The best anniversary gift ever

The trip up to Mayo on Sunday might be interesting.  Snow and wind are in the forecast for the whole way.  A lot of snow, and a lot of wind.  Here’s to hoping the do not close the 35 cuz its the only way we know to get there.  Yes, Waze will be more than happy to point us in another direction to get there.  But it’d just be easier to just get there the way we know.

12 things happening on Monday, its run run run all day long.  I was wrong about the bone marrow biopsy, it’s actually on Tuesday with another test and a class.  Another social worker visit of some form starts Wednesday off, then a couple more tests.  Finally on Friday 3 appointments including 1 with my actual transplant doc, and 1 more test.  Then we have to be up there a week from Friday and then again on May 3rd.  Why they couldn’t make all these appointments on the same visit is beyond me.

Don’t know what the trip back looks like yet.  Hoping it’ll look better than the trip up there does.  But with Mother Nature forgetting to turn on Spring ya never know.


One of the appointments is with a dentist. So maybe, just maybe, I can get my tooth fixed.


Anxiety is way up.  I don’t want Bone Marrow Biopsy #9 and Spinal Tap #1 or any of these tests.  But I will muddle thru and everything will be ok.


I started writing my book again.  Going a bit slower this time.  7500 pages in 3 days isn’t slow, but its slower than 21 pages in 4.  I really like the story, I like the characters, I like it all.  Most of all I am having fun and that is the most important part I think.  I’ll tell you a bit about it in my next blog post.


Teresa did give me a new upgraded “nothing necklace”.  The old one was brass, this one is solid silver.  Just a simple ring on 2 strips of leather with a clasp.  Nothing special to anyone but me and her, but some people might get a kick out of seeing it.


We didn’t do anything for her birthday or our anniversary.  I am too fatigued to do much nowadays.  And on her birthday I hate a terrible stomach pain.  Oh well, we got to spend them together.  That is the important part.


A really short post, not even music tonight.  Teresa has went to sleep and I am going to join her.  Have a good one.  Good morning (now its 12:06am) and may the gods watch over you.

PEACE
