I should be getting blood on Halloween

I went for my silly CBC today.  From the 8.5 hemoglobin I had last Friday, hemoglobin is down to 8.0.  Which technically with the symptoms I have I could have gotten blood tomorrow but I chose to wait till Thursday when there will be no question as to if I need blood or not.    My hemoglobin should be 7.5 and I should feel and look so horrible, it won’t matter that it’s Halloween.  Yes, I should be getting blood on Halloween, seems appropriate if you ask me.  I actually expect some of the nurses in the infusion lab to be dressed up, maybe not super costumed, but costumed to a certain extent.


Yesterday I posted a State of the Cancer address on Facebook because believe it or not, not everyone reads my blog or gets personalized phone calls or messages from me. So, I decided to write about it in quite detail on Facebook.  Got a bunch of likes and frowning faces, and some comments which were nice.   No one got goofy religious beyond “Your in our prayers” Which I appreciate being a Pagan Minister and all that.  I promise my readers here that nothing new was shared, everything they now know you already have been told a couple times at least.  My few loyal readers are my favorites anyway.


It’s the day before my mom’s new home is supposed to close and the bank is still asking for paperwork.  They haven’t told her yes or no yet.   I would have told them to go screw themselves already.  But mom appears to have the patience of a Saint.  And so, tomorrow she finds out one way or the other if she got the loan and then I will find out one way or the other if she got the loan.  So if she did I can correct my statements from the other day about where my STILL AIN’T DEAD party is going to be.  But for one more day, we wait.  Approximately twelve hours from now she should know if she is a new homeowner or not.  With all the bull crap they put her thru they should just give her the loan now anyway.


I haven’t played Dungeons and Dragons since the night I got all confused and screwed everything up.  To be honest, I haven’t felt up to it.  I haven’t really felt good long enough to play since my hemoglobin first dropped, and that was months ago.  Even after they give me blood, I still don’t feel up to it.  I wish I did.   I’ve had several opportunities to play, but I honestly feel horrible and I dont want to take that out on my friends.  It wouldn’t be fair to them.


The only game I have attempted to play is Civ4 Warlords.  Which is in my top 5 favorite games of all time.  I didnt like Civ4 until the Warlords expansion came out o so many years ago.  It’s one of the few OLD games that will run on Windows 10.


The only other game I am considering dusting off is Skyrim.  I bought it for 9.99 in a bargain bin and now I have like 2000+ hours playing it.  I will play in more when I feel a little better.  Oh yeah, its an 11 year old game which still runs on Windows 10.
