Rosie, just dropping in from February to say well done on completing your rads marathon! Sorry you had such a stressful final day - have a safe journey and hope you can relax a bit next week.
Thought I'd come and say hello, prompted by bumping into Lovewine at the cinema on Sunday, the world is a very small place, you looked really well Wendy and it was lovely to say hello. I hope your dad is OK. I've had a quick read through but there are so many posts, too many for me to catch up on properly, so apologies for that. It sounds like everyone is getting on pretty well, Rosie - you've nearly finished your rads, congratulations, I expect you wont miss the daily travel, just think how much time you are going to get back ! Jackie - exciting that you are thinking about a move, we enjoyed Cyprus too, mainly the sunshine, although I do like this weather too, makes me feel cosy. Wildpurl - hope you're interview went well, when will you know the outcome?
I'll have a proper catch up in the next couple of days but until then have a good day tomorrow all
Thankfully the heating at work is fixed, but I wore extra layers today just in case but my nose and fingers on the keyboard reamained cold until about 3pm when the gas engineer turned up, I was right, the system needed to be top up and re balancing, whatever that means? Anyway a lot more air came out of the radiators after the top up and it now works, horrahh.. all staff and all lovely ladies having smear tests grateful no doubt.
Keep warm, I will post again shortly
I meant to say I saw the GP on Friday and my vitamin D is low so I have started on some tablets to help replace it, its difficult to get enough sun when you have chemo and are told to keep out of the sun, plus working in an office does not help. My liver function is also a bit abnormal but not enough to be too worried apparently? I will have the liver function and vitamin D re-checked in 8 weeks and if not normal by then a CT scan will be ordered! I am really fed up with all the appointments and hope it does not come to that.
My physio appointment is this Weds lets hope it is useful and helps with the nasty tight veins, I am not convinced they will ever improve, they do look very unattractive as well as uncomfortable
I love that we all are beginning to feel more like we used to with our new hair, you look lovely ladies. I have just been looking through my daughters photographs and I don't think she has uploaded the ones from my nephews graduation yet, they are on her iphone. My youngest daughger is in Michigan at the moment visiting a friend so all is a bit quite here in the evenings. We did have a lovely time at the taste of Winter food tasting, I bought a few things to try a lovely fruit based cordial Belvoir, apple plum and cinnamon which is meant to be warm, its very nice and a warming alternative to tea, coffee or hot chocolate, I don't mind green tea with lemon but do like to try new things. The food was yummy but I really cannot afford too many calories I have managed to put about 20lbs on and have been too worried to diet, but some effort in the new year needs to be made.
I am going up to Gorleston on Friday for the weekend to visit my older daughter and grandson which will be nice and maybe do a bit of Christmas shopping. My daughter has a new kitten now 9 weeks which will be cute to see while she is still small.
My office was absolutely freezing today, I managed to get all radiators on except the top floor where I work, I had my trusty radiator key at the ready but I think the system might need topping up, luckily we have cover with British Gas and I managed to get an appointment for tomorrow so hopefully we should be warmer soon, my nose was like ice this afternoon.
Keep warm x Cassie
