Bert Case update

Here are the latest updates on Berrrrrrrrrrrrrt Case.

Bert's had a complication over the weekend - but not related to sepsis. He pulled one of his vital connections apart in the early hours Saturday and it's taking time to get him back in sync. Hopefully that can be totally resolved by Tuesday so he can return to lungs and legs; Monday's the holiday so he wouldn't be having OT or PT anyway. Please keep praying hard for him....we appreciate all your wonderful prayers more than you can imagine! Thanks, Mary #prayforBert

Bert ended the week decently- spending some time out of bed, in his chair and doing some PT. His caregivers continue working on getting fluids off his organs and out of his system, which will make a lot of things easier like more attention to his lungs and getting them to function independently. Again today he told a friend he is better - which we all like hearing and knowing. It's a far slower process, getting through and over sepsis, isn't it? I continue to be grateful and humbled too when strangers come up to me and tell me they're praying for Bert - he's such a wonderful rock star who is happy to accept each of those prayers. We gotta keep it up! Thanks! Mary #prayforBert

Bert was much better Thursday - he was in his chair when I arrived at the hospital. And he had PT while I was there - he has basically had nearly a week off, though he has been doing bedside PT and OT. He still has a slight infection of some kind and remains on an antibiotic, but he'd been accumulating fluids throughout his body which have bogged him down in recent days. He's now on a diuretic to get rid of the fluids and to make it easier to continue weaning him from his trach. He told me, along with a couple of friends, that he's better and that's what we like hearing. He's a fighter. And needs big-time prayers! Thanks all of you for continuing to keep Bert front and center - you can't imagine how humbled he is by this devotion to him! Mary #prayforBert

Bert was a little livelier Wednesday, but still not doing independent breathing and hard physical therapy. Perhaps it's just a 2-steps back scenario. He did do some OT, which for him is an upper body workout. He was quite prescient about the Powerball drawing, figuring we weren't going to win anything - he sure was right about that- not even one little number! My prayers continue for his recovery and that it speeds up - thanks for your continued prayers! Mary #prayforBert

Bert seems to be taking some time off - and perhaps he's earned it since he's been working hard lately at independent breathing and physical therapy. While he was so jovial Saturday and we had some good laughs, he's been rather quiet since then. He has done some OT, which for him is an upper body workout and today we did a little arm wrestling and he beat me at it...he also nearly bent back my left hand knuckles. But he hasn't done PT yet this week.....I pray so hard with all of you that he'll have a big bounce and soon! Thanks...Mary #prayforBert

Bert's lungs were taking another day of rest.... he has some congestion to get rid of so Monday was rather quiet. He did some good OT/PT, mostly using his upper body which is winning out over lung performance these last couple of days. He sure does want to come home and has asked me to keep the Christmas tree up for him which is no problem for me since I love it and its cheer. We are in need of another huge round of prayers this week so I humbly thank you for them! Mary #prayforBert

My prayers are with Mr Case. But that hospital bill is going to be unbelievable.

9:15 - re your comment, I just turned 68 and am having more fun than ever. And got much more planned out. Go stuff it!

Sorry, but it's my day off said...

I'm sorry, but, I didn't know hospitals took off holidays from vital work. Since when is this the case? Is there a list of services that will not be done at a hospital on a holiday?

does he know this very private information is being published here? I guess some care about this information, but to me its a waste of bandspace.

Still praying for Bert. Will also say one for 6:35. Sounds like there is a definite need there.

Bert will get over this.
Hell, he survived a pissed off Kirk Fordice & Ward 3 junk yard dog.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
