Prayers for Howie: Howie-aid 2012

Update by Howie: 10/29/12 7:32 CDT:

Good morning Jawas!

I'm back! I'm not really sure what to say here so bear with me.

As you all know I've been out for a little longer than I expected. Some screenings had turned up some bad cells. So it became necessary to have a look see. That happens as you get older, there's always some doctor wanting to probe you. Anyway during the probe they found a tumor in my bladder about the size of a half dollar.

That's the bad news, the good news is they removed it. The pathology report is good. They believe they got it all and there is no evidence that it has spread past the lining into the muscle. Also the pathology says that for the most part it was "non aggressive" with only two very small areas showing any sign of a more aggressive and more dangerous cancer.

So the prognosis is good, no radiation or chemotherapy required at this time. I will require a followup surgery in January just to be sure they got everything this time and then yearly probings after that to watch for any recurrence.

I want to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and donations. It really means a lot to know how much you all care. The prayers really helped out as you can see from above.

Also I haven't gotten my part of the bill yet, but special thanks to all who donated. I really hate to ask but it sure will help me out. I wasn't really in a good position to pay for the large bills I'll be getting. So any and all donations are very much appreciated.

Special thanks to Rusty for keeping on me to have the procedure done and also to my heroine and inspiration Stable Hand the Brave. You guys rock.

And also thanks to all the the Docs and nurses and to Mrs. Howie for fixing me up.

I'm feeling pretty good considering, you know, how this surgery is done. Let me just say that surgery done through er your urethra. NOT A GOOD IDEA!

Also if it seems a little unfair that I've come through all this so well, with such a good prognosis not to mention all this love and support. Um yeah, not my doing at all.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Again thanks to you all and its good to be back.

Howie: I have enjoyed your snark comments and videos showing us the true Rusty. It is just awful having to work with such a person.
Aside from that, I will add you to my prayer list. God does move into our lives when we pray, often with healing, often helping Doctors beyond their knowledge, moving as He deems. I will pray that He moves in your life to give you total recovery.
God bless you, and thanks again for all the snark!

13 Damn! Keep up the fight, Howie! If there's anything we can do, get Rusty to post it. I'll keep a candle lit for you. Maybe try and find a boobie-shaped candle just for you. ;)

17 Hi Howie,
I know the shock when you get the news.
I got a Cancer DX awhile back myself.

I'll pray a Rosary for you tomorrow.
No one gets out of here alive. Make sure your ticket is stamped.

God Bless you,

20 Hey Howie. Yeah, you know I hate your guts... but just the cancerous guts. Get better. Good village idiots like you are hard to come by.

I prescribe BOOBIES! Lots and LOTS of boobies.

God bless.

21 Go Howie! You got this!!

Posted by: JarvisW at October 20, 2012 01:57 AM

22 Are you really going to stick with this white on black background for the comments?

Reminds me of every 13 year old computer nerds blog. Or a gaming blog they looooovee to have that kewl black background. It so radical man.

This sucks and it seems to be getting suckier.

Are we to be the guinea pigs for pixy's attempt and a bannable comments?

Get rid of the white on black comments. If this isn't the color that most are seeing then please god code your page for firefox?

23 Sorry to hear that. Hope Howie makes a speedy recovery. In my prayers.

24 "Where's Howie?" is not supposed to make me sad.

Posted by: Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder at October 20, 2012 07:40 AM

25 Hang in there brutha Howie. My family and I will be praying to the Almighty for your healing and encouragement. Just so you know, we need you!

Posted by: Czarkazm at October 20, 2012 09:15 AM

26 Thanks Greyrooster. I was expecting it to be you who would make insensitive remarks, but you showed there is a bit of humanity in the darkest of souls. Thanks again for setting Jcw46 straight. And again I wish the best for Howie and may the force be with him!

Posted by: Notyuyayahoo at October 20, 2012 10:35 AM

27 #25 Gheyrooster, so the boy's father said no and the judge told you "go."

I expect you to hang in there, fight tough and stay with us.

30 Mark shows what a low class piece of filth he is by dishonoring this thread dedicated to Howie's illness. Hope it makes a few people think.

Posted by: Jamika Washington at October 20, 2012 02:05 PM

31 Was it caused by ciggies ?

Posted by: guest at October 20, 2012 04:09 PM

32 Very sorry to hear that. I'm not the praying type, but Howie will be in my thoughts. I'm hoping for the best.

Posted by: Richard at October 20, 2012 05:10 PM

33 Get well soon Howie. You're in my prayers amigo..

Posted by: mrclark at October 20, 2012 05:35 PM

34 Uh thanks, Greyrooster, I think.

And may the Force be with Howie and make a speedy recovery!

35 Sending best wishes to Howie & his family, Best of Luck.

Posted by: raindeer at October 20, 2012 07:09 PM

36 Howie, I hope your doctor said something like this-
'Hey if you have to get cancer, this is the best kind'. At least, that is what my doctor said. That was 7 years ago. Listen to the doctors, they're mostly smart, and positive believing works too. Ask GOD to heal you it it is his will. HE knows what you need before you ask.

Posted by: EROWMER at October 20, 2012 07:18 PM

37 Keep your spirits up Howie! We need a connoisseur of Boobies.

Posted by: Gork at October 20, 2012 07:36 PM

38 How awful! Best to him & his family.

Posted by: The Sanity Inspector at October 20, 2012 08:54 PM

39 I'll pray for you Howie. I'll hit the tip jar soon.

God Bless you for all that you do and have done.

54 Just checking on you Howie! Thinking about you and wishing you boobies err I mean good health!

Posted by: Mean Kitteh at October 22, 2012 05:32 PM

55 Kitteh, it is good to hear your voice! I hope it is as soothing to Howie as it is to me.

Posted by: EROWMER at October 22, 2012 07:22 PM

56 So, I notice Howie hasn't been on the interwebz much. Someone ought to tell him that there is more to the web than surfing for boobies. They probably block those from inside the hospital.

Posted by: Elmira Viking at October 23, 2012 10:16 AM

57 Hey EROWMER! I had to come see Howie is. I hope the thread gets updated soon and I hope Howie knows how much he is cared about just about everywhere. You should come visit us criminals at Twitter!

Posted by: Mean Kitteh at October 23, 2012 01:40 PM

58 Hope you feel better Howie. Prayers for you and your family. Think boobies... mmmm booobies!

Posted by: LittleRed1 at October 29, 2012 04:18 PM

85 In case you don't know, sharmuuto is an Arabic word--which means bitch.

It looks like the zioshits and their puppets--Howie types--are suffering a slow and painful death.

86 Good to have you back, man.
