you'll never guess who had colic surgery

seriously. you'll never guess.









me.

go figure.

i'm typing this this live from presbyterian hospital.

stop worrying. i haven't lost my sense of humor. that would be my right hand on the pain button and a one-finger salute with my left. you can tell how much i enjoy being here.

woke up wednesday around 2 a.m. with a stomach ache. blamed it on my cooking. by noon wednesday, i gave in and had a coworker drive out to the ranch to pick me up and drive me to urgent care in belen. they decided i needed to take the fast route to albuquerque with flashing lights. then the cute er doc said he was calling the surgeon. then the surgeon removed a large chunk of my necrotic small intestine. same damned thing that emmy lou (lyle's mom) died from. my prognosis is much better.

My sister has now taken over the typing, so maybe the punctuation will be correct. I called her in Florida as I was being wheeled into the OR, and she arrived sometime, (Carson can't keep her days strait. Kathleen says it was 1:30 Wednesday afternoon, and that she knows it should be "straight.")

Bottom line. All of my friends have rallied and are taking the best care of me  of my animals. Let's keep  our priorities strait. My sister is coordinating ranch sitters and I'm sure everything is under control.

Stop worrying.  I mean it.  Stop worrying.

I don't know if I've got blog coverage lined up. But I will try to post updates occasionally.

Because I know you won't stop worrying. Even though I have told you to stop.

That's all for today. Thank you for your concern.

p.s. The doctors are very handsome.

  3. I knew something was going on! I won't tell you not to worry, because I know you will, but the critters will be fine! So glad your are going to be okay and that your sister is there. I was afraid Lucy had you pinned in the feedroom until you removed her grazing muzzle! Prayers for a quick recovery!! Your stay shouldn't be too awful since you have eye candy. :o)

  4. I'm not worrying, I'm not, really I'm not...
    I'm glad you are well cared for and I know you have the animals covered. Enjoy the docs! :)

    I was wondering if you were sick with no blogs for two days. Thankfully you are on the road to recovery. Hugs to you. Take it easy when you get home too.

  9. Good lord!! I began to wonder what happened when I checked the blog numerous times yesterday and nothing new. Nada, zip, zilch. I had to calm myself down because there wasn't a new Alan/Lucy/JohnnyCashCat/etc update!! Get well soon and I'd also be waving the one finger salute if I was in your shoes, I dislike hospitals also.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, my! This is the last thing I expected! Wishing you are very speedy recovery!

  11. I was wondering why you were silent. I am happy you are in good + good-looking hands, enjoy your luck!
    and I keep my fingers crossed for you and wish for an excellent recovery process. good to have a handy sister!

  12. Whew - I was worried. Knew something was up. Glad you're ok and your sense of humor is intact. If I was closer (I'm in Virginia), I'd be there in a heartbeat to help out. I must say, the i.v. pole attachments are most impressive.......between the 'good' drugs and the good looking doctors, you'll be fit as a fiddle in no time!
    Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Do promise to get better soon!
    Now you noticing how handsome the doctors are is of course a sign in itself that you're OK. Ish. Work on it, will you? We miss you!!!!

  17. Damn, Carson. Just....damn.
    (Really glad you're on the mend.)
    Loved the picture.
    Loved your P.S. (reminds me of our trips to Hank's vet) :-)
    Got my finger on Southwest ticket purchase button - just say when.

  19. I guess we all knew something was wrong cuz you were caught up on Breaking Bad and hadn't mentioned taking another vacation. Get well soon Carson. I'm so happy you have a great support team with you.

  20. Linda, I had a hunch something was wrong and so glad you got to the hospital...take care of yourself and we all are pulling for you to get well soon and back to entertaining us every day :) Lots of good vibes coming your way ;) Jeanne in SC

  22. whoa!

    you got lot's of bags hanging from your trolley..IV drip-drops

    you will be up and running in no time..feeling 100%

    as long as you got pain meds and you can eyeball a few of the dr. mcdreamie's running round you're good.


    a speedy recovery is in order...

