Today was not a good day:
- on the good side:
- no bone pain, and
- very little swelling of feet and legs
- on the bad side:
- back and neck pain level up to 7, and
- some stomach cramps and pain
The night was good, I got up at 7:00, had a light breakfast. I rested until it was time for the workman to arrive around 8:30. After going over the work that needs to be done, I wend with my neighbors for our morning walk. After returning home from my walk I check with the workman and clarified a number of things. All this walking and standing around took a toll on my back and neck. I had to go inside and rested for the rest of the morning.
After lunch and for most of the afternoon, I rotated with resting for about 45 minutes and check on the work being done for about 15 minutes. I started to take Breakthrough medication again for the back pain. I had stop taken Dilaudid about 2 weeks ago since it was more of a discomfort. However, today it was pain that needed to be dealt with.
In summary today was not a good day. There is not much more I can add.
