Friday Morning February 23, 2007

Calorie intake: 1300

Reflux: minimal

Pain medication: Fentanyl Patch lowered again today from 25 mcg to 12.5 mcg

Katy decided not to wait to lower her pain medication. She is experiencing some hard withdrawal symptoms and I am awake with her using creative thinking skills to keep her mind busy. She has been determined to get off any medications that are not really helping, so she is sticking by her decision. She should feel a lot better by mid afternoon on Saturday.
Pain level: 3 The pain is located mainly in the area of the gall bladder again.

    Hello Katy and Dawn,
    I dont know what to say but I feel so sorry about Katy feeling so miserable, and you getting probably not enough rest. I will pray for you as I always do, perhaps I have to pray a bit bolder.
    Love In Christ
    Andrea

    Dear Katy,

    Just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you during this time, and pray that the withdrawal becomes more tolerable.

    Love and Prayers
