I went to my doctor today. There is no magic cure for yet another bowel obstruction.....I need to keep taking OTC remedies and drink lots of water and hope for the best. I am on day 7 of another bout of it. My life has been reduced to praying for peristalsis. Sad. He doesn't want me to try to take the 2 pills per day again because I am having too many side effects with just the one. Between the low blood pressure and constipation and abdominal pain and increased PVC's, I am having more and more time wondering if I should even continue this drug. I really need to pray about that possibility. I just do not feel well ever.

Sam comes home on Thursday for spring break. I am taking a week's drug holiday so that I can be the mom he used to see.....the mom before the tiring and frustrating side effects from cancer treatment stole a piece of my essence. I am hoping we have an enjoyable week together.

I hate that this drug is making you so miserable. I hope a week off will give you some respite and a boost of energy to stay strong. Praying for you every day. Love you!

I was out of town, so missed reading your blog for a couple of days. I am sad to hear of your side effects. I will pray for some relief.
Treasure your time with Sam, enjoying the blessings of motherhood and love! Love you, Mary!

I read this on the 7th but it was from my phone so couldn't comment. Been thinking about you SO much!
