Talked to my nurse yesterday because I have still been having pain with the patches and some PERCOCET..(I could honestly deal with the pain physically I think… But mentally I can’t take it right now) so my Doctor told me to start taking 2 PERCOCET every 8 hours and see how that feels… If I still have breakthrough pain, then they will up the patch again…

Hopefully I won’t be loopy at work today.. Between the lack of sleep and pills I’m kind of worried…

Oh Jen! I’m so sorry you are feeling all this. I wish they could just get the pain under control so you didn’t have that added layer of suffering. I am thinking of you and sending all my love. It was a treasure to see you yesterday even briefly, even though you weren’t feeling well. Love you.

hi sweet friend. i’m sure you’ve looked into allyour options…but are there any remedies using acupuncture for pain? i’ve heard people rave about the results…not cancer patients, but have you looked into it? don’t know how to help, so i’m going to send you a HUGE cyber hug and fantasize about having coffee with you on sunday…

Hoping you made it to work today and theat your not to “loopy” although sometimes that may not be a bad thing. Hoping and wishing your pain lessens and that you are able to do the things you want. I hope you feel all the positive energy being sent your way. Jen – you are a strong, beautiful person and I am truly blessed to have met you and will continue to pray for your healing. Love, Tina

Dad… It was great as usual!!! Ib made me smile and laugh out loud and Erin made me laugh so hard I wanted to pee my pants.. It’s amazing how bonding over cancer can be such a distraction…
