2018-07-04 Recovery Day 485

Today was another good day, which again started with a good sleep. Like yesterday I got up early around 7:00 and had a good breakfast Dianne had made. Health wise no complaints, no stomach problems and no bone pains, only a little bit shoulder discomfort.

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.

2017-11-28 Recovery Day 267

Today was another so-so day. Like yesterday, the day started of fine, but after my morning walk the back pain level increased more then usual. Resting for awhile and taken two Tylenol bought the level back down. However, after returning from short car ride to drop-off a lawnmower my stomach acted up a bit.

2017-11-27 Recovery Day 266

Today was again a so-so day. The day started of fine, but after my morning walk the back pain level increased more then usual. Laying down for awhile and taken two Tylenol bought the level back down. However, after returning from a car ride and some shopping the back pain level increased again. I laid down again for almost two hours to get the pain level down. I did not go for my afternoon walk to give my back more time to recover from what ever causes the increase in pain. As to my foot and knee pains, they were again absent.

2017-11-24 Recovery Day 263

Today was another good day, a repeat of yesterday. My back pain is still there and my left foot and knee pain is still bothering me on and off. For now Tylenol is taking care of the foot and knee pain. On the medical front, I will be at UCSF next week for the Bone Marrow Biopsy. I will have to wait a few days for the results, before we will know how successful the stem cell treatment was and what comes next.
