So Happy It’s Thursday

Still haven’t heard from Dr. Alkhateeb, he said he’d call me this week, wasn’t expecting to hear from him until Friday anyway.  This whole getting ready for a transplant has been a whole lot of waiting.  And I really hate waiting.  Anyhow, I am under the assumption that tomorrow (if) when he calls he will have all the steps laid out.  We got a lot to do before the transplant and it’d be nice to know when things are going to happen.  It will also be nice to know the status on my would be donors.  It’d be nice to know that one of them has agreed to be my donor and it is all set up.  Realistically Teresa and I are both in agreement that Dr. Alkhateeb probably still doesn’t know.  I hope we are wrong.  Anyhow, it’ll still be great to have things in motion.


I chose to cancel my water delivery service this delivery cycle.  I have the feeling that we aren’t going to be available to cancel it for the next service date.  Teresa thought I should keep it going, I just don’t want to have the hassle of having to remember it while all the transplant stuff potentially could be going on.


I am feeling pretty good except for the cough I got from my new blood pressure medicine.  Now I have the question, since the blood pressure medicine is working so well, do I just live with the cough?  Right now I decided yes.


Tonight we are making homemade pizza.  Pineapple Ham, Pepperoni, and Green Pepper. Teresa really knows how to make the pizza just perfectly.  Have I mentioned how wonderful it is being married to an excellent cook?


Thanks to my friend Caly I got a book called Dazzling Dialogue.  It’s a book that tells me everything I was doing wrong with my dialog I was writing.  And then it shows examples of how to do it right.  Right on, that is exactly what I needed.  And for 3.99 the kindle version works just fine.  I may just end up buying a few more of the author’s books on writing.  He has covered a lot of topics that I think would help me write a better book.  I got up to page 22 and then started reading the Dazzling Dialogue book and realized just how bad my writing was.  Other books might just be what I need.  Who knows.  But at 3.99 I can afford to buy a couple.


The fatigue is unreal.  I go to bed at 11pm and wake up at 11am.  Then take a nap in the afternoon for 2 or 3 hours.  Then it repeats day after day.  It’s 12:47pm now and I am thinking a nap would be good right now.  When I am not sleeping, I am so drained that I can’t do much.  Frustrating.


I downloaded EVE Online again with hopes to play it.  I played it once before several years ago, I remember it to be kinda fun but difficult.  I think this time I will read the forums on how to get started and maybe it won’t be as hard.  EVE is a space game, you fly your ship around and do stuff.  It’s an MMO, but not an MMORPG, I have no interest in an MMORPG right now.  Still burned out after WoW.


Speaking of World of Warcraft, Teresa was invited into the Alpha of the next expansion but I don’t think she is gonna accept it.  We got too much going on right now to give an Alpha run a worthy go.  As a matter of fact, since she got the alpha invite I don’t think she has touched WoW.  She goes thru cycles where she plays every night and then doesn’t touch it for a  week or so.


Heh, REO Speedwagon is coming to Prairie Meadows Casino in October.  I was thinking it might be a nice night out after I have recovered.  I should be good for a few hours out by mid-October.  Well, I look at prices, 156 bucks for the floor seats.  I was floored alright, dang c’mon, REO is a great bad but they haven’t really been current for 20+ years.  It looks like I won’t be seeing REO Speedwagon in October.


Teresa wants to go to the movies on her Birthday.  Which happens to be Easter Sunday and April Fool’s Day.  1.  I hate crowds.  The place is going to be packed.  2.  I don’t care to see Ready Player One.  The movie looks cableworthy. BUT 3.  I really love my wife and if she wants to go, we will go.  The other option is Red Boxing Star Wars the Last Jedi and staying in to watch that.  I am much more in support of that choice.  Either way, it’s all good, I’ll spend the day with the love of my life.  Her birthday present doesn’t get released until the 20th.


I never did find a dentist who could get me in while my platelets were up.  So while everyone is praying and sending good thoughts.  Please add a little addendum that my tooth doesn’t abscess when I have zero white blood cells.   Thanks in advance.


When I get back from Mayo, I may be looking for a new shrink.  I love Dr. Fialkov, but only having 1 day a month that I can see him is really inconvenient.  And having to call the secretary lady and hope she can get ahold of Dr. F if I need something is getting old.  So, I just might go in search of a new shrink.  I assume that while I am up at Mayo that they will keep the same meds going into me and I won’t have to see a shrink.


Yup, definitely going to take a nap.
