2019-01-21 Living with Cancer – Day 686

Today was a very bad day, it was so bad by the end of the day that I was not able to finish my work on the Living with Cancer and Photography blog entries until today.

The day started off OK, but it did not take long for the status to change quickly to bad. My shoulder was the first to start with tightening up which also started to hurt. In the past, I would take some Tylenol for the pain, which did nothing today. Next was my stomach, besides the pain, my mouth was filled with some bad metallic taste.
