Today was another GOOD day, it started with getting up early to have breakfast at Mel’s Diner before going shopping at the Farmers Market in Brentwood. Before going home, we stopped at Walmart to do some more shopping. After getting home and having put away the groceries, etc., Dianne and Denise went back out. I stayed home because my shoulder had cramped up from all that walking around the Farmers Market. I was able to watch the Soccer game of Bayern vs Dortmund, which Bayern won 4:0.

Today was a Good Day. After getting downstairs from my morning chores, my sweat issue was back, this time it was a lot of sweat. No stomach issues today, nor dizziness. I took my temperature which was 97.3F, up from 96.41F taken 2 hours before. Since it is Thursday, I collected the garbage before going downstairs. I had a good breakfast, but the sweating did not stop which made it difficult to dress up for my morning walk. As it turns out, Dean informed me that it was very cold and the wind speed was too strong to walk.

Today was another good Day. Being Sunday, I slept in until 9:00. As to my dizziness, and stomach cramps they were hardly noticeable, however, the sweating part was at its highest output.
