Hi runnerbean, did you switch to T same day as cassie and I then last week? Very glad to hear bloods are ok for you. May ladies have said use Loratadine tablets, i started mine the next day. My mouth went down hill fast and luckily onc had given me 7 day course of fluconozole which I started day 5 so hope that keeps that at bay. The May ladies also said take immodium tablets to stop hurricane botty, there is quite a juggling act on the T chemo, its just a case of balls in the air and pray. I just wish we could all be like those ladies I meet in the onc clinic who have luckily sailed through fec and are sailing through t, I wish everyone going through any kind of chemo was a lucky as them. Also May ladies advise us to up our carbs to help ttry and keep food in tthe body longer during T. Think because I was on steriods and the antisickness tabs too that blocked my botty up good and proper till around a couple of days ago and I was actually on the senokots till then. Keep the fluids going into you too runnerbean and sending love and sparkles to you darling. love shi xx
Gluhwein I think is more or less the same as mulled wine. I get bottles of it from Aldi after having it in Brussels at a Xmas market. It's also where I got the idea of adding a shot of ameretto as they add shots of stuff to it. I would've had some this year, but as OH doesn't drink it would just be me and I've not really fancied alcohol plus I couldn't and probably shouldn't drink a whole bottle to myself especially with added ameretto 😳😳😳
Karen also meant to say I take temp with oral thermometer 🤒 As that's what hospital gave me. I usually take mine in the morning before I get up as opening your mouth, talking and drinking stuff within 30 minutes of taking temp can affect the reading and the only chance I have of not having done those things is when I first wake up. 🙄
Runnerbean, sorry to hear you're in case nhs. Hope they let you out soon. Here's a dance to help get your botty under control 🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻👯👯♂️👯🌟✨🌟🌟🌟✨⭐️🌈🦄💃🕺🏻🦄🌈🌟✨👯🌈🌟✨⭐️👯♂️
Shi, funny you should mention the st. Trinians as I had the same thought last night. That's what I keep picturing now when I think of our little unruly band of travellers on our chemo 🚂 🏑🏑🏑🏑🏑
Karen, glad you're feeling a bit better. My rash is also looking a bit better too so I'm going to carry on with cream and antihistamines for another day and see how it looks tomorrow.
my friend didn't give me any quantities for mulled apple recipe, she said it's got 🍏 juice, some cloves, star anise, cinnamon sticks, piece of ginger 🤢and some sugar, put in saucepan over medium heat and leave for 60 mins. She also said she sometimes does it in the slow cooker. I usually slow cook my gluhwein or mulled wine on Xmas day that way there's always some on hand, I usually add a shot of amaretto to my glass and then add the slow cooked gluhwein 😋😋Won't be doing that this year though ☹️, so thought the mulled apple juice would be a nice replacement as OH really liked it.
Runnerbean...hope you get out soon and they sort your botty probs....not nice to use a commode, is that coz they worried about infection? Have they fed you yet?? Sending you lotsa love 💖 xxxx
Morning ladies....went to sleep really early last night and slept pretty well, woke up for an hour or so but managed to get back off! Temp is back down to 37.6 and cold has dried up just got a bit of an irratating cough! Quick question with temp...when they took mine yesterday at hosp she hardly put it in my ear and it was a lot lower than I had made it at home but I stick it right in....what do you do?
Its xmas jumper day today so gonna put my unicorn one on and try and feel a bit Xmasy...I did have a few peoples nails booked in but I’ve moved them to tomorrow to give myself an extra day to feel a bit better!
Good luck for those of you that are up today...hope the T is kind to you if your changing! Meesh, Sue was asking if they could give us anything to combat the steroids keeping her awake and I said you take something but cldnt remember what it is 😱
Hope all you other ladies are doing ok and have nice things planned.
Karen, howre you? Hope your temp is still under control and you're not suffering too much with your cold. Make sure you rest up today and drink plenty of water.
sue, have you heard from Jencat recently? Is she ok?
My mum and sis are coming today 🤗🤗🤗 I can't wait! Need to have a shower and check rash as I've got loads to do before they get here. OH is hoovering so housework will be finished but I need to go to Tesco for a few things. My friend made me some lovely mulled apple juice, it's really 😋😋😋 so I'm off to get a few ingredients I don't have so I can make it for my mum and sis.
Have a lovely day ladies!

🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂Sue, that's sounds like the normal way of things in my house. OH has just made some semolina, did he ask me if I wanted any ....no. I make his breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday yet he never asks me if I want a cup of tea or a snack🤜🏻🤜🏻🐟🐟🐟. Sometimes I'm tempted to just cook myself some dinner and see what happens.
Yes I've bought it off the shelf before. Although when I went to onco unit yesterday they asked me if I had any at home I said no because knew they'd then give me some for free!
