Just one damn thing after another

I continue to be pain and nausea free.

Unfortunately, last evening and this morning, I experienced severe nervous restlessness. I don't really have the energy to keep moving, because I'm not getting much nutrition, but I can't keep still either.

I talked to Dr. Parker who, fortunately, is on call this weekend. The restlessness is a side effect of the Reglan I'm taking to stimulate my stomach to resume working. I guess it makes sense that if it is designed to make some muscles twitchy, the others can get caught up in the same net.

He told me to take a teaspoonful of liquid Benedryl two or three times a day and that it should clear up.

I have to remind myself that twitchy is bad, but not as bad as nausea or pain.

I guess the greatest disappointment is that we were not able to attend our new nephew's christening in Falls Church today.

Hi Jimmy, Happy to have you back in the saddle, although Judy was a fine stand in in your absence. I know the list of disappointments may seem to be growing but try to concentrate on how far you've come. Hang on a little while longer we know you can and will be whole once again. Keep fighting the good fight!
