2019-08-04 Living with Cancer Day 879

Today was a *GOOD day, no real issues getting up. After my upstairs morning routine I went downstairs having breakfast that Dianne had prepared. As to daily symptoms, I found an iPhone app that records my symptoms during the day. The day is broken down into 4 sections, Nite, AM, Mid and PM. It helps me when trying to figure out when I had what symptom and the level of it. There are 5 levels to select from for each symptom.

2019-03-02 – Indoor Photography – Early Easter Egg Hunt

Today’s weather was very wet as we had lots of rain overnight. Lucky for Dieter and company that the Easter bunny had hidden the Easter eggs inside the house.

These photos were taken during our Early Easter Egg Hunt. It was early because Dieter and Family are unable to visit us during the real Easter because their Baseball season is starting very early this year, and Carsten does not want to miss it.

2019-02-05 Living with Cancer – Day 701

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

2018-12-28 Recovery Day 662

Today was another good day, health-wise the shoulder and lower back pain is the only issues for most of the day. Normally when walking my shoulder pain level drops, but not today, instead it increased. However, my back pain was hardly notable. During my sitting in the theater, my left leg was jumpy for about 20 minutes.

2018-03-13 Recovery Day 372

Today was a better day then yesterday, but still not a good day. Like yesterday there is not much to write about. Again, like yesterday I did not get out of bed until 08:30 because of stomach pains that started at 4:00. After getting up I got ready for my morning walk with Dean. We were lucky that the rain had stopped for our walk. After returning from our walk I had a shower and got ready for the Cancer Support Group meeting.

2017-08-16 Recovery Day 163

If you have not read yesterday’s posting, please do, otherwise you may not understand what I am about to report.

Before I update you about the additional Cyclophosphamide, also called Cytoxan infusion I am going to receive, let me update you about my pain.

Today was another good day, just like yesterday, because the only pain I had was the shoulder-back-shoulder pain which came in various pain levels. I also had no the morning sickness (dizziness and quizziness).

2017-08-13 Recovery Day 160

Today was the day, the best day of my recovery. Hardly any signs of morning sickness (dizziness and quizziness), just some shoulder-back-shoulder pain when I do to much. The day started of with a good breakfast and a 20 minute walk afterwards along the front of our house. After that I spend a few hours resting in the backyard. The rest of the morning I spend in my office sorting to a pile of paper work. Looking at the pile, it does not look like I made any progress in my task, but I know I did. Not to over do it, I quit at lunch time.
