2018-12-20 Our Christmas Decorations, Set 8, Nutcracker Set 2

Today was another Good day again with no health-related issue, my stomach cooperating for the most part of the day. My shoulder pain/discomfort still is present, today for the whole day, with a variant level between 3 and 7. However, one new issue, which started about a week ago, is sweating when being active, and even more when I stop. I am known to sweat easily, but this is nothing, it is only from the top of my head. Guess this is sometimes of side effect to be mention to my doctors.

2018-12-04 Recovery Day 638

Another bad day. Health-wise the day started with a high temperature, 99.8F, that never variated by more than 2F. I stayed in bed until 9:00, at with time I went downstairs and had a multi-grain bagel for breakfast. I rested for the whole day, having around lunch some stomach pain that lasted for about 2 hours. I also encountered some wet-sweat at the start of the high temperature around 6:00 AM.

2018-11-26 Recovery Day 630

Today was not a good day as it was a continuation of yesterday. My cold got worse, therefore I stayed in bed until lunchtime, I ran a temperature of 100.4F, taken Tylenol to get the temperature down.

2018-11-18 Recovery Day 622

Today was a bad day! Health-wise, I woke up with a lot of pain in new location. Instead of getting up early I stayed in bed until about 9:00. Getting up I did also have a little bit of dizziness and stomach issues. I took my medication, however about 10 minutes later I had to throw up. Not sure what triggered it. I rested for a bit before I eat some toast and drank. My stomach settled down allowing me to take my morning medication. I rested until lunch time, by which time my pain levels were much lower. After my radiation session in the afternoon, I rested to allow my pain and stomach issues to stay in check.

2018-10-14 Recovery Day 587

Today was another great day, with a slow start. I did not sleep to well last night, getting up this morning was a bit slow as I did not feel too good. I only eat some toast with my camomile tea. The good news, it started feeling better as time progressed. For most of the day, I have had no dizziness, stomach issues, back or bone pain. Shortly before dinner my hips and shoulders started to hurt more than normal. It might be the result of being overactive this afternoon.

2018-09-23 Recovery Day 566

Another excellent day, with no dizziness, stomach problems, bone or back pain. One may argue that I have reached the end of the road to recovery now that I have so many excellent days. It is not that simple since full recovery would mean as a minimum that I can do all my physical activities without any restrictions or pain. For now, and the last 566 days that has not been the case, nor will it in the near future, therefore I am still on the road to recovery.
