Day 7

I slept very well last night.  Each time I woke up, it was an hour or 1 ½ hour later.  Each time I was in the same position, so I hadn’t tossed and turned.  I woke at 6:15 AM and wondered if I could push this even more.  Then I woke at 7:35 AM.  There goes my theory that my Penicillin injection was the cause of my previous poor sleep.

I went for a 3.5-mile walk this morning, and while it usually takes me 36 minutes, it took me just over 40 because I wasn’t in a hurry.  As usual, I took a nap after my walk. 

I “thought” that I got started on my to-do list and completed it easily.  I was quite annoyed that it was so short and easy.  Then I woke up😊

At noon I had a good appetite and ate my usual items.

My blood pressure is 134/82, and my temperature is 96.6 F.  My weight is down to 162.2 lbs.  That is too low.

My visit to Kaiser was to change my dressing where the line enters the Pic line.  It went well.  The RN gave me an extension for the line, which I like.  She also gave me a much longer sock to go over my arm, and it should stay in place far better than the old short one.

I go back next week to get the Pic line removed because I will be done with the Penicillin infusion.

The delivery of my last 5 Penicillin containers arrived today on schedule.

At 3.30 PM, I removed my empty one and installed the full Penicillin container.

For dinner, I had asparagus tips, black beans, broccoli, cauliflower, split pea soup, mashed potatoes, and peanut butter cups.  I was hungry.

In the evening, I watched a TV show about a couple who moved to the artic and built a cabin and everything that they needed.

I am fairly confident that I will sleep well tonight.
