Of medical and Dungeons and Dragons and more

My arms are red, swollen and hot where I got my baby shots at on Friday.  I do not remember (neither does Teresa) this being the case days later from the first round of shots.  It’s bad enough that Teresa made me message Dr. Alkhateeb about this reaction to find out if its normal or not.  My arms are really tender right now.  It sucks.

Earlier today we went to the Eye Doctor.  I knew my vision was worse, Teresa thought her vision might be worse.   We both ordered new glasses.  Teresa got a pair that looked incredible on her.  I changed up my look and went with a pair of Oakley’s that “fit my face perfectly”.  Since my lenses are progressive, mine cost almost (but not quite) twice as much as hers.  But now we are both going to have Adaptive Transition Lenses version 8.  Supposedly they get dark quicker and get lighter 3 minutes quicker.   I guess we shall see (literally).

Teresa took apart my CPAP, cleaned it real good, and put it back together.  Tonight we find out if it works.  Yeah, I did not even look at it yesterday after the failure Friday night.  Teresa just grabbed it and took it away.  I hope it works.  Would hate to tell our insurance that it doesn’t work and I need a new one.  But I am serious about my desire to use the CPAP every night.  And will fight with insurance if its borked.

Tomorrow, early in the morning (8am) I have to call Dr. Wehbe’s office to try to get in and get my labs done before 10:30am.  Might be difficult on a Monday, but hey gotta do what I gotta do.  Need my cortisol checked before 10:30am for some reason, so I will drag my butt out of bed way earlier than I normally do and try to get it done.

So, anyhow, I am still not sleeping well.   Between the regular not sleeping well I have been doing, my CPAP dying in the middle of the night, and my arms hurting so much as I sleep on my side, I have just not been sleeping good.  Maybe Teresa fixed my CPAP, maybe my insomniac tendencies will stop, something has to give, I am so tired.

I am counting the moments until Aravas launches again.  My Dungeons and Dragons campaign is a fully thought out one for a change.  I have a lot of stuff ready to roll, pretty much broken up into 3 hour increments.  It’s going to be good.  I gave the party Feats.  So, I am not as worried about the TPK.  Feats can make a significant difference.  I now think it’s going to be a fair fight between the undead and the party.  Like I have said, I changed how the undead are gonna be spawned, so it is possible to get a bunch of wimpy undead but likewise as possible to get a bunch of tough undead.  Randomness Heh.

Wednesday is gaming at Mayhem Comics and Games again.  I feel like an old man there, especially when adults bring their kids to play.  But I want to meet as many people as I can so I can get a group together to play in the Hole.  I only want a party of 6 but will take 8 which is way too many.  The thing is that most of the people are already in groups who are in campaigns, but we shall see if I can pull some people away from those groups.  Anyhow, for now I play in a Strahd campaign. B L Zebob, the gnome necromancer will plod along with the party.  We are so many, we’ll just swarm Strahd and he will be toast.

Thursday is my first redone root canal.  Since I do not want them to abscess better to get them done sooner as opposed to later.  So, first one gets done Thursday.  Then the next one hopefully the next week.  The second one is the “if we can’t fix it, we pull it”, so I am kind of glad it happens later.

Friday is Strahd campaign number two.  I found out yesterday that we are going to play next Friday.  And I told Jet that unless some unforeseen happens between now and Friday I will be there.   Fedha my dragonborn paladin wants some vampire blood on his flail.  He’s a silver dragonborn so he breathes cold.  Which is (hehehehe) cool.  Seriously, it’s the only dragon breath that is a Constitution Save.

Somewhere during the week, I hope to drop my car off to be fixed.  I want the steering and suspension fixed before I drive it to my brother and mother’s house.  6 hours with messed up suspension would just suck and the suspension is messing with the steering.  We were quoted 800 bucks in Rochester.  I bet it’s gonna cost more here.  But Teresa got a recommendation of “a good and honest” mechanic.  So we are going to give him a try.  The other thing that could go wrong is the big belt that hold the 2 halves of the engine together might be bad.  If it was to break, I would be dead in the water so to speak.  We were quoted 1600 bucks in Rochester for all of it, I am guessing it’ll be over 2000 here.  The joys of living in the middle of nowhere.

I’ve got to say it.  I hated another WWE PPV.  Extreme Rules was boring and predictable.  And we left the show with Brock Lesnar as the Universal Champion.  ZZZZZZZZZZZZ  I am about to surrender WWE and cancel my subscription cuz your programming sucks.  Vince needs to retire and they need to hire new writers, writers who have a clue of what will entertain the audience at home.  I mean, maybe it was really cool for people there, but watching it here, I was bored and I am sick of Brock “I don’t work enough to even be considered part-time” Lesnar.   Should have skipped this PPV like I did Stomping Grounds.

Last night I watched AEW’s Fight for the Fallen.  It was a good show.  Yeah, they are shoving the Elite down our throats, but they are also showcasing talent which I have never heard of but are down right entertaining.  And they proved me wrong when 50 year old Dustin Rhodes hung with 29 year old Nick Jackson in their tag match and didn’t look like an old man.  Maybe that means their is hope for Chris Jericho who is only 48.
