Comfortable at last

They FINALLY got the morphine pump up and running so all Marshall has to do is push a button for pain relief. Now we need to work on nausea and constipation.

Once he goes through a whole 24 hours of monitoring how much morphine he uses (along with a separate drug called Dilaudid) then I think they will send us home with a pain medication plan. I hope that will be Saturday.

He just ate dinner and didn't throw it up (and he hadn't eaten anything for two days), so we are making progress.

Can't wait to get the radiation treatments going and hope that will alleviate the pain and let us do away with this heavy duty opiod use.

We are now sitting here watching TV and using our iPads -- all "normal" stuff -- hoping for a quiet pain-free night.
