Wrote last post this afternoon but forgot to post it I didnt leave my poor little donks out half the night in the wind and rain !
Wildpurl hope your appointment with consultant puts your mind at rest and glad to hear the job issues may be resolved in a good way.
I agree the stress of the diagnosis and treatment comes out later I know I havent begun to deal with my surgeries on an emotional level as I was dealing with chemo right after, the whole thing is a nightmare I will talk to a counselor if needs be I want to move on and live life to the full and not in fear, hope I can do that.
Well got to do an online shop or we all starve tomorrow !
Hello all, havent posted for some time as I have been feeling so ill since last chemo, side effects have lasted forever mouth still not right but the real killer was the stinking cold I caught just days after last treatment it completely floored me but I still had to do stuff for sons 3rd birthday and went to NEC as had ticket for Horse of Year Show, had bought ticket in February before recurrence of cancer found. Also was chance to meet up with mum and sister so dragged myself there, a 2 hour drive and tried to pace myself through the day. Unfortunately got really bad indigestion and had to leave earlier than normally would but overall glad I made the effort. It did wipe me out so doing little birthday tea for son 2 days later was pretty exhausting.
Have had the cold 2 weeks now and chesty cough but definitely slowly on the mend and knowing I dont have to go for chemo on Thursday is a great feeling. Hospital managed to forget my herceptin treatment, given I know how chaotic they are I called last week to check and no appointment had been made for my treatment. As I've already missed one treatment due to their ineptitude I was less than impressed if I am not proactive nothing happens. Having it Friday now.
Moan over sorry for being a pain, it sounds like everyone else has far more on their plates than me what with Rosies expanders and radiotherapy treks, Wildpurls job worries and stress, Lovewines sons worries and Joans dodgy nails plus you're both also doing rads too.
Jackie I am ashamed of myself for moaning given what you've had to deal with recently, hope you have a fab holiday.
Lisa hope you find a better balance of work hours, stressful jobs like yours really take it out of you. Cassie you sound like work has been hectic I cant even think about going back to work I am a solicitor work is very stressful and demanding not up to that yet.
Hope life starts getting easier for everyone soon.
Well weather is awful today gales and torrential rain, best go and rescue the donkeys from the field before they start complaining loudly !!

I have been reading the thread on and off so I am fairly up to date with all the trials an tribulations, none of this is easy, is it ladies, but it will improve. I have continued to be busy at work with staff on leave and no replacements for them, I should not moan though at least I have been able to do be of assistance and feel worthwhile. The weather is terrible here in central London wet and windy and due to be a lot worse.
I have booked some leave for next week only a couple of days, but it will be a break my youngest daughter has booked a couple of nights in St Austell Cornwall, which will make a nice break away, we are going Sunday morning and return Tuesday night, Saturday was not available.
I had best get a wriggle on and get ready for work. Have a good day all x Cassie
