This world of chemotherapy is mad. I was doing fine for a day or so and then suddenly developed throbbing chest pain and low back pain. Thought I was having a heart issue. Went to the ER and it turns out to be a side effect of one of the noxious toxins I had taken. Got resolved and am doing better now.
I am trying to stay away from as many people as I can, in order to avoid Covid. But I go for rides in my truck (a 2016 GMC Sierra) and a place I often go is to the top of Signal Hill and look out at the North Atlantic and over towards Cape Spear. I spend a lot of time just looking at the beauty. I appreciate it more now than I used to.
I felt well enough to pick up a load of groceries today at Sobeys. So that was my outing for the day. That and Glenda and I went to Canadian Tire to pick up a new Keurig machine and a Magic Bullet for making smoothies.
I am reading Stephen King’s “The Stand”. About 85% through it. A long slog. I have taken two months to get to this point. I haven’t been able to read a lot in the past two months. Not well enough. Also there are a lot on unnecessary words in that book. I skimmed a lot.
I’m going back to it now to keep working through it. When I finish I think I’ll get back to my writing.
That’s it for today. Have a good one.
