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!
