  We had a follow-up with Panella today. He will not issue and order for the Cat Scan for at least another 6 weeks, said he was going off what Rathfoot sees. I have a lot of confidence in Rathfoot yet he cannot see into the lymph nodes and blood cells. Somehow I can't help but think this is a bad move, then again, it wouldn't be the first bad move now would it.

  I woke up with extreme fatigue today, slept almost all the way to Knoxville. I piddled around the house, dug a hole for a corner post by hand, planted some watermellon plants in a bale of straw I bought, and was about to weed a bit in the garden when I got slapped even harder by fatigue. For whatever reason I just couldn't keep myself going so I came into the house and sat down about 3pm and dosed off. The next thing I knew was Megan sitting on the couch doing her homework and she said Denise was home... it was 6:30pm. I figured that I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight but that isn't the case, I'll have no problem tonight.

  The neuropathy I thought was better, but today I see I spoke way too soon. Tonight it is as bad as it has ever been. I've made it all day with not enough pain to take pain pills until I awoke at 6:30, I had to take one. I just took another one right now. I cannot figure out what sparks these terrible bouts of fatigue but when they come they drop me like a rock. They remind me of when I took chemo or was in the middle of radiation... intense and out of the blue.
