2018-06-29 Recovery Day 480

Another good day, after a slow start. Waking up at my normal time I did not feel good, Dianne made me stay in bed with taking a ZoFran to get my no stomach aches settle. It worked, by 7:00 my stomach aches and dizziness were down to the normal levels. I started to get ready for my morning walk with Dean, when I got a text message from him. It said:

Hey I can’t walk today. Had an overnight stay at Kaiser fill you in on the details when I get out

Dean believed that he would be released around lunch, I therefore decided to go ahead with my morning walk alone.

Today was another good day, no stomach aches or dizziness. After my breakfast and morning medication I went for my morning walk with Dean. As mention yesterday I switched from Tylenol to Aleve Liquid Gels regarding the pain/discomfort with my shoulder blades and hips. Since it worked yesterday I decided to go with it for now.

2018-06-27 Recovery Day 478

Today was a good day, before getting up I controlled my stomach aches with ZoFran. After my breakfast and morning medication I went for my morning walk without Dean who on Wednesdays is committed to other business. As the pain/discomfort with my shoulder blades and hips, today instead of take some Tylenol to lower the pain level, I have taken Aleve Liquid Gels. Alice, who is a R.N./O.C.N and a friend, visited me yesterday for lunch, during our conversation she recommended to switch from Tylenol to Aleve to see if that helped. Today taken Aleve for the first time seem to have lower the pain level longer then Tylenol had done lately.

2018-06-26 Recovery Day 477

Today was a better day, I controlled my stomach aches with taken ZoFran. After a light breakfast and my morning medication I decided to go for my morning walk with Dean. My only other health related issue is the pain/discomfort with my shoulder blades and hips. Like before I take some Tylenol which by the time my walk is over has the pain under control. Since the last few days this seemed no longer to work as good.

2018-06-25 Recovery Day 476

Today was not a good day, it started with stomach aches that would not go away. After a light breakfast and my morning medication I decided to go for my morning walk, hoping that the walk would help. As it turns out it helped a little bit. However, what I forgot was to take a Zofran which when I finally took it helped for awhile. The aches came back shortly after lunch, as well as a light headache. I also stated to have my shoulder pain back. It was enough for me to shut things down and rest for awhile.

Today forecast showed a drop in temperature to about 95F (35C) which was welcome news. However, we did play it safe by going for our morning walk right after breakfast. Heath-wise, no issues getting up and for most of the day, not counting the normal ache and pain part of the regular activities. Overall it was a good day with minimum pain issues.

2018-06-23 Recovery Day 474

Today started of to be not a good day, however things changed to the better. Waking up was not a problem as I got up about every 45 to 60 minutes starting around midnight. I did finally get a bit of sleep around 6:00 getting up at 8:00. I had a light breakfast, taking my morning medication and got ready to join the Relay for Life of the Delta @ the Los Medanos College in Pittsburg. By the time we got to the relay my dizziness had disappeared and the back and hip pains were at acceptable levels.

2018-06-22 Recovery Day 473

Today was another great day. The day started with our bed moving around 12:41 AM thanks to a 3.4 Earthquake in Oakley, about 10 miles from our place. I got up at 7:00 with no signs of dizziness, had a light breakfast before taking my morning medication. Again, like yesterday the goal was to leave at 8:30 instead of 9:00 to beat the heat.

2018-06-21 Recovery Day 472

Today was a very good day. Sleeping was not an issue, except that around 1 o’clock I was woken up by some loud screaming from the house next door. It took some time to get back in to my rhythm to sleep. I started my day at 7:00 with a light breakfast to overcome dizziness. Since the goal was to leave at 8:30 instead of 9:00 to beat the heat, it was important to figure out was I health wise ready.
