i'm glad you are headed the right way! keep up the good job.

one note about cancer meds, i guess it depends on the type of cancer but my mother who passed aug 3rd this year (who would never take meds - even for a broken bone once) was towards the last few months taking 280mg of oxy 3 times a day, with liquid morphine sulfate for breakthrough, and wearing 4 fentanyl patches at the same time, and still hurting. i felt so bad closer to the end, and those were high doses, but it was the closest thing to relief she got.
