2017-11-19 Recovery Day 258

Today was good day:

  • on the good side:
    • no cancer related pain, and
    • no stomach issues
  • on the bad side:
    • left knee and foot pain
    • limited activity time, and
    • surgery related back pain

Like yesterday, there is not much to report for today. For a change we went out and had Breakfast at “The Big Bear Dinner”. After breakfast, before returning home, we did some shopping. Being back home we did some cleaning up of our front and backyard of stuff left behind by the contractor.

Since lunch was not to far away, I sat down reading my mail. I noticed a “Telegram” notification that Jamie Osborne has joined. Since I have lost touch with Jamie, I send him a quick welcome note and suggested that we should reconnect soon. Soon came quicker then I had hoped for. We had a Skype video session at lunch that was great. We ended with the promise to do this more often.

After the call, I went outside to help Dianne a little bit, where ever I could, with the cleanup. I also rested in the sunny part of the backyard which helped with my back, knee and foot pain. Yes, there were a number of pain location that you may wonder why I still call it a good day. The main reason for calling a good day is that even with the pain, which is manageable, I can do things, I am not out.

Denise and Dianne went out again, this time with out me. This allowed me to watch some of the Raider’s game, which they lost. When they came back Dianne and I went for our afternoon walk. Returning from the walk it was time for dinner which Denise has gotten for us. After dinner we watch a Christmas movie which allowed me to rested some more.

In summary, today was another good day. Yes, I have to deal with some pain again, but on the positive side no cancer related problems.
