Not a good report this time on my goals from last week. I completely failed to do any editing. I don’t know, I may have hit a wall on that story. It was interesting to me, but now, I think I’m pretty sick of it. I’ll set it aside for a month or so and come back to it. Maybe then, I’ll actually be interested in finishing the editing. The last couple of weeks, I haven’t done anything on getting something ready for publishing. Mostly I’ve been doing flash fiction and short stories. Good practice and maybe I need to practice for a while before I try to publish anything.
I do have two short stories out to publishers and am waiting on the inevitable rejection letter or perchance an acceptance letter.
Started a new series of writings called Weekly Writing Challenge. Posted the first story last night. I’ll be pulling a new prompt for this week from the jar tonight. I plan on posting each week at about 6 pm Saturday Eastern Standard Time the Weekly Challenge.
I plan on doing a couple of other stories this week as I get the inspiration. Posting may be light as it’s ramping up at work due to Annual Inventory in two weeks.
My battle against cancer continues. I had an MRI yesterday morning. I have an appointment to see the surgical oncologist this Thursday to review the MRI and discuss next steps. I’m hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. This past nine months I’ve had a bucket and a half of emotional blows. I feel pretty good right now, but that could change very quickly.
I also am getting my semi-annual EKG this Tuesday and will see the Cardiologist. I would say I should pass this with flying colors, but I’ve had an occasional twinge in my chest area the past few weeks. When I say twinge, I mean a bit of tightness and I lose my breath for a few seconds. I know, probably not a good sign, but I’m deep in denial right now about my heart. Whether I say anything to the Cardiologist about this is up in the air right now.
Blood sugar wise is also not good. I’ve been testing my blood sugar levels the last couple of weeks. I’m averaging 177 right now which is high. I’ve also noticed that when I have carbs or sugar then my right heel starts hurting. At times, I can hardly walk on it and I’m limping.
All in all health-wise, I’m a mess and still going downhill. If the cancer don’t kill me, then my heart will go out or I’ll die from diabetes.
Till next week, time and tide wait for no man.
