I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, followed by “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June”, & finally “Phillip Phillips” the album “Behind the Light”

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

The extent of my week has been rather focused on my sciatic nerve.  I saw the chiropractor the other day and a message therapist Thursday evening.  It’s not perfect but it’s MUCH better than it was!  My chiropractor got the muscle to move quite a bit & at my message therapy appointment Thursday, she could tell.

It’s not perfect but more of a “Hope this can tide you over until the cortisone shot”?  It is really nice to have such little pain in my leg for the time being!  It still could be 5 weeks or so until an appointment can be made for my MRI.

 

“There’s no such thing as a stupid question”.  I’ve heard that many times over my 37 years & it’s always been true.  Never be afraid to ask anyone anything.  Obviously I need help from time to time.  Here’s an example; we were out for dinner a few weeks ago.  I had to use the washroom before we left the restaurant.  I asked where it was & I was on my way.  I got to the washroom & because I am still quite weak, the door felt as though it was 100lbs.  A waitress was walking by so I asked if she could help me with the door.  No problem!  Sure she’s half the size of me, but much stronger than I.

When I was discharged from the WRC, I could barely lift one of our dinner plates, now I lift 2 or 3 at a time when I’m emptying the dishwasher.  Things are getting back to “normal”.  The only thing is that “normal” looks a bit different than it used to.  There’s no point in me getting frustrated or angry about my situation.  What good will that do anyone?

After so much time with certain doctors I realized something.  I’m living on borrowed time.  These doctors deal with everybody’s medical issues every day, for the 15 minutes I’m there I might as well keep things light & not so serious.  When I show up we don’t need to be so serious & wonder what the next pill is I should ween off, let’s have some fun & forget about my cancer for a bit!  Can you imagine how a doctor of any kind can get stressed, let alone a doctor dealing with a cancer patient can get?!  I’m alive!  Don’t be so serious all of the time.  I’ll be serious when I ask for help with something & once it’s done, I shall return to being a nut job!  (Stick with my strength)

3 Chiropractor appointments & 1 massage therapy session on my lower back, right butt cheek, & right leg.  The 3rd trip to my Chiropractor really helped!!  Only problem was the muscles would tighten up overnight.  I’d like to do some mild exercise but it hurts even when I transfer to my wheelchair.  Friday will be all stretching.  Actually, I’ll just continue to stretch until it’s gone.  “Right now” it’s just annoying.  I’ll stand up, have a brief pain & try not to do much.  It only hurts when I move.  Sitting or laying down on my left side or on my back, I’m fine.  Seems like my body just gave up on me.  I’ve decided to take it easy for the month.

I’ve never really been to a massage therapist.  My cousin is a massage therapist though, out of province though.  I was getting up to put my shirt on & ended up breaking the massage table.  I felt like an idiot, snapped the face hole right off.  She said it wasn’t a big deal.  She’ll get a new table from amazon.  Of course we’re going to pay the $20 for it, I just felt so bad.  Lesson learned “Do not put any weight on that part of the table”!

Without doing any exercise it gets EXTREMELY boring for me.  It makes for a very long day.

This just got me riled up!

All of this is from the past week.  I started writing this on Friday all of the information on this post, is a week of music info on Facebook.

My nerve is much better after 2 visits to the Chiropractor.  More stretching & one more visit should do the trick.  On my side overnight the doctor recommended a pillow between my knees, WAY better.  When the pain is completely gone, I’ll cut WAY back on my exercises until January.  So this is nothing more than an update.  A poor way to end a good year of exercising.  Good time to slow down though.

SORRY THIS IS LONG!

My idea for the Blue Jays!

I like ‎Troy Tulowitzki‬ but he’ll be 32 this year where as Ryan Goins‬ will be 29 on Saturday. Anyone in the Toronto Blue Jays organization ever consider trading ‎Tulowitzki‬ for a back up catcher and prospects? Sportsnet‬. Could save some cash for Bautista & ‎Encarnacion‬? Please have someone ask Mark Shapiro &/or Ross Atkins? Having Ryan Goins on the bench would be a waste of his talent, this could free up $17,000,000, & rebuild the farm system if there’s a trade to be made? Bob McCowen has echoed this a few times on air, great! Now could someone ask new G.M. Ross Atkins or new President Mark Shapiro this? Who doesn’t want 2 young athletes playing the 2 very difficult positions in baseball? Goins isn’t known for his offensive power but any offense from a short stop or 2B is an added bonus!

