Bed and Morphine…

Friday was an eventful day.  Finally our bed was delivered!  We have had two nights of amazing sleep!  I can’t tell you the difference this bed has made!  

On Friday, my family arrived about 2 o’clock.  I was in so much pain that I called the doctor and after discussing it, they decided to put me on a slow release morphine pill with the option of taking codeine for breakthrough pain.  I think it is helping.  

It has been nice having my family here.  Yesterday, my parents went and picked up my grandma.  It was good to spend time with her and have her here visiting.  

We also really appreciate all of the dinners that people are bringing!  It has been an amazing blessing!  Thank you so much!

Well it’s late and I think I hear my bed calling!!!  I think it’s always calling.  Today I took a nap and woke up at 6.  I thought it was am not pm.  I was so confused and couldn’t figure out why everyone was already up. It took a few seconds to realize it was 6 pm.  Now that’s some good sleep!  

God Bless,

Monica

    What kind of bed did you get Monica? My bed is about 20 years old and I’m thinking it might be time to start looking for a new one!
    Also, I’ve been wonderin what your pain is caused from? I’m so sorry you have so much pain! How long before they do another CT scan? If I’m asking too many questions, just tell me to stop it! I have 3 specific ladies at work praying for you and when you send an update, I pass it on to them.
    Love you,
    Renae and Herb too!
