A little clarification was in order

It’s hot but it’s not that humid on this August 9th, 2020. My knees are not hurting as much as usual, which is a good thing. When I said it was hot, its only 91, so its not that bad for August in Central Iowa. It really looks like a really nice day outside, but I am still not going anywhere except medical appointments. Smart wife and stupid Covid-19 cause me to stay isolated. Been this way since March.


I spoke too soon (again) yesterday. I said I was feeling better, well today just knocked me on my butt and told me yesterday was a gimme day and today you are going to feel like someone beat up and left for dead. So much for feeling better, the good news is I do not have to go anywhere in the near future, so although I am tired of being sick, I can live with it.


A little misconception that my wife tells me that some of you have. I have NOT beaten cancer again, I have just managed to postpone the inevitable for a while. I know that I am looking at a couple more years tops, IF the chemo keeps working or my body starts making good cells again on my own. I MIGHT have to get a Bone Marrow Transplant (as opposed to the stem cell transplant I did have) sometime in the relatively nearish future (not looking like this year, but it might be the year after that). Normally my blood numbers are great and consistent, with this cold or whatever I got, my numbers have went way down. I see Dr. Wehbe in 11 days to find out what is up with that. But folks, I talk like this is a done deal and I am kicking cancers ass cuz if I don’t the reality is just too daunting.


We aren’t ending Jason’s Eberron game tonight. I am having problems with cohesive thoughts and I feel like crap. So, no Dungeons and Dragons tonight, probably not Tuesday or Thursday either. I hope to feel better by Tuesday, but that is only 2 nights away. And evenings are worse than days right now. Thursday is a more reasonable goal to feeling better in time for. So we shall see.


Teresa got into the new World of Warcraft Shadowlands Beta, I don’t think she has said more than 10 words to me or the dogs since she installed it. LOL. She actually got accepted into the Alpha, but didn’t have time to really help debug a game. To me it looks pretty much the same as every other expansion. YAWN. At least she has something she enjoys to occupy her for a while.


I am slowly eating all my gummies that I recently ordered from the Albanese Confectionary Company. I could have sworn I ordered more than I received, but I wasn’t charged any more so I guess it’s all good there. But I have decided to not eat them like they were going out of style, instead eating them slowly so I have more time to enjoy them.


Saturday, August 7th, 2021 will be the day I hold my STILL NOT DEAD YET Party. It will be held in the Region. Everyone will, of course, be invited. The first of those parties was supposed to happen yesterday, but Covid-19 put a big damper on throwing any kind of party. So, next year we are going to have a party.


I turned 50 a couple days ago and ya know what, I don’t feel any different. Just now on things that show my age, it says (50) instead of (49). I never though I would make 50 all things considered. It is kind of bizarre to even say I am half of a century old. A bunch of my friends turn 50 this year. I wonder if they’ll feel any difference?


That is all for today. See if I can pull Teresa away from WoW so we can have dinner. Peace Love and Gummi Bears my friends.

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.
