It has taken me quite a while to catch up on the thread, you have all been busy. I can report no problems with the hair dye, I coloured it yesterday the patch test was fine the plaster had more inpact on my skin, inside the elbow as directed! One less thing to worry about, my colour is mid brown Nice and easy permanent, so no bleach involved, still feels odd throwing half away though, yet I needed all + before, maybe in a years time I will be back there again. I have been to see the GP because I seem to be having lots of aches and pains in my feet hands and knees, I can hardly walk when I first get up in the morning and feel 90 when walking downstairs for the first time in the morning, I have to get some blood tests taken and see if they show up anything. I think its really difficult as we never really know is this a side effect or something else? Muscle pain is a side effect but this is joint pain, in the knees and not sure about the other. I wondered if I may need some supplements vitamin D may be low as I have not been able to go in the sun much with the treatment, we will see. The GP seemed about 15, forgot to give me the prescription and I got a call from the receptionist as soon as I got home to let me know, it will have to wait until I can get up there, not much good when walking is difficult.
I hope you all have a good day and don't get too wet, the weather is not looking very cheerful today
We all went out for lovely meal last night and I splashed out a bit on some lobster, my daughter and her friend then went out later to a fancy dress function in a club, the little girl I was babysitting for was an angel and did not wake until 8.20am this morning. We have all been out for lunch today and our visitors have now returned home to Kent and the house feels empty, I think it always does when you have had a young child around, it's as if you are on alert mode all the time, then they go home and all is calm again. Bless the little one she kept blowing kisses to my cat, he was a little bemused at first with her crawling at high speed after him, but they remained on friendly terms thankfully, I must admit I was impressed with the cats manners, he can be a bit skittish at the best of times.
I have put the spot test on for the Nice and Easy hair dye the 48 hours will be up tomorrow, lets see how it goes, it's now been 3 months since my last chemo and I have had one dye at the hairdressers which was OK, my hair is thickening up but I will continue to trim the thinner longer wispy bits for a couple more weeks then get it cut again, I must admit I do resent paying full price for such a tiny bit of hair to be styled.
I have dyed my hair with permanent dye but went to the hairdressers for a diluted dye which went well, about 7 weeks ago, it now needs doing again my hair grows like grass thankfully, I will let you know how I get on with the home dye, I will do the patch test though, I don't usually bother but I am worried since all the treatment, just in case, I am not taking any chances.
I am babysitting for one of my daughters friends tonight the little girl is 13 months, wish me luck.
