I slept about 11 1/2 hours last night. I switched to Restoril instead of Ambien. Slept like the dead. Don’t even recall Teresa getting up to go to work this morning. I think I like Restoril better than Ambien. More even sleep. And as you all know, I do love my sleep. The problem is we have very few Restoril left and if Dr. Alkhateeb doesn’t want to write the script, I am sol. So let’s hope Dr. Alkhateeb understands the need for me to sleep and writes the prescription.
So far, so good on the cycling front today, but then again I haven’t been conscious that long. But I have been up an hour and I’m not ridiculously happy or horribly depressed, so we will call it a win so far. The cycling was driving me batty. I was really worried I was gonna cycle til the results of my bone marrow biopsy. But it seems, as of right now, that my cycling is back under control.
Today, after I write this blog entry, I plan to work on the class at Udemy. I believe we were just about to make our first webpage when I stopped it. Since we haven’t really learned any html, I don’t think it’s going to be much of a webpage. Maybe in the lesson she will show us some basic html and then make us do the webpage. But the last thing I remember her promising was we will build our first webpage. Since I know basic html, I could probably skip ahead a bunch, but I feel its kind of important to hear it all. And to do all the lame assignments as well as the cool ones.
Then tonight is Tuesday night D&D back from it’s hiatus.
I want to do lunch with Drew and Jon but the weather is not cooperating. Its being a typical January and I don’t go out if its ridiculously cold or actively snowing. I have the luxury of not having to go out in said weather. Probably the best benefit of being disabled. But the reality is once I get cold, I can’t warm up for hours. So I just avoid the cold when I can. If I can, I will catch them soon, if not it will be 55ish days when its Spring.
Speaking of cold and snow. Its supposed to be snowing today, but I don’t see any falling. I believe it did rain/freezing rain this morning, but I don’t see any fresh snow, yet. They said 2 to 4 inches here for today. Then tomorrow it supposed to get brutal col and just colder and colder, with a random snow day thrown in there. Yeah, I would say I love Iowa winters, but that would be a lie.
Our gas fireplace has been broke for a few years (like 7) and Teresa finally got it into her head that she wanted it fixed. So I sent a request for service to the repair people, they are taking care of people without heat first and we will be taken care of when they can fit us in. Seems reasonable.
This is the problem with Restoril, it doesn’t like to let go. I have been up for nearly two hours and I am still yawning and tired. But I can get used to it again, I have before.
Time is crawling by. I need it to be February 6th, then I need it to be February 27thish. I have things I want to do that require the results of my bone marrow biopsy. And time is just going so slow.
The bone marrow biopsy is key to giving life to my inkling. I can work around the chemo. I can work around trips to Mayo. But I can’t work around bad results on the bone marrow biopsy. Bad results are just gonna put a damper on everything. Bad results will squash my inkling. And I happen to think my inkling is a good idea.
