2017-10-28 Recovery Day 236

Today was a bad day:

  • on the good side:
    • no bone pain
  • on the bad side:
    • back pain level at a level of 9
    • pain in my left foot
    • swelling of both legs, and
    • stomach issues

The night was a good night, no sleep issues. I got up at 7:00, had breakfast and rested, however I encounter some severe stomach pains, lucky for me they disappeared before I started my walk with Dianne. On my return form walking I needed to rest for awhile to reduce the Back Pain to an acceptable level before getting lunch ready. However, I again had severe stomach pains that lasted a few minutes.

After lunch I rested again as the level of my Back Pain did not had decreased. In addition my stomach’s pain would not settle down for most of the afternoon. The good news, at least the severe pains were gone. Around 2:00 Dianne joined me for my afternoon walk. On my return I spend the rest of the afternoon resting in my recliner with my legs up since the swellings were back. As to dinner, my stomach had settle down so I started to eat, but it did not last long, as my stomach started to act up halfway through the dinner.

In summary today was a bad day. I was not able to help Dianne outside in the backyard, specially since on Tuesday we have workers come to do some improvements on our walkway. Let’s hope that tomorrow is better.
