Today was a good day! Health-wise everything was OK starting the day. Thanks to Dianne, I had a great breakfast to start the day, making me forget a little bit of lower and shoulder pain. However, later during my morning walk with Dianne, my Arthritis Pain kicked in, more than before. Maybe it is time to take some Tylenol Arthritis Pain beforehand. As the day progressed my energy got better, and my pain levels returned slowly to normal. Overall the day was better than yesterday.

Today was a better day! Health-wise it was a repeat of yesterday, minus the morning dizziness. Starting my morning walk, the pain started again around my ankle, however, the level was not as high as yesterday. I continued my walk and the pain level decreased as long as I walked. However, at the end of my walk, my hips pain had increased. During the day both, ankle and hip pain showed up when I walked for a few minutes. In the afternoon I went to the local hospital for X-rays of my left ankle, as ordered by my doctor. Moving forward, Step 1, X-Rays (which I just did), if nothing is there we go to step 2, a PET/CT.

Today was another great day, great night sleep, great morning start. It could have been an excellent day, had it not been for my hips and shoulders pain for most of the day. The shoulder is from the spine surgery, whereas the hip pain is a side effect of the cancer treatment.
