Today was a excellent day, right from the start. No dizziness, stomach queasiness or bone pain all day long. The only pain encountered was some back pain and elevated shoulder pain due to the activity I did around lunch time. Taking two Tylenol took care of the back pain. As to the shoulder pain, the level dropped back to normal during my lunchtime rest.

2018-09-09 Recovery Day 552

Today was a so-so day. Starting with the health-related issues, for most of the day, there was no back pain. The morning started off with my stomach not feeling too good. I had breakfast hoping it would help, but it did not. Around 10:30 I decided to go with Dianne down to the waterfront for a short walk since this has in the past help with settling my stomach. It did work, for the rest of the day I was fine no more stomach issues.

Today was another great day. It was a busy day and health-wise, no dizziness, stomach queasiness or bone pain all day long. However, I still have to deal with my shoulder pain from the surgery. Today, because of my busy travel schedule, the shoulder pain was at the border of almost being too much, lucky for me the Tylenol did its trick.

2018-08-31 Recovery Day 543

Today got off to a rough start but turned out to be a GREAT one. I had to get up a bit earlier to make it for my 8:00 morning pickup. Because I started off rushing things, such as my breakfast, my system started to get overloaded. Slowing down got me back on track, ready to have a good day. My shoulder pain level was high but taken two Tylenol did the trick for the day. Health-wise I was fine all day, keeping my pain levels in check resting when needed and watching my movements during the outdoor activities.

2018-08-30 Recovery Day 542

Today was a OK day that started off good. Around lunchtime the pain in my shoulder acted up, it may have been because during my morning walk I moved my head too far back following a hawk putting on a good show. I noticed that as time progressed some low-level pain in my shoulder. However, it stayed at a low level until I ended my shopping at Home Depot before lunch. I got the pain under control with Tylenol and resting before I visited the Dentist.

2018-08-29 Recovery Day 541

Another good day that started not so good. I had trouble sleeping due to a sharp pain in my shoulder and lower back area. I had to take a Dilaudid again. By the time I got up the pain was manageable. As to the dizziness, stomach queasiness or bone pain, there were none. Since we had workers coming at 9:00 and it was Dean’s off day, I started my walk early around 7:45, for most of the walk there was no pain other than at the start.

2018-08-27 Recovery Day 539

Today was a good day that started with no dizziness, stomach queasiness or bone pain after getting up. Even the shoulder pain, a result of the spine surgery, was at a low pain level. However, it did feel pain on my right side of the area I fell on yesterday. As the day progress the stiffness did not disappear, actually, my shoulder pain level also increased. I seem to have overdone my activity instead of resting.

Today was another so-so day, it almost was a very bad day. Like yesterday, on the positive side, the day started with no dizziness, stomach queasiness or bone pain after getting up. However, on the shoulder pain side, a result of the spine surgery, things were so bad that I stayed in bed. Dianne even brought my breakfast, homemade McMuffin, up to me. To get the pain under control I took a Dilaudid (hydromorphone hydrochloride). I stayed in bed until lunchtime, by which the pain level was way down.
