2018-06-14 Recovery Day 465

For starters today was a good day. The day started like most others, no signs of dizziness or nausea, and the pain level in my shoulder was at normal level. After breakfast and taking my medication I started watching the first half of the World Cups opening game, Russia vs Saudi Arabia. After that it was time for my morning walk with Dean. Before going into the details of my activities today, let me finish my health status during the day.

2018-06-10 Recovery Day 461

For starters today was not a good day. Getting up there were no signs of dizziness or nausea. However, there was pain everywhere, upper and lower back, hip, knee and foot joints. In the past walking would help lowering the pain, not today. Trying to rest did not help. In addition to the pain, I would have stomach pains every once in awhile.

Health-wise things did improved. Getting up without any signs of dizziness or nausea. I had my Breakfast and morning medication about 30-45 minutes later. My shoulder was at a normal level and no hip nor no bone pain at all, which was good. However, around mid-afternoon I had some light dizziness or nausea until I move around a bit more.

2018-03-13 Recovery Day 372

Today was a better day then yesterday, but still not a good day. Like yesterday there is not much to write about. Again, like yesterday I did not get out of bed until 08:30 because of stomach pains that started at 4:00. After getting up I got ready for my morning walk with Dean. We were lucky that the rain had stopped for our walk. After returning from our walk I had a shower and got ready for the Cancer Support Group meeting.

2018-03-12 Recovery Day 371

Today was a very bad day. There is not much to write about. I did not get out of bed until 10:30 because of stomach pain. After getting up I spend some time outside enjoying the sun. After lunch I went with Dean to Lowes and CostCo. Getting back home my stomach started to act up again. It got so bad that I had to lay down for the rest of the day.

The temperature this morning was like yesterday, very cold. Getting back home I had a FaceTime call with Ray. After the call I spend some time resting before getting ready for lunch.

2018-02-18 Recovery Day 349

Today was another so-so day. Like yesterday, after getting up I noticed dizziness and lightheadedness. I took the medication for it so that I could eat my breakfast and go with Dianne and Denise as planned to IKEA. Being a long weekend and Sunday the traffic was very light. The trip to IKEA was mainly for Denise since she needed a few things for work that only IKEA has. I just went for the walk along, yes walk, since walking through IKEA is almost as long as my morning walk.
