As to my activities, like the last few days, there were not many. However today I spend most of my ay inside the cancer center on a recliner to get my chemo infusion. I was able to take some PICTURES during my treatment of the IV Pole.
After my treatment, Dianne took me home. I rested which helped to keep my shoulder and back pain in check, however for about 30 minutes sweat returned. After the sweating stopped I start with the daily processing of my pictures and working on my Living with Cancer and Photography blog.
For the rest of the day my activities were the same as always, watching some TV in the background when working on my blog, today I had to continue to work on my blogs after dinner since I had little time before dinner because my treatment did not end until 4:00. After dinner, having finished my blog entries, I watch some TV or a Movie before calling it a day.
In summary, overall today was another so-so day.

Today’s single object is the IV Pole which is beside my recliner and is a piece of vital equipment for my cancer treatment.

Today was Treatment Day which is an all-day affair. It means that selecting a subject area for taking pictures off is difficult. I noticed, after settling in at the Infusion Room, that it still had the Ballon Figures that were left by Mark of the Cancer Support Group the week before. They became today’s subjects.

Today was very bad day. I decided last night to continue with taking Dilaudid every 3 hours starting at 9:00 PM. After 3:00 AM most of my pain was gone, except my pain in my shoulder area, which hurt when I turned in my bed. I got up early at 7:00 since I needed to be ready at 8:30 for Dean to take me to the Cancer Center. However, getting dressed was rather painful as suddenly like yesterday all my pain points got active the more I moved. It was so bad That I was not sure I wanted to the Cancer Center for Treatment. I decided to go hoping that at least my resting during the all-day treatment would help.

Today was another so-so day, starting with me sleeping in until 8:30. By the time I had breakfast at 9:30. For most of the day, I had to deal with some earlier discomfort with some Stomach and Dizziness issues. However, thanks to the medication I had taken as a precaution around 6:00 AM I was able to enjoy some Toast and Tea. Not being very active I also started to encounter lower back pain. Because of these ailments, I rested for the whole afternoon and evening.
