Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Tuesday morning.

I'm still feeling like crap, and am coughing and hacking away. There's been a bit of blood coming up so, I felt justified yesterday in calling the doctor's office and making an appointment. I'll be seeing the doctor this afternoon, around 2 pm, so I hope that something can be done about this.

In the meantime, I'm going to work and just taking it easy otherwise. Too much physical activity makes the coughing go insane and through the roof, so I'm taking it relatively easy. I'm also not that hungry, so just eating regular meals and not too much at that, and not really snacking at all.

I'm working on several things gaming-wise, none of which I intend to post up about here at the moment, and am just trying to keep things stress-free and relatively calm.

That's all.

Doctor's Diagnosis

Got back from the doctor's appointment about 20 minutes ago.

The news is not good.

I've got a severe case of bronchitis, and he didn't even need to send me for an x-ray to diagnose it. He could hear the "crackling" in my lungs when he listened to my chest, but just to be sure he had me hack up a blob of sputum (not difficult due to all the coughing I'm doing) and will send it to the lab.

In the meantime, the doctor proscribed some Biaxin for me, which I've picked up from the drugstore. He suggested that I take a couple of days at work, and just rest up at home, and also said that I'd have to forego the flu shot until I've gotten over this bug.

Blah.

Sunday Afternoon Game Report - Chill 3rd Edition Session 9

Sunday afternoon, the Sunday gaming group continued to play the Chill 3rd Edition RPG campaign they are involved in, starting off a brand new adventure/case. Here are the game session notes. You can read about the previous game session in this journal entry. This post is quite long, so I've put it behind a cut so that folks who don't want to read any detailed rpg posts don't have to.

Sunday afternoon's game session of the Chill 3rd Edition was a mixed bag. On the one hand, there was Tammy's play and her really getting in to what was going on at the Fowlkes estate, and then there was spross who hemmed, "umm"ed, and indecisively played his way into a corner and did almost nothing for most of the game session. The afternoon was pretty much saved by the final hour of play or so, when the significance of certain stuff became apparent. My state of mind (due to the now-known-to-be bronchitis I'm suffering from) made me muck up stuff, using snakes instead of-- no, I'm not giving it away, go read the blog entry above if you want to know!-- and nearly screwing up the plot that way. I'm just glad that I was able to run a cohesive storyline (at least I hope it is! but Tammy will tell me if it's not, I'm sure!), and had a good afternoon where I could forget my own problems for a while. Though the frustration with spross reached a boiling point at one part of the afternoon.

Overall, I thought it was a decent session of the Sunday Chill 3rd Edition campaign, saved only by the last hour or so, though most of the time spent at the Fowlkes mansion game play was enjoyable enough. I think I'm looking forward to the next game session, hopefully on Sunday.
