2019-08-07 Living with Cancer Day 882

Today was almost identical to yesterday, another so-so day, no real issues getting up and going downstairs for breakfast. Like yesterday, I did start sweating a bit once I got downstairs. Since today is Chemo Infusion Day, I did not go for my morning walk, but instead I got ready for my appointment. For most of the day I will be in a recliner. My vitals were good and my pain locations were the shoulder/neck and the lower back region.

2019-07-25 Living with Cancer Day 871

Today was the first day after Chemo Treatment day, which normally is a very good day. This can not be said for today which turned out to be a so-so day.

Getting up, I had the usual light dizziness, stomach ache, and light sweating. Things changed during my upstairs morning routine which includes for Thursday some additional activities that triggered today for my pain levels and sweat to increase to the point that I had to rest upstairs for about 15 minutes before going downstairs.

2019-07-11 Living with Cancer Day 857

Today was a better day. I got up around 6:30 to start my morning routine early since ED a Docent college was joining my walk with Dean at 8:00. I had some light dizziness very little stomach ache but lots of sweating. In preparation to not have my shoulder plate’s pain get out of control, I decided to take a Dilaudid (8 mg) with my morning breakfast as it did yesterday. I was the only time took it, I could take it every 8 hours, but decided against it. Like yesterday relaxing in the recliner or being in bed did not drive the pain in to a high pain level. BTW, my Fentanyl Patches will be increased by another 50 mg that should take care of the shoulder pain.

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.
