A bit better

Tonight I was in a slightly better mood than last night.  Not good, but not quite as bad.  I found out that 2 of the meds that I HAVE to take can cause my low platelet problem.  If I have to come off either one, I am gonna be upset.   I will talk to Dr. Wehbe (my cancer doc) about them next week Thursday when I see him to go over the results of my Monday bone marrow biopsy.  I really don’t think either of the meds are causing the low platelets, and my spleen isn’t enlarged, and I seriously doubt I have leukemia again.  Seriously, all I really know is that I have no clue why my platelets are down so low.

While digging around the net for info about pain killers you can take while you have low platelets, I found a site where they talked out low platelets as a condition.  Usually triggered by some other issue.  Other people out there (Not that I ever thought I was the only one) have as low and lower platelets than I do and are living their lives as best as they can.

Never did get find the answer for what pain killer I can take, just a long list of meds I can’t.  You’d think a net junkie like me would be able to find what I was looking for, but nope, no luck.  So, that is another thing to talk to Dr. Wehbe about.  No, I don’t want him to prescribe the pain killers, Dr Ransdell (my pain doc) is supposed to do that, when I see him around Christmas time.

In the mean time, I will just be depressed and go about doing nothing all day.


Well, it’s Wednesday at 11:28pm Central time, and still we can’t add characters to the D&D game for Friday.  Our DM said he would make it happen today when he got home from work, apparently he didn’t do something or did something wrong cuz I tried just a bit ago and nope, still no adding characters to the game.  Let us hope that he gets his stuff together tomorrow so we aren’t rushing to get it done on Friday.


Teresa has been having bad days this week at work.  It has to be rough being expected to be the expert on just about everything that her company does for the internet.   She is the sole person who knows probably 60% of what the company does.  And her boss and coworkers are all in New York while she is in Des Moines.  So they all resent that she kicks total butt on the work she does.  And the morons who she expected to get something accomplished while she was on vacation actually mucked some stuff up and put them further behind on the big project.   It’s just ridiculous that her company can’t find qualified people to help get the work done.  Oh well, I figure she is in for a few more bad days, then hopefully they pass and she can go back to having normal days or maybe even good days.  She deserves good days.


Teresa knows that audiobooks make me sleepy.  She has been listening to an audiobook all evening.  I have been yawning and trying to stay awake.  I almost went to sleep at 8:30pm, but fought that off by going outside.  At least it is an interesting book that supposedly I have read.  I lost a lot of what I have read when I went thru chemo.  Even some books that I totally loved and remembered that I loved are like new to me.  Which I guess saves us some money cuz I don’t have to buy new books.


Horizon: Zero Dawn is a cool game.  Teresa has been playing it.  I hope it wins Game of the Year.  It’s nominated you know.  If you own a PS4 it’s worth looking in to.


Teresa has declared bed time.    So, I am gonna cut this off.


crappy quality video for a great song.
