Absolutely excruciating stomach (gas?) pains today. And I mean excruciating. I have not been in so much pain, for an extended period of time, since I broke my collar bone (in two places) in seventh grade.
Every time we thought we had it under control, it came back stronger. The worst came after Heather left - she was here to get the big lesson in home care since I'm going home tomorrow.
I literally got on my hands and knees (on the bed) and tried deep breathing while moving my hips around, trying to contain the pain and the accompanying moans/screams.
Finally they gave me some IV med, dilaudid, which put me on a different planet but took away the pain. It's been a couple hours, so it's wearing off. I feel a tiny twinge of pain, but nothing like before. I'm praying hard that it doesn't come back. Not sure I can take it again. Gonna get another dose of dilaudid if I can.
OK, that's it for now. Sorry for the downer of a post.
