So, typical Monday, I went to my mom's yesterday, did her laundry and shopping, and played a few games of Yahtzee. When I got home I got caught up on The Young & The Restless, then watched the latest episode of Last of Us. I was a little bit 'What the heck is this?' about that episode because it veered away from the creepiness, but in the end it was a very sweet episode. My neck pain eased up as the day went on. I took more ibuprofen before bed, and this morning it is about 99% gone. *phew*
I did get some slightly worrisome news last night. Sunday night my sister-in-law messaged that Brother1 had been to the ER that day with a high fever. They'd done a bunch of tests and taken blood for more tests, but didn't find anything initially and sent him back home. Yesterday (Monday) morning they got a call and were told to get him back to the doctor asap because further tests show he has sepsis (blood infection). So they headed back to the ER and he was promptly admitted to the hospital. My sister-in-law said they think it came from a recent sinus infection. This brother started chemo earlier this month, and that's on hold now. He has cancer but I can't remember what kind at the moment. He's had it for a while and went through chemo about six years ago. The doctors said it's a slow cancer, no cure but chemo can knock it back enough to usually go several years before needing chemo again. But anyway, I messaged him a bit last night and he seems to be in good enough spirits. This is the same brother who was in the hospital not long ago for RSV and pneumonia. I said to him last night, 'You just like the food there, don't you?' and he replied with, 'Yep, and the comfy bed.' lol
I think today will be another Ignore Adulting type day for me. I finally got set up with that free version of one of the games I play, and I'm really wanting to dive into that today. I'm also wanting to work on the new puzzle. I'm wanting to do a bunch of other more fun/less responsible things, like watch more TV, blog a ton of things I've been putting off, just all the lazy things. I have a lot of these types of days lately, I am aware. That's the problem with 'retirement' though, too much time and no accountability. (I always hesitate to call myself retired because I'm not of retirement age and my choosing to quit working situation was not some ideal dream situation.)
So I'll quit babbling here and try to decide which lazy thing to do first. And I'll enjoy the sun pouring through the window next to me, without having to worry about being out in that bitter cold.
Stay warm, folks!
