2nd ASCT - Day 34 - June 21 2012

Had a long bad day at black rock. My raw stomach was hurting me all day and I couldn't seem to do anything to make it better! Couldn't walk outside because it was too windy.

Had DISH satellite television installed today - much to Jani's DELIGHT! Here are the expert installers, Greg and Dave from Star West Satellite out of Idaho Falls.

Around 5 PM, I developed a HORRIBLE AWFUL PAIN in my back radiating through to my stomach. By 7:30 PM, I finally figured out that I had forgotten to take my Famciclovir (shingles protection) and the pain was right over where I had my original shingles outbreak before I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I cannot understate the pain from shingles even if you cannot see any skin lesions!!! Within 30 minutes of taking the Famiciclovir (late), the pain let up and I took Percocet and was able to sleep. Jani has now programmed my phone to alarm at all of my Famciclovir times (7 AM, 3 PM, and 11 PM)...this day was NOT FUN for either of us!
