Today was another good day, again, health-wise the pain levels were not the problem. The problem was again my eyesight, bright sunlight causing very low contrast in my good left eye, making it difficult to read my mail or compose any document, even when using the night-mode, white text on black background.
It is hard to report from the health side when there is little if any change. Since the reports are positive it is great to just report, the same as the day before. I do take my vitals, blood pressure, weight, pulse oximeter and temperature, twice a day, and they look good.
My pain levels this morning were very normal, meaning for the shoulder the pain level was three and two for my lower back. After my morning walk the pain level increased slightly to level of four and three respectively.
Today, after a good night sleep I woke up with my shoulder pain location having moved a bit lower with a level of four. The lower back pain level was at one. After breakfast the pain levels increased to five and two for a short time, until I got dressed when they dropped to three and one. After my visit to the cancer center the levels raised again by one point.
Today, after a good night’s sleep, I woke up with my shoulder at a pain level four and my lower back at a level three. After breakfast, the pain levels drop to three and two respectively. The pain stayed that way for most of the day, increased when active, and dropping when resting.
Today’s pain was very different. Starting after waking up, my back pain was already at level three. The shoulder blade pain had moved to the center of my back, more along the spine line, with a level of five. In addition, I had abdomen pain for a short time at a level three. The back and spine pain stayed around for most of the day at a level three when resting. Moving around in general with increases of one pain point.
Pain wise it was not a good start, woke up around 2:30am with pain at level 6 in my left foot, lasting about 2 hours. The pain levels after getting up were higher than yesterday, 2 for my lower back and 5 for my shoulders. The levels dropped during my walk and for the rest of the day stayed between 1-2 for the lower back and 3 to 4 for the shoulder plates. Overall not a bad day for pain.
Like yesterday, I woke up with my shoulder blade pain at a level 3 and lower back a level 1. During the day, when active, the shoulder pain increased up to a level 4 and the lower back pain increased up to level 2. The main reason for the lower levels during the day was because I spend most of the time sitting. Upon resting for awhile, the lower back pain even dropped to a level 0, for a short period of time.
Today I woke up with lower levels of pain, with my shoulder blade pain at a level 3 and lower back a level 1. During the day, when active, the shoulder pain increased up to a level 5, depending on the length of activity and the lower back pain increased up to level 2. Resting helped lower the shoulder back to level 3 and lower back to level 1. Upon resting for awhile, the lower back pain even dropped to a level 0 for a short period of time.

Health-wise no changes from yesterday.
Activity-wise, a slow start but as time progressed I got my morning and early afternoon work done before we relaxed and watched a movie and some TV episodes. Overall not a bad day.
