Medication vs Pain

by on February 21, 2011

Her pain is controlled but her dosage is so high, her body is on the verge of sedation.  If her pain continues to increase at its normal rate, Satomi will need another Fentanyl patch in one to two weeks.  Given her response to the last patch, I think it is very likely that the next dose could permanently sedate her.  Notice I used the word “permanently”.

Most of you are very savvy readers and pickup on my implied meanings but this time, I’m going to speak to the point.  

If any of you want to visit Satomi and have some possibility of a meaningful interaction, I would plan to do it ASAP.  Her condition changes everyday so sooner is definitely better.

I’m so sorry for the tough love tone but I don’t want there to be any confusion or more importantly, regrets. 

I really hope I’m wrong.
