today’s been kind of so-so pain wise, i mean. bobbing around a 7-8 all day which is about average for me, i guess. it nudged up to a 9 briefly earlier, but then the pain killer kicked in.
i should mention the new scrip is hydrocodone (percoset) 5-325mgs. i’m supposed to take 1-2 pills every 8 hours. (according to the label) well. sort of. 😛 i take 1 every 4 hours. that’s technically 2 every 8, right? i’ve already discovered the hard way there’s no way in hell or any other imaginary dimension that i can wait 8 hours between pills except at night and the only way i can do that is to take a benadryl when i get up in the middle of the night.
guess i should talk about that too. i get up 2 or 3 times a night and it’s for hours on end. every night. pain wakes me up. i move in my sleep and BAM! i’m up.i generally wobble to the loo with my cane and hanging onto the wallls and furniture for support, take a pill, pee and wobble back to bed to play with the cats till the beadryl can kick in an hour or so later if i’m lucky.
p.s. Will just called and invited me to come see “musical of Musicals, the Musical’ (note- which i HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! if you’re a fan of musicals at all this’ll be a fun evening)