    ReplyDelete
  23. No, I won't stop worrying till you are home and back on your feet....

    I'm so glad you have a wonderful sister and good friends to help out..

    Be well, Carson dear !!

  24. Just said to the friend I am visiting in SLC this morning that I was worried about you because you hadn't blogged since the 28th. And here you are asking us not to worry. Hope you are feeling back up to snuff really soon and that all your critters will get you back in their routine without much delay.

    ReplyDelete
  25. so glad you're OK - I was getting worried. I love that you share your life and lovely herd with all of us.

    Feel better soon!

  26. Good to see you still have a sense of humor and that the critters have care takers.

  27. When I noticed the blog hadn't been updated, I started to wonder/worry. Wishing you a speedy recovery, and try to think of it as spending time at the spa, only with needles & beeping machines & tubes in rude places ... well, at least there's hawt docs. ;p

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am so so sorry. I hope you recover fast. Who's going to help you with your gang til you can do it on your own ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I wondered if something wasn't amiss when you didn't post blog comments a couple of days ago. I am so glad to hear you are on the mend. Enjoy taking some time off and concentrate on healing. Let somebody else do the cooking for a while. ;)

    Can't keep a good rancher down for long, so I'm sure you'll be better soon. I'm a new fan of yours (googled 'donkey' because I love them) and I am spending waaay too much time trying to catch up from day 1 of your blog. I admire your tenacity. I'm thinking you MIGHT be getting close to my age, 62,and that makes me even more gobsmacked about what you are all about. I would like to see pictures of your home, are they in a blog somewhere? I live in the Kickapoo Valley in WI, another beautiful place to be. Except - I live in town, even if it's only 1300 people, so I get my 'country fix' through you. Thanks. Now go get better. Dianne D.

  31. Ouch. Knew something was up when you didn't post 2 weekdays in a row with no warning. So, yeah, we were worrying. Best wishes for a smooth and complete recovery. Tend to your own care; it's the fastest way to get back to those beloved animals.

  33. So now that everyone and everything is covered, don't go rushing out of there too soon- enjoy the cute docs and get well! Sending you big hugs - thanks for the update - we would indeed have been worrying about you!

  35. well, i am worrying about you and all those sweeties that depend on you. i know your sister will handle it for you.. so sorry to hear this, i will pray for a quick recovery. and will be waiting for more details when you feel better. hugs from florida.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was about to send the Morning Bray crew over to check on you and the herd!
    Glad to hear you're well taken care of, eye candy is good for recovery. Take care of yourself, and let the rest of us take care of the farm (I say from 2000 miles away). And the worrying. No matter what you say.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Carson -
    This seems like an extreme way to get out of seeing us when we are in NM! Seriously, I hope you feel better really really fast, and get back to your critters quickly. I'll be in touch!

  38. We were already worrying and will try not to keep on worrying. The good news is that there are so many of us trying not to worry and doing whatever amounts to prayer in our various ways, that you are being loved and cared for beyond all norms, and that damned well better help.

  40. You deserve flashing lights, but not that kind...hope you feel better soon.

  41. Oh no! Best wishes for a speedy recovery. But if the humor is intact...all will be well. Glad the critters are covered.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Linda, This is an awesome way to get your "lurkers" to chime in. Wow...you really know how to visit the doctors! Feel better soon...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Fambly is a wonderful thing. Especially when said fambly members know how to spell. So the blog posts should be covered. And the animals are covered although I imagine Miss Lucy will convince the staff to leave off the dreaded grazing muzzle. Sniggering the entire time.

    Feel better soon, take whatever pain meds they give you because the body heals much quicker when it doesn't have to fight the pain as well as trying to heal at the same time. Per a surgeon after my husband's emergency gallbladder surgery. Who I called Dooger Houser--the surgeon, not the husband. Gah, off track!

    Will await your next adventure. Bated breath and all.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Here's to a fast recovery, Linda. I know this hasn't been any fun for you. (Aren't you happy for that right hand button?) Glad you got to the doctor Wednesday and that they quickly diagnosed and got you into surgery. Even though you're 7 miles south of nowhere, you made it, girl. Now get home soon (but no more of those crazy chores for a while, that's what friends and family are for.

