A friend who I believe to be Pete read this 85 of my posts the other day. Making my total of posts read to be 90. WordPress went apeshit about having so many posts read in 24 hours. I think it’s funny looking at the stats for my blog now. 1 super-reader causing chaos. Got to love it. 85 posts he went thru, not sure if its one sitting but in 1 day. It’s funny. I couldn’t do it, not even with my own posts which at least would have some interest to me. But hey, I’ve been told my blog is interesting to other people too, maybe there is something to that.
Since being back from Mayo, I have lost 2 more pounds, but I am eating 5 or 6 small meals a day per instructions. Confuses me when I follow orders and results aren’t what they are supposed to be. I will admit my meals have be very small in general cuz eating has been difficult cuz I had that tooth removed. Having to train myself to eat on the other side of my mouth which is also missing a tooth. Oh well, I will keep eating and hopefully put a few more pounds on, just frustrating.
Doc said my fatigue is from my hemoglobin and my lack of eating. Can’t do anything about my hemoglobin except get blood infusions every 14 days. Same as I have been doing for a while now. Can do something about my lack of eating. Doc (not Alkhateeb, but at Mayo covering for him) says I should be eating around 2000 calories a day. I can do that I think. Just not everything I eat has calories on it. I have no clue how many calories are in Teresa’s cheesy chicken and peppers or sweet and sour chicken. I don’t know how to figure it out either.
I know I mentioned this the other day, but I am still excited for my mom and brother getting their new house. I really didn’t think it was going to happen, with all the crap the lender put them thru. But it did go thru and now they have 2 houses. But Jim can afford payments on both of them until they get the old house fixed up. Just needs a little work and then they can sell it and be down to just one mortgage. And only have to worry about 1 house and the house is in Chesterton.
Feeling sick mage me miss Shannon’s running on Call of Cthullu last Friday night. I was really looking forward to it too. I haven’t played any game since September and here it is mid-November now. This sucks. The Eberron book comes on the 19th. Will be just another Dungeons and Dragons book I have collected. It’s not like I am playing anything now, so another book is just another book. My mind just feels junky most of the time, confusion is a common companion. Cant play if I cant think.
Found out the chronic cough might be caused by my blood pressure medicine. So, Teresa sent a message via the portal to Mayo to Dr. Alkhateeb, asking for him to try a different blood pressure med or let me go to Chris (my PA) who is my primary care provider. Either way, if this cough can be gotten rid of, I am all for trying something new. This cough sucks and has been around for entirely too long. COUGH COUGH COUGH every evening. Makes for miserable evenings. Evenings that start around 3 o’clock and end when I go to bed. You try coughing that much and see how excited you are about possibly stopping coughing all together.
