It has occurred to me that we tend to simplify things. In this case we have the bad habit of assuming that oxygen saturation of the blood is sufficient to tell us how well oxygenated we are.Thing is, knowing how much oxygen our blood is carrying tells us nothing about how well our bodies are being supplied. And not just with oxygen.

It’s not just a matter of how much the blood is carrying, but of how much of that gets to it’s goal.

I know what I’m going to be doing New Years Eve, getting probed. No, not anal, urethral. My urologist w.ants a look at my bladder, and that means he gets to thread my wang.

He’ll also be putting a tube in my back so he can check out my kidneys. He finds what he expects I can expect surgery. But before that happens my Cardiologist has to approve the surgery because of my heart. That may require a heart procedure before they work on my kidneys. Looks like 2019 in going to be a busy year.

So get your ass checked out, you never know what they’ll find.

Today my feet swelled up. Something called an edema. So I get to take a medication, and the medication is called “Lasik”. So for the moment I’ll be taking Lasik once a day. Some people are just too precious for words.

This is a plea, it turns out I’m going to need help getting this IMac. Seeing as the keyboard and mouse are extra I’m going to need another $105 before I can get this That’s where you come in. When you make a donation make sure to label it “IMac Fund”. Any amount will do. I’ll keep you informed of any progress.

Progress Making

Saw my doctor today. In two weeks I’ll be seeing him again. Tomorrow I’ll be delivering a urine sample, and I suspect I couldn’t deliver today because I was dehydrated. Also got a referral to see a nephrologist and we’ll look into why my kidneys aren’t up to snuff.

It also looks like I’ll be getting a heart monitor, because my pulse finding skill stinks on dry ice. If you happen to know of one at a good price drop me a line.

And I’m still waiting on the apartment.

In Good News.

Just learned that the Alpha Project may cover part of my rent for October. It may also mean getting a payee, but we’ll see

In further news it looks like I’ll be getting an apartment. Most likely for $250 a month, which means I’ll have more money to spend. In mid October I should be moving to a place in Banker’s Hill. Park West is the name and it’s supported housing.

Still waiting for the procedures on those leg veins, but it does look like my meds are starting to work. I will ask Dr. Mohamedy about a personal heart monitor.

Getting my veins done will mean getting them raised above my heart when I sleep, so if you have any suggestions I’d like to hear them.

Before my final note please remember that you could still help. Just tap on the button below and enter your preferred amount, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 1,000, 10,000, whatever you wish.

Finally, is there any way we can get Vladimir Putin qualified for President of the United States. He is a vile, despicable manipulative bastard, but he is a competent vile, despicable, manipulative bastard.

And with that snark I bid you a good day.

I’m Feeling Better

Today I got a fan from the Alpha Project, and I’ve started work on the DJ outline. Where the latter is concerned I’ve got studying to, and it looks to have a lot of levels to it.

For instance, just in the chapter on encounters I’ll be covering subjects such

  1. What
  2. Why
  3. Where
  4. Personality
  5. Friendliness
  6. Hostility
  7. Need
  8. Desire

And other such things. In DJ encounters will not mean automatic aggression, but rather what both parties are looking for. As an example, a guide based on the Second World War the players may meet a group of friendly Gestapo Men and have trouble with hostile Marquis. Why? That is for them to find out. And for them to be cautious and not assume. Speculation is welcome.

As always donations are welcome, and should you have to be local a couple half gallons of milk—but not butter milk—would do me a world of good.

My fridge is too small for gallon sized jugs.

The Background

My troubles all begin when I was staying at The Bridge at 16th and Newton here in San Diego. I was ill and needed to sit down. The staff at The Bridge didn’t believe I was ill, and ended up throwing me out. A few days later I was at Paradise Valley Hospital in National City suffering from afib and a few other conditions. In the meantime I had lost the modem I had gotten from AT&T.

I could’ve asked for medical help at the Bridge, I didn’t. They could’ve asked if maybe there was something wrong with me, they didn’t. In as much as they held responsibility for my health and well being while I stayed at their facility, their actions and behaviors in my mind border on the criminal. But I haven’t the resources to bring charges against those responsible.

Now I have to make sure AT&T knows our agreement is terminated, and raise the money I’ll need to pay rent. Thus this plea.

Yep, I’m in Trouble

Found out who the problem is, which means I get to make sure my account with AT&T is closed so they won’t go digging into my bank account.

It also means that what with bank fees and all I’m going to be overdrawn by some $500 dollars, and that means I won’t be able to afford rent. And me just a few months from getting an apartment for something like $300 a month in rent instead of the $670 I pay now.

I’m 64. I have an irregular heart beat. I cost more on the street then I do with my own apartment, but to have an apartment—or even room—I need help with the money at the moment. That’s where you come in. One donation at $500 would do the trick. More at smaller amounts would do as well, but maybe I’ll get lucky. So donate what you can and keep an older fellow off the street.
