Gary Rowbverry had his hip replacement surgery on Monday?(Jan. 8) in Houston as scheduled. By Tuesday afternoon he was back at his apartment.? Gary said as soon as he woke up after surgery he was no longer hurting. He says he feels great and hopes to be back to work in a couple of weeks.? Typical recovery time is 6 to 8 weeks but he’s hoping the doctor will clear him to return to work since, as we know, he really doesn’t do anything.
Row says he was really crabby, which he attributes to his bad hip, and also always tired which he attributes to his bad heart.? Now that he’s?taken care of those two issues he feels like a new man.? He said, “the Crabby Row is gone!”? And he has a lot more energy than he did have.? Anyone wanting to call him and test his crabbyless?attitude, you can reach him at 314-715-5429.
Update: (11/22): Talked with Gary today and he’s getting ready to check out of the hospital and go back to his apartment.? He said he’s feeling really good with minimal pain and everything is looking good. He’s going to start cardiac rehab to build himself up. He can’t drive for 6 weeks.? ?Once he gets his heart built back up he’ll undergo the hip replacement and said he’ll be as mean and ugly as ever and good for another 30 years.? He wants to thank everyone for their well wishes, thoughts and prayers.? He’s hoping to be able to come back to St. Louis around Christmas but if not, by February for sure.

Rick was not thrown from the vehicle as first reported.? He had his seatbelt on.?

Jim “Rabbi” Murphy was injured in a trash accident while cleaning up spilled trash. In his words:
I was cleaning up the spilled trash and I was walking down the hill to pick up the last of it and my left foot slipped out from under me and my right knee folded up and tore my patella tendon. Had surgery yesterday to have it fixed. Owie.
We’re wishing Rabbi a speedy pain-free recovery.
Kurt ‘Hoss” Mirth underwent menisectomy and chondroplasty surgery on his ailing right knee this morning.
No, it wasn’t a cigar explosion. Gerard ‘Fireball’ Pfeffer spent part of New Year’s Eve at the hospital after an incident at his place on Lewis & Clark. Apparently his bonfire making skills leave something to be desired. Where’s Ranger Rick when you need him?
Fireball wasn’t satisfied with his arsonistic skills in making a bonfire. The fire was petering out and the always helpful Fireball had the brilliant idea to add an accelerant to the bonfire to coax it along. Accelerant of choice: gasoline. Fireball’s reflexes weren’t as good as they were when he was a younger man, so guess what happened?
POOF! While it was way too late to burn his hair off it did scorch his head a bit. He drove himself to a hospital near his home in St. Peters where he was treated for his injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.
Stay tuned for more Adventures of Fireball Pfeffer!
