Just a a quick hello day 12 post chemo 5 fewer SE's than last time but still got horrible mouth dont know why I find it so hard to tolerate certainly not worst thing to have but it really bugs me. Hair had a bit of a fallout flurry too nowhere near as drastic as with the FEC but has made me feel like I am almost bald on very top of my head with a comb-over. Weirdly one of my friends said to me I must be delighted at how much hair I have at this stage of my treatment ! It looks ok from the back then again so does the rest of me !
Got enough energy to brave Smyths toy store sale today got very excited when I found some "Peter Rabbit" figures my little boy loves the animation on tv and re-enacts the stories so our downstairs loo is now Mr Tod's lair where he cooks bothersome bunnies in my vegetable steamer. He will love having the figures to play with, his birthday is 2 weeks tomorrow, he will be 3. He told me tonight at bedtime I am his best friend I love him so much it hurts. Hope the chemo has seen off this horrible disease I have to be here for my baby.
Lovewine very jealous of your wine and curry (though mine would have to be veggie) I cant wait to enjoy foodand wine again.Re your son, s girlfriend she doesn't sound depressed rather more like someone who wants to break up but ddoesn't have the decency to be honest about it. Could be doing the girl a disservice but time will tell. Your son needs to know where he stands so he can start to deal with it but if she won't even talk to him and uses Facebook to thank him for the flowers the poor lad mustnt know what to think. Hope he gets some answers soon.
Rosie don't know how you cope with those awful tissue expanders they seem to do everything very fast in Cyprus I thought the point of the expanders was to slowly stretch the skin over time so implants can then be fitted so inflating yours every couple of weeks must be putting tremendous pressure on you, like Wildpurl was saying hers were inflated every few months. Hope you get some relief soon at least the weather will be getting more bearable some time soon. Hope being back home gives your dad enough of a lift that he feels stronger soon.
Lisa you're obviously happy to be back at work , getting back to a bit of normal. Hope your workplace is more considerate than mine and let you take it slowly.
Looks like Wildpurl got lucky with the weather should be a lovely holiday.
Really need to go and get some sleep, apologies for not mentioning everyone but I am such a slow typer would be up all night doing it properly xx
