I've alternated between exhausted and just tired these past few days. This morning I woke up an vomited while having some nausea. Not the kind of morning one would like to have.

Last night I tried taking Oxycodone (nee: Roxicodone, OxyContin) and Lorazepam (nee: Ativan) to help me sleep. I felt like I had a shower-bar in my stomach area that wasn't able to get out. I hope nothing is blocked in there. On the plus side I'm taking advantage of my feeling mostly-OK to get these blog posts out of my head and into electronic form. I'll have one about the radiation procedure (which is coming up on March 18th). Should be fascinating, and I'm hoping it'll knock some of this cancer into the "debugged" category.

There's been a lot of coping that I've had to do as of late to stay in some semblance of productive. Usually it starts with small things that I know I can get done and moving up larger items as my energy allows. Other times it's just attacking the larger items and using the momentum from those to try to power other tasks.

More as I know it.
