I am back

I finally feel well enough to resume writing my blog. I won’t be going into gory details of all I have been thru, just leave it as I was sick and now I am feeling somewhat better. I get the results of my Covid test Friday or Monday unless the send them out on Saturdays. Yeah, kind of weird, the nurse lady said 72 from yesterday, but the email today said 72 hours from when the lab got it this morning. Either way I don’t think it was Covid. 2 weeks down was enough though. Today I just feel weak and tired.


It has been a beautiful Tuesday, July 29th, 2020. 89 degrees, but like 30% humidity, which makes it a beautiful day. This summer had some ridiculous heat but overall its been fairly mild. If it wasn’t for Covid, this would have been a most excellent summer. I haven’t left my house for non-medical stuff since March (one exception, a trip thru taco bell drive-thru).


Haven’t played Dungeons and Dragons for 2 weeks, feels kind of weird. I am pretty sure I will be up to running Feise on Tuesday. Chronicles on Thursday has to wait one extra week.


That one extra week is because next Thursday is August 6th, my 50th Birthday. Yep, I am officially going to be old. Mom said she is sending me all the stuff for AARP, yep, I am gonna be old. The thought of reaching 50 was a dream back in 2015 when I got AML, the odds of living 5 years from the AML I had is statistically nil, so there is my first becoming of being a statistical anomaly. Then 2018, being diagnosed with MDS. That is a death sentence. The type of MDS I have had a less than 10% chance of surviving 1 year, less than 4% chance of surviving 2 year, and now I am surviving year 3, the year of my 50th Birthday, and when I hit 3 year (May 17th, 2021) I will become a statistical anomaly again. Yep, they don’t track after 2 years. Cancer wise I am doing well. Better than any of my docs ever expected. Better than anyone ever expected. I am a firm believer in good thoughts and prayers.


I have officially lost my wallet again. Last night I saw it on my bookcase where I normally keep it. Today it wasn’t there. Meaning yesterday I picked it up and took it somewhere else, but I have no clue where I put it. So, it is somewhere in the house, just have no idea where.


Been doing a lot of reading lately. I read the Peace Talks-Harry Dresden book by Jim Butcher, was happy to have a Dresden book to read, was disappointed that I will have to wait for the next book for the end of this story. I have also read Books 1-7 of Monster Hunters International by Larry Correia, I really enjoyed 6 out of 7 books, but the 7th book was kind of a let down. I Just kept waiting for it to get good. Anyhow, I have a couple other books in the MHI world that I look forward to reading, but first I have a book that Teresa recommended, the First in the Mr. Brownstone series. (sorry, don’t remember title and too lazy to look it up right now). Anyhow, I am actually enjoying reading again, I haven’t really read in years. I thank Dave B for the MHI recommendation.


Hey, with the humidity being so low, my knees aren’t really hurting. So, tomorrow I am gonna cancel my orthopedics appointment on August 11th. Really don’t need any shots in my knees if its gonna be dry. It’s nice to know, however, that the pain is directly related to the humidity.


Well, I guess that is everything for now. This felt right. I hope this isn’t just a good day in the middle of a bunch of miserable days. I don’t think so. So please, dear readers, look forward to more sharing in the future. Here’s a video for my friends. Peace, Love, and Gummi Bears, see ya.
