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.

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.

Today was another so-so day. Like yesterday, the day started of fine, but after my morning walk the back pain level increased more then usual. Resting for awhile and taken two Tylenol bought the level back down. However, after returning from short car ride to drop-off a lawnmower my stomach acted up a bit. I laid down for an hour which helped with my stomach. Like yesterday I did not go for my afternoon walk to give my system time to recover.

Today was again a so-so day. The day started of fine, but after my morning walk the back pain level increased more then usual. Laying down for awhile and taken two Tylenol bought the level back down. However, after returning from a car ride and some shopping the back pain level increased again. I laid down again for almost two hours to get the pain level down. I did not go for my afternoon walk to give my back more time to recover from what ever causes the increase in pain. As to my foot and knee pains, they were again absent.