    ReplyDelete
  45. So good to see you.... Ok, I will stop worrying now :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Not worrying here either. mild concern, but no worrying per your instructions! love the iv pole...don't think there's anything you're not getting! good sign. and yes, cute doctors correlate to excellent care. so, you rest and keep pushing your pain med and you'll be dancing in no time. hi to sissy and your critters will get the best of care. you deserve it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Aye, not worrying anymore: Now we know you're not out there somewhere in a rotten situation, alone and without a cell phone... (We KNEW something had to be very wrong with YOU this time!) Once you've recovered, you'll need to devise less painful and scary means of meeting handsome docs, though, please. Feel lots better and get well soon!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I knew something was up when you had not posted. I am glad you will be okay, just enjoy the handsome doctors. Just have you ranch sitters post pictures of the animals and make sure to keep us updated on yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  49. NOW I'm worried!!! OK - you're fine - you're in good (handsome) hands - I'll stop worrying. Sort of. God bless your sister - and everyone who is pitching in to take care of all the kids. Has Smooch tried to sneak into the hospital to visit you yet?

    Love and hugs,
    Nancy in Iowa

  50. Phew! Glad you are sort of back...and hope recovery will be speedy...

    ReplyDelete
  51. P.S. And bless those cute docs who understood the urgency...

    ReplyDelete
  52. So glad to hear you are under good (and good looking)care. Because we WERE worried.

    ReplyDelete
  53. oh my gosh. that is scary. Hope you feel better soon and of course, everybody who reads your blog will worry. That's just because we all like you even when we haven't met you.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Good Lord woman! You have been around those animals way too long if you have an equine ailment!!! Are you sure you didn't pick up "something" in Cozumel? The things some people will do just to lay about =o) FEEL BETTER!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I thought you may have gone back to the water vacation and decided not to tell anyone...Then again, the herd would have blown your cover...LOL
    Hope you feel well very soon...or not if those docs are handsome...
    Love from NC

  56. Carson, I feel like a dear friend is hurting and ill but there is nothing I can do...no casseroles to make or plants to water...such is the nature of internet relationships. Please know everyone that reads your blog everyday is thinking about you and wishing a speedy recovery! Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  57. I won't worry but get well soon! All my thoughts on you

    ReplyDelete
  58. One more thing-- if you need economic help to get through this, please let your readers know. Those of us at a distance will want to help

  59. Yikes! Sending good thoughts for a quick and smooth recovery!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ooh poor you! Sending get well wishes and thanks for letting us know. That's dedicated blogging! But you're right we were all worried.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Absolutely love the pic! A woman at church has a chronic disease and is hospitalized about once a year. We always know she's on the mend when she gets her smart-aleck self back.
    Glad you've got friends/family rallying around!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Cute is good and easy on the eyes. Get well soon and so glad you were able to get help as soon as you did as you had a long way to travel.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I knew there was something afoot! I was expecting an animal crisis, and oh my goodness, it was you!

    I'm glad that you've got friends and family, and cute doctors on your team!

    Seriously? You're in the hospital, and worrying about blog coverage? Silly lady! Take care of yourself, we'll be here for you when you get back.

  64. Hope you're on you feet again soon!

    We had laugh at my mother's expense - she had to have a couple of surgeries right in a row for her hip. She was swooning over the "nice looking Irish doctor.". We told her that she had that second surgery just "so he could get his hands all inside her.". grin

    Get better soon!

  68. Good thoughts for you! Hope you have not to stay in the hospital for long and can be with your animals soon. Thats what you need for recovery I think.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm so glad to hear that you are alive! I was about to start pinging Morning Bray Farm and any other folks I know that have visited you. I'm sure I wasn't the only long time reader hatching plans.

    Please know that you have lots of admirers and followers wishing you a quick and easy recovery.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I am not worried either, I was worried when you didn't post and I looked up and down at all the blogs wondering where you were. Now I know.

