Rallying support for CH/HH/JCG
« on: March 09, 2019, 10:07:37 AM »
Hi, all!
With his confirmation, I wanted to share an update on our beloved longtime poster CharleyHorse/HookyHornstein.   He has not been doing well after suffering from a sudden severe condition that left him hospitalized since mid-Feb, resulting in surgeries, too.    :03:

I don't know the details of the surgeries or exactly what is causing the most pain for him at this time, but he is still in a hospital and in recovery.  I'm not sure also if he is well enough to talk, or wants to, as I corresponded via text to let him know he had a care package on the way and I was able to get some responses back which lifted my spirits.   Not sure how long he will be in before getting released home, but I am praying its soon and he can find comfort quickly.

If you can send up some healing thoughts, please keep our old friend in your hearts.  If you would like to send a card or anything, I was able to get the hospital info where he is currently and can likely give it out privately.   I'm sure any good cheer he receives will help as he battles to get back to his life again.    Hopefully he's well and in good spirits soon and can drop in for his own update, but just wanted to pass along this info to you since I was told it was safe to share.

Thank you Erin.  Its for sure a really rough patch for our good friend JCG.  

Like with all illnesses it makes one’s friends feel kind of helpless, but at least we can send some prayers his way and add some levity to help keep his spirits up.  

And, I’m cheering for Texas in solidarity with him, until he gets better.

Tough news! Hooky's not someone you ever think of being mortal. He's more of a force of nature. Irascible, silly, sometimes moody and petulant, but ever present. Sorry to hear he's been brung low for a bit.

Get better soon! We need more weedeater and bass boat stories.

shoot, I was just in Leander playing the golf course Hooky recommended

If I had been paying attention I could have looked up the horse-pital and tried to visit the old man

I've met Hooky more than a few times and as Droog says, Charley doesn't seem to be the type that will ever have a health issue.

git well soon Hooky!!

BTW, i don't know why but I can see all your PM's from other people.... like someone asking for a MAGA hat icon, lol.

Not sure if you were aware of that or not, or if others can also see the PM I just sent to you with the address info.  Or maybe I didn't send a PM like I thought and did something else, but whatever... looks like you got it!

I'd guessing and hopeful that we will soon get some entertaining stories about hospitals and nurses and other interesting things

Whoa, I had no idea we have CFN walls.....  I learned something new today!  

I will take better precautions next time with verifying the PM process is being used.  ;)

I've had a great life but a ough last year and a scary last month beyond my control.  I'm still trying to recover.  Thank you for your friendship, kind thoughts & prayers.

I didnt like the tone of that last post.. It didnt say nothing 'bout trains, prison, mommas, or getting drunk. 

We need you back in proper form, Sir ..... Soon.

Hey JCG. 

I and Mrs. 847 had the distinct pleasure of shaking your hand a while back (at Ruby's), and sharing this little message board community with you. For probably 15 years or so? You were the first CNN refugee to show up. You cannot be done here, or in anything you've done. Please be well. Please. I look forward to shaking your hand, once again. Peace and love, to you, and yours.

Hooky, we have not corresponded much directly but I love your wit, intelligence, and story telling. I pray your body responds to your treatment and we see that smart-assed Longhorn mouth of yours for another 30 years.

Hooky,

Get well soon!!  I'd like to gloat to you when A&M gets to repay UT for that last game.  11 more years to go.

Some good news: our main man left the hospital and is home.  He was there a long time.

My dear wife was hospitalized for about a month in 2016.  Every day felt like three.  A week was like a month.  A month in there, well, it can rearrange your whole life.  

No doubt JCG that you are one tough hombre.  

So glad you’re home my friend.
