2019-04-14 Living with Cancer Day 769

Today was another good Day. Being Sunday, I slept in until 9:00. As to my dizziness, and stomach cramps they were hardly noticeable, however, the sweating part was at its highest output. The good news, the sweating did stop after half an hour. For the rest of the day, none of the three problem areas showed up. As to my energy level, it varied depending on my activity. Walking around to take some pictures took quite some energy requiring me to rest to charge my system back up.

2019-03-11 Living with Cancer – Day 735

Today was a better day. For starters getting up early to go for our morning walk at 9:00 instead of 10:00 is actually two hours earlier not one. I leave it to you to figure out how the change to Daylight Saving time affected the calculation. Getting up I had to deal with Sweat, Dizziness and Stomach issues.

2019-03-04 Living with Cancer – Day 728

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.

2019-03-03 Living with Cancer – Day 727

Today was a better day, I still have had some light stomach cramps and encountered some Dizziness. As to my shoulder pain, it increased as the day progressed, however, it was not bad enough to take some Dilaudid. Getting up around 8:00 I had a light breakfast with tea before I encounter my dizziness to increase. I instead rested for the day to see what tomorrow will bring.

2019-03-03 – Nature Photography – Birds – A woodpecker dropping by

This set contains a number of photos of a red-shafted northern flicker that dropped in at our backyard this morning.

I was lucky to get that many photos of our guest since normally by the time one of us noticed that we have a rest and me getting my camera ready, he/she have taken off. Not today!

2019-02-03 Living with Cancer – Day 699

Today was a so-so day. For most part of the day I had to deal with either stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. Like yesterday I was able to get some things done, but at a slower pace.

2019-01-22 Living with Cancer – Day 687

Today was another bad day, it was not as bad as yesterday, but bad enough that I had to stay home and monitor my Temperature since I woke up with 100.5F. Taking Tylenol I got to down to 98.4F, but after a few hours, it was back up at 99.F. Besides my shoulder were in pain, I also had stomach issues, and my mouth was filled with some bad metallic taste.

2019-01-22 – Nature Photography – Our Backyard Friends, Set 2

Today was health-wise a very bad day, limiting me to stay home. Therefore my photo subjects were also limited. I decided to take another set of PICTURES featuring our Backyard Friends, a Squirrel, and many different birds. I had hoped to get more photos, but sometimes you don’t get what you want.

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!

2019-01-20 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.
