Because I took my meds about 10:30pm last night, I was able to fall asleep pretty quickly around 11:30pm. The key is taking the meds about an hour or so before you plan to go to sleep.
I woke up with some soreness so I did take two hydros for the pain. I can certainly say that the pain is subsiding more and more each day. Dad a good day and plan the same medication regiment this evening.
My wife continues to wash my head over the sink. Being a hair dresser, she is quite skilled at this and had washed the hair of clients in the past who had head injuries, stitches, etc. She is quite gentle but is trying to carefully remove some of the scabbing. The sink seems dotted with small pieces of scabbing. After she washes my head I take a shower being careful not to let the water pressure hit the top of my head.
