2019-01-20 Living with Cancer – Day 685

                                                                                                                                                      Today was another ***so-so*** day, starting off the way the last seven days did. Getting up, I noticed tightness in my shoulder which was hurting as well, something that I had not before. The tightness/ain stayed around for most of the day, even after resting at home. In the past, I would take some Tylenol for the pain, which I did but it did not help today. Besides the pain, my mouth was filled with some bad taste. I have had this before and was told that it is a side effect mostly from the chemo treatment. Guess I will have to live with it for now.

2019-01-20 – Nature Photography – Our Backyard Friends

The forecast for the day was on and off rain showers, which eliminate walking and taking outdoor pictures. Therefore I took Dianne’s suggestion to take today’s PICTURES of our Backyard Friends, a Squirrel and Scrub Jay which liked eating some nuts we leave for them. I had to wait sometime before they both decided to show up, the good news they did show up. The negative part of taking the photos is that I did not have a longer lens for my Sony SLT-A77, maybe I should have used my Panasonic DC-ZS70 or Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ80 camera. There is always – next time!

2019-01-19 Living with Cancer – Day 684

Today was a GOOD day, which is also called a so-so day and has become our routine day. Talking about routine, taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) around 3:00 to 4:00 AM as a preventive measure is working very well. However, I still have to deal with the sweating side effect, flushing the radiation toxin when being a bit active.

2019-01-18 Living with Cancer – Day 683

Today was another so-so day, which seems to be for now a routine day. Taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) around 3:00 to 4:00 AM as a preventive measure seems to be working very well. However I still have to deal with the sweating side effect, flushing the radiation toxin when being a bit active. There is no real trigger, the one I can repeat is walking up the stairs, however, my morning walk does not always trigger it. I may sweat during the walk, or at the end, but there are as many days I don’t sweat during my morning walk or at the end. I have not been able to identify a sure repeatable pattern.

2019-01-18 – Nature Photography, The day after the Rain

The first day without rain. Today’s subject was The day after the Rain. All PICTURES were taken outside around my house catching the sky with different cloud formation. There are a few photos that show a heavy overcast with the sun trying to break through. Tomorrow we should see a clearer sky for a bit as the rain will be moving in again for Sunday.

2019-01-17 Living with Cancer – Day 682

Today was another so-so day, I continued with yesterday’s new text on taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) at 4:00 AM as a preventive measure. It has worked today as well, day two of the new text. As with yesterday, I had to deal with sweating without having been active. And as to my Shoulder and Lower Back discomfort/Pain, it started to show up after I returned home from my morning walk and stayed active until for most of the rest of the day.

2019-01-16 Living with Cancer – Day 681

Today was another so-so day, I tried something new, I took my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) at 4:00 AM as a preventive measure. It seemed to have worked since neither showed up all day. However, instead, I had to deal with sweating without having been active. As to my Shoulder and Lower Back discomfort/Pain, it started to show up just before the end of my morning walk and stayed active until the resting for a bit after lunch.
