Odds and Ends

Good morning again folks.  When you have cancer, any morning you wake up and aren’t sick it’s a good morning.  Heh.  I hope you all are dealing with the lockdown as best as you can and I hope we don’t have too much time left being locked down.  But then again, I hope they don’t let us loose too soon cuz history has shown us that pandemics comes in waves.  First round of the Spanish Fly killed only around 3million people, they released their lockdown and 50million more died.  Lets hope that history doesnt repeat itself, that would be highly bad.


Tuesday night we plaid in Maloon, my Dungeons and Dragons campaign.  The party managed to kill ALL of the Yuan-Ti do to my craptastic die rolling.  I think my 2 big bads each hit once.  Anyhow, much fun was had, but next Tuesday they are in for a huge shock, hehe, I got plans for them and none of them are not nefarious.  I really like the party composition, they fit really well together and work really well together.  I just feel good when I see them working together like that.  Six individuals working as one, something you rarely see in real life.


Yesterday I went for blood tests and had to be stuck 3 times to get the blood.  Hey, I am not a human pincushion.  Well, they got the blood eventually. My hemoglobin continues to climb, while my platelets do the 2nd yo in yo-yo and were down, but this is my off week, so its all good.


Today is my Wehbe video visit and my Dr. Eastin video visit.  Wehbe at 1:20 and Eastin at 4.  This is going to feel weird.  But hey, its better than going into the doctors offices and running the risk of getting Covid-19.  Yes, I know they are all wearing masks and disinfecting like mad, but is that enough?  Who is to say that is enough?  Anyhow, I will let you know how these video doctor visits go.


Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons campaign was supposed to be on Sunday but one of the players had to bow out this week, so Takao, my ranger, doesnt get to start until next week.  This week instead Jason is running a one-shot on Sunday that I won’t be playing in.  A couple things contribute into me not playing on Sunday.  But I don’t mind, cuz he made it Point Buy for character generation AFTER I had already made my character.  I have went in to my hatred of point buy character generation here before.  So, I won’t get into it again.  Just know that point buy and standard array are wrong and rolling stats is right.  But Point Buy alone wouldn’t scare me away, I got other things happening that I don’t want to get into.  Anyhow, it’s all good, it’s just a one-shot, not the campaign.


Still 36 days until my appointments at Mayo.  This is the lonest time that I have went without seeing Dr. Alkhateeb since I first met him, literally its been since January and I won’t see him until the end of May.  Now, if my blood tests weren’t so good, I would have had to go back up there sooner, but because they were so good, he felt I didnt need to risk Covid-19 exposure.  So, I get to get exposed during the 2nd round of Covid-19.  Blah.


Oh yeah, Friday night, I am running my one or two shot Dungeons and Dragons adventure.  Yup, I decided this morning that I am scrapping everything I have prepared for it and starting over today for tomorrow night.  I just made things too hard and need to tone things down a bit.  It’s all good.  I can make an adventure in 24 hours, no sweat.  Somehow, though, my group is 2 druids, a cleric, a barbarian, and a rogue.  1 druid in the party is normally rare, but 2 is just unheard of.  But hey, it’s all good, it’s a one shot (maybe 2).


I feel good, really I do.  If I didnt know I had cancer and was getting chemo every month, I’d swear there was nothing wrong with me.  Maybe I am in remission and just don’t know it yet.  But I feel really good.  Even during my off weeks, I normally don’t feel too bad.  So, I wait 43ish more days to find out if the chemo did the trick or not.  We shall see.  We shall see.


It’s morning pill time #2, and then nap time.  You all have a wonderful day.  BTW, its supposed to be in the high 70s here today.  I will be back tomorrow to let you know how the video doc visit went.  PEACE.
