5 days till Biopsy day

It’s February 1st, 5 days till Bone Marrow Biopsy and 20ish days until the results are available.  Anxiety is up.  Confidence that its gonna be good results is down.  I noticed that I am paler than normal yesterday, another bad sign.   I don’t want to have to get blood or platelets while at Mayo on Wednesday.  But if my numbers drop too far that is exactly what will happen, longer visit to Mayo.  Anyhow, the biopsy should go off without a hitch.  They are old news now.  I take a little nap, they poke another hole in my hip, I wake up.  I go about my business.  No biggie.  The wait for the results is gonna kill me.  I hate waiting in general.  I hate waiting for medical stuff more.  I hate waiting for cancer-related medical stuff most of all.  But we shall wait.


Now that Teresa made the MacBook Air do thing correctly, I should be able to go over the things that I just listened to in the Web Development class and actually do the exercises. Now, its just getting the gumption to listen to the same thing over again.   Repetition is good for learning, right?

As it is, I am really close to getting into SQL.  Which is Databases.   This part I need to know for my idea.  Anyhow, I am around 70% done with the first pass of the class.  I feel I have learned a lot, and I know where to look for stuff I didn’t learn well.  Lots of documentation for this stuff on the web, go figure.   I feel that at 11.99 it was a good deal.  I dinged the instructor on my 50% review cuz she goes too fast and causes me to 1. pause a lot.  2. back up a lot. 3. make mistakes cuz I am rushing to keep up.  But I still think it is a good class.


It’s supposed to get up to 30degrees today.  It started at -2.  Doh.  Got a lot of warming to do to get the supposed high.  Then tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40s, and Sunday in the 50s before the heatwave blows thru and we go back to winter temps and winter weather.

Its supposed to be freezing rain/snow for out trip to Mayo on Wednesday.  YAY.  not.  I hoped and hoped that we would have a clear day for this, but its not to be.


I decided on Teresa’s birthday present this year.   Gonna buy her the digital codes for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5.  So she can play them too.  I believe they work on the PlayStation 4.  She would enjoy them and I don’t have to think harder.  lol.


The class is just the start.  After I am done with the class, I plan on starting on the idea.  I found a wiki which will help me out immensely as far as content goes.  The actual programming of the website I will be doing.  It’ll take me a long while to get the programming done…  I am still NOT a programmer.  But I will muddle thru.  I didn’t pay for this class to not do the programming myself.  Programming and Database work, I never thought I’d be looking forward to doing both.


I am really into Santana right now and always into Michelle Branch and the Wreckers.  So it seemed appropriate to post this video.
