Good morning!

Update- Maddog 10 AM Thursday

He is in the hospital and had been admitted as planned.

Sounds good, but sleepy. Still has a good sense of humor.

Was put on two meds. Itchy from meds, so had a shot of Benadryl.

Headed shortly for colonoscopy.

I asked if anyone had been there yet and he said no, and its better they didn't as he spent a lot of time in the bathroom prepping for the procedures today.

Of course, if you know Maddog, that wasn't exactly his words, but you get the idea.

He hasn't gotten his laptop set up yet, so he isn't getting any emails right now.

My guess is he will check this post once he has the ability to do so?

He doesn't know how long he will be there- they haven't told him.

If I hear more I will update as soon as possible.

Prayers always welcome.

Get well soon Maddog!

And please don't bite any nurses!

[Big Grin]

PS Maddog- It was MULLET! Will try to post the video below.

Thankfully I found it on youtube.

The first 45 seconds or so wasn't in the copy I saw on FB, so wait till you get into it a bit to see the mullet.

Hope you enjoy it!

Hey TIN.....Thanks for the update, hope all is well!

I had to go to the hospital for a gastroscopy today.

There were three other guys in the waiting room.

The doctor came through and explained what has happening to the four of us.

He said that I was having the gastroscopy, which is the camera down the throat and the other three were there for a colonoscopy, which is the camera up the butt. He then asked if any of us had any questions.

I said: "Yes. Can I go first?"

Good luck Maddog,

Quick update...

Maddog is done with test and it appears he won't require surgery.

YEA!!!!

Doc will be seeing him in the morning and he will know more.

Not sure when he will be released as he is on IV's, but as soon as he can get access I am sure he will come by here and share more, and will appreciate all the notes! (I've enjoyed reading them too!)

Love how you all are supporting him! You're the best! Thanks for that!

Feel better soon Maddog!

Update- 10 AM Friday

Maddog is feeling worse than yesterday, wondering if a herx isn't hitting him along with the belly problems. ??

Also a lack of sleep isn't helping.

Was due to possibly get out tomorrow, but he may not- still up in the air.

He told me this morning he can see your posts, but without his LN password he can't get on to respond.

But, he wanted me to thank you for everything and all the well wishes!

Always loved your pictures Steve! Sure Maddog will too! Thanks!

UPDATE- Maddog was due to be released today, but his back was hurting and he felt it might be a pinched nerve or from a herx.

He is still in the hospital.

Please wish him well!

UPDATE- Maddog is heading home today- should be about now- with 8-10 inches of snow on the ground, but he is headed home!

Will let him catch you up on his "adventure".

Great news. Hope someone cleared his drive for him.

Not sure where I would be without my kind neighbor who cleared the 10 inches off my drive.

10-4 Lone Wolf!

And no Hiker, no such luck.

He had to dig himself a way in thru the snow. Now he is paying (physically) for that work.

Hope he will be here soon to respond.
