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.
