Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Shi, πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£you always make me laugh! I also bought some chemo hats in case the cold cap didn't work or I couldn't hack it. I didn't like mine either because I too have a peanut head, they are good though to put on under other hats to keep bonce warm. The hat is a slouchy hat, I'll try to post a picture but I can't promise anything.

Hi dizzy, I’ve got about 15 beanies already 😁😁😁 and some turban type things (was deluded in thinking I’d rock it like liz taylor) when with my little peanut head ended up looking like an extra from carry on up the kybur πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ’•πŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I had a weird thing happened to me today whilst shopping. I went into opticians to put my contact lenses on hold (should've done it 6 months ago) and just as I was about to leave one of the assistants stopped me and asked me where I got my hat. When I told her it was homemade she asked if I would make one for her for £10. She then said she had the same boots as me and also a similar bag (which is made from recycled leather by a local lady) so I agreed to make it for her. These blooming hats, this will be the 4th one I've made in the last 6 weeks! I probably should've said no, but I was so 😳 😳😳

I like Orla, I’ve got a few kitchen things of hers! I have to stop myself before the whole kitchen is full!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I've been out spending today! I treated myself to a nice orla Kiely teapot, which was expensive so we won't tell OH 🀐I also treated myself to some new earrings too and a top that I probably didn't need. It was nice to be out and about and feeling normal.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

On a positive note girlies today my oncologist decided to cancel my last chemo! I was so surprised but he felt the risk of neuropathy remaining and affecting my feeling in the fingertips and feet was greaser than the minimal risk of not having my last chemo. Also my naughty neutrophils were very low and so rather than put it off and suggest a lower dose he just decided to discontinue the chemo treatment! Yippee!! I'm done! I can actually enjoy the next three weeks and get myself fit and healthy before rads start on 22 Feb! Sending you all lots of love and thanks for keeping me company on the chemo train I couldn't have done it without you all keeping me dancing and feeling positive! Hugs xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Clairebell good luck for today πŸ›ŽπŸ›ŽπŸ›Ž Karana I’m glad you managed to talk to your other half, men are not very good at telling us what they are feeling and need forcing into telling us sometimes. Sue hope your SE ease off today and you are feeling better after yesterday’s trauma. I’m going to have a quiet day today and then I have my Rads planning meeting tomorrow so hopefully I will have my dates for the next stage then. Hope you all have a good day xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Buddy he did say that I’ve never actually asked him how he’s coping and I’m probably a bit guilty about that....men are def strange creatures and I don’t think we will ever be able to suss them out!! Think the best way to clean nail beds would be to rub hands with a gentle cleansing soap or showe gel and then soak them in a small bowl of warm water....then use ur almond oil...you cld even put some of the almond oil in the bowl of water too x
I was gonna attempt a yoga class this morning but I’m still quite achy from injections so may try next week...I’m also a bit worried about πŸ’¨ πŸ˜‚
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karana, great that you sorted the situation. If you’re having πŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯“ it sounds like the cumulative effect of extreme tiredness carries on when πŸ₯“πŸ₯“πŸ₯“ are finished. OH needs to be prepared for that, otherwise he will think you should be better. Ask him to just talk to you if he’s worried, or better still give him MacMillan’s number. On a different note, Karina, what’s the most gentle way of soaking hands to clean nails? I don’t want to strain the nail bed. Shi, πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ another one to add to the list of se, I hope Jellytot appreciated it. A real laugh out loud moment. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Dizzie, if yoga is anything like pilates you willπŸ’¨πŸ’¨πŸ’¨. I’ve done it a number of times, as have others. Sometimes you can get away with it but once I let rip for so long everyone was πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning all, I was also worried about you last night Karen. Glad you’ve managed to talk to OH. The busy life of running a pub can’t help. You will be able to spend more time together relaxing when you leave x
Jelly tot your ears must be burning, did make me laugh though. Hope you’re doing ok after chemo last week x
Enjoy your walk and shop Meesh x
Take it easy today Sue and watch how much you swing that iron. I’m gradually making a dent in my ironing pile. We have way too many clothes because we are real charity shop bargain hunters. Every time I see something good quality and nearly new at a good price that I like I can’t resist.
Claire, blow your whistle with pride, we will celebrate with you later πŸ’•
Hope everyone has a good day, I have Pilates later at Maggie’s 😊

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Shi, I also loved your typo made me laugh so much OH asked what I was laughing at! 

 

Rach, that's another great frank turner song. I downloaded his album after your last post and forgot about it so I'm going to listen to that while I walk today. Thanks for reminding me!

 

Karen, enjoy your day out and order those uggs you deserve them!

 

Sue take it easy today, you had quite a day yesterday.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Think we are going out for lunch today somewhere, maybe Horning? Haven’t ordered the uggs yet but think I will! My sandals turned up yesterday but although I ordered 2 different colours they almost looked the same, but managed to sell a pair to a friend so all worked out well!

I loved the typo for jelly Shi..made me giggle!!

Sue hopefully today will be more comfortable for you 😘

I’m now having a toasted hot cross bun....m&s Bradley apple ones are the best....well it is nearly Easter!! I think I may turn into a weeble!!!!!

Morning ladies....requested tunes uploaded!

Can’t believe I typed a really long post last night then it deleted...just sums up how yesterday went! Anyway to cut long story short I had a serious chat with OH and made him see what a nasty **bleep** he can be, he did admit it was his way with dealing with it and if he can convince himself I’m fine (and me) then he though5 I would be! He was very upset and said he’s really struggling but told him that he can’t deal with it this way!! We ended up going to Cromer and taking the dog for a very fresh walk and got some chips. I’ve still not totally forgiven him yet!! And Meesh there’s gonna be no making up sex yet so he WONT be getting his end away, but will take on board your advise 😱I managed to do a couple of friends nails yesterday and def felt a lot better! Didn’t have a great nights sleep but I was so cold I think that kept waking me!!

Only 1 more injection to do....oh and I made OH watch while I done yesterday’s injection and he’s really needle phobic!

Sue, how you feeling this morning....yesterday sounded a bit traumatic but at least that’s another thing ticked off!!

Hope everyone else is ok, good luck claire Bell...go blow that whistle!

I'm on train for chemo 8 today. Trying to be pleased but excitement not really an emotion I associate with chemo day! I will be blowing my whistle! Don't think there is a πŸ”” at the Marsden!
