Today was a not a bad day, it was almost a good day. Being Sunday, I did not have to rush getting things going.

Today was a good day. We had an early start with no dizziness or stomach issues. The reason for the early start was a scheduling issue, with me having a 10:00 appointment. By getting up at 7:00 I had enough time for getting dressed, and having a good breakfast, and got ready for our walk, all before 8:00. The morning walk was a good, no problem, we added a half block one way, making it one block and it took us 45 minutes as before. Getting back home I rested for a bit before getting ready for Dean to pick me up for my 10:00 Chemo Teach.
