First run on a No-Nap Day (B)

Filed under: — brendan @ 19:25 GMT

While I’m feeling fairly tired now, I’m amazed I was able to stay up all day and not crash out on Elana at some point.  Lots of chatting and hacking trying to get my laptop working and card-playing.  Bonus Good Day points.

I got to enjoy one of the treats sent by our friend Oona, based on the stuff her dad (?) used when he was undergoing Chemo.  Today’s choice ws a Hershey’s Cookies & CReam (?) cookie.  Oh yum.  I snacked on it a two different times during the day, trying to drag it out for as long as ossible.

The laptop is up and working again, this time more directly instead of trying to do a clever link through home.  (In part because if something happened with that link, it’d take too much effort for me to try to focus on the logs and config files and such here to try to fix it.)

Made it through all of that without getting drowsy (I think?).

Health Level OK

Body feels good, the current bag o’ blood is going to be done soon, with a second to follow hopefully.  My earl feel a tittle warm,matcbi me worry a bout a  fever, but it’ll all matter only when the nurse comes in and actually measures my temp.

Points for Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm, which must have had some small role in the remarkable improvement of the condition of my lips.  They were so try that finall parts of the dry skin were separating, making it awkward to eat.  But now, a day or os later, thy feel relatively soft and much more comfortable.

Same goes for a product I’ve never heard of before nowe: bioXtra moisturizing oral gel.  It makes your insanetly-dry mouth remousturuzie and feel much better using just their gel, not water.  Inner cheeks, gums, and the rest of the inside of the mouth feels betetewr within 5 minutes of appplying this stuff.  You guys out theree will particularly love the rectangular pink sponges on sticks which you use to roll around inside your mouth to appply the stuff.  It’s only in pink.  Makes me think I’m supposed to try to fix my facial makeup before going into the studio or something.  (Which itself tells you how little I know about such things.)

How’s the human bladder able to retain the volume of liquid which ends up coming out of us?!  I’ts amazing—even in a 4 year-old, muchless a 40 year-old.  It’s like the ultimate-expandable storage unit of some kind.  We need this model for our shopping bags.

I’ve verified that the Sony Walkman gets a nice clear signal for Radio Nova (@radionova100 / nova.ie, which will stream to anywhere in the world).  That’s so awesome, since it means in times when listening to music of any kind wouldn’t zone me out into a nap, I get to listen to and enjoy great tunes.  Hmm….of course, using the same as a way to help me into a nap sounds like a reasonable approach, too.

“Which Way Do You Turn It Off?”

Washing my hands this eve at a sign in where the hallway, as is goes by, opens up no the three beds where mine’s located, I managed to forget which direction to push the tap and whoooosh soaked my shirt.  D’oh.  I got one of the clean dry ones E had brought today, and it was only while putting it on that I heard the nurnse come up the hallway and say, “whay happened?”  I’ve no idea why, but my mind believeed I’d caught all of the spattereed water involved.  No, silly, there’s water on the floor, too.  THe tyellow “Caution Wet Floor” hazard will make sure others don’t get slippped up by my own ineptitude.  D’oh.  I know accidents happen, but as anyone who knows me, I’m the last person willing to accept that it’s to have made one. 😉


My target is 9pm to finally give in and go to sleep.  Pity I can’t lay bets on myself. 🙂

No change in eyes, but wanted to try this… am curious what it’d take for a few sentences.

Woke at 6 after decent enough to sleep. Had a chat with nice Nurse S about carbonated vs still water. I told her I really can’t drink the carbonated any more cuz it leaves mouth dry and doesn’t come close to quenching my thirst. I’m to ask the doctors if the Nash’s Still is an ok replacement for the Nash’s Sparkling.

Enjoyed watching Rugby last night. I could identity some of the players by just looling, which was encouraging. Even saw the ball—a couple of times. Heh. But a little distraction is nice —or more to the point, something to do Pruett eyes, a bit, was cool.

Morning blood draws are done, as well as Joe Random antibiotic….there are so many it’s hard to keep track. Tho I bet there’s a list in the blog somewhere.

Taking breaks between pieces of writing. (I also expect some odd word substitution by android typing software which I won’t catch.)

As a new parent with the birth of our youngest, I got into the habit of cutting my own food up into small portions. This way I could eat my food with one hand while feeding him his own. To this day, I still cut mine up before eating —breeder or not. So cutting up my porridge into even hunks cracked me. Up this morning. So little point, yet the habit persists.

The St Anne’s Ward is divided into two parts which make up the third floor. The center area where the elevators are also has a big open rectangular room off of it. Crammed along the solid walls are nearly 20 chairs of different kinds. The third wall is mad up of institution-store windows showing you a panoramic view of… well, other hospital buildings. Not a holiday spot. 🙂

In front of the windows are two big TVs. When I first saw this, I figured it may be how they all watch a Rugby match togwther. Bzzt. The TVs are reportedly dead. If my eyes get better early enough, I still like my original idea of folks being able to watch something in here.

Typing this with my phone kinda worked, but maybe I’ll try my laptop next time.
