Personal Update

Posted by OldBones-Larry Aug 9, 2018

This is something I was hoping to be writing several years from now. Nothing major or unexpected, but something I was hoping to put off.

During my sleep study this last time, several things came to light.

1. I still didn't sleep long enough to get a thorough study result.

2. I have Restless Leg Syndrome. This is being treated with medication and is allowing me to sleep better.

3. My Oxygen Saturation dropped to 74% during deep sleep. There were many 5 minute periods where it was below 88% while I was asleep. This is a major problem and will be addressed with night time Oxygen as soon as they can set it up. The Neurologist believes that I might need Oxygen 24/7, and has suggested to my Pulmonologist that they test me for this.

I will be doing another sleep study once all of this is taken care of.

Just another bump to overcome in this journey....

Travel strong and stay on the trail my friends.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.



Battle Over

Posted by OldBones-Larry Aug 1, 2018

We have been in battle with these guys for many days now.
After I last wrote you, they decided to try breaking out. We have kept them enclosed with only one direction they could travel without meeting our men.
Slowly we began forcing them towards the ruins. They resisted for many days, but finally they began losing ground.
We pushed them back towards the ruins in a running skirmish. I can't really call it a battle since they never tried attacking.
When we reached the ruins, everything changed though.
When the vipers claimed their first victim, the Nico-baddies began fighting to break free of our trap.
We kept the circle intact and held them in. Slowly we kept pushing them into the ruins.
We then stopped and just kept them trapped in the ruins. Our men encircled the entire ruins and held firm.
We discovered this morning that the vipers had killed every one of our adversaries.
We left them for the desert to claim and are moving towards the nearest oasis. We need rest and refreshment after holding the seige for this long.
Some figs, dates, and cool water will be very welcome. We will stay at the oasis and rest for several days.
Travel safely friends and keep a sharp lookout for traps.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
