CAN'T SLEEP - DAY 2
Had a bad night. Took my last pain meds at 1:00am and tried to fall asleep but the meds make me speed and my mind races. In the past I have taken Xanax to sleep but can't swallow any pills just yet. Tried to lay still and didn't take any more meds during the night to see if I could sleep but I couldn't. Finally took another dose at 7:00am this morning and ate a small pudding cup. It felt sticky in my throat so drank a lot of water with it. Will have some soup later today.
The cool mist humidifier I purchased works well to keep my throat moist. It is a small unit and needs refilling every 15 minutes or so - which is a hassle.
It was so nice to have a friend here with me last night. It's a bit scary to think that there is a chance of bleeding for the next 2 weeks and I'll be alone during that time.
