how the term "Blog" came into use: "Web Log" seemed
awkward, so a condensed version was quickly adopted.
we are on the Web. Here I am recording remarkable aspects of experience.
That is a "log", assuming some influence of chronicity on
the entries. Web Log. My Blog.
September 19, 2022: Awakened at two hours into a dose of HYDROcodone by strong pain in an area distal from the First Thoracic Vertebrae, a place that had evidenced deep, dull pain on several occasions, but the character this time was sharp and intolerable, and unlike earlier episodes, did not respond to massage. Waited for a prescribed time to elapse, took another HYDROcodone dose, the effect of which was to dull the sharpness of pain, but not mask it entirely. Otherwise, weakness and poor balance increasingly problematic.
Prior to the awakening, left arm exhibited "vibrating" behavior that seemed to run the length of it, where I would imagine the nerves are. Over the past month or so the skin on that arm has progressively lost the ability to sense touch. The pain and sensory phenomena seem to me to be associated with the functions moderated by that Thoracic bone, which was identified by the PET scan as a locus of Metastaic Bone Cancer.
