2019-10-07 Living with Cancer Day 943

Today was another Not So Good Day. I got up again round 7:30 to do my morning chores before going downstairs. Getting downstairs my headache from yesterday was back, this time at a much lower level. Today, the walk was very taxing on my system, I therefore rested watching some recorded TV games such as the NFL Raiders game, and the Bundesliga game by Dortmund.

2019-06-09 Living with Cancer Day 827

Today was not a good day! It all started when trying to get up around 8:00 and have breakfast. My stomach acted up and dizziness hit me. I check my vitals which were fine with my temperature being a bit high at 99.1F. I stayed in bed until 10:00, before getting up a second time Dianne brought me breakfast. After breakfast I spend a short time in my office only to get light-headed, returning back to my bed for a short period before going downstairs.

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.

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.
