Where Is Relief?

Delve into the light and dark that is Mark
This bleak Thursday I look around and wonder where is the relief?
As I have often said, weather is not my friend. Not only am I being affected, but both Mom and Susie are also being imp;acted by the rainy, cooler climate that’s been lingering across the Cornfield.
i was roused out of slumber at 4 a.m. Why, I have not the foggiest. I was, however, after answering a call of nature to go back to sleep until shortly passed 6 a.m.
i HAD HOME aIDE bAMBI TURN OFF THE AIR CONDITIONER YESTERDAY WHEN SHE CAME TO SPRUCE ME UP. tHOUGH THE MERCURY WILL RISE SOME ON fRIDAY, IT WILL PLUNGE COME sUNDAY.
fALL IS HERE.
tRYING TO STAY AWAKE HAS BEEN DIFFICULT TODAY. i CAN BE WATCHING THE NEWS. MY LEG SHAKES ME AWAKE. i REALIZE i HAVE FALLEN BACK INTO sAND lAND.

Welcome, I am Mark Ivy, a born and bred Hoosier. I am father to two wonderful sons, Dave and Kev, of whom I am very proud;two terrific daughters-in-law, Anna and Hailey; three beautiful granddaughters: Dylan, Alaina and Amelia. On May 9, 2017, my pulmonologist gave me six months or less to live as a result of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) caused by histoplasmosis, described below. On September 2, 2014, I was diagnosed with disseminated histoplasmosis, a fungal infection, discovered by a biopsy of my larynx. The infection is fatal if left untreated. For 2 1/2 years I lived under a death sentence being misdiagnosed with a non-specific bacterial infection which left my right lung a "dried up sponge" and non-functioning. I was aggressively treated for the infection with antifungals. The treatment ended October of 2015 and fortunately did not take two years. I suffer from chronic Horton's Syndrome. The effects vary widely causing various problems. Statistically, Horton's affects only 0.1% of the population. Major depression also attacks me regularly.
