This morning when I woke, I was unable to move. Pain from the chemo I had two days before had hijacked my body. The soreness was deep in my bones and my joints felt like they were petrified. The vertebrae in my spine pulsated with pain in time with my heart beat, which was elevated. I was so uncomfortable that I couldn’t get out of bed.
Michael came to my rescue. Dr. N had prescribed Vicodin for my pain. Michael ran to the kitchen like a superhero and brought me a glass of water and two pills. I swallowed them and settled back to wait for them to take affect.
I must have dozed off because I woke a while later feeling Great! The vicoden had taken the pain away and made it so that I was able to bounce out of bed and get some work done. I’m so grateful to have a remedy for debilitating pain.
