9.30.06, A Settling Process

Just a quick check in for now, though I'll try to post more tonight. Today's Franky Scale is somewhere in the 6 range; and yesterday maybe fell into the 4 range at some point. Post general anaesthesia never feels great to me, although the procedure itself seemed much better than my last EUS/endoscopic ultrasound, less tearing up of my throat, now swallowing issues, or feeling like that epiglottis thingy in the back of my throat my actual come of and get swallowed. That last one when they took the biopsies was just shitty. So the post-procedure day was difficult with gut pain and the slow dying off of my celiac plexus, the gradual easing off of the local anaesthetic, and just fatigue from chemo left over. Today's a great improvement. For what it's worth.

Hey Mr. Jones:

Franky scales at 4 are shitty.
I'm grateful for the improvement.
Maybe some pho will make your throat feel better.
I've sent you a couple of emails today. : )

Steph aka Lefty is crying about her Stella
Scooter and is standing outside blocking
the entrance to the garage. She cracks me up.

Did you know it was Mormon Conf. ????
See, I live here and still no one tells me
anything.

We were going for pho or something Asian
and yummy tonight-- but alas,
now green jello, fry sauce and vanilla ice cream.
The "staples" of Zion.

Any suggestions for a good flick or video?
