We had a bad night last night and this morning.  We kept having the same thing we had at noon yesterday, where we’d try to get up and start screaming and throw ourselves backwards and writhe with no real reason.  I took her to work this morning and put a new fentanyl patch back on her and give her an injection to keep her comfortable in the meantime.  Discontinuing the tramadol for now, it wasn’t working quite well enough.  After that, we had one more little episode, but not quite as bad, and because we decided to try and race across the house to meet someone.  Hopefully it will keep her more comfortable for now.  I brought home another pain injection just in case we have another rough night waiting for her patch to kick in, since it takes 12-24 hours.  In the meantime, she managed to take a nice deep nap for a little while with the assistance of one of those grand little comforts.


When I first got her, she stole a stuffed wolf I was given, and so… I gave it back to her today.  Both of them are showing their age, but the little comforts are important.  Hopefully tomorrow is a better day since I have to work again on Monday.  Thankfully, I have the benefit of being able to take her to work with me.
