Less Pain

Today was such a good day. Katy wrote about it on her Musings. I was sure it would be a better day because she has stopped asking for her pain medication. When things are bad, she begins to ask for help before two hours passes. As she begins to recover, she will start sleeping longer between doses and eventually stop asking for pain relief. Today was a no pain medication day. The pain in her body has subsided, and she smiled nearly all day. Her new regimen of vitamin D was started today. It is a very large dose, but her doctor believes it will aid in the absorption of calcium and magnesium. With better absorption she will have less muscle tension and bone pain. Picture her sleeping peacefully without pain right now, and you can probably imagine how Paul and I feel tonight. We are so grateful. We savor these times.

    That’s great to hear! I always hurt for you, Katy, when I hear you are in pain again.
