Today was a OK and busy day, health-wise my ‘normal’ pain levels increased from three and two to four for the shoulders and three for the lower back. It did however drop back to three and two a few times, but not for long, whereas it did not increase to level six and five. As to my eye, no change from yesterday. Tomorrow we have a appointment with UCSF and I foresee a change in dozage or a change in medication.

2019-06-18 Living with Cancer Day 836

Today was another so-so day, as to my sleep is back to the normal pattern. I again got up at 7:00 to have completed my breakfast and take my morning medication by 8:00. This morning I did not sweat much as I prepared for my morning walk. I ran into some problem during my walk, using the Portable Oxygen Concentrator, in that my Oxygen Saturation Level was not getting above 92%, requiring more to have more stops to rest. The reason was that one of my nostrils was plugged up. After my walk, I rested with oxygen for about 5 minutes which got my levels back up. After lunch, I went for some hydration at the cancer center helping to bring my energy level back.

Today was another so-so day, it started around 4:00 AM with some Stomach and Dizziness discomfort. I took my medication for it and went back to sleep. By the time I got up, around 8:00 AM, things were a bit better for me to have a light breakfast. Things did not improve, I had my soup for lunch, hoping that this may help. It did but not until about 2:00 PM at which time the discomfort and pain went down. It lasted to about 5:00 PM after which the shoulder and lower back pain surfaced again. Since I just got home from the support group meeting, I rested which helped to get things back under control.
