Today was Not a Good Day. I got up round 7:45, with a hell of a headache, I took some Tylenol which did lower the pain but still left some pressure on top of my head. The headache was not the only issue, I still have pain at the bone marrow location as well as muscle pain in the hip area. I also had shoulder pain, making it difficult to turn my body. Since the pain would not go down I decided to take Dilaudid which helped a bit. I ended up with less pain in exchange with lightheadedness.
