World Series, baby!

The Nats have won the pennant! National League Champions. They swept the St. Louis Cardinals in four games. They will face either the New York Yankees or Houston Astros in their first World Series in the franchise's history! When they were still the Montreal Expos, they never got this far.

The last time a Washington team made it to the World Series, it was 1933 and they were the Washington Senators (they lost). The only Series they won was in 1924!



On to the National League Championship! They will face the St. Louis Cardinals, who slaughtered the Braves today,13-1. Ouch. But I have faith in the Nats! They pulled it off tonight in L.A.! Sorry, Dodgers. Washington wanted it just a little bit more.

After that 10th inning grand slam, L.A. knew it was over. I almost felt bad!

This is a historic occasion for the Nats! The last time the team got this far, they were still the Montreal Expos (1981). And a D.C. team hasn't won a World Series since the Senators in 1924!



Had another TMJ flare up this week. Not fun. This is what sent me to Urgent Care when I was in Atlanta two years ago. So I'm doing what I did then with my PA's instructions- keep taking Advil and my muscle relaxant, and apply heat when needed. So far it's working. I hope it goes away soon, because it's hard to sing when I can't open my mouth!

Sad Deep Space Nine news.

My fellow Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans, we have lost Aron Eisenberg. I am gutted. He loved his fans and I enjoyed interacting with him on Facebook (he liked a few of my posts!). Nog was one of my favorite supporting characters in all of Star Trek. Aron will be missed by his family, friends, and fans. :(

This one really hurts. And it was sudden. He had just posted in the Star Trek Shitposting group yesterday! He was a member of the group and always had fun with it, especially if the memes and jokes involved Nog.

He was only 50. Two years older than me.

Just a quick post.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. For a year and a half, I have been fighting this disease. September marks one year since my oncologist said that so far, I seem to be cancer free. My next quarterly check-up is in October. He will probably order a scan in addition to the exam and blood work. I hope I continue to be in remission! One year down, one more of quarterly check-ups before switching to two per year. I still have a long way to go.

Another milestone.

One year ago today, I had my sixth and final round of chemotherapy! In another month, I will have been in remission for a whole year. So far, so good!

24 hours.

In just 24 hours, there have been two deadly mass shootings in America. 20 dead and 26 injured in an El Paso Wal-Mart yesterday morning, and overnight at least 10 dead and 16 injured in a Dayton, Ohio bar. This is insane.

Three months later.

My surgery was three months ago today. I'm pretty much back to normal! I was able to dogsit for Katie twice and will do more next week. My sleeping schedule is still off a bit, but the pain is gone.

I did finally get to see Avengers Endgame, and saw Rocketman this week. Yesterday, Katie and I went to Luray Caverns. I'd never been. It was fun!

Good news.

I had a visit with the oncologist today. After my exam he told me everything looked and felt good. Unless something turns up in my blood tests, I don't have to see him again until late September. Still in remission! Yay. I'll probably have to have a scan then.

It never ends.

A mass shooting at a city government building in Virginia Beach. 12 dead, 5 injured. Shooter also died after a gunfight with police. Apparently, he was a long time employee who had been fired that day. Thoughts and prayers incoming, with no solutions in sight.
