Pain is always in the wings

Well, we will have several really good days and then Mr. Pain decides we've had enough good days.

So the past two days Marshall has been in a lot of pain and unable to do much of anything. Today he went back to his primary care doctor and got another one of those aspirin-like injections and now he's feeling better. He'll get another injection tomorrow.

The primary care doctor thinks the pain is cancer-related but when we brought this up to the oncologist last month he said that if it was cancer related, it would not go away that easy. So we're going with the oncologist's opinion.

It seems to me that if an anti-inflammatory quiets the pain down, then it must be inflammation causing the pain and not cancer. But at any rate, Marshall is feeling much better and that's good.
