At 11 a.m. I finally begin the trial program. I take 5 pills. I’ve already had 3 ekgs, bloodwork, 3 “vitals,” a physical from a doctor, significant time with nurse/practitioner, I will have more of all those things over the next 8 hours here at the hospital. Then I’ll come back here tomorrow morning to do many of them again.
Good signs: 1. even though I’m groggy, I can at least type this: I haven’t been able to read or even watch TV since Monday. 2. Not hiccuping at all. For the first time since the Wednesday before Christmas. 3. Little coughing. 4. breathing feeling healthier again.
