The Cancer Center called this morning to inform me that the Radiation machine will be down for maintenance this Friday.  They rescheduled me for next Tuesday the 13th at 12:15. This makes about 5 times this procedure has been postponed for one reason or another by me or by the Center.  Is this an omen??

I can surely use the time for healing from the PEG tube surgery performed 8 days ago and which is still causing me painful muscle spasms.  So now I have 4 more days to recover.  Still taking pain meds and do get relief for about 4 or 5 hours at a time.  Yesterday was a good day and I went up to 6 hours before having to take another dose at 5:00am this morning.  I try to go longer each time.  If I remain still on the sofa I can go a little longer during the night but by morning the pain wakes me up.  I realize now that I heal a whole lot slower than most.  I guess the diabetes has a lot to do with it.    

I am in the middle of a dog sitting job and have to be real careful that the dog does not jump up on the sofa and hit my belly.  He is such a cute and playful little Shih Tzu and it saddens me that I can't play with him like I used to.  He is no trouble and sleeps all night long with me on the sofa.  I surround myself with pillows so he can't get to my belly.  I'm going to miss him when I can no longer dog sit.  In fact, he just may be my last sitting job.
