Friday, November 12, 2010: Pain in the Back

We need prayers tonight for Kristi.  The pain in her lower back is increasing in intensity.  This morning was nearly unbearable.  After she saw her kinesiologist she felt much better, but still had a lot of pain.  I called Dr. Downey's nurse, Amber, and she gave me some directions.  Basically, Kristi has not been wanting to take any pain meds because of the effects they have on she just grins and bears it.  Amber said that's not a good idea...better to stay ahead of the pain, not play catch up.  So we may have a few bad days as we try to catch up to manage her discomfort.  So, one dose of Vicadin and Adivan and off to bed she went...about 4:00 this afternoon.  This is going to be a rough few days.  Please pray for patience and sanity for all of us.
