I HATE WAITING

I found out it was a 3 day weekend yesterday.  Tells you how much I pay attention to things going on in the world.  Seems that Canada has Family Day on the same day as we have President’s day.  So hello to my Canadian readers, I hope you have a good 3 day weekend as well as hello to my American readers, hoping your 3 day weekends are good too.

Being as its a 3 day weekend, the paperwork that arrived at my insurance on Friday won’t be in the system until Tuesday.  That kinda sucks as its going to put everything off an extra day or maybe even an extra weekend.  In case you haven’t noticed I am starting to get impatient about this whole transplant thing and just want to get things moving.


Last night Teresa and I went to Texas Roadhouse to celebrate our 26th anniversary of our first date, which was Valentine’s Day.  We didn’t go out on Valentine’s Day, cuz 1. It’s Valentine’s Day and 2. We were both really tired.  So we chose last night to go out.  It was nice, except they overcooked Teresa’s steak twice and undercooked mine.  But hey, we don’t go out for nice dinners very often and it was nice to get out.  So the company made up for the miscooked meat.  I love my wife, and I love that we have been together officially for 26 years.


I misread what Dr. Alkateeb wrote about the dentist.  I am now going to see the dentist on Tuesday.  Scraping and cavity filling… YAY RAH


I rejoined wireclub cuz I missed the few friends I had there.  If you chat on http://www.wireclub.com you can find me under the user name ClothinglyChallenged.  My little blurb says, Dance Naked let the whole world see your smile 🙂   Wireclub is a free huge chat site.  A little bit of everything is available to chat about.


Teresa is not handing the whole cancer/transplant thing very well I’m afraid.  She isn’t sleeping well and she is having nightmares when she does sleep.  Makes for a tired and somewhat grumpy wife.  She is writing a blog now, but it’s not for people consumption.  I hope that helps.  I think she is going to back on clonazepam real soon so she can disconnect and sleep.  Clonazepam is good for that.  She’ll get a doctor to prescribe her some, so she won’t be taking mine.  No worries about that.  Please, no one that reads this tell her that I told anyone about this, this is her issue that I wish I could help.


Having cancer again sucks.  No question about that.  I wish it wasn’t so.  I am just glad that it was found early enough for something to be done about it.  Dr. A said that if we didn’t deal with it soon it would morph into chemo-resistant leukemia and I would be dead in 4 to 6 months after that.  So the transplant will happen way before any morphing takes place.  The sooner the better in my opinion.  I’m ready to go tomorrow, but I understand everything in due time.


The lady who informed me that my brother is not able to be my donor mentioned casually that there were 3 matches in the donor database.  Hopefully 1 of those will be a perfect match.  Yeah, I will still have a greater chance for Graph vs Host Disease than if it’s been my brother, but at least I will have a 100% match which means less chance for outright rejection.


I got out all my Skyrim notes and the big book on Skyrim that I have, hooked up the speakers to my laptop to get good sound, got all prepared to play and meh, I don’t want to play right now.  Too blipping tired.  I slept on and off until 3pm, I shouldn’t be so tired.  Fatigue sucks.  Makes it where you can’t live your life.


Oh yeah, if anyone is looking to UP their credit score doing nothing really, open up a Fingerhut account.  They report good every month to all 3 credit reporting agencies if you don’t use it or if you use it per there terms.  They give you a credit line without looking at your current credit too.  So new or bad credit can get a credit line with no issues.  Just a friendly piece of knowledge I pass on to my readers.


WePay/GoFundMe was able to deposit into our Credit Union Account, so it’s all good now, we are getting the money donated to us.  It’s annoying that it wouldn’t go into the account we wanted it to, but hey, we are getting it now, so I guess it’s all good.
