Still waiting but I got a pie and my family coming to visit

And with a cool temperature and a quasi-fond farewell to August, it being late August 31st, 2020. Highlights of the month included a Derecho (that I am sure the weather guys had to google what it was called) and some of the hottest and muggiest days of the year. It also supplied us with a lot of under-average temp days with little to no humidity… all combined a quasi-fond farewell.


Finally after years of begging, Teresa finally made me a fresh peach pie with a thanks to her sister Amy for the recipe. Well, I got to say it wasn’t a pretty pie, it sure was a tasty pie. And the best part is Teresa has improvements in mind for a second pie and had all the stuff needed to make an improved 2nd pie. I am a Happy Hectic.


Mom and Jim are coming to visit next Sunday thru Wednesday. They have decided not to drive (9 hours each way is insane), they are going to fly in and rent a car. It will be so good to actually see them for more than a few moments. I miss my family.


Still no results on the app for any of those weird blood tests. So the wait continues. The good news is that I shouldn’t need blood this week. But I still have to go in for labs every week until this is resolved. Next week, I will need blood and hopefully next week Thursday the results from all those whacky tests should be in. But eventually, once these results are in, we will be making a trip up to Mayo Clinic, just to chat (BLEH). Nothing seems to happen at Mayo without a chat visit before hand.


Because my email was down. And because Dr. Eastin didn’t text me, I missed my appointment with Dr. Eastin this Thursday which sucks. But what sucks more is they charged me 90 bucks for the missed appointment. Bah, if they would just open their office again, these technical problems will go away. Then they would have to deal with people not wanting to wear masks, which might be worse for them, but it wouldnt cost me 90 bucks.


I am still feeling really bad. Still get confused easily. Still totally ran down. All of which can be symptoms of hemoglobin going down. But a month+ of feeling like crap sucks. I just want Dr. Alkhateeb and Dr. Wehbe to figure out what to do for me. If it is B12 or some other vitamin, then give me the pills. If it is not that and something more serious, my donor said he’d still do a bone marrow donation, time to see if he is up for that. And if he wusses out and doesn’t want to do that donation either, then I think it’s time to find a new donor if that is possible. Just sitting around is driving my bonkers. And going crazy while you are feeling rotten to begin with, really sucks.
