2019-04-15 Living with Cancer Day 770

Today was a bad Day. Getting up this morning all bad symptoms were present, dizziness, stomach cramps, and sweating. In addition to the standard symptoms I had a new one; a sore throat. The good news, all symptoms, except the sore throat, had stopped after my morning walk. The good news did not last long, after returning from my trip to the post office I started to cough. For the rest of the day, I had to deal with a sore throat and a cough.

2019-04-07 Living with Cancer Day 762

Today was Not a Great Day, it was the direct opposite from yesterday. The day started late, around 9:00, with some light dizziness, stomach cramps, and sweating. The symptoms stayed around for most of the morning after lunch only the dizziness and some stomach issues hung around for the rest of the day. As to my shoulder and hip pains, the only showed up depending on the activity I was active in. In summary, health-wise today was a very Bad Day.

2019-02-25 Living with Cancer – Day 721

Today was not a good day, it seems to go in cycles, 2 good days, followed by two bad days, and back to the start with two good days and so on. Today started off with sweat and stomach cramps. The good news my dizziness was very light. As to my shoulder pain, it was at a low level, however, I got two new pain levels, running for under my arm towards my chest (ribcage) on both sides. Resting helped to get the pain level down.

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.

2019-01-18 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.

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.
