Today’s Report is short since I spend most of the time getting things ready for tomorrow’s train ride from Martinez to Reno.
As to my health status, overall I felt good, my lower back dis hurt a bit more because of the extra walking and bending to get things together. I did get hydrated in the early afternoon, which will help, as well as a good night’s sleep will take care of those aches and pains.

Today was not a good day. For most part, today was a repeat of yesterday, dealing with stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. I had a hard time doing anything as I dozed off many times, which did not help to get things done. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

With all that rain today I selected to take photos of the Amaryllis that has not opened yet. The plant is currently in a pot which allowed me to move it to stay dry.
As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. Today I used only one directions for shooting.

Today was another so-so day, starting off the way the last seven days did. Getting up, I noticed tightness in my shoulder which was hurting as well, something that I had not before. The tightness/ain stayed around for most of the day, even after resting at home. In the past, I would take some Tylenol for the pain, which I did but it did not help today. Besides the pain, my mouth was filled with some bad taste. I have had this before and was told that it is a side effect mostly from the chemo treatment. Guess I will have to live with it for now.

Today was another so-so day, which seems to be for now a routine day. Taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) around 3:00 to 4:00 AM as a preventive measure seems to be working very well. However I still have to deal with the sweating side effect, flushing the radiation toxin when being a bit active. There is no real trigger, the one I can repeat is walking up the stairs, however, my morning walk does not always trigger it. I may sweat during the walk, or at the end, but there are as many days I don’t sweat during my morning walk or at the end. I have not been able to identify a sure repeatable pattern.

The first day without rain. Today’s subject was The day after the Rain. All PICTURES were taken outside around my house catching the sky with different cloud formation. There are a few photos that show a heavy overcast with the sun trying to break through. Tomorrow we should see a clearer sky for a bit as the rain will be moving in again for Sunday.

Today was another so-so day, I continued with yesterday’s new text on taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) at 4:00 AM as a preventive measure. It has worked today as well, day two of the new text. As with yesterday, I had to deal with sweating without having been active. And as to my Shoulder and Lower Back discomfort/Pain, it started to show up after I returned home from my morning walk and stayed active until for most of the rest of the day.

Today was another so-so day, I tried something new, I took my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) at 4:00 AM as a preventive measure. It seemed to have worked since neither showed up all day. However, instead, I had to deal with sweating without having been active. As to my Shoulder and Lower Back discomfort/Pain, it started to show up just before the end of my morning walk and stayed active until the resting for a bit after lunch.
