2020-02-03 Living with Cancer Day 1062

Summary
Overall today was a more painful day. Also, I did fall asleep more often. I am told that this is a side effect of the Dilaudid. I have a choice, sleep or stay awake with pain.

Early Morning – 06:44:34 PST, 36°F Clear, Antioch, CA
My mornings are all the same, I wake up around 7:00 and are downstairs latest by 8:30. Today was that way almost that way, I woke up at 6:45 and downstairs at 8:00. I was a bit earlier since I had to be ready for pickup by Dianne at 9:00 for my 9:15 appointment.

Summary
Today was overall not a good day. It started off with some real bad pain, which reduced itself, but not enough to at least calling it a so-so pain day. I tried walking around to loosen the muscles, but that did the opposite, it causes more pain in my back. Hopefully, I will have a good sleep to recover from some of that pain.

Summary
Today was interesting from my health perspective. Overall my pain level was what I would call stable at a slightly higher level. However, trying to stay awake was not easy and, in the end, I just fell asleep going to bed very early.

Waking Up – 10:52:11 PST, 54°F Mostly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
I woke up around 6:00 and prepared my Weather update for Steve Paulson at KTVU. After that, I dozed off again to about 7:00. I watch some TV and worked on my overdue blog entries. I finally got up at 8:00. It was rather difficult since my pain level was rather high. I went downstairs at 8:30.

Weather: 32°F Freezing Fog
Location: 4410 Deermeadow Way, Antioch, CA, United States

Getting Up – 07:46:07 PST – 32°F Freezing Fog
I woke up around 6:30 but stayed in bed until 7:45 since it was just too cold, 34F (1C). Before going downstairs, I did my daily chores and spend some time in my office getting some items I need to use my other smart switches as a gang of two downstairs.

Today was another Not So Good Day. I got up again round 7:30 to do my morning chores before going downstairs. Getting downstairs my headache from yesterday was back, this time at a much lower level. Today, the walk was very taxing on my system, I therefore rested watching some recorded TV games such as the NFL Raiders game, and the Bundesliga game by Dortmund.

2019-09-10 Living with Cancer Day 916

Today was a so-so day. My day started off around 7:30 getting ready for my walk with Dean. I still have some stomach cramps and lightheadedness, which are less than yesterday. My vitals were, Blood Pressure 131/79 Pulse 57 and a temperature of 98.1F. By 4:00 PM the temperature has risen to 99.1F and stayed around for the rest of the day.

Moving around during the day was still a problem as the pain below my right hip, possible muscle pain, made it difficult to walk. The pain disperses when sitting down or resting in the recliner. As I mention yesterday, I will have to report this tomorrow to my Oncology doctor during my followup meeting.

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.
