Thanks Shay and Mush! I am glad to be back! It'll probably take me a couple of days to catch up because I don't want to leave hubby on his own for too long.

Mush....I was taking 20mg oxycontin 3x/day for about 2 years and Vicodin 7.5/500 4-6x/day for BT. The old regimine wasn't cutting it anymore, so my PM (who is the absolute best!) upped my oxycontin to 30mg/a.m., 20mg/mid-day, and 30mg/p.m. He also changed my BT meds to Norco 10/325 up to 6 max/day. The way he chose to prescribe the oxycontin was all 10mg tabs, so I wouldn't have 2 separate Rx's for 20's and 30's. But he told me I could adjust them as I needed to, to get the best coverage. I've found, so far, that spreading it out over 4 doses a day has worked best. (20mg x4) Hope that made sense. If I remember correctly, Pepper takes hers that way too.

Thank you both for the kind wishes and I know my husband will get through this. We both will, with time and prayer. I am so grateful for the prayers from my pain family. It makes all the difference in the world when you have so many praying for you.

I'm signing off for now, so thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. I'll probably be on late tonight, after hubby goes to bed. Hugs, CMP/MM
