2019-07-21 Living with Cancer Day 867

Today was a repeat of yesterday, another bad day. The pain that started yesterday on my right side around the hip and buttocks, has not gone away, the pain level is changing depending on the activity. Since today is Sunday, I stayed in bed until about 9:00. Getting up I had the usual light dizziness, stomach ache and again no sweating. My shoulder and hip pains were at the normal acceptable levels.

2019-07-09 Living with Cancer Day 855

Today was not a good day. I got up around 6:50 to start my morning routine, and like yesterday, after getting up I was hit by dizziness, stomach aches, sweating and shortness of breath. I took some oxygen to overcome the shortness of breath. At 8:00 Dean and I went for our walk. As I mentioned before the portable oxygen concentrator only pushes O2 out into the nose when it detects me breathing in. I have always been a mouth breather. It takes me some effort to remember, also when talking, the mouth is the main input for the O2. These two handicaps make it harder to walk outside, forcing me to stop a few times to take in some O2.

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. I was able to have breakfast and take my medication, but needed to rest as I was fighting all day long the feeling of having to throw up in addition to dealing with my dizziness and stomach issues. The only good news, I did not have to deal with sweating.

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.