    Get well fast and you know your friends will be around you taking care of things.

    Cheers,

  74. Man,what the hell is going on in this universe?! All three of my favorite bloggers are dealing with health issues and I'm having the first surgery of my life Wed.! Let's all get well soon together! I don't say it often but love your blog,your animals and you. Get well and listen to the docs.Not easy I know.Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Wah! Trying not to worry...
    I guess if the docs are cute and you can still flip off the camera, things aren't beyond hope. Be better soon. Your critters miss you and so do your readers. xojudi

  76. Told hubby this morning I was ready for a ride to New Mexico. Like all the rest, I knew something was wrong.

    Thought maybe you had discovered "Longmire" on A&E TV and had started watching all of the episodes from two years. It will help you get over "Breaking Bad". Or, read some of Craig Johnson's novels.

    Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville has some of those same cute ER docs too! Don't you stick that finger up at them, just us. *LOL*

    Get well quick!

    ReplyDelete
  77. That's a hell of a way to get a vacation from poop clean up detail!! Get well soon!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Okay, I did not expect this! (You either, I'm betting...) I was concerned until I read the last line, then I knew you would be okay. *grin*

    Seriously, though, I don't like the word necrotic used anywhere in a sentence involving body parts - yours or anyone else's. I know you're in good hands and so are your herd.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!

    ReplyDelete
  79. P.S.

    Only YOU would be blogging from your hospital bed. *head shaking*

    ReplyDelete
  80. Well, Carson, what can I say? Here's to wishing you a speedy recovery~!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Get well wishes are sent your way. I can tell that your pain is adequately controlled by the number of mentions of handsome docs. LOL Hugs to you and your sister and everyone who is helping out.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Maybe you can convince one of those cute docs to pay a house call to check up on you.

    ReplyDelete
  83. You busted a gut digging that hole, didn't you! See, that's why I don't do that stuff.

    Good to know you're being taken care of, and that you have the strength and coordination to manipulate your digits so handily.

    Get well soon!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yikes! Glad everyone concerned moved fast and they had you into surgery so promptly! I hope your recovery is a fast one and you are back with your furry friends very soon. xxx

  85. Take care of yourself! And take it easy. Here's an offer...we won't worry about you if you don't worry about blog coverage

  86. Holy crap! It's gotta be the full moon/ solar flare nutso thing going on! I'd also blame this on chewing on your fingernails or gnawing on a pencil but nope good old fashioned colic! Did they pump you full of mineral oil??? Love the finger salute.... so here's some friendly advice; take your meds, push the button and slap some cute Dr.s hiney when you can and blame the morphinr pump! P. S. The food in the hospitals have greatly improved since your last visit :@)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Whew, that is quite the IV pole, looks like they are giving you just about everything. Which is probably why the doctors look so handsome:) I hope you heal up fast and feel better. And hey, at least it wasn't one of the equines right?

    ReplyDelete
  88. Love the picture! Hope you feel better soon so you can get the heck out of there. Even if the doctors are handsome, hospitals are nowhere near as fun as being home on the ranch.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Whoa, that's scary! Hope you're back on your feet soon... I'm sure your animals will start up a list of chores for you to do when you get home. :D Recently lost a very dear horse to colic, so I kind of braced myself when I clicked on the link from Facebook, but I'm glad this story had a much better ending.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Poor thing! I do hope you feel better soon. Rest and recover and take things easy.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Too soon for fiber jokes? ;D

    Take care Carson!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Glad you are on the mend. I look the boys and girls first thing in the am to get a smile. I was afraid there was something wrong. At least you have cute docs to look at while you recover...
    Take care,

