinky again.

John B said...

No I'm the one who has to listen to Enya while driving. Matt G told me to. Actually concealed carry has made me a much calmer person. Not so much that I'm armed, but I notice all the other calm, mellow, people 'printing' sometimes.

Hope the surgery fixes whats wrong. Hope it's nothing serious.
