2020-01-30 Living with Cancer Day 1058

Healthwise, this being the 4th day of the new treatment, the main side effect is dozing off and dizziness. As to the pain locations and levels, no change from the days before. I can walk with the cane for about 5 to 10 minutes depending on the activity. If I move around too much my lower backstops me from doing more.

Today started off where the pain left me last night and all night. Besides the pain there was no signs of dizziness or nausea in the morning.

2018-06-02 Recovery Day 453

Today’s posting is short and can be summed up as having had an excellent day. Before providing the details, let me mention that today was a day spend around the Vacaville Premium Outlets Stores. All the walking was done around the stores.
Starting with the health part, no complains, no signs of dizziness or nausea this morning. After Breakfast and morning medication it was time for a 45 minute drive to Vacaville, arriving in time for the opening store hours. We spend about 9 hours all together driving and shopping. From a health perspective I watched my pain levels very carefully. The moment some pain surfaced I would slow down and/or sit-down until it was under control. I was lucky there were not many instances of the pain breaking through. As I said, an excellent day.
