I don’t want to be sick

I’m sick.  Sick enough for Teresa to contact Mayo.   Waiting somewhat patiently for a response from them.   My chest feels like someone is sitting on it, I got a cough, my nose wants to run, my head hurts, and I ache all over.  Can’t run a fever cuz I am on steroids.  Well, I proved you can before, but you aren’t supposed to be able to.   I got another virus of some kind and I am afraid it’s gonna put me in the hospital.  Either here or at Mayo.  Don’t care which one to be honest, except its easier on Teresa here.  I hate being sick, just delaying getting off the immuno-suppressants which is delaying further treatment.


I had to cancel D&D tonight.  Pineville waits another week.  I feel just too rotten to even try to run the game.  I hoped Tylenol was going to make me feel somewhat better, but it didn’t,  so the players got 4 hours notice.  I hope I don’t end up in the hospital cuz it means I might not be able run next week either.  One way or the other, Pineville and the mine are what comes next.


I just talked to my mother.  She is disappointed that they can’t come tomorrow.   I don’t want to get anyone sick.  So I asked if Jim could change his days off to the week after Thanksgiving.  Teresa was cool with that too.  So I wait to hear from mom or Jim.  I’m bummed, I really wanted to see them.


I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND THANKSGIVING IN THE HOSPITAL.  Just want to make that perfectly clear.  Holidays in the hospital SUCK.  Nothing good comes out of it.  Try getting released on a Holiday if you are better.  HA.  Like 2 doctors covering the whole hospital.  So we can just rule that out now.


I think Pucky and Mojo are worried about me.  They haven’t left my side except when I took them outside to take care of business.  This is above and beyond their normal hovering, even Mojo is following me around the house as I mosey o so slowly.


It’s day 2 of Teresa being back in the office.  She says its loud, that she was used to working in silence.  I can see that.  I miss her being here all day.   I miss looking up and seeing her sitting at her computer.  I miss having someone to talk to during the day.  But as I pointed out before, it was time for her to return to the office.  I am taking as good of care as I can of myself barring this assumed Virus.


Mom is coming for Christmas.  Jim is thinking about coming earlier in December.  I said just tell us a date and you are welcome to visit anytime.
