One of our more colorful and best loved and enjoyed is having a bit of a issue.  I talked with at length today and since last October he has been in and out of the hospital.  This last time he has been in a month.  He has some type of yet unidentified issue with his legs and the skin dying off.  They are sorta speaking Greek to Bushie and he had a difficult time trying to explain it to me.  The MD's seem to think it has something to do with calcification with the arteries?.  They are not sure and I am sure that the uncertainly has Bushie concerned.  As a old immunohematologist and bacteriologist, it sounds more like some infection but Austin has experts in that field and I am certainly not even close to that.
 
Perhaps those that know this extremely colorful man and give him a shout out or a post on this thread will improve his spirits.  Perhaps we can all email him a double shot of Canadian.
 
Seriously, I think he needs some encouragement from his friends.

    I think Bushie would rather have some bacon infused bourbon. And I wish I could bring it to him.

      Paul,
      I email him on a regular basis and was sorry to get this response yesterday, "Still in the hospital."  Not good.  I suggested that he come to Ohio State Medical University.........one of the best facilities in the country and he could stay with us.  So far no response.  I pray for him every day.

            I just talked to Bushie.  He sounds tired and is expecting to be in the hospital another 2-3 weeks.  He was surprised that there was a thread on Roadfood dedicated to him!  He's a good guy.

                One of my favorite Roadfood memories from last year was driving around with Bushie, north of Austin checking out great roadfood spots and enjoying a couple of
                excellent microbrews.

                I was very dissapointed when Bushie was unable to join as at the Glee Club event in Mobile this year, but knew that his health is important- Bushie- get well soon I'll be sending good, positive thoughts and prayers your way.

                    Update - I'm out of the hospital. Still in the healing process, but I was glad to get out of the hospital after seven weeks!!!! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and good wishes.

                            Although I'm upset that I never get any downtime at work that so many others seem to have and that I'm stuck at work (by choice) on a beautiful Sunday afternoon,  despite all that- THIS news has made my day!

                                WJ - I almost thought you were going to say you wanted to go to the hospital for seven weeks.

                                  Welcome back, Bushie.  I'm happy to hear the doctors were able to figure out the problem and get you on the road to recovery.

                                                  Bushie,
                                                     Glad you're improved. You had me worried for a moment there.
                                                     My only major complaint is a type of inherited arthritis that manifests itself as gout. I have a leaky heart valve, but it's stable.
                                                     I'll have a little more time for Roadfood now that I've managed to get three columns "in the can" for Flagpole Magazine, with another on my mind right now.
                                                     And don't get too back to "normal" -- people will wonder what you're up to.
                                                        Wholeheartedly, Ort. Carlton, Abnormal in Normal Town in Athens, Georgia.

                                                       Update on Bushie:  He was home in August for about 1 week and was not getting better so he checked back into the hospital.  I sent him a text a few days ago and he said he was getting out on Tuesday (today).  I just sent him a text and he got out this morning and is glad to be home.........how much hospital food can a Roadfooder stand?  Hopefully his ordeal is done and now is really on the mend.

                                                        I hope he is getting better..........I have never met him in person, but he is certainly a favorite!
