If it is the medicine causing the low pressure, it’s not helping that I am pressing the Fentanyl button pretty often. The docs said that I need to press it if I’m in pain, so they can figure out what dose works best for me. So hopefully once the pain management team comes they’ll be able to figure it out!

UPDATE: orthopedic team just came in to check me and said that the x-rays came back and were good, which I assume means there are no fractures. They want to do another MRI of my pelvis, which means another night in the hospital! I’m annoyed that I have to be here, but I’m hopeful that we will figure out where the pain is coming from…

Ugh Jen! Another night? I was so happy to be able to visit you but also sad to see you in pain. I hope they get to the bottom of this so you can find relief and get the hell out of there.
I love you.

I am glad that you are spending dedicated time trying to get relief from your pain and that the x-rays look good, but I’m sorry that it’s frustrating! I’m sorry you’re still in the hospital but so glad you have Laura. Sending you lots of hugs and I hope you can determine how to get some good relief. Love you so much bunny rabbit!

I’m thinking of you and hoping that they can get the pain under control. You are in good hands (Laura’s, Ange’s, the doctors’) and surely they’ll get to the bottom of this. Sending you all my love and then some.
