Waking Up – 07:21:21 PST, 45°F Possible Drizzle, Antioch, CA
I got up early since I have a Blood Draw appointment at 8:30 followed by my 9:00 Chemo Tech. The later is because I am starting a new treatment, which is “Pill” based and called ‘Venclexta’. The plan is to start the treatment today, assuming no objection from the doctors.

Early Shower – 07:05:14 PST, 54°F Mostly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
Got up at 7:00 to have a good and hot early shower before going back to bed around 7:30. It does take me some extra time for my shower as I play it safe. Dianne is on standby, just in case I need help.

As I got ready to go back to bed, Dianne had breakfast prepared for both of us to enjoy, especially since it was raining. I enjoyed my homemade buttermilk pancakes with a few scrambled eggs, blueberries and mandarin on the side. All topped off with a cup of hot chocolate.

Last Night – January 22, at 20:05:40 PST, 48°F Clear, Antioch, CA
After submitting yesterday’s blog entry, I had an accident, which did not get recorded as it was too late and the type of accident did not help to make an adjustment to the blog entry.

After getting ready to go to bed, I started to walk up the stairs to our bedroom, after about three steps I remembered that I forgot something and turned around to go back down. As I walk down I miscounted the step I was on, thinking I was down three I actually was on two, causing me to fall down onto my side.

The day started unofficially at 6:30 with me watching in bed Bayern Munich vs Herta Berlin on my iPhone and wireless earbuds so that I did not wake up Dianne.
