It's Friday

Sorry that I'm posting late today. My pain doctor put me back on Hydrocodone 5.0 so I'm moving really slow. Yeah, it's been a long time since I've been off them. But it does help take away my pain for now. It's just a matter of getting used to moving slower than usual. One good thing is that I feel a little better and I'm able to sleep a whole 6 to 8 hours at night. I forgot what it was like to sleep for more than 3 hours at a time. The bad thing is that it's an opiate and I was trying to get away from bad drugs like that. So, I'm back at square one again. Monday is my Echo with contrast appointment at the cardiologist. I haven't had any palpitation or fluttering episodes since Wednesday. I wonder if the opiate has calmed them down. I'm also not suffering from anxiety as bad as I did either. The palpitations could have been caused by my pain anxiety and lack of sleep. It is possible and yet it isn't. But I'll have to see what happens when I see the doctor on the 31st and we will talk of many things. Especially my pain anxiety.
Yesterday, I felt sick. I couldn't keep anything down and I was tired as fuck. I think I had another flare episode because I'm a little better today. Just really tired. The tired feeling could be from the opiates too. Even though I felt like shit I had laundry to do. Thursdays are always the start of laundry days which goes all the way into Saturday and sometimes Sunday. I do maybe a load or two depending on my energy level. There are days when I have zero energy and days when I have energy up the wazoo. Yesterday was a low energy day. Today is also slow but I am getting things done only in slow motion. I've been having really bad brain fog too. Forgetting what I was doing or going blank in the middle of a conversation. I hate when that happens. David has told me that sometimes I stop in the middle of telling him something and flat out walk away. I just stop functioning. Weird. 
Well, enough of this shit. Y'all have a magical day.

Trilogy of Books and a TV Show to Boot!

Last night I finished brushing up on The All Souls Trilogy. Yeah, that pain thingy had me up all night so since I wasn't doing anything I decided to finish reading through the trilogy's last book, The Book of Life. I usually don't like to review books that much but if y'all are watching the TV series on AMC on Sunday nights it goes by A Discovery of Witches, which is really based on the first book and introduces us to the world of witches, daemons, and vampires. The daemons have me laughing because of how they are portrayed in the books and that explains a lot about certain members of society today. Yeah, the strange and borderline crazy people just might be daemons. The witches are, well, witches blessed with different powers and the vampires are nothing of what you would expect but maybe a bit more. Also, as far as I know, the TV series has been okayed for a second season and if it all goes according to the books, Shadow of Night will be represented in the second season. 
The books are better because the show leaves out so much that should be available to the nonreaders. But I have to say the trilogy books are a rollicking ride through history and witchcraft and vampirism. I enjoyed reading them the first time when they first came out, I think it was 2008 or 09? I'm not sure and I'm too lazy to go check right now. But the books by Deborah Harkness are really very good and brushing through them again was fun because I forgot about certain things that happened in the storyline. Really, I loved the first and second books more than the last one. But the last book tied all the loose ends together and I hated when it all came to an end . . . but did it. Debrah left the ending on an opening note. So, there could be more books later, who knows. It's been a long time since she finished the series. So, I highly recommend getting her trilogy and reading them. You won't be sorry.

It's Monday

Well, Friday was fruitful. The Nurse Practitioner said I am due for the radiofrequency ablation(Rf.A.) on my lower back. Yeah! I was surprised. I nearly fell out of my chair that she was so on top of that shit. The last one was October of 2016, so, I'm way overdue. But one obstacle, I'll have to wait until after my appointment with my Cardiologist on the 31st to see where we stand with my palpitations and flutters. If everything is fine then it will be a go the first Monday of next month. So now, I have to wait until the drug test. They wanted to get a baseline to make sure I'm not on anything like pot or opiates. It's basically to cover their asses. When the test comes back negative, which it will, then my pain doctor will call my pharmacy and set up some pain killers to hold me over until I go for the Rf.A. But I'm glad that is out of the way. Now it's just a waiting game.
Sunday was fun. I was in the middle of trying to post my usual Religion in a Nutshell post and we lost cable. There was a loud bang and everything went offline. David found out some idiot hit a junction box down the street. So, I'm sorry for the late post but it was in gods hands . . . BWAAHAHAAAHAHAAAAHAHAHAAHAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAA!! oh, I think I wet myself. 
Anywho, we finally got back online around noon so that's why I was late posting. Other than that, it was a quiet uneventful weekend. Saturday I finally got David to help me clean the house and he helped out a great deal. I did the dusting, laundry, bathroom, and other cleaning and he swept and mopped the floors and vacuumed the rugs. When I completed the laundry, I decided to wash the puppy's blankets. They get so dirty when the dogs drag them around the house and outside when I'm not looking. So everything is ship-shape for now and I'm happy. Sunday I asked David not to get me anything for Mother's Day and he obliged. I did make his favorite stew with lots of fresh carrots, potatoes, and peas.
Okay, I think the Game of Thrones producers and directors are bent on destroying all the shows sets. Yeah, Westeros was leveled, on fire and Daeny(Daenerys, Mother of Dragons and all that shit) went fucking ape shit crazy with Drogon. So what could possibly be left? Tying up loose ends, maybe.
Last nights episode was nearly 2 hours long. Next Sunday is the last episode and it will be only 1 hour and 20 minutes from what I saw. I really do hope some of the characters that survive will go off into the sunset happy in the end. But someone has to do something about Daeny and Drogon. Like, give Drogon a Diprivan salt lick before they attack, oh, say maybe London.
Well, I have to go let the puppies inside. They have been outside all morning and they are crashed out on the back porch now. Y'all have a magical day.
