Mental Health break had to share

Welcome to my blog for November 24, 2020. Yesterday there was snow, today there was rain to wash away the snow. Warmed up a bit too. Not a whole lot but enough for it to be rain and not snow.

Last Friday I got a PICC Line installed. So, no more IVs for at least 6 weeks, bruises are already starting to fade. Except for the petechial bruising I got last Sunday. UGLY. But it will go away too. They hooked me up with 2 bags of platelets on Monday. With platelets in tow, bruising should be minimal.

Weird stuff is happening as far as my transplant is going. Chemo is causing me to be constipated and bloat. I never did shrink back to normal from the GoLyghtly incident. And now that I have had second round of this chemo, my stomach is growing and hardening. I want off this chemo, but I am not sure if there is an alternative.

Anyhow, the more disturbing thing going on, is that I reverted back to 0+ from A+. I am back to where I started from. All I can think of in my head is that I did have a graft failure when Dr. Wehbe called it. And Dr. Alkhateeb intentionally lied to us. That would suck.

What does all this mean? I do not know at this time. But neither issue is good news.

Teresa and I are not having turkey and such for thanksgiving. Nope, not going to happen. We are having Sweet and Sour pork. Yummy. We had thanksgiving dinner when my mom was here. It was nice. Now it’s time to splatter tradition and have Chinese 🙂

I miss playing Dungeons and Dragons, but I can’t right now. Can’t sit still for multiple hours. We were set to finish Jason’s Eberron campaign, but Jason got sick. It happens. I still hope we can finish it.

Playing Skyrim: Special Edition and a bit of Civ4 Warlords. If you have followed my blog for any time, you know these 2 games are my fall back when I got nothing else going on. Having mental problems getting into either game very far.

We ordered a sleepnumber bed, hoping the advertisements for it are true. It gets delivered on the 9th. I find out if I am approved for my electric wheelchair on the 1st. Pentamidine scheduled for the 30th. Lab visits every Monday and Thursday from here on out. Blood or Platelets usually to follow same day or next after the labs. Shrink appointment on the 7th. Staying busy, but still bored.

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.
