2018-10-18 Recovery Day 591

Good news, today was again a great day! Everything back to normal, if anyone with active cancer treatment, will very have a normal day. Anyway, health-wise, things were good today, no dizziness or stomach issues all day. A little bit of bone pain in my ankles and hips, but not as bad as yesterday and before.

2018-08-22 Recovery Day 534

Let’s start by explaining why this posting was not available yesterday – IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY HEALTH ISSUE!!! It was the lack of time as you will see in a moment.

Today (22nd August) was a good day, again with some unexciting start of the day. Getting up I had to rush to the bathroom because of some dry-heaving which lasted about 5 minutes. I went back to bed for an hour and getting a second time up, no dizziness and stomach queasiness for the rest of the day, which was important since I had signed up for some late evening session with the East Bay Regional Park District part of my Docent training.

2018-08-17 Recovery Day 529

Today another good, but busy day. Still, the day started with dizziness and stomach queasiness after getting up. See earlier posts starting with posting 2018-08-10 Recovery Day 522 for details. As to the Transderm Scop (Scopolamine) patch, the verdict is still not out if it works or not. I will keep using it until 21 August, the end of this cycle, to see if the patch is working.

2018-08-14 Recovery Day 526

Another good day with dizziness and my stomach queasiness when first getting up. Taking Zofran and Meclizine got it under control before breakfast. The added Transderm Scop (Scopolamine) patch should start working by tomorrow. Tomorrow is my treatment day, the first within my 4-week cycle, 1 on 3 off. It will be interesting to see how this will affect the good days I had lately.

One side effect I encountered today was that after lunch I was falling asleep unexpectedly and constantly. This happened during the support group meeting, at home during the dinner and writing this posting. It took some energy, especially writing this article, to stay on course.

Health wise, today second day after Wednesday’s all-day treatment cycle #5, started of like yesterday with no issues, no signs of dizziness or nausea in the morning.

Concord Hills Regional Park – Project 365

On my way to Concord I stopped by at Willow Pass Road/Avila Road to take a few photos of the old Concord Naval Weapons Station land that will become Concord Hills Regional Park. 60% of the former base, totaling over 2,600 acres of grasslands, oaks and spectacular views in the hills between Concord and Pittsburg, will become part of the East Bay Regional Park District. The plan for new park is to offer hiking and mountain bike trails, camping, equestrian facilities, preservation of the old Navy buildings, or all of the above. There is also the possibility for a joint visitors center with the National Park Service honoring the history of the Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial.

Brentwood’s Delta Theater – Project 365

Last day of portrait orientation photography. This set is all about the Brentwood Delta Theater. It was built in the 1930’s and was originally a one screen with a stage in front of it which doubled to show plays. In the early–1990’s it was turned into a two screen theater. In the early to mid–1990’s it was a second run theater, which did moderate business at best. After closing down for a couple months CineLux bought the theater in 2000 and has been open and doing well ever since.

Oak Tree at Oakley’s Central Park – Project 365

Continuing with the portrait orientation photography, today’s set is all about the old preserved Oak tree that is part of the Oakley’s Central Park next to City Hall. The city’s name “oak” comes from the abundance of oak trees, while the suffix “-ley” comes from the Old English word for “field” or “meadow”.

Todos Santos Plaza, Concord – Project 365

Normally I go to Concord on Tuesday, but this week it was today, Wednesday. This allowed me to take photos of Todos Santos Plaza, which on Tuesday is used for the Farmers Market. It is very hard to get photos of the plaza with altho vendors and people. Continue reading »

The Belshaw Mansion – Project 365

Today I visited the Belshaw Mansion on 705 E Street in Antioch. The home was constructed for state senator Charles M. Belshaw. It was later sold to state assemblyman Robert Easley, then to the Baldocchis, who divided it into apartments for their family members. The house has been restored by it current owners to the original inside configuration. However, looking at the original structure one can see that the roof, especially the tower roof have undergone major structure changes. I like the old structure over the current castle look.
