2019-11-23 Living with Cancer Day 990

Today was a good day! It started at 6:30 with me watching Bayern München vs Fortuna Düsseldorf, which Bayern won 4:0. The game was over 8:15, just in time for me to be dressed and ready to go with Dianne and Denise to San Francisco for the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. This is the 37th Season and 20th Year at the Historic Cow Palace. Inside it is the recreation of Old London, the Docks, Nickelby Road, Victoria & Albert Music Hall, and Fish Street with all it pubs and restaurants serving English as well as other food common during the Dickens Period.

2019-04-13 Living with Cancer Day 768

Today was a good Day. For starters, I slept in until 9:00. As to my dizziness, stomach cramps and sweating they were hardly noticeable, especially the sweating part which seemed to be gone. To sum it up, for the whole day, none of the three problem areas showed up. However, after lunch, my system started to run low on energy, which had a side effect of dozing off every so often.

2018-12-31 Recovery Day 665

Today was yet another so-so day, I again slept until 9:00 and woke up with a sore throat which was less severe as it was yesterday. However, around 3:30 AM I had to get up quickly as I needed to vomit.

Back to getting up this morning; I went downstairs to have a light breakfast. Checking my temperature it showed being somewhat high. Taking some Tylenol brought the temperature down. As to my shoulder and lower back pain, it still was there. With all my ailments I stayed inside resting for the day, getting up every so often.

2018-10-22 Recovery Day 595

I am continuing with yet another great day! Health-wise, there has been a slight change regarding my left leg. The ankle’s pain location has moved up a bit and the hip pain got stronger. Walking does no longer help in reducing the pain level, the good news, it does not increase either. For now, all I can do is watch the next few days which way it will go.

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.
