““Well its been a few days since I’ve posted to the journal, mostly because I’ve been pretty busy moving to Sausalito this week. The big move will be finished on Monday, and then Beth and I will be living together here in Sausalito a few blocks away from the water – a really relaxing place. And I’m really excited about it.

Not a lot of other things to mention right now except that Beth is keeping me pretty busy and away from this blog and the computer.

One thing that ive started to do is go down in my pain medication. I take morphine sulphate – 45 milligrams, and 600 milligrams of Advil twice a day and I’ve now gone down to 30 milligrams of morphine sulphate to try to just come down and see how things are feeling.

That’s one of the indicators, you know, that the cancer isn’t growing that things are getting better is if I have less bone pain. I’m still having, you know, actually going down on the meds I feel a little more pain but much of it is bearable and much of that is because I got an injection of Aranesp, which is a red blood cell booster, just a few days ago. That also adds a little more pain. So, I’m waiting a few days to see how that goes, and hopefully I’ll stay down on this lower dose.

Anyhow, let me know if you have any questions, I’ll be happy to try and address some of them. Otherwise I’ll just stick to these posts and get to maybe some of what it was like when I was in the hospital, soon.

Ok. Bye bye.””
