Mid-Week Update

I can't believe that it is already Wed. night, this week has flown by and I haven't done much of anything this week.
The new and most powerful pain med that I'm now on has some strange side effects, and because it varies from day to day, I am no longer comfortable driving. I feel ok if I'm driving in my neighborhood, but not anything outside of it. So, my mom has been taking me places this week.
Tomorrow is a big day, as I have an appt. with a new pain management Dr. , one I hope will help me and will understand my pain better than the last one did. Since I have been on this new med, my pain has gone from hurting 24/7 to barely hurting or not hurting at all. I am having some breakthough pain, but nothing compared to what it was.
Eating no longer hurts, but I still can't eat alot of stuff, due to stomach issues. My swallowing has gotten better, but I still don't want to push it.

My grandmother has been sick this week as well. She was taken to the hospital Saturday morning by EMS because she was so dizzy and nauseous she couldn't stand up. She was kept over night for observation, but all that was discovered was she is having some issues with her equalibrum and balance being off. The Dr. wants her to start physical theraphy and that should help her get better soon.

I would appreciate extra prayers for my appt. tomorrow. I don't know what my choices are reguarding my pain treatment. Prayers that the Dr. will be able to help and work with me and my body.
I will update tomorrow night about how the appt. went and the pain plan.
