An omission, CPAP problems, and more

What I forgot to say in last nights blog post (I was really hurting and really tired, so forgive me) is the all of my blood stats went down, platelets even down into the low zone.  This could be caused by a couple of things:  A body naturally fluctuates in these numbers from time to time; just caught me at a bad time.  I have 2 teeth infected currently, the infections can totally screw up blood start. Or the 3rd reason and we don’t want to thing about it, AML or MDS is coming back.  Now, obviously we are hoping for the first or second reason and NOT the third.  Anyhow, I hope to get in to get my blood drawn on Monday which is real soon, but it’ll eliminate the first option.  We shall see.  For the record, I am not worried yet.


First night with the CPAP again was an abject failure.  Everything looked right, but sometime between 10:45pm and 3:30am it shut off.  And I could not get it to turn back on, and I wasn’t going to futz with it at 3:30 in the morning.  So here I am up at 6am again, wondering what went wrong.  And I am tired, but not sleepy or maybe I am sleepy, I don’t know.  All I know is I am upset that my CPAP went kaput on me in the middle of the night.  I am bummed that I did not get the good night sleep that I was so looking forward to.  Hopefully something just jiggled loose and it’s a quick fix, but I have to wait for Teresa to get up, wouldn’t want to wake her on her weekend.


PLUS, sleeping on my side, like I do, was exceptionally painful.  My poor arms are still hurting.  They will hurt for a few more days, then I will forget about the pain.  But for now, it hurts to lay on them either side as I got multiple shots on both sides.


Avaras, my Dungeons and Dragons campaign on Tuesday nights Session 1 is coming soon.  The summoners and the undead are ready.  It’s going to be a tough fight for this particular group.  I am really hoping against a Total Party Kill (TPK), I have only had this happen one time in all the years I have been playing (well, multiple times to the same party).  But for some reason, this group doesn’t seem as strong to me as the last group, on paper that is.  I could be totally wrong, they could just wipe through the undead like they aren’t even there.  But it’s all good, the players will have fun and so will I.


What I decided to do about Strahd on Wednesday and Strahd on Friday is absolutely nothing.  Not going to intentionally tell either DM about it.  A little shifty on my part, but I don’t think I will be harming anyone.  I can play stupid about things that I already know.  It’s all good, it’s just Dungeons and Dragons.

I did not play last night in the Friday game.  I got home way too late and my arms hurt way too much.  I do not know when the next Friday night game is.  It’s all good, I will play in the next one, whatever Friday it is.

And Wednesday night is set in stone, just wish we had more than 2 hours to play.  3 would be perfect, but I understand that Mayhem doesn’t want to have to be open that late in the middle of the week.  So, 2 hours is what we get.


Teresa and I made eye appointments for tomorrow (yes, Sunday) at 2 and 2:20, with Dr Lock.  He works at Lenscrafters, the only eye doctors on my insurance.  He is who I went to last time and the glasses were perfect ( no headache, no swimming feeling).  So, go back to where I got good service last time.  YAY, new glasses, I will be able to see better again.
