It’s a beautiful day in Adel

Sitting here on this beautiful Monday morning wondering where the weekend went. Heh, funny thing is last night seemed to stretch forever, and now I am complaining that the weekend went by too quick. Oh well, it’s early Monday morning, Teresa is already “at work” in the next room, I’m thinking about what I have to do today and coming up with a whole bunch of nothing really.


My mom and brother are gonna arrive some time today. Probably around dinner time cuz they had stuff to do before they left to come here. They are basically coming here to crash for the night and then heading out to Colorado tomorrow. Mom has plans to go apartment shopping Wednesday and Thursday. Mom says they will stay here a bit longer on the way back. That’s cool with us.


Normally Monday mornings I rave about Jason’s running of his Dungeons and Dragons Eberron campaign. Thing week’s game got cancelled at the last moment due a personal issue Jason has. Jason, I hope you are feeling better today. Anyhow, Eberron can wait another week, still only have 6 or so sessions left before the campaign is over.


Tuesday’s new campaign Feise San Aeglais will be officially starting on June 30th. I did finally come up with a good idea for a main them of a campaign only problem is there is no BBEG as of yet, I will have to come up with some way of adding one. Cuz what’s a D&D campaign without a Big Bad Evil Guy.


After Jason’s Eberron campaign ends, he plans to run Spelljammer. D&D in space. I am down with it, but that means I have to make a new character. If you know anything about me, you know that I can’t decide what I am going to play. So I have made several characters already. And will probably make several more. I will eventually settle on one or two and then finally one like the day characters are due. it’s all good, I like making characters.


My next medical thing is labs and a visit with Dr. Wehbe Thursday at 9:20am. Then chemo the 29th 30th and 1st. Then labs and appointment with Krystal on July 12th. Then chemo on July 27th 28th and 29th. Rinse and repeat every 8 week cycle until the end of November. Then I get to decide if I am gonna come off chemo or stay on chemo. That’s a big decision for the rest of my life. Anyhow, November is a long way away, so I don’t need to ponder that subject much now.


My next shrink appointment is at end of July, I don’t remember the day. But at that appointment we are gonna seriously discussed Seasonal Affective Disorder. He told me before he can stop it from being a factor. Well, I want to hear his plan cuz September will be here before you know it and I DO NOT want another 4 months of Depression and 4 months of rebuilding relationships that I blew during the depression like I did last year. So, I am gonna trust Dr. Eastin when he says he can get me thru it without those issues.


Other than those medical things, I don’t see Dr. Alkhateeb again until the end of November. When he said he didnt need to see me for 6 months Teresa and I were floored. Since the transplant, not counting the time from Covid-19, the longest we went without seeing him is 2 months. So, we will see him in November to discuss coming off chemo.


I can’t think of anything else to share this morning, so I am done. You all have a good day.
