So I thought I would do I little update on my evening. I started to have more pain as the night went on so we tried to get that under control last night. I had dinner felt great and then they gave me some morphine for the pain to get it under control. We started out with 1 ml. I guess that is quite low. I felt a little sick but still having pain so the nurse gave me 1 more ml diluted and with in seconds throw up. I guess I have an allergy to morphine. So no morphine for this girl. We tried two different other pain medication. We found a winner it worked so much better it is the Lora tab. I was able to have a bowl of ice cream. The pain was a little more bearable and was able to get a little sleep. I got up this morning and at 5:30 had the CT scan and got that over with. Now I am having some breakfast and will wait for the doctor.

Oh, goodie, I'm the first one to post this time! Glad to hear that they let you eat a bowl of ice cream, that is pain medication in itself! So much for sleeping in on your little mini vacation. Couldn't they wait until a little later in the morning to do the CT scan? That's one thing about hospitals, they never let you get any sleep! Glad to hear you're doing so well!

Hi Rochelle,
I talked to your Mom last night. She told me everything went well. That's great. We are all praying for you.

Uncle Carl and I are moved into our apt. Some of the things that should have gone to storage ended up in the apartment, and some that should have come to the apartment went to the storage. Oh well, I'll just have to make a quick trip to the store.

We love you. Tell the kids and Ryan hi from us. I'm still hoping I can talk Uncle Carl into a little trip to see everyone. Life should slow a bit now. If it doesn't, I am going to slow down without it.
Love, Aunt Linda

Glad the surgery went well...hopefully they got all of it. This maybe a silly question...but why is it important that it is breast cancer? Is it treated differently if it isn't? I personally have an allergy to codine...so I know how it goes! Glad LoriTab works for you!

Gordon and I are so glad to hear everything went well. We think about you guys all the time and are always praying that everything turns out fine. We always check your blog so even though we don't always leave a comment we're always reading and praying for you guys. I think you need to complain a little more so they'll let you stay at the hospital a little longer.
