Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

Yep, I had my 2nd physiotherapy session in 3 weeks last night.  He basically gave me a few more stretches to add to the ones he gave me the first time.  Nothing too strenuous.  I was actually doing more of some of the older ones, & totally forgot about 2 older ones.  I moved the papers he gave me so I’d remember them!  They helped quite a bit this morning.  My sciatic nerve pain is slowly going away!

When I go to almost any treatment, even in the hospital, I try/tried to keep things up beat.  Kim takes the brunt of it.  Needles don’t bother me one bit.  When I have a blood test before a cat-scan & whoever is taking my blood, pulls out the needle, I ask Kim “Would you just hold me please?”  Doesn’t work at all, but the 3 of us are always laughing.

When I was in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center, I think there was a small opening on my chest by my collarbone?  There was a black goo coming out of it.  Kim got one of my nurses to check it out.  It was dead/rotten blood.  It didn’t hurt, I just thought it was cool.  When I said that, only I laughed.  I love it when a joke bombs & there’s an awkward silence!  Do I laugh, encourage him, is he done?

Life changed instantly for myself & a TON of other people.  What did Kim & I do?  With a lot of support we just addressed what we needed to!  It took me longer obviously.  I don’t necessarily like where I’m at personally.  At least I’m alive to work on things!

 

I fell asleep to “Taylor Swift” the album “1989”, woke up early listened to “Sum 41” the album

“13 Voices”, then “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”

I exercised to “Iommi” the album you can’t find anywhere which I bought the day it was released.  Each song has a different singer on it.  Phil Anselmo (Pantera), Ozzy, Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins), Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters), Henry Rollins (Black Flag), etc.

 

I get it.  Superhero movies & TV series are everywhere.  You’ve got “The Avengers” & all of the spinoff movies.  Now we have “The Justice League” along with other spinoffs.  “The X-men” movies, “Star Trek” movies, the revitalized “Star Wars” franchise with new spinoffs.  As for TV we got “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, “Gotham” & “Arrow”.  I like the majority of them, I totally see the reasoning of others who don’t like them.  It’s a lot of stuff people aren’t into, so your hands are tied if you want to watch a movie.  Whatever other movie you choose to see had better be mind-blowingly AWESOME!  Since you probably don’t have a variety of movies to choose from?

Kim’s not really a fan either.  She doesn’t mind the “Marvel”/”Avenger” movies though.  I’m all in for the “Marvel”, “Justice League”, & “Star Wars” movies.  Along with “Supergirl”, “Gotham”, & “The Flash” TV series.  I’m good but I know others that are not on the wagon for this stuff.

Am I a Star Wars fan?  BIGTIME!  Ever since I watched the original trilogy as a kid with my dad.  I’m not a huge Star Wars buff, but I know enough to watch any Star Wars movie & know which one it is.  I just like these movies & TV shows.  “Arrow”, “The X-men”, & “Star Trek” I’m not into though.

I’m OK.  I got VERY lucky & survived cancer.  Now all of this exercise I do is to try to survive surviving cancer.  Do I want to be in a wheelchair forever?  No.  Only I can fix that.  Everyone’s support & help is greatly appreciated!  I can’t just say to someone “Hey, would you take over my exercises today?”  When I was in a coma, or just not with it at all.  I would dream that I could just pass everything over to Kim for a day or 2.  How wrong was I?!?!  I’m sure if I had asked & it was possible she would have one so in a heartbeat.  Unfortunately that’s not how things work.  I still question a few things about my cancer such as “Why was it me?” & “Was God testing me, or was the Devil trying to kill me?”  I’m pretty sure both of those questions will remain unanswered for a very long time.

I did my exercises & burned off some of the thanksgiving supper.  I really didn’t want to do them, but I could hear my exercise mat judging me a few feet away.

I burn the candle from both ends.  My exercises Monday–Friday seem to be taking longer, which means after I finish one of these I do stuff around the house, then hit the couch closer to 4:00 pm.  Kim & I have supper, then watch TV like it’s going “out of style”.  I watched a marathon of TV Monday night.   Next week there’s another ½ hour sitcom, then the week after that I’ll check out another ½ hour sitcom.  Monday nights are packed with TV shows.  I had to just stop preordering music from iTunes as well.  It seems like the calendar flipped to October & everybody got together & said “Hey, let’s pack all of the TV shows into Monday & a butt load of music releases in before the end of the year”

It feels like sensory overload right now!  These are the shows I record/try to watch on a Monday.  Every evening Kim & I watch “Ellen” as soon as Kim walks through the door, I’ll watch “Jimmy Fallon” & “Conan” the next day if I have time or save them for later on in the week.

 

“Kevin can wait”

“The Big Bang Theory”

“Supergirl”

“Scorpion”

“Gotham”

And coming up……………..

“The Odd Couple”

“Man with a Plan”

I wish everything was spread out evenly over the course of the week.  It’s almost stressful Monday nights.  We record “Dancing with the Stars” for Kim as well.  Thank goodness every week day isn’t like this.

 

Come November 18th I’ll have to stop buying music.  I have “Highly Suspect” on preorder & no more preorders from here on out.  Kim said stop so I will.  No Metallica or Bruno Mars until Kim gives me the OK.  I’m assuming there will be more releases but I’ll listen to them on our Apple Music account aka Satellite Radio x 1000 along with Metallica & Bruno Mars.  I’m terrible with money.

 

I know for sure that “Into Eternity” has recorded an album.  They also signed with a different label which could be holding back the release since they finished it in the summer of 2015.

 

Metallica & Bruno Mars, & whatever else is released, I’ll have to wait for despite a November 18th release date.

I’m not American or political at all, but I’m worried that Trump has made it this far.  I don’t care what the polls say, this election is still a “50/50” race.

No, I’m good.  Why are there so many “reboots”/”remakes” of movies from the past.  I’m not going to like a remake if I didn’t like the story 30 years?  I saw the remake of “The Jungle Book”.  I didn’t like the cartoon movie as a kid & I did not enjoy the live remake of the same story I didn’t like as a child.  Now they’re doing a remake of “Aladdin”?  Don’t screw it up, actually do what you want with it, I’ll watch the Disney cartoon from the 1990s.

I won’t be doing my exercises until Tuesday, Canada’s Thanksgiving is on Monday.  I just need to do some stretching.  Kim went to work today for the first time this week.  She’s probably still a bit sore but she can stand up straight now.  My joints & muscles are sore from doing my exercises & trying to do everything else that Kim does “around here”.  That’s the only reason I’m taking it easy.  Kim was trying to be “Supergirl” before her back went out, & I was trying to be “Wonderboy” when her back went out?
