Hospital day for John.

Didn't take long for the doctor to snip his prostrate...10 times, we were only in the clinic for about half hour. The meds the doctor used this time made John feel dizzy, and he took a 2 hour nap this afternoon. I've never seen him sleep that deep while he's just having a nap. Mind you an injection in the butt makes me want to shiver among other things;-)

I do think my pain is responding to the Gaba a little, I can at least make a cup of coffee without being in pain and I can walk a little further too. The Zanaflex is total crap. My muscles are having some awesome spasms. Going up to the 2500mg next Tuesday.

I'm so happy I stopped the Carisoma. I feel alive, not sleepy all the time and have so much more energy. I'm never going back on them.

I think the only side effects from the meds are some confusion between my hands and brain LOL. And I keep doing silly things. Like yesterday I went to get 2 treats for Spike and brought out of the cupboard two cans of dog food LOL.

Thank goodness this has spellcheck!!!!!
