2020-07-08 Living With Cancer – Day 1890

Today was the day about my right (bad) eye’s surgery result. Getting up in the morning I noticed that my left (good) eye’s vision was almost back to 100%, by the time we arrived at the clinic it was back to what it was before. Since the bad eye was covered up and therefore I was not able to get an idea was it fix or not. I had to wait until my appointment.

2020-07-07 Living With Cancer – Day1819

Quick Update about the Eye Surgery. We got there about 30 Minutes before our appointment. This was good to allow Dianne to find out she could wait during the surgery since the policy was no visitors with the patient. I was able to get an exception. After being submitted to my preparation room, it took about 90 minutes answering questions, signing papers, get dressed for surgery, and getting hydrated and other pre-medication.

2020-07-06 Living With Cancer – Day 1818

Today turned out to be a much different day from those in the past. After getting up, instead of my morning walk, I went for a Blood Draw to check on Platelets count, in preparation for my eye surgery. It turned out the count of 45 was too low. As a precaution that the count is to low, I was already scheduled for a Platelet transfusion at the local Hospital.

Today started off recuperating from last night’s not feeling well. I spend all morning resting, eating only toast and drinking tea. After lunch it was time to get ready to go to UCSF’s COVID Test Site on Laurel Heights Campus in San Francisco. After returning home, I rested some more to ensure full recovery.

2020-07-04 Living With Cancer – Day 1816

Today started as a excellent day, but ended not on a good note. Health-wise my pain levels were acceptable for most of the day, if needed, such as after my walk, my breakthrough pain medication was taken care of it. As to my eye issue with the reduced clarity, it contiues to deteriorate as time moves on. MY bad eye is of little help with my combined vision. I am looking forward to my eye surgery.

Today was a excellent day, more exact, the Best Birthday Celebration ever, more on this later. Health-wise my pain levels were staying where I have expected them too be, at the normal range around three/two, peaking only a few times to four/three. No surprise here. The pain level behaved as it should during my walk, my resting and being active, etc.

2020-07-01 Living With Cancer – Day 1813

Today was a interesting and good day, health-wise my pain level stayed around three/two peaking only a few times to four/three. The low level is due to sitting in the car for 4 hours and exam rooms for another 1 1/2 hours. Getting home I did start moving around when ever I could to make up for the earlier sitting.

Today was a so-so day, health-wise I did not have a good night because of bone pain in my left heal, every hour on the hour for about five minutes, starting at midnight and ending around 05:00. For the morning the level was between three/two and four/three. The highest it got to was five/four at the end of my morning walk.
