Bone Density Tests, and Gaming

Got home around 3:20 pm this afternoon, after having the bone density tests.

I was fortunate that they chose not to do a bone biopsy at this time, although they did give me a light sedative in case they needed to do so. That said, I had a battery of blood tests that involved the taking of fourteen (14!) vials of blood. Almost as many as the very first tests I had to determine whether I had diabetes way back when. That said, better the blood tests than the bone biopsy.

Anyway, when I got home I went to bed for a bit and had a good nap. I felt bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when I woke up around 4:30 pm or so, and made a call to Kathy and Tom to let them know that gaming is on for tonight.

Looking forward to starting the Broken Rooms game campaign this evening. Will blog about this tomorrow.

Friday Morning Thoughts

Another Friday morning in the Ottawa valley. Quite comfortable this morning, on the way to work, but it should be more humid and a bit warmer by the time I leave the office today.

This is going to be either a very long day or a very strange day, depending.

I'll be leaving the office today around 11:30 pm, as I have an appointment at the Ottawa General Hospital to have a bone density test done, as well as have some bloodwork specific to osteo stuff. There's a possibility that I will also have a bone biopsy done as well, and if so, I might not be gaming this evening with the Friday night gaming group.

In the meantime, I am consoled by the fact that Medical Week From Hell is just about over with. Thank Goddess.

Thoughts for a Monday

A very difficult weekend, as folks can imagine, given my most recent blog post.

I had a pretty good weekend for the most part, computer problems not withstanding, as I ran both the Friday and Sunday sessions of the Abney Park's Airship Pirates roleplaying game, and both groups had a pretty good time. For me, the two games served as excellent distractions from the other stuff that was going on, and both games were a lot of fun as mentioned, so that helped. Will be blogging about the game(s) when I have the chance this week.

Not even going to talk about the computer problems and all that stuff, since there's not much to say. I've got a basic computer system on my hands here at home, and will be buying myself another computer sometime in the very near future.

Today was a day for medical stuff, as I set up my appointment for the flu shot at the doctor's office next week, and also went for a bone scan. Not a pleasant experience by any stretch of the imagination, but it's done and over with, and so just have to wait for the results. Other than footcare appointment next week, no more doctors for a bit (other than a regular doctor's appointment the second or third week of November.

In the meantime, going to make some supper now and relax tonight with episodes of Dancing with the Stars and Castle. And I'm taping Terra Nova as per usual.
