TGIF – Plans for today
Got up a bit early for an appointment at the Cancer Center for some hydration before the weekend. Having our weekly lunch with some of my Premenos friends that I worked with from 1990 to 2000.

Getting Up
In addition to my regular light stomach aches and dizziness discomfort, I woke up with a light heartburn type of symptom.

After my morning upstairs routine I went downstairs. My stomach aches turned into pains. I therefore had only toast and chamomile tea for breakfast. By the time to leave for the Cancer Center the stomach aches disappeared, but the every so often heartburn continued.

At the Infusion lap
I got set up for hydration on time, it will take about 2 to 2 1/2 hours, leaving enough time to be back home and get ready for the lunch with my ex-colleagues.

Lunch with the boys
For today’s lunch Bill and Greg came and Larry joined us via FaceTime. We had some update about Larry’s status, which was very positive, but he still has a long way to go before he has fully recovered.

We also talked about the housing cost, especial for 55+ communities and their HOA fees. All in all we had some good conversations.

Resting to regain energy
After the boys left, I rested since lunch did take some energy out of me. I watch some TV shows I had recorded. At the same I worked on this app (Day One) to figure out how you add events. I started to doze off again shortly after 3:00, which is a pattern that started after I started with the DARA treatment and has continued with the Empliciti treatment.

Calling a Day
As dinner approached I somewhat had not much of an appetite. I ate half of my meal, but all of my dessert.

After dinner, I rested and reviewed today’s postings adding the last paragraph that has become a standard.

The day ended as most of them, watching some TV until it was time to call it a day.
