End of Day 2: He had nausea yesterday afternoon, but it resolved in some hours with rest. He felt good enough to go to the bookstore and meet an author of some novels he loves...book 8 just came out!
Today he was busy all day, took his normal nap, worked at his computer, and went to see a film tonight on his own...more blowing up stuff...I'm not a fan.
He likes film but can't stand TV. He is profoundly hearing impaired and simply cannot follow the dialog without blasting the neighbors out. He wears headphones over his hearing aids but it doesn't work that well for him on dialog. Movies really are too loud for normal folks, but perfect for him. We got gift certificates for Christmas....the kids knew what he liked.
So, bottom line, so far so good...he has been alert
His exercise routine has been negatively impacted by other stuff...he is recovering from shoulder surgery and still in PT for that (can't lift anything...still using stretchy bands). And he has the most AWFUL rash "down there" and cannot bear to walk very far!.
Went to dermo today as rashes are awful -- and he has 3 different RXs for 3 different things...scalp, "down there," and his arms/chest. They gave him 2 weeks of Keflex to take for the existing rash on his arms. Now with Olysio having rashes and sunburns as a common side, he has to be really really careful. Today he wore his long sleeved fishing shirt with SPF60, his Greg Norman hat, and his new SFP 60 fishing gloves...cuts quite the figure. Several years ago I had extra tint put in the front and side windows of the car as the sun here in the sunshine state can feel terrible....so that is going to help also.
Night all, I'm tired,
