                                                                                                                                                      Today was another ***so-so*** day, starting off the way the last seven days did. Getting up, I noticed tightness in my shoulder which was hurting as well, something that I had not before. The tightness/ain stayed around for most of the day, even after resting at home. In the past, I would take some Tylenol for the pain, which I did but it did not help today. Besides the pain, my mouth was filled with some bad taste. I have had this before and was told that it is a side effect mostly from the chemo treatment. Guess I will have to live with it for now.

2019-01-13 – Landscape Photography, Marsh Creek Reservoir

Another day trying to take pictures of Mount Diablo from another location that was not used before. I decided to go to the Marsh Creek Reservoir.

2019-01-15 Living with Cancer – Day 680

Today was another so-so day, it started around 4:00 AM with some Stomach and Dizziness discomfort. I took my medication for it and went back to sleep. By the time I got up, around 8:00 AM, things were a bit better for me to have a light breakfast. Things did not improve, I had my soup for lunch, hoping that this may help. It did but not until about 2:00 PM at which time the discomfort and pain went down. It lasted to about 5:00 PM after which the shoulder and lower back pain surfaced again. Since I just got home from the support group meeting, I rested which helped to get things back under control.

I continued with trying to take pictures of Mount Diablo from new locations was again not an option.
