Today I went and got a cat scan of my brain. Having low platelets and a headache for 13 days triggered some alarms. And better safe than sorry, off I went to have my cat scan. It too about 10 times longer in registration than the test took. lol. Yeah, the registration ladies were slammed, the waiting room was practically standing room only. Busiest I have ever seen them. But I waited my turn, almost took another Jeff’s turn but that was only a little screw up on their part. My turn was 2 people later. heh. Anyhow, I got registered and plopped my butt back down in the seats and waited for my cat scan. The other Jeff went before me, he was in there for about 4 minutes, I was then called and was in there for even less I think. Heh, I will take a cat scan over an MRI any day.
I also let my therapist go. I didn’t want a huge fight over Mayo. See her husband had AML shortly after I did. He went to Mayo and they treated him like he pooped gold according to her. Well, I have been very vocal about how Mayo treated me, so needless to say, it would have been awkward for me to be bashing Mayo to her while she holds them in such high regard. I still think I need therapy, but I don’t think I can continue with my current (now ex) therapist.
The rest of the day, all of the morning and into the afternoon, I relaxed and did nothing. OK, not nothing, but nothing truly constructive. I didn’t even play any Skyrim or anything. I just laid in bed like a lump. It was a very fine way to spend most of a Monday. But I am glad I had to go out, it was 43 degrees today, beautiful for winter in Iowa.
Tomorrow night is the 2nd session of my D&D game. I believe I am ready for it. If not, I will get ready tomorrow during the day. I like which direction the party chose to go. It should be a fun and interesting time, and have our first taste of mumble combat (which is always a mess for first time mumble players of which we have 3). It’s all good. We will have some laughs and they will get some treasure and they will be quasi-low level heroes. Works for me.
This Friday should be session 3 of the Friday Night game. First two sessions were a lot of fun, I don’t forsee there being any difference in this session. The DM has decided that he is gonna give us items which grow in power as we level. Cool, I like that idea. Too much work for me to track so I probably wont be stealing it.
Pucky and Mojo got into Teresa’s candy stash and proceeded to mow down a lot of chocolate. They seem ok, but a little sluggish. We will watch them closely. The biggest thing that has happened any other time they have gotten into chocolate is diarrhea and you’d be surprised the amount 2 Chihuahuas can put out.
I feel good. That has been iffy in recent times, but I feel good now, right this minute. And you know what? I’ll take that. I Feel Good.
Yesterday, I started a female wood elf character in Skyrim, named her Lilly. The only reason I made a female character is their is a perma-buff you can get in the game which gives you major plusses vs boss type enemies of the opposite sex. Since 95% of the boss type enemies are male. I decided to play a female. And it’s totally funny that they (Bethesda, the company who made the game) changed the way people talk to a female vs a male. The male computer characters are all nicer. lol. Lilly is only level 12 right now, doesn’t have that perma-buff yet. But is cruising along nicely.
Tomorrow I think I am going to drive up to Grimes to see Quality Marble & Tile to get a price quote on getting tile put all over our main floor. Teresa originally wanted heated tile but that turned out to be cost prohibited. Now she just wants tile everywhere. I got her to agree to throw rugs over said tile, she agreed “as long as they are washable”. I can agree with that.
Wednesday I am going to lunch with Drew the business furniture guy I have mentioned several times. We do lunch every now and then, taking turns who is buying. Well, he thinks he is buying this time, got news for him, he gave us a really expensive chair, I am buying his lunch this time and next time and maybe the time after that.
And Thursday I see my Cancer Doc, Dr. Wehbe. I have about a zillion questions for him now that my platelets have tanked and I have started platelet infusions. Teresa has a bunch of questions for him to. After all, this is gonna be our life for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.
Music for the masses………
