Live with a chronic headache…

It is Friday, the end of Teresa’s work week and the beginning of four days of cleaning house in preparation of my mom and brother coming.  Well, it won’t take 4 days to clean our house, Teresa has done a wonderful job of making sure I don’t thrash the place.  I do have to clear the way into the spare room downstairs, as of now it is blocked by Magic the Gathering boxes, well, the boxes that the cards came in.  10 minutes between now and Wednesday and I’ll be done.


Danny’s game session last night was great.  I got to play hero and put my body on top of the refugees and take the hit.  Wasn’t much damage.  But it was cool anyway.  I was leery about a group of complete strangers getting together, but we worked together well and everyone was super friendly.  We went til after 10pm central time last night, if that becomes regular, I am gonna have to bail, it made me physically ill playing that long.  Danny said he would try to be done by 9pm eastern time, I think.  Oh well, we’ll see how it goes.  Danny did a fantastic job.  Everyone did a fantastic job.


I have decided to run the roll20 game.  I have picked Monday at Noon central time til 3pm central time.  That gives my friend Jason a chance to play.  That gives my friend Danny a chance to play.  That gives my friend Dave a chance to play.  And finally it gives Cori a possible chance to play another game.  I am a firm believer you can’t play too many days of the week.  Oh, yeah, I have decided I am starting my game on January 7th, the first Monday in January.  Now I still have to run this daytime game by Teresa.  Since she is working from home and our computers sit side by side.  My gaming might get in the way of her working.  We shall see.  So, you guys hoping for my Monday day game, hang on, its not definite yet.


Teresa is back to playing WoW.  She has 5 of the 6 new races unlocked.  A lot of work if you ask me.   But if it makes her happy, it can’t be that bad.  MMORPGs are not for me any more.  Maybe someday, but not now.


I have had headaches every day/night for the last 2 weeks.  Today’s was exceptionally bad, the shot didn’t even put a dent in it.  Neither did 4 (2 every 6 hours) Tylenol.  I’m afraid I am gonna end up at Mercy yet.  I don’t want to be admitted to the hospital,  I never want to be in the hospital again.


At least now I am drinking enough.  Glad that nightmare appears to be over.  I am not eating what I was eating before the transplant.  But I am not losing weight like mad anymore.  As a matter of fact, I maintained between last 2 doctors visits.   So, for the first time I am normal according to the BMI chart.  LOL, like I care.  I just want to be as healthy as I can be and I falling a little short of that goal I feel.


Cori has decided that her game will begin sometime after Thanksgiving.  That’s cool, she has a lot to get ready for Thanksgivingfest and Thanksgiving for her family.  So, no pressure from me on getting her game going.  It’s all good.


Damn, Thanksgivingfest is next weekend.  I really want to go.  But I can’t.  Bummer.


Must get rid of the headaches.  Every night having a headache is ridiculous.  I guess If they continue over the weekend and are still going on Monday, I will go see Chris.  See what he can come up with.  Chris is my primary care person.  He isn’t a doctor, he is a PA-C.   But he seems to know his stuff and he’s a nice enough guy.


Staring at this white screen isn’t helping my headache, so I am off.   Talk to those of you I talk to later.  Everyone else, have a great weekend.
