Sleeping thru just another day

Yep, the high today is only 79 gorgeous degrees, very surprising for Sunday, August 2nd, 2020. There is a slight breeze outside which makes it even cooler. It’s such a nice turn on the weather from what we normally get. The weather man says the average temperature for this date is 85. I don’t remember any early August being that reasonable, the must average for the date’s temperature to the beginning of recorded temps. Oh well, it is a nice Sunday, and I have slept thru most of it.


I slept till 3:30pm for all intents and purposes. I went to bed at 11pm, which calculates out to 15 1/2 hours straight sleeping. I am going to try not to nap today. Tomorrow I have to get up.


Tomorrow starts chemo again. They wouldn’t give me chemo last week cuz I was too sick, this week I feel like a million of sleepy bucks. So chemo at 1pm tomorrow and at 11am on Tuesday and Wednesday. When they have to schedule the chemo less than 2 weeks away you get what you get as far as scheduling goes. I will get up and go and be so sleepy while there, but I won’t sleep cuz there will be too many people there and the second reason is I snore loudly.


Tonight we play in Jason’s Eberron game. That is if I wake up in the next 2 hours. Anyway, I am looking forward to playing these last several adventures that Jason has planned for us. His Eberron game has been fun, I really wish that my Seasonal Affective Disorder hadn’t wiped me out from the beginning of the game. SAD sucks. Well, I should be there for the end of Eberron and the start of Spelljammer.


In about a month and a half Seasonal Affective Disorder will hit me hard. It used to hit mid-winter, but since my transplant, it has hit in the fall (when it hits so many people, when its supposed to hit). Mid-to late September, when everyone is oohing and ahhing over the pretty changing leave, my mood goes down into the dumps. I am thankful for Dr. Eastin, he is going to keep me straight this year. He says he can do it and I believe him. But we really shall see if he is there when my mood takes a downward spiral. And he gives me the right med to make me better. Then he will truly be my hero.


Feared by Hell has finally gotten good. It took it 47% of the book to get there, but I am enjoying it now. I like all the characters, even the main guy which I didn’t like earlier in the book. And the book has a good rhythm to it. So, hopefully I will finish it off tomorrow. And move on to something else. Funny though Feared by Hell said the book takes 3 1/2 hours to read and I am on day 4 lol.


Waiting for the mail from AARP, my mom signed me up for 5 years. I was all wishful thinking on her part. But at least I will get it for however long I continue to live. I went thru the benefits of being in AARP and it seems somewhat useful to us. I lived this long, thru all the crap I have lived thru, it is about time that someone gives me something for surviving this long. So, mom ordered my membership last week, and they will ship it around my 50th birthday.


Speaking of my 50th birthday, it is in 4 days (including today). I am just surprised that I have lived this long. I have nearly died so many times and still I am alive to reach 50. I am not only alive but I am kind of thriving. Heh, I also proving that Dr. Alkhateeb doesn’t know what to do with me. I am an anomaly. By all rights I should be dead and he has no idea why I am not. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, I don’t mind him not knowing what to do and him just guessing at this point. As long as I get the option to come off chemo in November, all is well. I still haven’t decided if I am coming off chemo or not. I want to, but I am afraid. Oh well, I still have a few months to make the decision. It’s all good.


Between Dr. Alkhateeb and Dr. Wehbe, I feel I am in incredibly good hands. Both docs are working hard at keeping me alive. Dr. Wehbe’s office is officially miffed at Dr. Alkhateeb for not sharing any information. Heh, I got the feeling that Dr. Alkhateeb never shares information, but that is ok. He tells me and I relay the information. This has worked out so well so far. I do wish the doc’s would talk. But for now, it’s all good.


Well folks, I guess this it is for today. Peace, Love and Gummi Bears for all. I’ll go grab a video and name this blog. For that is what I do.
