Blah - Just Blah

I get so caught up in my head sometimes - it stresses me out. Chad is in a lot of pain today. The VA has severely messed up sending out his prescriptions and he's ran out of everything. Since then, his pain has come back in folds. He's at a 5 today which is about 2 points higher than his normal amount of pain.

He is having bowel movements but his belly is bloated and the pain points that used to bother him have returned. The bloating comes and goes but it also causes a stir of fear. I am sure that the increase in pain has to do with lack of medication. You can't just pour drugs into your body and then stop cold turkey and expect to feel normal. I am hoping and praying they arrive today, otherwise a trip to Marion is in our very near future. Like tomorrow.

Not to wish my life away but I also wish the GI appointment and CT Scan would hurry up and get here. I'd feel so much better knowing a doctor has looked around thoroughly and we can resume living with the little letters NED on our plate. (For those of you who don't know what that means, it's 'No Evidence of Disease') And also, that the GI Doc can find ways to help Chad deal with this never-ending pain. For real, he's always hurting to some extent. Obviously worse when he's working. :( And it seems lately his boss is giving him the worst jobs that cause the most pain. His surgery was almost 8 months ago and he's never had one single day where he's felt 'good'. Well he did have one and he ended up in the ER a few hours later with the mini-stroke. Sigh.

If you're out there and reading this and still praying for Chad. Thank-You.

Thank-You for always thinking of us. Thank you for continuing to pray for improvement as each day passes and of course, the biggest prayer of all is that he is and remains cancer free, forever and ever - Amen. 

Much Love
The Cavitt's.


  1. <3. Love and prayers you guys. I am sorry that Chad is hurting. :(

  2. Sorry how much he is hurting..I had to deal with the Va and meds with my hubby and they suck.
    I will be praying as usual for this pain to subside, even just some would be wonderful.
    Sending all my love as always to you both

  3. Will keep the prayers coming for both of you.

  5. I am constantly praying for the Cavitts, and especially for Chad.
    I have had the same issues now for over a decade, and know what he is going through.
    It is nice that you support him through all of this. I think my family is tired of hearing about my issues and don't even listen any more.
    I will continue to pray and hope for the best. It would be great to get some answers, and I hope the VA gets those meds to him quickly.
    I cant imagine working while feeling like he does. God Bless him.

  6. So sorry to hear that Chad is still in pain. Hope he gets his meds soon and i am still praying for Chad and family.. Keep the faith God Bless You Both

  8. Prayers for healing your way. Hopefully the VA can get their act together as far as the RX goes...My father has had problems getting meds from the VA as well, it can be quite frustrating.
    Have a blessed day.
