So today was what we expected... the pain has hit. In rebeccas words the epidural was a tease. Sometimes the worst pain is not the sharp ones but the pain you can not escape. So far we are still trying to figure out a way to stay ahead of the pain.. Meaning Percocet every 4 hours, Codon 2 times a day , small bits of morphine in between.. and its very tough to get it all right. The doctors have been upping amounts and rebecca has been trying to find comfort with different positions but all of this seems to have little effect.
Everyone is fighting to keep the mental game in action since the physical game seems to be losing its battle. I know up until this point keeping some humor in action was helping but now we are looking at the calendar and finding comfort in the fact that we are 5 days in .. and also reading some comments left by people that have had similar issues, saying they were almost fully recovered in 6 weeks and that things got much better after a week.. so we are creeping at a snails pace closer ..Rebeccas room is filled with flowers and showers of support every message and well wish really is helping keep a smile on rebecs face.. thanks for all the support .. im going to copy Mary's blog here .. Rebeccas blog on her website is now being updated so please check there as well for updates.. that rebeccahoward.ca
