A right proper blog entry (no D&D talk)

it’s Saturday morning @ 7:22am. I fed the dogs like I always do on the weekend but could not get Mojo tog outside. No matter if I used nice Jeff voice or bad Jeff command he was not going outside for me. Teresa hearing my dilemma asked if I could use some help. Then she tried to get him to go outside and he still didn’t want to go out. Finally after 15 minutes she used her “you’re in deep trouble” voice and he skulked out. Turns out that like 15 minutes before I got up at 7 (yes, I slept in this morning) he had already peed in the living room. So he felt he had no need to go out. Sometimes I just don’t appreciate that dog, this was one of them. Not the way to start a Saturday morning.


As I said, it’s Saturday. Specifically Saturday, June 27th, 2020. More thunderstorms are expected today. And the temp is supposed to get up to 88 today. Hot + Wet = Humid. Yeah, another good day for me to stay in and do nothing constructive. At least that is something I am good at.


Well, I survived another week. Go me. Having an incurable cancer (even when it is in remission) makes you think like that. I had another week to spend with the woman I love, and I hope to spend many more with her. I want to live long enough for Teresa and I to take our 30 year anniversary trip. I have a lot of wants that require me to live, and I seriously hope I do. I have faced and beat some serious odds already and they keep getting smaller and smaller each day. But so far, I have kept trudging thru thanks to modern medicine, good thoughts and prayers, and the love of a good woman. The triumvate of my cancer survival so far.


Hey, I remembered to call Dr. Eastin’s office yesterday. 20 minute before they were supposed to close. And dammit, I got the “You are calling after house” message. So they cut out early on a Friday, annoying, but good on them, I hope they went and did something fun. I will try again on Monday. I really do need to get ahold of them and probably reschedule my appointment. Seasonal Affective Disorder season is almost (in the greater scheme of things) upon us and I am counting on him to not let me crash again.


I found my IPad again. I had misplaced in a couple months ago. It had been sandwiched between 2 books on my bookshelf. Needles to say it was an expensive paperweight at this point. But plugging it in brought it back from the dead and it should be at full power by now. I actually forgot why I was looking for it. But hey, I’ll use it for something until I remember.


Steam is having their Big Summer Sale, and there still doesn’t appear to be any games I want. But I will say, they have some good prices on this sale. I wish I could play twitch games, but the tendonitis in my hands hurts too bad. So, I look for nice safe role-playing games and none that Steam has really strike me as “I want to play that”. Ho hum.


Another chemo run starts Monday. Including this one only 6 more to go. Then I get to TRY life without chemo. This is a good thing, I think. I don’t want to be on chemo for the rest of my life and that is exactly what I am looking at if I do not try it in November. Even if I only get a month or two out of it, Hey, its all good. If it fails, I go back on chemo until that fails, then we try something else. And we keep trying stuff until we completely run out of ideas. But it all starts with the chemo run starting on Monday.


I think I am gonna go grab some cookies and some more Hawaiian Punch and go back to bed. It’s 8:32 now and I have no real reason to be awake. So let me go grab a video and then I will be off.

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.
