D&D and other things

It is early Monday morning, Teresa just came in to say Good Morning and ask how I am doing. She then went back to work in her lady lair. On the rare occasions that I use it, does temporarily become a man cave? Nah, to feminine, I’m just a dude in a lady lair. I really enjoy that Teresa gets to work from home still, I have no clue how much longer this will be allowed, but I know she is gonna keep working from home until they make her come back to the office.


This afternoon, in the heat, I will be going for round 7 of chemo. Today is supposed to be mid-80s with heat index in the 90s, while tomorrow is supposed to be mid-90s with heat index in the 100s. I chose the wrong times to have my chemo, 2pm, ugh its gonna be miserable walking from the parking lot to the building. But I only have to deal with the heat for 4 days, 3 days of chemo and 1 day of appointment with Dr. Wehbe.


I moved Session 0 for the Chronicles Dungeons and Dragons game to this Thursday, the 4th. No sense in waiting. I have everything ready and the players all seem ready. So, for the sake of sanity, I moved the date up. That will allow us to have Session 1 on the 18th. There will be no gaming at session 0. It is mainly for getting to know each other, relaying information, and answering questions, and finally making characters. Once that is done, I have a short homework assignment for them to help me know there characters better, and its is lieu of a backstory. I got these questions of a YouTube video on how to run a session 0. I like most of the questions, so I am gonna post those on Discord and have them type up the responses and email them to me. Then I will incorporate those answers into my world. This the 2 weeks between session 0 in session 1. I’m gonna be busy.


I am anxiously waiting for the chromosomal and tp53 mutation results. I wasn’t anxious yesterday but today I am. Go figure. I know that they are going to be fine. I have no reason for this anxiety. But I am slightly nauseous, and jittery, I hope the results come soon.


Jason has added other Dave to his Sunday night Dungeons and Dragons Eberron game. I am happy about this. Other Dave is also playing in the Chronicles D&D game on Thursday nights. Other Dave is a real nice guy who left D&D a few months ago, said he was done, then came back for a one shot and was hooked again. D&D is like that, it is hard to walk away permanently. I’m just glad that other Dave is back.


My Dungeons and Dragons Maloon game will resume next Tuesday, but then I should have my results that I am anxiously waiting for. I’ve had stuff ready for their next adventure for a while, but with the bone marrow biopsy and all the accompanying anxiety, I just wasn’t up to running the game. Next week I should be fine. And Maloon should continue.


jubal’s game will hopefully conclude on Friday, if not this Friday then next Friday. It’s all good either way. jubal’s second attempt at DMing, things went a little wild on him, he improvised well enough. He did a fine job one night one considering we didn’t follow his planned path. Heh, if I had a dollar for every time my party didn’t do what I planned, I’d be rich. But I digress, I hope we get to the Goliath in need and we conclude our mission.


My mom and brother plan to come visit on the 22nd now. Staying for I don’t know how long. They never stay long, it’s boring here, especially considering I am still in a self (well Teresa) imposed lockdown. Only going out for doctor’s things. Can’t go out for dinner, movies are still closed till who knows when,not that there is anything I want to see, and this is a small town. So, I don’t blame them for not wanting to stay long. It’ll be good to see them though, I do not see them often enough. This visit may be cancelled if Jim gets the job in Colorado.


Dr. Alkhateeb has banned me form groups larger than 10 until there is a vaccine for Covid-19. Which blows my party and thanskgivingfest out of the picture. it’s really hard to think of anything I can do with a group of 10 or less. I want to go someplace and do something. I’m tired of being cooped up. This sucks.

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.
