2019-09-20 Living with Cancer Day 926

Today was not a good day. I got up at my normal time up to do my morning routine. I was having some light dizziness, stomach cramps and shoulder/neck pains. Everything else was fine. I had a light breakfast and was ready for my morning walk with Dean. My vitals at start of day were: BP 152/89 P73, T 97.7F. The Blood Pressure was a bit high, so I check again just before my morning walk, this time it was: BP 155/93 P 83, T 98.2F, which was even higher.

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

2019-02-02 Living with Cancer – Day 698

Today was not a good day nor a bad day. For most of the day I had to deal with stomach cramps, dizziness and sweating.

Regardless, I decided to go ahead and spend the day as we had planned.

2019-02-01 Living with Cancer – Day 697

Today was a very bad day, normally it is the Saturday and Sunday after Wednesday’s Chemo Day. It started off OK with me taking my stomach and dizziness pills in the early morning. However, after getting up at 08:00 I had some light stomach cramps and encountered some Dizziness. After getting downstairs and having a light breakfast, the dizziness and cramps got strong, in addition I started to sweat. All I could do is rest, which did good since by 09:45 things were back to normal, allowing me to go for my walk with Dean.

2018-12-10 Recovery Day 644

Today was another bad day. Health-wise the day was almost a repeat of yesterday, my stomach just would not cooperate. However, unlike yesterday, I went to see my Oncology doctor hoping to see if she would know what to do to help my current situation. For starters, she ordered that I get some hydration immediately. In addition, she prescribed some medication to help with my stomach problems. I spend the next few hours getting hydrated before Dianne took me back home.

2018-11-08 Recovery Day 612

Today was another so-so day! Starting with the health related items, the day started off without any dizziness, stomach issues or hip and ankle pains. My shoulder’s comfort/pain level was at a very low level. However, after my photo session I noticed some stomach issues and dizziness, which may be due to the PET/CT’s contrast fluid I got injected. Resting for the rest of the afternoon and taking the Zofran medication seemed to bring it back down.
