Ryen woke. His first action was to see if Ellie was awake. It had been a long week, and they had worked hard on the house and the garden. Both had agreed they would sleep in today and only do what had to be done. But Ryen’s internal clock was not going to let him sleep in.
Ryen slid out of bed, making sure not to wake Ellie, and tiptoed into the bathroom. When he came back out, Ryen didn’t want to risk sliding back into bed. He knew letting Ellie sleep while he was awake would get him in trouble. But she needed the rest. So, Ryen grabbed his drawing tablet off the dresser and went downstairs.
Sitting on the wooden loveseat on the porch, Ryen surveyed the place that was now home. The garden was too the left. In front of him, the sun was peaking of the horizon, starting to light their world. To the right were trees. Ryen could have drawn any of them or all of them. But

“We need to hurry,” I told Tantriss.
“What’s de rush?” Tantriss asked. When you’ve lived as long as Tantriss has, I don’t suppose there’s much you hurry for anymore. Though I’ll admit, there’s at least one activity she shows a distinct lack of patience toward.
“I want to get to the abbey before the Professors go home for the night.”
“Can’t we jus’ talk to dem tomorrow?” Tantriss asked, and I grimaced. “I’m not gonna kill you tonight, Michael.”
“Are you sure?” I asked in reply. I took Tantriss’ hesitation as “No, I’m not sure.” “I need you to do something for me.”
“What?” Tantriss said. Tantriss had thought the show

Bobby Edwards pulled the boy into the branch of the Brooklyn Library and put a hand over his mouth. The boy couldn’t have been over seven and was in a mild state of shock. Bobby waited until he was sure the coast was clear then said, “I’m going to remove my hand, don’t scream, okay?” The boy nodded.
Bobby removed his hand, and the boy whimpered. Then the boy turned, looked at Bobby, and pointed outside. “That was a monster,” the boy said, tears welling up in his eyes.
Bobby crouched down and hugged the child. “Yes, it was,” Bobby said.
Once, the monster had been a Batarian. And once, Bobby had thought the Batarians were about the worst monsters the Milky Way had to offer. But that was no longer the case. The Milky Way’s

I'm having one of my bi-annual chemo treatments on Tuesday (not cancer-related). My posting will likely be sporadic over the next week or so, and current projects will probably be on hold.

Assuming I follow the normal pattern with this treatment: It's a quick ;) five-to-six-hour process, and the Benadryl they give me will make me sleepy. So, even after I get out the treatment I'll be (more) incoherent (than usual). Sometime late Tuesday night or early Wednesday, the Benadryl will wear off and the steroids will dominate. This often means a 24 hour period or more without sleep. I may post during that time. I probably will not work on anything that needs me to be focused, however. Thursday and Friday are the days I will feel the full effect of the chemo (unfelt effects will last for months). That's the basic pattern, but I do see variations. Hopefully, by next weekend I can resume a normal routine. I should, via my tablet, be able to check messages and keep up with favorites.

Long story short, in 2015 after a routine blood test, I was put in the hospital for kidney failure. All the tests came back negative except one. Turns out I won the lottery and have a rare (1 in 50,000) autoimmune disease. My body produces antibodies that cause my white blood cells to attack my vascular system. This can happen almost anywhere in the body, but is most common in the kidneys (check), lungs (check), and skin (check). The only treatment is chemotherapy. Between 40 and 50% of people with the disease don't see a recurrence after the first treatment (which is four of the doses I will take on Tuesday, usually done as two double doses two-weeks apart). I was not part of that group. The antibody count will go down after I've had a treatment, but then comes back up. The disease is dormant, but that could change at any time (and did - when it attacked my lungs). So, I have to have these maintenance doses of the chemo to knock the antibody count back down again.

(PSA) So, if your doctor recommends a blood test, I suggest you get one. I did not have any physical symptoms when I had mine done. So don't think, "I feel okay; I don't need it." You're not likely to get what I have (FYI, they don't know what causes this - rates are too low to determine cause), and I hope you don't get something else. But if you do, it's better if they can find it early.

Halloween's just around the corner. Time for suitable music.

PS: Don't stare at the screen if you listen to this. It'll make your head spin. Hippies, man. ;)


There's a poll at DAZaholic's. It's running close now, so I'd encourage you to vote. I don't want to influence anyone, but being a lover of folk music I like trains (and I'm sure BornAngelAuthor would appreciate the votes).
This song seems like a good follow up to yesterday's journal. Perhaps my favorite John Gorka song.


I was going to post this yesterday, then I posted The Medicine instead (give priority to the title track, I guess). Like The Medicine, this will sound better with the volume just below ear-damaging levels. :)


A little more of a rocker than the folk stuff I generally share (so if you listen, crank it up).
