Complicated Living 101

Went and saw Dr. Alkhateeb again yesterday.  Long day, left here at 6am and didn’t get back until 8:30pm.  Damn was I tired.

Dr. A is still treating me.  Not shifting into palliative care.  That gives me some hope I guess.  Treating me in hope that he can come up with cure for my MDS.

Have to cure the MDS because if it doesn’t get stopped, it will turn into incurable AML, and that is literally 2 or 3 months to live.

So, if nothing else, Dr. A is prolonging my life.  Which at this point, that is all I want.  I want to live until April 3rd, 2019.  That is past the party, past Teresa’s birthday and past our 26th wedding anniversary.

I really hope he does find a way to cure me.  I don’t want to die.   But we are still at this 20% chance of survival.

D&D is set to start a little over 2 weeks.  Have to get on mumble on the 25th for a few minutes.  But it looks like everything is cool with it.  I think I have 1 power gamer, 1 noob, and 3 normal players.  I doubt the power gamer will stay cuz I don’t run a power game.   But we shall see.

The Ain’t Dead Yet party is set to roll March 30, 2019.  I have asked everyone who is planning on coming to send me their snail mail address so I can send them a real invite.  Real invites are going out in January.  In case you read it here an not on Facebook, please send an email to

I have the building (and the tables and chair)

I have the caterer (will be talking to them this week)

I have the DJ (and Dance Floor).

Now all I need to know is who is coming and how many are they bringing.

I still need to find a hotel which will give discounts.  I know I am gonna need at least 20 rooms.

I am having fun planning the party.  At a time when I should be all DOOM and GLOOM, I’m in a pretty good place overall because of this party.  My new therapist said she though it would be good for my mood.   Well, she was right, but once everything is in place, I shift into wait mode and wait mode SUCKS.  But that is not for a little while yet.

I am 50 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
