Beat Cancer, Stephen Jackson, Update 12-18-2016, Daily Log

Well, here I am at 2:30am on Sunday morning trying to sleep. Of course, with no luck.

OwenThe pain in my head is just too intense. It feels like a lot of pressure is up there and the Advil is just holding back a Dam of pain.

I have to hold out till Tuesday to get to another appointment. I hope I can without going crazy.

My grandson, Owen, was here today. He is such a lover-boy at 5 years old, I just love him to death. The problem is, he wants to play with his papa and I just can’t really jump around right now. it just hurts too much.

My night time pain dosage is 3 Advil every 4-6 hrs. My swallowing is not very good so I have to wake up, sit up, and swallow the pills with water. I no longer have my feeding tube, so I have to rely on my throat. Even-though its swollen.

Alright, I’m going to try and sleep again between the breaks in pain. I have a few things to do today and really need the sleep.

Oh, I almost forgot. For some reason, I am getting a lot of foamy saliva in the back of the throat, which is new. I’m not sure if this is common at this point, but thought it was enough to mention it.

Always clearing my throat because it’s building up almost all the time.

Let me know what you think.
