Today is the third day my back is hurting really bad. On a scale of 1 to 10 it’s about a 7 and that’s after the pain medicine I’m on. Something is definitely wrong and I am really struggling.
I tried all day to get some extra pain medicine or find out if I could take more of what I have, but was unsuccessful. I just called the Dr. on call and got another prescription for tonight and found out how much more of the morphine I currently have thag I can take tonight. He also told me to add in two ibuprofen every 8 hours.
Please pray that this will relieve the pain enough so that I can sleep. I slept really horrible last night because I was in so much pain. I meet with my palliative care nurse during my infusion tomorrow, so I’m thankful to be able to discuss it more with her. I was also people to get an orthopedic doctor appointment on Wednesday to talk to him about strengthening my back somehow.
Please also pray for our girls and Tom as they see me like this. This isn’t something I can hide and I wish I could. Thanks friends.
