Today is not Saturday, it feels like a Saturday.

Well, today was supposed to be a big day for me…  Donor Lymphocyte Infusion (or Stem Cell Infusion) Day.  Still processing Dr. Alkhateeb’s change of mind.  It’s all good though, I didn’t want the infusion anyway, just all the sales pitches he gave us before were basically thrown out the window.  But I am happy about it, doc said there is no right or wrong with how to do my treatment now.  He further went on to say I am an unique case.  I can handle that I guess.  He reserved the right for the DLI to be used at a later date.  I can handle that too.


Woke up at 6:47am.  Fed the dogs.  Took em out.  Got em treats.  It feels like a Saturday but it’s a Friday.  Today is gonna be a screwed up day.


Teresa doesn’t like the schedule Mayo made for May 22nd.  She is going to call them and move some stuff around.  She specifically doesn’t like when I get a bone marrow biopsy early in the morning and have to deal with the pain meds wearing off while still walking around Mayo.  So she wants to move that to the afternoon.  I am fine with that.   The whole procedure takes about 45 minutes, they can schedule me in after I see the doctor.  It’s all good though, I don’t mind the early morning bone marrow biopsies.  So, if Mayo doesn’t want to change the schedule, I am fine with that too.


I’m hoping that Danny gets the invites for his game sent out today.  I understand about yesterday, I’m not heartless.  Just he’s been promising them tomorrow, tomorrow, Thursday for quite a while now and it really is time to get the invites out.


I did call my mom last night, she was very happy for me.  She is happy that I called her for a good thing for change.  Normally my medical calls are all bad news.  But I am happy to have called her with good news.


I’m definitely going to my brother’s party on June 22nd.  But the plan is to arrive on the 20th and leave on the 25th.  It will make my mom happy to see me and give me something to break up this long summer.  Cuz it’s going to be a real long summer.


I should go weight myself, but right now I don’t want to know.


Obligatory anxious school mention.

I am going to be a 49 year old Freshman.  I am going to be older than most of these kids parents.  Am I going to have anything besides school in common with anyone?  Will I be able to make friends with anyone?  Do I need to make friends with anyone?  I’ve been a loner for most of the past 20+ years, do I really need more friends?

School starts August 21st, last day to drop with a full refund is September 4th.  Important days to remember.  Not that I am planning on dropping, but it has been known to occur.

I get to take the ALEKS math placement test again after the April 18th, I think.  That is what the ALEKS site says.  I have to score 14% to get into Business Math.  I scored 25% the first time, I think I am good to do at least the same.  It’d be a shame if I have to take remedial math, I used to be really good at math, but that was then and this is now.  Firm believe in use it or lose it.

On Friday I plan to go to the school on Monday to take care of business.  On Monday I might have other ideas.  I’m flakey that way.

I am 49 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
