I think my cough that has been mostly from my throat finally moved down into my chest. I have a definite wheeze now coming from my lungs. And the cough has taken a nasty sounding turn. I probably should go see Chris (the PA), but I see Dr. Wehbe on the 9th and go to Mayo to see Dr. Alkhateeb on the 10th. I can live with a wheeze and a nastier sounding cough for a few extra days. Probably just bronchitis anyway. I have lived through much worse.
I would complain about the fatigue, but instead I am going to complain about the early waking up again. 4;25, 5:15, 3:30, those are times I have woken up in the last week or so. Dr. Wehbe prescribed Restoril (Temazopam) yesterday bit Teresa forgot to pick it up. So she is gonna pick it up today, maybe I will have a good night sleep tonight Yesterday was the first day that I napped after getting up at 4:25. I am having problems napping for more than 45 minutes, which is strange because I used to nap for 2+ hours at a shot.
I didn’t get “SICK” from the chemo, at least round 1 of the chemo. I just felt like crap, but that could have been entirely from not sleeping. With the exception of one lab visit she took me to, mom’s visit to take care of me was a wasted trip (On that part), It is still great to see her.
My mother-in-law is coming next month and staying for a few weeks I believe I heard. It is fine, I like my mother-in-law. She will take good care of me if it is needed. I just don’t think it is going to be needed. But Teresa feels I can’t be alone the second week after the chemo, she is probably right on that account.
My mother has tentative plans to come back in March if needed. That is cool of her. It isn’t cheap to fly into Des Moines and it is worse to fly out. Plus a rental car for a week. Mom is 75 years old and living mostly on Social Security. She does get financial help from my brother,, so I guess she can afford to come more often than she used to.
Hmm, Mayo is not receiving the faxes of all the tests they ask for from MOHA (no long MOHA, now Mission: Cancer + Blood). I am going to have to ask for a good fax number to send to at Mayo and make sure MC+B are faxing the results. But of course, I can’t sign in to the online system at Mayo right now for some reason. I have another round of testing on Monday at MC+B so we will try this again.
All my Skyrim: Special Edition characters turn out to be close to the same. it’s either an orc warrior or a khajiit warrior. But I finally made a khajiit pickpocketer. So she is going around picking pockets fairly well. I quicksave before and after each picking, and I NEVER pick the same guys pockets twice. As of now, I have successfully picked probably 20 pockets. For the achievement, its 50 pickpockets and 50 locks picked. I am well on my way to getting that achievement, She is also going after ALL of the daedric items to get that achievement too.
I am still having fun with Skyrim: Special Edition, it looks so pretty on my new laptop. There are things I never noticed on my old laptop. On the old laptop, it put me on low settings, on this new one it is letting me run on Ultra. So the little things really stand out. I want to get a character to level 80 to fight the Ebony Warrior. I want to get to level 50 to fight legendary dragons. Right now I have one at 41 but I don’t know what to do with her now. I’ll either figure out what to do with her, or I will run another character up there.
I am not playing ANY other games, not even Civ 4 Warlords at this point. (Civ 4 and Civ4 warlords ae the only OTHER games I have on this laptop). I am sure one day I will be bored of Skyrim: Special Edition and I will go back to Warlords. It happens now and then.
