...vicodin, vicodin, that's our cry.............. V-I-C-O-D-I-N !



I finally gave in...
after nearly 20 hours of unrelenting, burning, nauseating pain...
I stepped over to the dark side...

6 codeine/Tylenol within a 3 hour span, couldn't touch it...
ice packs[OK, frozen peas... and a real ice pack...]
had the effect of increasing the pain, especially when removed...

as many as 6 Excedrin Back & Body, plus a couple of extra strength Excedrin...
only a slight dulling at first...then no real comfort...

same with 6 Advil... NO effect to speak of...
I only used 4 Advil at a time...
with my amputation...

needless to say, I haven't slept more than 30/40 minutes at a time...
since my finger "woke up" around 10:30 PM last night...

so at 4:15 PM...still having heard nothing back from the doctor's office...
[I had called at 9:15 AM]
on the encouragement of Unkle Phil...
I tried again...this time reaching a nicer person...

so now, I sit here, choking down some food...
[this pain has chased away all my interest in eating...]
so that as soon as my system is clear of the Advil...
I can take some vicodin...



oh...and R is coming tomorrow at 10 AM...
to install the shower door & window...
if all goes well, I may have my first shower tomorrow evening...

all that & pain relief too...

God is good... all the time...
