Today was NOT a good Day, it started with dizziness, upset stomach, sweating and a hell of a headache when I got up.

The rain didn’t last long, I therefore went out and started my walk. However, I had to cut my walk short because of my stomach cramps and headache became unbearable.

It did not last long, we are back to the bad days. It started right after getting up around 8:15, I got very dizzy and my stomach was rumbling and would not settle down.

2019-03-27 Living with Cancer – Day 751

As to my activities, like the last few days, there were not many. However today I spend most of my ay inside the cancer center on a recliner to get my chemo infusion. I was able to take some PICTURES during my treatment of the IV Pole.

After my treatment, Dianne took me home. I rested which helped to keep my shoulder and back pain in check, however for about 30 minutes sweat returned. After the sweating stopped I start with the daily processing of my pictures and working on my Living with Cancer and Photography blog.

For the rest of the day my activities were the same as always, watching some TV in the background when working on my blog, today I had to continue to work on my blogs after dinner since I had little time before dinner because my treatment did not end until 4:00. After dinner, having finished my blog entries, I watch some TV or a Movie before calling it a day.

In summary, overall today was another so-so day.
