A New Day – January 2nd

07:30:30 PST – Getting up
I got up at 7:30, a bit earlier since getting back home from UCSF. I did this as of next week I will be alone for a few hours in the morning since Dianne will be at work, which is about 5-10 minutes away. After getting dressed and doing some small tasks I went downstairs for breakfast.

Starting the New Year

07:30:00 PST – Getting up
My plan was to get up around 7:45, but Dianne beat me to it by bringing me breakfast to the bed so that we both coUld have it together. It was a great surprise.

After breakfast, I got dressed and ready to work on getting the Smart Switch fixed since the installing during Christmas did not work.

2019-11-20 Living with Cancer Day 987

Today was yet another good day! Since I had no appointments, I got up around 8:00 thinking it was Thursday, Garbage collection day, after I was done and downstairs looking at my schedule I noticed my mistake. As to my Dizziness and Stomach cramps it was at a very, very level. I had a small breakfast so that I could take my medication on not an empty stomach. The rest of the morning was walking and shopping with Dean.

2019-11-17 Living with Cancer Day 984

Today was yet another so-so day, the plan, like yesterday, was to get up earlier to have breakfast with Dieter, or at least up to say goodbye as they are leaving for Valencia (Southern California), a 6-hour drive. I did get up early and was downstairs around 8:30, enough time to talk a bit before seeing them off around 9:00. We got word that they arrived safely at home around 2:00 PM, Dieter is a speed daemon 🙂

2019-11-16 Living with Cancer Day 983

Today was another so-so day, the plan was to get up a bit earlier for Saturday since Dieter, Renee and Carsten had arrived late last night for a short visit. However, I was hit by dizziness and some stomach issues, I, therefore, slept in. Getting downstairs around 9:30 I had a light breakfast before taking my medication. Dianne hooked me up for my hydration so that it was done by lunchtime. I rested during the hydration which helped with my dizziness going down.

2019-11-09 Living with Cancer Day 976

Today was another GOOD day, it started with getting up early to have breakfast at Mel’s Diner before going shopping at the Farmers Market in Brentwood. Before going home, we stopped at Walmart to do some more shopping. After getting home and having put away the groceries, etc., Dianne and Denise went back out. I stayed home because my shoulder had cramped up from all that walking around the Farmers Market. I was able to watch the Soccer game of Bayern vs Dortmund, which Bayern won 4:0.

2019-10-27 Living with Cancer Day 963

Today was another so-so day, it started after going to bed when strong winds took over, speeds up to 35 mph (ca. 56 km/h) and gusts up to 50 mph (ca. 80 km/h) were the norm until about noon, when it dropped by around 10 mph (ca. 16 km/h). The forecast for tonight is that the winds will drop to more manageable speeds.

As to my activities, they were limited because of somewhat elevated temperature close to 100F. I just did not get going all day long. It was not a good day, but at the same not a bad one either.

2019-10-18 Living with Cancer Day 954

Today was another Good day. Because I had to delay my walk until after the visit from the HomeCare Nurse at 9:00, I did not get up 8:00. I took my time with my morning chores not to start sweating, it worked, dizziness and stomach issues were at a very low level, my temperature was 97.9F. The nurse arrived at 9:10 and put a new needle into my power port for the weekly hydration. She checked all my vitals before leaving around 9:45. I went walking with Dean at 10:00.
