Day +53 I think

I think it’s day 53.  Was supposed to see the doc today, but instead got one of his RNP’s, Mary, whom I really like.   I tried real hard to not give her the rhinovirus.  Kept my mask on, covered my coughs, etc…  My blood pressure is really high again, she is putting me on an OLD blood pressure med (I forget what it’s called) but it has worked before for me a long time ago.  She also gave me cough medicine with the step down from codeine.  Anything is better than robotussin.  She also gave me the promise is this cough medicine didn’t work she would write the prescription herself for codeine cough syrup.  Yup, a doctor type person actually gave their word about codeine cough syrup.  The world can end if she comes thru with it in a few days.


This cold is kicking my butt.  I don’t feel much better than I did when it started.   I guess I lied to Mary and the nurse.  I told them I was feeling better.   Will feel better when the cough is under control.  2 weeks to go on it if nature holds true.  It’ll be nice to have an immune system again.  It’s coming, just a few months of German engineering to go.


Somehow we figured escape day to be August 25th, which will be a nice belated birthday present from Dr. Alkateeb.  According to him it might be a bit before that (won’t argue with that) but another round of chemo is in my future, but Dr A said that can happen in Des Moines.  Woot, Home.


Speaking of home, the thing I miss most is the bathroom.  Here the toilet is HUGE, my feet dangle and the shower has like zero pressure.   Those two things will turn me off from staying in the north house again.  Supposedly the south building has it better.  So off to the south we will go when the opportunity to stay at the Gift of Life again.  Which will happen.


Well, dinner is on the way and I have nothing else really to say.  So, off I will go.  You all have a nice evening or whatever time zone you read this from.


it was the song on alexa, had to share.
