My blood stats are dropping rapidly

Today has been one beautiful day, especially since its August 3rd, 2020, the high was only 77 degrees. Amazing weather right now. Seriously, it feels like April outside right now, but all good things must come to an end, temps and humidity into the 90s are expected by next week Saturday. Ah well, at least I get to go out during the nice weather for 2 more days.


My blood stats are in the crapper and I don’t know why. My Hemoglobin which has been 12.5-12.7 since January was only 10.5 today. My platelets down to from 259 to 218. Bleh, No wonder I feel like crap and super tired worse than normal. The problem I see here is the drop happened in less than 4 weeks. This could just be anomalous or it could be something very VERY serious. I have pleas out to both of my cancer docs for answers. I’m worried, really. The PA I saw today (didn’t catch his name) said it’s nothing to worry about. I said “it’s not happening to you”. And he agreed. But it does explain why I have been so tired and why I have mentally been confused. Less blood to flow thru the brain. Yeah, no wonder I feel crappy.


I bailed on playing in Jason’s Eberron game last night. I felt to rotten and my mind had problems focusing (see above). I know I let the other players down, and Jason too for that matter. It was to be the final game of the Eberron campaign. Hopefully I will feel better next Sunday, but I am not counting on it. I can’t play if I can’t think straight.


I told the players of Feise that I would be running on Tuesday night, but I am just not sure. I am thinking it’s probably better if I don’t. I have big plans for Feise but I wouldn’t able to truly implement them with a mind unable to focus. So, after I get done writing this blog, I will jump on Discord and tell them what is going on.


Chronicles is off this week, I had planned that for a long time cuz Thursday is my Birthday. I want to get back to it though, I have big plans for Chronicles too.


My 50th Birthday is probably not going to be that exciting. There is nothing that I want for my birthday. Dinner has already been decided, Texas Roadhouse, Teresa is going to go pick it up. I don’t want a cake. Yeah, I am going to have a pretty boring birthday for it being my 50th. With a special thank you to Covid-19 making it impossible to go out and do much of anything.


August 8th was supposed to be my STILL AINT DEAD YET party, but again thanks to Covid-19, it’s not going to happen. So I have to survive another year so I can have my party. Heh, with my mom and brother’s plan to move back to the region next summer, I at least will have a place to host next year’s official STILL AIN’T DEAD YET party on August 7th, 2021.


Well, I am done sharing for today. Having problems thinking about what to talk about, so I am finished for now. I’ll go grab a video and then slap a title on this entry.
