Woke up this morning, Good Friday, feeling somewhat tired, and somewhat sick. I tossed and turned most of the night, my feet hurting me after yesterday’s Footcare session/appointment. On top of that, I’m coughing again with a bit of chest pain. Not sure whether the warmer weather has contributed to that, or I’m just not over the illness/bug that I seem to have had forever now.

Since today is Easter Friday, I am not obliged to work today. That said, given that I’ve been off for a while due to illness, other than working at home for most of last week, I’ve (wisely) decided to work today, and it’s been a quiet day at the office, as expected, with only a handful of people in the office (including Donna). That said, I will be taking Monday off, and have a long weekend so to speak. In the meantime, I plan to take it easy for the rest of the day after I leave the office, and will be running the Coriolis – The Third Horizon this evening with my Friday gaming group, as per usual on Easter Friday. I may spend a bit of time this afternoon going over some old Atomic Highway gaming stuff; see how I feel when I get home from the office.

Right now, however, I’m going to make myself a cup of good, hot tea.

After some due consideration today, gaming for this evening is not going to happen.

I’m still ill with whatever this bug is that I have, and while I do go through days where I feel better and have lots more energy, today is not one of them. I was looking forward to running a session of Coriolis – The Third Horizon this evening, but that just can’t happen tonight because of how I’m feeling and because I’ve had coughing jags all day long.

So I’m going to spend the evening taking it easy, perhaps watching some tv, DVDs or reading. And just try to recover some strength and allow my body to heal some more.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to run the game next Friday night. ::fingers crossed::

Once again, gaming for this afternoon is not going to happen.

I am still pretty ill, with whatever bug this is that I’ve not been able to shake. While I’m somewhat functional, I just don’t have the energy to run a game this afternoon. Not to mention that talking makes the coughing all that much worse.

So due to my illness we will not be gaming this afternoon. I was looking forward to running Coriolis – The Third Horizon this afternoon, but that just can’t *cough, cough, cough* happen today.

I’m going to sit on the couch upstairs, and relax and rest. Maybe get a little sleep. *cough, cough*

Hopefully, I’ll be able to run the game next Sunday afternoon. ::fingers crossed::

Once again, gaming for this evening is not going to happen.

First of all, it’s snowing outside and pretty messy. Kathy did call to let me know that they might not be able to make it out this evening. Secondly, whatever this bug is, I am definitely as sick as can be. Barely functional, if I’m even that.

So due to my illness, and the weather (I guess), we will not be gaming this evening. I was looking forward to running Coriolis – The Third Horizon this evening, but that just can’t *cough, cough, cough* happen tonight.

I’m going back to bed now. Hopefully to get some sleep and much needed rest. And maybe the coughing will stop for a while.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to run the game next Friday night. ::fingers crossed::

Sick at Home March 27, 2017

Definitely feeling ill today.

Woke up around 3:11 am with a case of mild acid reflux. The stuff must have started causing problems with my air passages, because when I woke up again at 5:45 am, I was hacking and coughing away, and was having definite problems breathing.

At 7:00 am, I called the office and told them that I wasn’t coming in to work for the day. Donna told me she barely recognised my voice, so that wasn’t a good sign.

Suffice to say, I’ve got left shoulder pain, arm pain, neck pain, and head pain. I’m hacking away, and there’s lots of discoloured phlegm, my chest hurts something fierce, and I’m feverish. Taking the rest of the day off, and going to try and sleep and relax.

Good thing I’ve got a doctor’s appointment for tomorrow.

Back to bed. Going to take some Ricola throat drops, and have a cup of tea. Then bed.

Home From the Lab March 21, 2017

Just got back from the Dynacare lab.

Still feel ill with whatever bug I’ve currently got going, and am still having trouble with the seriously pained shoulder.

In preparation for my doctor’s appointment next Tuesday (the 28th), I’ve gone and had the tests done that the doctor wanted. They did the various tests, taking quite a bit of blood and all, and now I just have to wait until the appointment next week.

In the meantime, I’m going to lie down and take a nap. After I ingest a bit of protein (not sure what I’m going to have).

Back From the Diabetes Centre March 17, 2017

Got home about 20 minutes ago from my appointment with the diabetic nurse at the Riverside Hospital Diabetes Centre.

The news is more positive than it is bad, but I don’t know how much I got out of the appointment.

I got to the hospital for my 1:00 pm appointment around 10 to the hour, but ended up sitting and waiting for over 20 minutes before I got to see the diabetic nurse. That did not help my mood at all. Suffice it to say we talked about a lot of stuff pertaining to how I’m doing with the diabetes and all, and came to several conclusions. I’m going to try some white bread and regular grains again, rather than the whole wheat, and I’m going to alter the time I have my snack every day somewhat. Since they are discontinuing my Breeze2 diabetes glucose monitoring meter, I got a couple of meters through the Centre that I’ll try and see how they work for me. (Not going to say anything else about that for now.) Finally, I’m going to adjust the insulin dose up somewhat, as my blood sugar readings are a bit high at one point in the day. So we’ll see how that goes as well.

Anyway, going to take it easy for half an hour, as I’ve got gaming this evening, and I just need a bit of downtime for the moment.

It’s Thursday in the Ottawa valley. The temperature has dropped, though not as low as it’s going to get over the weekend, but the sun is out so hopefully the day will feel warmer than it has so far.

Promises to be a busy day. After work, I’ve got to go for my Footcare appointment, then to the hospital for a PSA blood test, and finally for a haircut. Then I’ll think about lunch.

Gods, but I feel tired already!

An MRI Kind of Friday March 3, 2017

Hadn’t talked about it on the blog, but I was scheduled to have an MRI this morning at 9:00 am.

Well, the MRI is done, and I’m home. I had a couple of other tests that included some dye and a bit of a sedative, which has made me a little sick to the stomach (on top of still recovering from the antibiotic), so I got home about 11:10, and have been lying down and just taking it easy for a bit.

Feeling somewhat better now, so checking out some e-mail and taking care of a couple of other things.

I’m supposed to game with the Friday night group, so hopefully I’ll feel better in a few hours.

Up first for now, a cup of (peppermint) tea. 🙂
