D&D, Health, and Hopes

The D&D Game starts tomorrow.  Only 4 people on night one of the game, but next week will have 5.  Assuming the 4 can rescue the 5th tonight or early next week.  I have been looking forward to this for quite a while, it should be a good game.  It sucked that I had to sack one friend from the game.  Hadn’t spoke to him for 22 days even after asking him questions directly thru messenger.  I hope to become friends with all the people that are playing in my game that I am not already friends with.


I still wish I could find a local game that I could get in to.  At least until I can’t play anymore.  It’s frustrating…there has to be enough gamers in the Des Moines area that 1 more should seamlessly fit in.  Need to go to Mayhem Comics on Wednesday night (D&D night) and ask around.  But how many groups would want to add a dying guy to their playing group?


So, I guess I am stuck playing games online that I run.  So far, people who have responded to my request for players have really been understanding.  The players who are playing starting tomorrow night all know I am dying and I will miss some cuz I will be in the hospital.  So far, they have all been cool about it.



Health wise, I’m eating appropriately for a change.  Putting on weight.  Having problems drinking enough still.  I used to drink plenty before the transplant but since the transplant it’s just been tough.  I don’t know why drinking has become such a problem, but hey, I am trying.


Yeah, I spent 36 hours in the hospital Thursday and Friday.  They tested me out and it turns out I don’t have anything wrong with me (besides the obvious).  I started walking again, but 1/2 hour is way too much for me right now, 20 minutes is about it.  I learned that the hard way.


Fatigue is still a major issue for me.  Got the doctor and company stumped as to why I have so much fatigue.  He says I should have some fatigue, but not sleeping as much as I am.  It’s just I wake to take my pills, eat and walk.  And then veg around the house, mostly in bed.  Usually taking a nap or two during the day.


I am hoping to be healthy enough on Friday (next Mayo appointment) so that we can progress in the great plan.  Dr. Alkateeb has been holding off cuz my numbers haven’t been right and/or I have had a virus of some form.  We shall see if I can do the healthy thing for at least a  week.

I am 49 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.
