Today was a OK day, I still have to deal with light stomach cramps, some dizziness and shoulder pain at the start of my day. Sometimes I also have a deal with sweating right after I got up and are dressed to go downstairs. Today I was a bit lucky as I did not sweat at the beginning but at the start of our morning walk. As to my shoulder pain, it increased as the day progressed, however, it was not bad enough to take some Dilaudid.
I got up around 8:00 and had a light breakfast with tea before I encounter my dizziness to increase. It did not stop my walk with Dean. The walk was not too bad, my shoulder and lower back pain increased a bit, a short break in walking stopped it from getting too high. Also during our walk taking PICTURES helped me with the pain since it was a break from walking.
Back from our walk. My stomach cramps and hip pains were at a high level. My shoulder and neck pains are not as bad but showed up at the end of the walk, also I started to sweat as I got back home. Overall the walk was not to bad. Yes, it was not perfect, but putting it in context, it was a good walk.
There is not much more to write about regarding my activities for the rest of the day. For now, my main task it to get the pain under control, if that means to rest because the pain levels are too high, so be it. Forcing to do something that causes the pain level to increase is wrong and will prolong the number of days I need to rest all afternoon.
The main task for today was to determine how much pain is breaking through requiring for now to take Dilaudid. With that in mind, I spend the rest of the day waiting and resting.
Resting actually means, sitting in my recliner and processing my pictures and working on my Living with Cancer and Photography blog entry with the TV running in the background to break the silence. Before I know it, Dinner time was approaching. After dinner, we watched some TV until it is time to retire.
In summary, overall today was a OK day.
