Blood tomorrow it’s a good thing

I’ve ran a slight fever from Friday to Sunday.  Even a slight fever burns hemoglobin.  So, my original estimate of 6.8 tomorrow has been modified to 6.6.  I feel like a truck has run over me and not a little truck, a MAC Truck easily.  I really wish that Dr. Shorty would have let me get blood on Friday, then this weekend wouldn’t have been so bad.  I mean I probably still wouldn’t have felt great, but I would have felt a hell of a lot better than I do right now.   But as it stands, around 10am tomorrow, I will be getting 2 units of blood and things will be better, not great, but better.


I haven’t stepped back on the scale in a couple days, but I have the distinct feeling that Teresa’s home cooking has me back over the 200 point.  Cheesy chicken and peppers, the cheesy ham and potatoes and finally lasagna.  And Teresa makes the best of all 3 of these.  I believe tomorrow night is ravioli.  If not tomorrow then soon.  Teresa takes such good care of me, I don’t know what I did in a past life to deserve her in this one cuz I know I didn’t do anything to deserve her in this life.  But I am one lucky guy to have her as my wife.


Chris (the PA) diagnosed my cough as bronchial spasms.  They can be both wet or dry, and can be chronic.  And sound different from time to time.  At the pharmacy now are an inhaler, duo-nebulizer charges, and COUGH MEDICINE.  We just forgot to pick them up Saturday.  Simple mistake.  Chris is a nice guy and a great PA.  Reminds me a lot of Mike the PA that used to serve Adel, except Chris doesn’t have a drug problem. I like Dr. Donahue too, she is the Doc who oversees Chris and Megan (whom I have never met).  Doc is cool people too.


I have decided to keep my AirPods Pros.  I’m gonna be transferring a bunch of music from my laptop to my IPad and iPhone, And the Pros will work great with them.   24 hour battery life.  Better sound.  Just better all around except they don’t work with my laptop, that sucks.  But technically my regular AirPods are not supposed to work with my PC either, but they do.  So, I will keep both the regular and the Pros on my QI Pad alongside my phone and all will be well.


I’m sick of having cancer.  I want to go back to where I was a year ago.  Perfectly healthy.  But no, my cancer has to be the aggressive kind the comes back.  I was just about to try to get my life back together and slam, CANCER returns.  Been dealing with cancer long enough (since 2015) and now I am not getting better or getting worse.  This sucks.  One way or the other I doubt 2020 is gong suck like 2019 did.  Hopefully the DLIs will begin to help my hemoglobin and I will sorta be back to normal.  It’s a long shot, but the only shot we have really.


Mom and Jim are set to be moved into their new house on the 20th.  Not taking them long to move at all.  The movers wanted a fortune to move the furniture.  Jim just jumped on Facebook and offered 100 bucks, pizza, and beer in exchange for help and got more people willing to help than he needed.  So, pretty much everything is moved except the furniture which is moving on the 20th.  I hope it doesnt decide to snow on the 20th, that would suck.
