As to my cough and sore throat it did not show up today. In summary, I had to deal all day with my shoulder and lower back pains.

2019-03-09 Living with Cancer – Day 733

Today was a bad day. Things got bad right from the start after getting up. Every one of my pain locations was active. I had taken Dilaudid hours before but it did nothing too in reducing my pain. In addition to the pain, I also had to deal with dizziness and stomach cramps. For the rest of the day the pain, dizziness and stomach cramps hung around at different levels. All I could do was resting and getting up every once in a while.

2019-03-03 Living with Cancer – Day 727

Today was a better day, I still have had some light stomach cramps and encountered some Dizziness. As to my shoulder pain, it increased as the day progressed, however, it was not bad enough to take some Dilaudid.

2019-03-02 Living with Cancer – Day 726

After breakfast we had an Easter Egg hunt. Denise had last night hidden some easter eegs and other easter related sweats hidden for Carsten to find. The reason for having the hunt so early was that Dieter and Carsten would miss the start of the Baseball season. Carsten was looking forward to the start since he was told that he would to be this year’s Pitcher, a position he really likes. After the hunt and before some of the bounty was eaten I was able to some PICTURES of Easter egg bounty.

After the hunt I rested which in my case actually means, sitting in my recliner and processing my pictures and working on my Living with Cancer and Photography blog entry with the TV running in the background to break the silence. Before I know it, Dinner time was approaching. After dinner we watched some TV until it is time to retire.

In summary, overall today was a better day.

Today was Treatment Day which is an all-day affair. It means that selecting a subject area for taking pictures off is difficult. I noticed, after settling in at the Infusion Room, that it still had the Ballon Figures that were left by Mark of the Cancer Support Group the week before. They became today’s subjects.

2019-02-27 Living with Cancer Day 723

Today was very bad day. I decided last night to continue with taking Dilaudid every 3 hours starting at 9:00 PM. After 3:00 AM most of my pain was gone, except my pain in my shoulder area, which hurt when I turned in my bed. I got up early at 7:00 since I needed to be ready at 8:30 for Dean to take me to the Cancer Center. However, getting dressed was rather painful as suddenly like yesterday all my pain points got active the more I moved. It was so bad That I was not sure I wanted to the Cancer Center for Treatment. I decided to go hoping that at least my resting during the all-day treatment would help.
