2018-07-15 Recovery Day 496

Today was a better day. No more diarrhea resulting in a good night sleep. I started the day with a good breakfast, still following the BRAT diet. During the day my stomach would still rumble up every so often, not really a big problem. On the positive side my energy level started to raise. It looks like my bout with the diarrhea seems to be over.

2018-07-14 Recovery Day 495

Today was another so-so day. The good news the new stronger medication kept the diarrhea in check, especially during the night. I still had to get up three times. During the day my stomach would not stop actively rumbling for a lack of a better word. On the negative side, my energy level was rather low. The good news I had no diarrhea during the day. Hopefully it will stay that way during the night and tomorrow.

2018-07-11 Recovery Day 492

Today was a so-so day. I had diarrhea only in the early morning around 2:30. No diarrhea for the rest of the day! However my energy level was way down. Dianne accredits this to a lack of hydration. Not taking chances I stayed on the special BRAT diet. My oncology doctor, talking with Dianne agreed for me to come in and get to IV hydration.

2018-07-07 Recovery Day 488

Today was not a good day. It all started last night when I woke up because of diarrhea a side effect
I did go for my morning walk with Dean, but it was limited to be close to the house in case I needed to rush home. I was somewhat lucky since I was able to walk for about 30 minutes and even took some PICTURES.

The rest of the day I rested, taking my medication and followed the BRAD diet. For dinner I had banana slices on toast. Hopefully I will have recovered enough to be able to have a good night sleep.

That is it for today, in summary, the day was overall a bad day.

Today was a good day, which started with a good sleep. I got up the regular time, Dianne made us a good breakfast. Carsten and I got ready for our walk with Dean. Health wise no complains, no stomach problems or bone pains, only my shoulder discomfort. I rested, if that is what you can called it, for most of the day, the Chaise Lounge Chair, doing some little things, including working on my computers remotely.

2018-06-29 Recovery Day 480

Another good day, after a slow start. Waking up at my normal time I did not feel good, Dianne made me stay in bed with taking a ZoFran to get my no stomach aches settle. It worked, by 7:00 my stomach aches and dizziness were down to the normal levels. I started to get ready for my morning walk with Dean, when I got a text message from him. It said:

Hey I can’t walk today. Had an overnight stay at Kaiser fill you in on the details when I get out

Dean believed that he would be released around lunch, I therefore decided to go ahead with my morning walk alone.
