Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night gaming group.

It has been some time since the Wednesday night gamers have played an rpg game session, so I’m rather pleased that the players will be playing a game this evening. With any luck at all, I’ll be trying to wrap up the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game scenario that the players are currently involved with.

Still not feeling overly healthy myself, and the cough is very much present, but the players want to play (despite my illness) so how could I say no?

In any event, I need to grab some supper from upstairs and get to it.

Have a good evening, folks.

Today promises to be a very long day.

I did not sleep well last night. Between the bouts of coughing that I had in the late evening and that led to some bad diarrhea, as well as the sheer agonypain that my left shoulder/arm/neck/back are currently suffering, sleep did not come easy and when it did come, tossing and turning were the best that I managed to have.

To make the day even longer for this Monday, I have my appointment at the Montfort Hospital this evening for an MRI at 9:30 pm. Not sure how I’m going to get there yet, since my left arm and shoulder are so bad that I can’t use the arm for much of anything these days.

Ah, well… one step during the day at a time.

Getting Ready for Sunday Afternoon Gaming… Sort of October 29, 2017

I’m in the process of getting ready for gaming with the Sunday group.

Well, sort of…

SteveR is coming over, ostensibly to work on his second The Dark Eye character, but I’ll also be working with Tammy on the telephone to go through her equipment for her character for the game and to talk to her about her witch characters alchemy, curses, and spells in detail.

This will all happen if my voice decides to hold out. This is all happening while I’ve still got whatever infection I have; I’m still hacking away, and the antibiotic that I’m on will be finished with tonight’s supper.

So we’ll see how things work out this afternoon.

In the meantime, I’ve got figure out what I want to eat for lunch today.

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming October 27, 2017

It’s Friday!

That means it’s time for another Friday night gaming session. So, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night group.

I’ve still got my lovely head cold/flu, but it’s eased off somewhat though I’ve still got the cough (and stuff nose at times). The Friday night group are doing all right, so I’ll be running the game tonight. The Friday night gamers will be continuing on with The Dark Eye RPG this evening.

I’m looking forward to tonight’s session, though I hope the meds I’m taking for the cold/flu/whatever don’t make me overly “creative” tonight.

In the meantime, supper (of some form) needs to be made, and eaten. Then gaming.

Have a good night, folks.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Cancelled October 22, 2017

It’s Sunday morning.

That means it’s time for Sunday’s gaming session. Except that’s not going to happen today. Tammy is working on-call duties for the week (which ends today), so that means she’s unavailable for gaming. While SteveR doesn’t want to play without her, he’ll likely come over as he wants to create a second The Dark Eye RPG character, just in case his Hunter character dies.

This means I won’t be starting the The Dark Eye Sunday campaign today, which saddens me somewhat. That said, I’m still fighting the bronchitis that I’ve got, so perhaps this is a good thing.

Here’s hoping I can game with them next Sunday.

Friday Evening Gaming Session Cancelled October 20, 2017

‘Tis Friday, and that means it’s time for another Friday night gaming session.

Well, it would normally be a Friday night gaming session, but I’m coughing away so badly (see the earlier post today, about this) that there’s no way I can possibly game this evening. Heck, it’s hurting to breathe somewhat as well.

This means that tonight’s game session of The Dark Eye RPG is off for tonight. I was really hoping to be able to run tonight’s game session, but such is not to be.

Here’s hoping that the antibiotic that I’ve started today will allow me to run the game next week, but one day at a time.

A Long (Sick) Day October 20, 2017

Yesterday was one heck of a day.

As noted in yesterday’s blog entry, I had made a doctor’s appointment since my illness has gone on too long and the coughing has gotten much worse.

The appointment was originally scheduled for 4:00 pm, but as I was eating lunch the doctor’s receptionist called, and said that I could come in any time, as the office wasn’t too busy for the day. Mom decided to come with me, since she wanted me to take her grocery shopping afterwards, so…

The doctor and I talked and then he examined me. The diagnosis was a severe case of bronchitis, since he could hear the crackling in my lungs, and so he put me on a dose of antibiotic, the Biaxin stuff, for ten (10) days and said that I should get a bit of rest, if possible. He also told me that when I was well again, I needed to come in and have both the flu shot and the pneumonia shot, as the “season” was going to be brutal for both.

From the doctor’s office, I drove over to the nearest First Choice Haircutters, and finally got a haircut. I hadn’t been for a haircut since before I left for GenCon back in August, so it had been a while and I was somewhat shaggy. When I left the salon, I felt like I might have lost 3 lbs. or so. Might have, given that the stylist cut off almost 2 inches (!!) of my hair!

From there, it was over to the local Independent Grocery, where I would take in the antibotic prescription to the pharmacy and also help mom do the grocery shopping. Suffice to say, I was there for almost 1.5 hours (as my mom’s getting up there in years, and she’s somewhat…slow), but picked up a good $60 worth of groceries for myself. I took mom back to her place, and helped her unload the groceries she’d bought, and then we went back to my place and unloaded those groceries, and made supper for her.

By the time I’d taken mom home, and then returned from the house after supper, it was close to 10:00 pm.

I was knackered. And coughing away like hell.

But life goes on, right?

Finally Caved In (Doctor Appointment) October 19, 2017

Well, I’ve caved in.

I’ve had this bug – either a major bad cold or perhaps a bad case of bronchitis now – for around 3 or 4 weeks (I can’t really remember, to be honest). It’s not the flu, because even though I’ve been pretty warm/sweaty/whatever you want to call it or cold at times, I’ve not been running a fever.

But anyway, as I was saying, it’s been going on for a while, and I’m not really feeling better (I may be coughing worse), so… I’ve caved in today, and called the doctor’s office. I’ve got an appointment for 4:00 pm this afternoon, so we’ll see what he does and what he decides on for treatment based on that.

In the meantime, I’m just going to take a shower and relax. *cough, cough*

Wednesday Night Gaming Cancelled October 18, 2017

Spoke to the Wednesday night gamers earlier, and sad news.

Gaming for this evening has been cancelled. Two of my four players are (still) down with illness (possibly the flu, but maybe just a bad cold). The two other players decided that they didn’t want to play without the missing players. That said, their GM still isn’t feeling all that good at the moment, either.

I was looking forward to gaming this evening with the Wednesday night crew, as I was thinking we might bring the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game to a conclusion for now, but I guess such is not to be once more.

I’m in the process of getting ready for gaming with the Sunday group.

I didn’t wake up until about 15 minutes ago, and that only because mom called to see how I’m doing today. I still have this nasty head cold/flu thing going on, but since my voice is relatively intact I’ve decided to game today and both SteveR and Tammy are willing (since the latter will be on-call for work again next week).

The players will hopefully wrap up their The Dark Eye RPG character creation, and we’ll see if we get to do some samples of combat and the like today.

Anyway, gotta get going and shower, and see what else I have to do in the next short while.
