I managed to get a full night sleep in part due to better drug control. I woke up with some pain but with a good attitude. Popped some pills and I'm good to go for about 6 hours before I have to take more pills.
My morale is very high after hearing this week from college buddies and other friends from my youth. It was sure good to talk with them.
We recently got new neighbors-Suzanne and Ken, who are terriffic people. Yesterday they went to a Half-price book store and purchased about 30 books from my favorite or soon to be authors after learning of my interest in sleuth/special agent novels. I find that losing myself in a good novel goes a long way to temper pain.
Steve and I are going to a car show at a local mall later today.
Tomorrow is round two of chemo. I'll provide an update tomorrow afternoon.
