February 13, 2014

The blogging is slowing down. If you're concerned it's because I'm not feeling up to blogging, well, you'd be right. I've been trying to figure out what could possibly be putting me through all this pain, because I simply can't believe the disease would progress this rapidly throughout my body again. Scans tomorrow will show at least some of the story, I'm sure.

It has, indeed, been quite the struggle in the recent week or two. Overall soreness, odd pains, and the gloriously numb quarter of my mouth are making for some unbelievably fun times, as you could imagine! Waking up in the middle of the night, sweating or writhing, calling on my trusty helpers Bigfoot and Old Man Wrinkles to help a brother out with a hot water bottle or readjusting position on the bed to gain some comfort has become commonplace. Showers - highly optional. Naps - necessary. Sometimes these pain meds don't kick in right away and kinda linger in the system and I'll just get slammed by a delayed reaction and pass right out. Just woke up from one of those naps...it was sweet.

The pain meds mess with you something awful. Nature of the beast really. I'll pop some, nothing will happen, then maybe 15 minutes or oh, I don't know, 6 hours later I suddenly won't be able to text. Like at all. Forget about having a nice little conversation, I'm sure I sound like I'm as high as a kite when I hit that stage. Maybe I'll attempt to obtain video evidence.

Everything else remains in the holding pattern until we find out what these scans show tomorrow. Until then, I'll just be enjoying watching the snow fall. And fall and fall some more it shall...later everyone!

  2. Nick -
    We're thinking about you daily and hoping you can pull this one out. Some crazy, wild plan just might work. Keep the faith and stay strong. And if you really feel strong, come on over and shovel some of this white stuff out of the way. It's been a brutal winter and we're all ready for some warmth and sunshine. Here's to a better Spring for you and all of us!

  10. You will NEVER be forgotten Nick. You shed a bright light on us and we were blessed to share this short time with you. Our baseball times are forever and you gave us such great memories. I am so sad today, but when I think of you I cannot help but smile! Thanks for teaching me how to live and not let those little life obstacles get you down. God bless you and God bless your Mom and Dad. Mr. Corona & family
