Welcome back, sleep, my friend

Heh, Teresa got stuck working all night, she went to sleep around 5:30am.  She must have shut off the Alexa alarms cuz I didn’t hear the 6am or 7am alarms go off, so I slept all the way to 8am.  So I actually got 9 hours of sleep last night and it felt good.  This did, however, throw on my morning med schedule, so now my 9am meds can’t be taken till 10am.  Not a big deal, not a deal at all, just have to remember to take them is all.  In about a minute I find out if the 9am alarm goes off or if Teresa just totally shut off Alexa.  Well, the 9am alarm did go off, she just turned the volume down really low.  I probably just slept thru the earlier alarms and she didnt shut it off.  Oh well, I needed the sleep anyway.


208.8 after my bowl of cereal this morning.  I told ya I was going start putting on weight again and so it starts.  Tomorrow I will be 210 for sure.  So not happy about it, but too lazy and too set in my ways to do anything about it.  I’m sure I will balloon up to 235 again, then level out like before.  At least my pants will fit right then.  It’s like this, I wanted to stay around 205, but my body wants to be 235.  My body will win this argument because I am lazy and I like to eat things that are not good for my weight.  So you reap what you sew and big Jeff is coming back.


My mother-in-law arrived last night, but the airline lost her luggage.  DOH, I went out to bring the luggage in like a good son-in-law and there was no luggage to drag in.  The airline says it will be delivered here today.  Sure hope so, she is without her meds and her laptop.  I would be lost without those things.


So, the weather looks pretty crappy here, it’s much colder than it has been and looks like its gonna rain.  But the kicker is its supposedly SNOWING in Minnesota.  And I am talking about a lot of snow.  No biggie, we will leave tomorrow for Mayo.  Minnesota is supposed to get Freezing Rain and Ice to go with their snow.  The trip to Mayo is gonna suck.  I have to convince Teresa to leave early so if we have delays it won’t be us late.


Danny is supposed to release the code for roll20 on Thursday.   When I will either be on my way to Mayo or at Mayo.  I will get the invite tomorrow evening when we are at the transplant house.  I’ll be the healthiest patient at the transplant house. Their wifi sucks, but it should let me accept the invite, it’s just a click.

I have decided on playing Cracked, my Goblin Battlemaster Archer.  He just sounds like the most fun.  I made 27 characters for Danny’s campaign.  Just had to narrow it down to the one which I will enjoy the most.  And Cracked won.


Aravas, my campaign, had their session last night.  I personally think it went really well.  I totally hate Chris C’s character and I am supposed to be impartial.  Screw that, for the first time in all the years I have been DMing, I wish a character would die.  He is roleplaying his character well, it’s just that the personality he chose I would want to beat the living crap out of in real life.  Can’t tell him to change, that would be not right of a DM.  And I won’t do anything intentional to hurt his character, but if his character should happen to die, I won’t be heartbroken in the least bit.  Everyone else is cool and chill and working together, he is just tagging along for the ride.


I’ve decided, even if I take the Math Placement Test again after the old one expires, which I will, I won’t change my schedule form Composition I to Business Math.  I do want to get English out of the way.  And the rest of the schedule seems fairly easy (although I may be wrong about that).  I think I can do Comp I without much problem.  Yeah, in my blog I have run on sentences, and whacked paragraphs, but that is how I think.  I can think all proper Englishy, so I am not going to worry about it.

I decided I am not going to try to learn Sign Language right now.  Maybe I will start going come Fall when I am at school anyway.  I was to learn it, it’s just not a good time to be starting right before or during my stem cell infusions and GvHD.

Anxiety over school is gone again.  No sense in fretting over something that is 100+ days away (I really should count the days again, we might be less than 100).  So I just going to be chill about school.   Something to look forward to in August.


Tomorrow I will be at Mayo Clinic again.  Tomorrow is just a blood test and a bunch of talk.  A BUNCH of talk.  Friday is the day of the Stem Cell Infusion. <cue ominous music chord>  Maybe I won’t have GvHD, the stem cells going in match the stem cells that are kicking butt on the inside.  Maybe they can all get along.  Not likely, but possible.  We’ll know what the results are on Saturday, here at home, not having a good day.  Yeah, I am very much not looking forward to this in case you didn’t know.

Then after the horror of round 1, I get to look forward to 2 more rounds.  And somewhere during all this I have to get my baby shots, cuz the school won’t let me in without MMR and a few others.  Don’t want to catch those and don’t want to spread those.  I don’t want to be an anti-vaxxer.

And hopefully doc remembered to order the typing of my blood.  I got to know if I am an A or an O.  Was an O all my life, given stem cells by an A, my blood type is supposed to change to A.  Maybe we will know Thursday afternoon.
