10/22/12: Good morning! I finally noticed some improvement yesterday, mainly that I was able to wait an extra hour in between pain meds plus I was able to consume a larger quantity of my liquid diet.
Michael put the finishing touches on my Halloween Mausoleum setup, and it looks great! The photo really doesn’t do it justice without the associated lights, sounds, and moving parts. My grandnephew came over to watch Prometheus (the prequel to the Alien movies) with me last night – all in all a good day.
I slept well and required no pain meds for more than 11 hours – I still need them to be able to eat and drink more than a sip though…a step at a time.