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh Carson! Do get well soon, enjoy looking at the cute doctors and the pain meds. Hope you get to make bail and come home soon. Oh and Kathleen-thanks for taking care of her. In case you didn't realize it before, there are an awful lot of people who have never met your sister but consider her a good friend.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh my gosh, colic surgery is tough! Thank goodness you went to the hospital and didn't try to handle it yourself with one of your DIY projects! Get better...soon! And make sure you do exactly what those handsome doctors tell you to do.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I was worried!! I still am but I love seeing that you still have a sense of humor!! Get well soon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Ouch... sounds awful. How does one get a case of necrotic small intestine?!
    I hope each day brings more energy and less pain.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I am worrying less now that I was when there was no blog for two days. Here's to a speedy recovery. I'm sure the animals will have some stories to tell when you return. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm so glad you will be okay!!! Handsome doctors are very helpful!
    Take care of yourself. Everyone will be here.:P

  99. You poor thing. Sending prayers and positive light your way. Glad you are on the mend and I hope you are out of the hospital and back on your feet again with your herd very soon. XO

    ReplyDelete
  100. Sounds like diverticulitis, my husband is susceptible to it ad it's very painful- he just had another go round with it a couple weeks ago and fortunately didn't need surgery. So I know how much pain you have been in, and I'm glad you made it to the hospital and the cute doctors and the pain meds. Hope you recover rapidly, I'm sure your critters miss you!

    ReplyDelete
  101. You must be on the mend if you are noticing "cuteness". I always though colic was something that happened to horses when they ate too much green grass. :-}

    ReplyDelete
  102. You couldn't come up with a less painful way to meet cute doctors? I hope they appreciate your sacrifice, but you've got some 'splainin' to do when you get home!

  103. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Had been wondering what was up with no updates on the gang. And special thanks to all your helpers in your recovery.

  104. I'm so glad you got help in time and are on the mend. We feel like we're extended family out here in blog land, keeping tabs on friends and family without picking up the phone to do it. Take good care of yourself and use all your energy to heal, not worry. As much as we love your updates, we know that posting to your blog something that can wait. Since you're such an active, strong woman you should have a fast recovery. You're in our prayers.

  105. I said to my husband this morning ...I hope nothing is wrong on the ranch ( we talk about you like we do our family !! )it's just not like Carson. Just came home from work to find this post. Take care, relax, get well fast. Boy did you have a lot of followers worried about you !

  113. I'm so sorry this happened to you, but I'm also so thankful that you have cute doctors to fix the problem!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I could not figure out where you had gone and was worried, so thanks for the update. The family at the ranch will be fine, although they will be very happy to see you return. Johnny Cashcat and Smooch may even have arrived at a truce in suppport of Mom when you get home.
    Good for you to reach out for help---even if it took flashing lights and pain to get you to finally make the call.
    Do keep us posted.

    ReplyDelete
  115. What do you mean "don't worry"?! Been worried for 2 days! You have enough hanging from that IV pole to supply an army! Lovely photo. Can we have one when they get you up for a walk in your lovely gown and all snubbed up to that pole like a donkey gone wild?
    Hang in there. Get well. Robert the horse sends velvety lip kisses your way.

  120. And you thought the herd was demanding :) Glad the surgery is over and bases covered. I had hoped that you just sneaked away for a Labor Day included holiday. No such luck. Let the good people tend to you. This will take some time to heal. Good thing there is real pasture this year for grazing.

    Thank you, Linda's sister, for posting. And the picture is priceless.

  121. Big hugs from all of us (humans, cats, Corgis, horses, pony, and especially the donkey boys!) on November Hill. Get well soon.

    ReplyDelete
  122. As many have said, I knew something was happening when there wasn't a post on Thursday, it's just not like you not to let us know if you'll be away from the blog for awhile...like the marathon Breathing Bad break :-) So I worried and kept checking back: thanks to your sister for relaying your messages to us! What an ordeal..thank goodness the surgery was done in time. Now it's time to concentrate on getting you well. The ranch will be in fine hands with your friends. <>

  127. I was away when all this happened, but I'm glad I read newest to oldest, because you're right... I would have worried a lot. I'm still worried.

  128. Oh boy, I turn my back for a couple of weeks and you get all dramatic on me. Glad they got you straightened out. If there is one thing we all worry about you it's this very thing, I'm glad your wonderful support system kicked into overdrive.
