Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire-Bell, sorry to hear of you family loss. We had a tough time in November thinking that we might lose my dad and OH’s mum, thankfully they are both still with us but for how much longer we don’t know. The strain it put on my husband was awful because his dad was also ill and very unwilling to have his wife out of hospital because he couldn’t cope and there was very little we could do to practically help.
Sending 💕and 💪to you and your family x
Good luck today Sue and Jelly Tot and anyone else that I’ve missed. Ring that 🔔either in reality or virtually and 💃 out of there with your heads held high x
Not a bad night for me, woke a few times but couldn’t be bothered getting up to wee so was desperate by 7:30 sleep was more important. Steroid cheeks are up and glowing after being as white as a sheet yesterday until the evening!
Hope you make lunch Karen, I loved Jamie’s when we had one but ours closed with his restructuring 😞
Hope you have a better day Ali and glad that parents evening went well x
Best wishes all for a good day x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire Bell so sorry for your loss been where you are recently during treatment is really difficult to cope with the loss of a parent so sending you 💖 and 💪 to get you and your OH through this really sad time 💖
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire, sorry to hear about your fil, sending you 😘😘🤗🤗 it  must be very difficult for you and your family especially with your treatment still ongoing, did you manage to finish chemo or was it delayed?

 

Ali, hope you manage to avoid the acne rash and you can get out and enjoy the nice day. Weather looks nice here at the moment sunny but frosty and cold.

 

Shi, I'll make sure to sell those shares! Are we now buying shares in moisturiser and sunglasses instead? 😉

 

Karen, if you phone up the N&N they'll tell you when your planning session is and when you start.

 

looking forward to those photos Sue and Jellytot and hearing that you're all done and home safe &sound 😘😘🤗🤗

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning ladies, had a bit of a restless night but slept a little so can’t complain, OH has kicked me out of bed for being a fidget bum!!

Claire-bell what a horrible few weeks for you to have to go thru...this journey brings enough to deal with, live can be so cruel and you are gonna feel a bit wobbly I. This sort of situation...sending you lots of love 💖 and hugs 🤗 look forward to those dancing days...they will come!! My rads start sometime during week of 19 Feb...haven’t had exact day or time yet, I’ve got 15 sessions then 5 boosters! I’m sure they are going to be a lot easier to deal with than chemo!!

Ali...the acid reflux is always bad that first night but then settles as long as I take the lanzaprosole each day....I’ve ticked that night off my list tho as won’t be dealing with that again!! Each day is making me feel more positive!!

Sue sorry to hear you didn’t sleep well again but today is your last one whoop whoop....look forward to seeing your tshirt 😊 and jellytot go dig that wig and ring that bell 🛎

I’m getting a bit lost now but anyone else I’ve missed hope today goes well!

The support we have for each other is just bloody amazing!!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire Bell so sorry for your loss. It is so hard trying to stay strong for everyone else, trying to stay strong ourselves and especially staying strong for our children.

We just have to remind ourselves that this is life and the hardest part of life is most definitely the loving and losing. We just have to gp through it when we wish we didmt and the pain of loss would go.

You are bound to feel.super emotional Claire but i hope you can all support each other. Also claire go and have a blub tp a friend or some9ne who can just be there for you. To listen and comfort. Lots of love xxc

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Didnt make it on yesterday to wish everyone luck sorry! Was awake from 3 with steroids then looked like a blown up tomato all day!! Made it to my sons parents night though and it was amazing!!

Karen the acid is yuk! I have 20mg omeprazole and can take 2 when needed and they seem todo the trick. Thank God. Hope you feel better today xx

Sue that cry will have done you the world of good. Sending you all my good wishes for today. Well done you have done amazingly well xxx

Jencat all good wishes to you today too. We have all come a long way. I was just thinking how scared we were thinking about that first treatment. Well done ch8ck and good luck today xxx

I hope everyones side effects are minimal today. Its going to be cold, fresh and sunny here today. Just the way i like it. I have to remember my suncream though, if i manage to get out, as i am hoping to avoid the acne rash!

I am expecting my steroid crash later though so there will probably be a few tears flowing then. Such an emotional journey!!

First injection today too - the joys - but hey my bloods have been good so.no complaints!

Wishing everyone a good day today. Lots of love xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hey girls
I've missed you all and many of the recent posts, but been so caught up with stuff going on here. Sadly Mike's Dad died last night after slowly deteriorating since Christmas. He and his wife live in Germany so Mike has had numerous trips to Germany this year. The onc team agreed I was healthy enough to leave the country and go with him two weeks ago. I'm so glad to have been able to go and say my goodbyes then. I am trying to stay strong for girls but my youngest is naturally very upset and this is her first experience of death. She is worrying I will be next. I know we all believe in our treatments and that we have to make a full recovery but I'm having a wobble right now. Doubts creep in when you're feeling emotionally low don't they.
There needs to be some joy and dancing to look forward to. I'm so looking forward to our meet up. I feel another hill looming first though in the form of Rads. Is anyone else facing that still. Mine start on 22feb
Sending you all positive vibes for days when you don't have enough of your own. Hugs x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Ok crazy warning from the lady who brought you eating kiwi skins 🥝😉
I was listening to a podcast today about hacking your health (from Dave Asprey if you ever follow his work). He is into hacking your mitochondria to make you age better. Anyhow he recommends spraying cold water on your breasts and chest at the end of your shower to keep them young!! He didn't make any connection to BC but I did! One I will be mulling over trying and just thought I would share on our crazy thread 😉😉😉

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karen, glad you're feeling ok. Not sure what people expect you to look like when you've had 6 chemo sessions. I went from looking white as a sheet on chemo day to bright red the next day with the steroids! Hope you're feeling well enough to go out for your lunch with friends.

 

Sue, good job the 🥒 did the trick and you got a nice pub dinner in before last chemo tomorrow! 

 

Ive just sent OH out to Tesco as we are almost out of food 😳Wasn't much on the list though apart from biscuits, crisps and chocolate 😂

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I was reading a report on chemo brain and they say it can last for years and is a real condition 😱

 

chaffinch I also feel a lot better today than I did last night...have drank lots of water and eaten little but often and that seems to work for me!  I’ve had a few visitors today too which is nice but they all said I look a bit ill...prob coz I’ve got no eyebrows pencilled in and my eyelashes are almost no existent and my face is very red from steroids!!  One of my friends that popped in is having lunch with her mother in law and her friend who were on holiday in June with us and wld like me to go along too...I’m hoping I feel ok to go as would be nice to see them, and it’s at Jamies Italian 🍝 

 

Hope everyone is doing ok, enjoy ur meal out Sue

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

How annoying Buddyfan, as Rach says perhaps you can sell them on.

 

Sue, don't feel silly for getting emotional it's completely understandable. Hope the 🥒 did the trick for your eyes!

 

Rach, 3 nights out this week, you party girl! Good to see you making the most of your good week! 

 

Ruth, good to hear you're back safe and sound, just one more left to go! Hope you're resting up now. 😘😘🤗🤗

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

It really is too easy to cry. I just cried because I my stupid chemo brain meant I double booked tickets for a concert and they won't refund them.
