Plan B On Monday
Increased pain sent me to the hospital in the middle of the night on Wednesday. The process of adjusting the meds always takes longer than anticipated. The best advice at this point appears to be a celiac plexus block (look it up). This could be done on Monday or Tuesday and could provide a couple of months of a non-narcotic contribution to pain relief. Participating in Monday's ceremony is simply not possible without more effective control of the pain. So Barack will have to make do without me. A substitute had already been worked into the preliminary plans. Happy Graduation, Seniors -- 2012. We'll be watching you.
