Just so you know I am alive

Nothing new to post here.  Got a Wehbe labs/visit on Thursday, then its wait for April 10th to have to Bone Marrow Biopsy and see Dr. Alkhateeb.  Then wait a week or so to find out the results of the Biopsy.   Yup, it is a lot of waiting.


Finally truly beat Civ 4 Warlords on Domination.  Scored over 15,000 points, which gave me the highest rating.  Actually kind of weirdly proud of it.   Trying to do it on Conquest, still too slow on my part.  Did score my 2nd personal high score on Conquest.  Was just 100 points shy of the highest ever done by me on Conquest.


Still haven’t played Skyrim in a long while now.

Still looking for a new game to play.  Bethesda is releasing a space game later this year.  I don’t know much about it really, but if it is from Bethesda, I will probably buy it.  Bethesda is the company which put out Skyrim, so the space game shouldn’t be too bad.


Ordered Teresa’a birthday present day before yesterday, was told it was out of stock and wouldn’t be here till the 31st, then I received an email saying the 28th, today I received another email saying it will be here this Sunday.  I hope it comes early Sunday so I can get it and hide it before Teresa wakes up.  I think I did good on the gift buying thing.  Not as good as her necklace, but yeah, a good gift it is.


Still not able to sleep through the night.  Have tried just about everything now.  So, just gonna wait it out.  Sleep like crap until whatever cycle I am in runs through.


Still drooling a bit.  Not nearly as bad as it was.  I think whatever caused it is gone and it is going to be better now.


I’m stuck +/- 200 pounds, which I guess is a good thing.  I weighed 230 before my transplant.  190 shortly after.  And have now be close to 200 for a few months.  It’s all good, I fit in 36 jeans again, instead of 40s.  I still have a gut and a 2nd chin.  But my sleep apnea has gone away for the most part (although Teresa says I do have it when I sleep on my back).   I have more energy when I am not dead tired.  Yeah, it feels good to be 200 poundsish.


Teresa says she wants to take me around town when I have my chronic cough.  No, I am not sick, this has been going on for years now.  Cough, cough, cough, shortness of breath.  She says it would scare people.  Boo, cough, cough.


I am already over the Corona Virus.  NO, not literally.  Mentally, emotionally, I am over the Corona Virus.  Floods my TV, floods my Facebook feed, comes up in just about every conversation with anyone and everyone.  Teresa seems obsessed with it, she keeps me up to date with all the information.  I practice social distancing anyway.  I wash my hands for 20-30 seconds anyway, I am a stickler for clean hands.  I am immuno-compromised, so both of those things were normal for me, now the rest of the world has finally caught up.


So, I only leave my house to go to doctor/lab appointments.  So I am on my laptop continually.  My new laptop makes everything prettier and sharper. I am hoping it keeps working until I die.not that a 4 month old laptop that is working fine is going to just up and stop (I hope).


OK, I am done blathering here.  Stay safe folks.  Self-isolation is the answer.  Thanks for reading my blog.  You guys rock.

I am 50 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
