The Weekend

Friday night I made a pizza, and used the usual spices and garlic, and was sipping red wine, when Gigi got a full nose of smells. 

The richness of wine, garlic, oregano, tomatoes, and yeast almost made her break out in tears after eating bland, salt less food in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks. I can’t quit cooking for her now. 

However my girl has had a tough 16 hours. She was prescribed a drug that enhanced another pain drug to be taken when she had breakthrough pain. Last night she did have severe pain, took the drug and she had a horrible reaction. She shook and trembled, couldn't urinate, and was dreadfully weak and drowsy. She felt like her skin was crawling.

I called the doctor this morning and wasn't sure what had happened, but said to keep a close eye on her. 

Well about 1 this afternoon she took the drug again and this time we knew what it was that caused the misery. Hopefully tomorrow we'll get over this setback. It has left her bedridden and moaning in agony. 

The drug is wearing off now and she is sleeping. 

I love that woman. 

I'll stay home with her tomorrow.
