Well today is the day for my six month assessing. Oh to have so much joy in my life! I have to have a quick talk with the dietician, PT, the NP, social worker and everyone else that is part of my medical team. A real PITA! But I will cooperate. So I will be MIA for today. By the time I get home this afternoon, I will be exhausted, but still have to go to a wake for a kid that my kids played with for many years. They lived right next door to us. He died of cancer. I am glad that it wasn't due to another overdose. It just seems like all their friends are gone due to OD. Then I will probably collapse when I get home. I have just barely recovered from Sunday's parade.

It is hard to remember I am 75 until I have weeks like this. Then I face a giant reminder called my body.

Tuesday was a very busy day for me. As a result I have overdone it. I have been sick since Tuesday night and it looks like I will be in bed for the weekend. So I most likely won't be on.

I am feeling a bit better today. I think I have turned the corner.

I sent a loooong email to Poo. He is my medical proxy. I gave him a blow by blow talk of letting him know exactly what has been happening these past months with my pain management. The problem is that I have been on Vicodin for more than eight years now and I feel that I have built up a tolerance to them. They are no longer working. My NP keeps upping my dose of Gabapentin. Those have no effect at all on my hip and spine. They are meant to control seizures and the accompanying pain. All I need of them is one in the morning and one in the evening before bed. And now I am in pain all the time. The Vicodin are now just numbing the pain. Not stopping it. And having constant pain is exhausting.

So Poo called The Pirate and he told Poo how bad I have gotten. Poo is very angry. So he is going to call my doctor this coming Friday (his day off and the day I know the doctor is in Winthrop). He doesn't care if I even get addicted, but he wants my medication of pain changed. He wants me on five or ten mgs. of Percoset. I have to agree with him. The doctor will listen to him. Sometimes it pays to have someone with more medical knowledge than yourself.

Thank you all for your well wishes. Now back to bed.

Good luck with that. And don't stay away for a year like this last time. We need your humor around here.
