Something new

So finally the barfing begins. First time in over 30 years, and it never happened during chemo last time of course. It tasted like pills and vitamins. I'm working on eating a banana now, slowly. Since I'd jut taken annoy about 2 minutes before, I have a feeling I'll need to retake that one.

Back pain up to about a 9. I think I need to get a base level of the oxy in my system. I felt totally pain free for a couple of hours yesterday, I may have falsely attributed that to the Fentanyl, but I think it was the combo that was the key.

As a father, I want to say something like, "Be brave, my son," but that sounds so cliched. On the other hand, it's the right thing to encourage. Wish I could help in some way. . . . Now here's a coincidence. "Fentanyl" sounded familiar, and sure enough, just today I got a report I'd requested of a colonoscopy done five years ago (it's time for another) and fentanyl was one of the drugs they gave me. It did make things seem mellow, dunno if that was the intent.
