Life After – September 2020

9/09/2020 (Wednesday) – Headache, Sore throat, Coughing is worse, Ankles, feet, lower legs and finger tips swollen. Woke at half-past dark last night coughing my ring out. Feel bad about waking Sandy with my coughing.
Resolved the issues with the blog…all good.
Had the Echocardiograph today, the results have to be compared to the one I had on the 31/12/2019 and the findings will be sent to both Oncologist and my Doctor, no doubt I will find out at my next consult with Dr Roy on the 22nd prior to Treatment Cycle 13.

Started to update the WHS Metrics spreadsheet data for Hancock Agiculture for 2021 and EOM Reports for August 2020.

10/09/2020 (Thursday) – Headache, Sore throat, Coughing is worse, Fluid retention in ankles, feet and lower legs. Had a really bad coughing fit last night in bed. Sat up to take salbutamol (ventolin puffer) to try and ease the coughing and started coughing all over again. I’m sure I coughed my hairy arse up, however I couldn’t find it this morning so I guess I didn’t – it certainly felt like it though.
Felt like shit and went back to bed, slept until midday. Noticed the rash is now on the top of my feet.

11/09/2020 (Friday) – Headache, Sore throat, Coughing is worse, Fluid retention in ankles, feet and lower legs. Fucking “ants” are back, little fuckers are just under my skin sneaking around. Haven’t felt like eating over the last few days – looks like I’m losing my appetite. Really felt like shit this morning so I went back to bed and slept until midday again woke up coughing. My stomach muscles are really sore from the intensity of the coughing. Still feel like shit.

Continued updating the HA WHS Metrics data and EOM Reports for August 2020.

Was able to fix the “Post Comment” button on the Blog today so anybody wanting to join the conversation can now do so given they can actually see the button as it is displayed permanently, as it should be.

Went to the Goodwood Park Hotel for dinner to celebrate Jeff’s 48th birthday. His siblings and their children (grand children) were there and it was great to see them all, it has been a while; and boy have the little ones grown, you really notice the difference when you have not seen them for a while. The meals were good and the service was good as well. A nice night was had by all.

13/09/2020 (Sunday) – NO Headache, Sore throat, Cough, Fluid retention? Ants. I can’t belive I don’t have a headache…bliss!

Went to the National Rail Museum in Port Adelaide and had a wander around the museum and checked out the Adelaide Steampunk Festival. Quite a few stalls with some amazing “stuff” for sale, a lot of people dressed in style. Love the costumes (dress style).

Debbie and Phil’s daughter (see attached picture), Lucas dressed accordingly for the day and participated in the “Best Costume” competition but was unable to take out the top spot.

However we thought she looked the part.

It was a nice day out. Headache returned in the evening – bugger!

14/09/2020 (Monday) – Slight Headache, Sore throat, Cough, Fluid retention still. Forearms and hands ache (like arthritis), a new symptom. Everyday it is different. Life is full of little surprises, oh joy! Headache returned last night, knew it was too good to be true. Have felt pretty ordinary today.

15/09/2020 (Tuesday) – Headache, Sore throat, Cough really bad through out the night, Fluid retention – swelling. Aching limbs/fingers. Waking continuously through the night coughing my lungs up. Sandy said her night was reminiscent to that of breast feeding on demand (children…not me). I have to say I really feel bad about all the stuff that Sandy now puts up with because of the outcomes of me having this shitty disease, she tries so hard not to show it, but I know it must affect her. She is an absolute gem and I love her to bits.
