I thought the pain meds would help Bob deal with the pain but I went out to the Dollar Store last night to get a brownie mix and when I got home he was in the bathroom and later on the floor of the bedroom. I asked him what happened and he said the pain meds made him sick and dizzy. He lay there for an hour and a half and I kept checking in on him. Finally I had him take some Dramamine and after another hour, I was able to get him back to the bed. He is sleeping in the den on the daybed now because he sleeps with a bunch of pillows to rest the arm on and he needs more room to do that. I think he went back to the Aleve after that. The kitchen light was on at 3:00 AM and the Aleve bottle was out and a glass of water.
The cancer appears to be all through his upper body. His back is swollen and sore, his abdomen is also swollen, and the other armpit also hurts now.
I think we're in for a long spring and summer. He sees the oncologist next Wednesday. We may (or may not) know more then.
I will go to Independence this morning for my hair appointment and meet Juanita for breakfast. Bob watches his TV show between 9:00 and 10:00. It's "The Doctors". I will try to get back home before 10:00.
I want to finish dusting, bake my brownies and trim the yard. I got the mowing done yesterday and also cleaned the house and scrubbed the bathrooms. But I only got started on the dusting.
Next Tuesday, if the weather and Bob's condition permit, I will dig out around the Rose of Sharon in the front yard next to the drive. Then I will line it with stone of some sort and mulch it. It is impossible to mow around and the weeds look unsightly.