I fell asleep to “Odds” the album “Good Weird Feeling”

I exercised to “Queen’s Greatest Hits” then 6 “Corrosion of Conformity” albums on shuffle.

Thank you “Wayne’s World”!

“Alter Bridge” were averaging music for a song each day last I heard, no lyrics yet though.

I played these on guitar hero, on medium difficulty. Easy, medium, hard, & expert. I lived in medium, tried hard a few times.

I guess “Trivium” has a song on the new guitar hero game

Albums I’m looking forward to in 2016. I only know of 2 releases, Megadeth on January 22nd (already preordered) & of course Tool. Not sure when Into Eternity will be released, I’m assuming next year? “The League of One”, a local band, has an album release on Saturday, December 5th. I just heard the new Tremonti album will be released early next year! More cash to be spent next year!

Christmas tree time now. Saturday evening we went to Corey & Jolene’s place for supper & a Christmas movie with their daughter Hannah. Good times, & great people!

 

I forgot to take my pills last night. I was in bed by 10:00 pm & woke up around 10:30 am. Should have taken my pills! I was awake for 3 or 4 hours in the middle of the night. I took my pills & all was well. Finally fell asleep!

 

I was watching Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown, as I usually do 5 days a week for the first hour of 3 hours. On Friday’s & Monday’s the first hour is for people to call in & ask questions or comment on any topic, from any major North American sport. November 26th and 80% of the phone calls were still about the Blue Jays. Bob said something I had never thought of. Everybody is speculating as to whether free agent pitcher David Price will sign with the Jays since he was traded to them at the trade deadline at the end of July. He’ll likely be signing the last contract of his career, looking for something like $33-$35 million a year for 6-7 year. As Bob said in reply, “If David Price had finished the season with, his former team, The Detroit Tigers, nobody would be talking about THE elite pitcher in the game signing with the Jays”. Bob 1 other Jays fans 0. He also added “Why not take that money, cut it in half & sign 2 decent starting pitchers, instead of the current super star”! Brilliant!

After watching the Blue Jays playoff run last season, I learned something. Good pitching & good defense will usually win against a monster offense that averages 5.5 runs/game. If their pitching staff can have an Earned Run Average, E.R.A., of 4.70 or less they’ll likely win more games than they lose.

 

Songs I like, “Van Halen” I’m not a huge fan of them, but I have nothing against them. In the end, I’m good either way. I could do with a Greatest Hits album.

I find it odd that U2 sent out a free album nobody liked, & the next day Apple releases an app to delete it? Apple screws up iTunes Match for multiple households world wide at the end of June yet as of Sunday evening it’s not fixed yet? 1 album fixed in a day, multiple accounts/libraries yet almost a week later no solution. But they launched their radio station, I guess that’s their first priority?

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

It took a while yesterday in the late afternoon. I did get the “Sonic Highways” HBO series which I had bought for $20 while it was on HBO, the special features in the studios & extended interviews finally showed up. For a while yesterday I thought it might be a Cash Grab! In Canada or at least Regina, HBO is an extra $20 a month for 3 channels on your cable package. We had it for 4 weeks to watch 4 episodes of the series. I found it on iTunes for $20. I figured it’s cheaper to just buy it rather than spending $40 to just watch it & have it disappear.

Somebody wants some of the spotlight? Van Halen is one of those bands that should probably just tour now?

Somebody finally got the memo, it’s not the 1980s anymore, SURPRISE!

I saw “Who is Fancy” do this song on Jimmy Fallon from last night doing this song. Catchy song I have to check into this? Checked iTunes & it’s just a single. I don’t buy single songs because I never listen to them. If there is a full album that I like the most of the songs on then I buy it.

Tuesday on iTunes Halestorm fans!!!

How does a newer band like “Volbeat”, 4 albums, have “Anthrax”, 14 albums, as an opener/special guest? I like both groups, but isn’t Anthrax considered one of the HUGE 4 metal bands? Anthrax formed in 1981, Volbeat formed in 2001? At least they’re bringing “Anthrax” to Regina & Saskatoon!

Kim made me watch “Dancing with the Stars” last night. When she comes home I’ll be on the couch watching………………….BASEBALL! I’m assuming I’ll be sent to the bedroom TV to watch the game?

Songs I like. “Dave Matthews Band” I think I took the time to learn “Ants Marching” on guitar, very difficult for me to sing at the same time, that just never happened for me.
