Still Alive...but need a Cure Disease!

Post by Go0gleplex »

Hiya folks. I'm still kickin'. Got into the 3d printer craze and been making tiny starship miniatures by the truck load. :D Argosy Command, which was part of the Domesday Book years ago, got a make over...upgrade...and official ship mini's as well as will be coming out in an official Kickstarter this summer sometime. COVID sort of messed with getting any game group together to play (I'm not really fond of online play...too impersonal for my comfort zone) so not a lot of C&C going here and been too busy to really sit down to write or map things.

On the health side of things; I had to have emergency surgery for a peri-rectal abscess at the end of March this year, which lead to two colonoscopies, (the first one having failed cauterizations and I ended up in the ER bleeding out almost 3 pints), which lead to the discovery of a ping pong ball sized tumor at the end of my small intestine. CT scan showed additional masses in my left lung and one or two other spots in my abdomen...so I get to go get nuked til I glow for a special scan in a couple weeks to make sure of what is cancer and what isn't. Then the knife happy sots in the hospital plan to play. So yeah...a cure disease would definitely be better than doing a holiday turkey imitation (being all carved up for those not getting the reference). ;) Not been given a black card (yet) but Murphy has been making a right royal pain in the arse of himself the last few years.

As a Cleric of Zagyg . . . I call upon the following powers, dwoemers, spells and other magicks of the great game of Dungeons & Dragons ~ cast a heal of disease on YOU!

These items, thoughts, people, and other fab stuff will create the magical healing necessary:

OD&D ‘74
BD&D boxed set Holmes ’78 – my first DM game
C&C white box set 2004
Serleran chat zilla
TLG forums
Gary Gygax
Assault on Blacktooth Ridge
Googleplex excellent contributions to these forums!!! All excellente!
Steve and Davis

And so much more, that I can’t recall at the moment.

Old time forum members (sorry Google, most of them are long gone), please recall and contribute any great memories of our friend Gooleplex.

I cast the spell and hope that you will be healthy and well again.

All the best,

Tadhg (Rhu) !

Hey, sad to hear you've had such severe issues but good to know the mend may be back, even if you're not an item... we'll just rewrite the spell.

Or maybe you need to get onto making more Excel generators. Yeah. That. Do it.

Three CT scans later: Relatively good news. Only three spots of cancer; the primary mass at the end of my small intestine, a smaller mass at a lymph node adjacent, and a small mass in my upper left lung. All operable with a 90% prognosis of full recovery. Just waiting to for a surgery date. Then it'll be trying to figure out how to pay for it all while essentially being unemployed. One step forward, five back with an Ogre's club to the face. (wry chuckle)

Well, glad to hear that the spots can be removed. That's good news.
