They finally got the keys to the house.

Well, my mom and brother got their keys to the house in Chesterton today, finally.  So, that means my STILL NOT DEAD YET party will be held in the Chesterton part of the Region this year.  That is assuming I am still alive on August 8th, 2020.  I don’t remember their address off the top of my head, but I guess I got plenty of time to get that information to you guys who are planning on making it to the STILL NOT DEAD YET party.  I hope more people come to the party this year.  It should be even more fun than last year.


I am recovering fairly well from Mayo.  The only part left hurting is my mouth where the tooth was removed.  They told me it would hurt for around 5 days, we are on day 3.  So, I got a little to go.  The stitches have dissolved though.  So it appears to be healing up.  The baby shots are a little tender but they don’t hurt.  And the bone marrow biopsy never really hurt.  Like I said before, I would happily take 20 bone marrow biopsies that feel like this one over 1 that hurts.


Teresa and I are trying to get out of our next trip to Mayo.  Firstly, the day they scheduled Teresa can’t do because of work.  Secondly, it’s just the results of the bone marrow biopsy, which I get thru the portal anyway.  Seems silly to drive 8 hours to just get something he could give me over the portal or by phone.  He has given me bad results over the phone before, so it should be a no brainer.  Besides we are scheduled to be at Mayo the week of Thanksgiving, so it’s not like we aren’t gonna be there soon enough.


I’m still upset that I am gonna have to miss Thanksgivingfest with the Gang and Thanksgiving with my family.  But I guess that my health is more important than having fun with loved ones.  Seriously though, I fought for different days at Mayo, but my Doc was having none of that, I guess these tests are that important.


I feel better than I have in quite a  while.  Still not great, but better.  I think the infection that was above my tooth that was removed was causing me to feel icky.   That and I think I was dealing with depression, which Dr. Eastin tried to fix with Lexapro, but I didn’t like the side effects.  But I don’t feel depressed any more.  Mood wise, I feel pretty good.


I went on a new force myself to eat diet.  Treating food like medicine.  I have put on 4 pounds in 3 days.  I only dropped about 10 pounds less than I wanted, so I guess I gotta watch this.  I really don’t want to have to go back to the dietician because then I was overweight again.
