Yay Jencat! That's another thing ✅ off for you!
Had my PICC line removed this afternoon-thought I was having a line flush as usual, so that was a nice surprise! What I didn't expect was how emotional I was going to feel, had a little cry whilst the lovely nurse removed it! I think when I had my last chemo I knew I'd still got SE's to get through, but having the line removed, it really felt as if it was the end of chemo xx
Hi Karebear, had my PICC line removed this afternoon! My last chemo on 23rd Feb, so it was left in for a while afterwards x
Hi Chaffinch, so sorry about your dad..that's very sad to hear, he will get all the support and medical aids he needs in palliative care, more than in standard care, so he will be in more comfortable surroundings than ever before..Hope your journey and visit goes well..x
I haven't got a creative bone in my body, so envy you making your own cards, it's meant to be relaxing doing creative activities, so hope you have a relaxed and serene International Women's Day.
I think bc and chemo has made me more emotional than I already was-YD found her pet mouse dead this morning-she's not cried, but I have! xx
Chaffinch, I'm so sorry to hear the news about your dad x It must be so difficult being so far away and not being able to visit easily xx
Great choice of tune Shi!!
OH seems on best behaviour today reckon his sister had a word!! Got back from hospital and he’s done all cleaning! I’m now off with a friend for a bit of shopping!!
Have a great day everyone!!
Good news for both Sam and Ali, hoorah 🎉🎊🎉🎊💃🕺🏻💃🕺🏻I bet you're both so pleased.
Jellytot I hope today went ok for you, sending ❤️and 🤗🤗🤗
Had a nightmare rads session, I was in there for 50-60 mins and so long I reckon I worked through a whole album as I heard the same bob Dylan song twice. The imaging machine broke and I had to lie there while they fixed it, then they weren't happy with my positioning and had to re-do it and the images. I was so cold I was shaking and they had to give me a blanket 😰
On a more positive note came home and the kitchen is really really taking shape now and I'm getting quite excited 🤗
Well done Ali on your pathology report - it feels so good to get that news doesn't it? I too was fortunate enough to hear that news - it sure feels amazing - enjoy! Have you got to have any rads? xx
Well done Sam on your clear CT scan result x
Yes, sending my love and thinking of you Jellytot xx
Morning ladies...had a good sleep last night so feeling more myself today! OH hasn’t really apologised but I know he knows he’s in the wrong....my friend gives her hubby 3 **bleep** up cards each year...I told him he’s lost all his in one hit!! Did have a word with his sister yesterday and he will see her tonite when he’s at footy so hopefully she will tell him off! He really doesn’t make any sense as he’s made sure there’s staff today in case I don’t feel well 😱 Think I will get an appoint with docs about tummy issues, trouble is I have to ring first thing to get an appointment but I’m at hospital 😱
Meesh that’s quite interesting about boosters....wasn’t sure what was different about them? Mine don’t start until Friday, have an end of treatment review that day too! Did notice yesterday that I cld feel a slight twang when they zapped 😱
Buddy/Meesh I’m good for 22nd too 😊
Right better go get ready and get off to Rads No 14!!
Karen, I hope OH wassuitably remorseful about last night. I hope you get your tummy sorted too.
Sam, try not to worry no news is good news!
I had my first booster today, it went ok. They did some more images and then I got 3 zaps, they had to use what they call a bolus (small square but of rubber) as the location of my tumour bed is quite near the skin surface.
Buddyfan, I hope you're doing ok. I might be able to do 22 March now, although I haven't booked it yet! 😊
Morning ladies....oh what an evening I had! Meal out with OH was lovely at lunchtime but as usual I ended up with chronic stomach ache...I really can’t wirk out what triggers it but it’s doing my head in! Subsequently I cldnt bare it by about 8pm so came upstairs...OH started acting like a spoilt child and reckoned it was worst birthday he’s ever had, we had staff in but he stayed down drinking and getting anyone he cld persuade drunk, music was blasting out people were singing, dart tram were trying to play darts and I lay in bed wishing stomach would go do one! It got worse as the night went on...so much so that at 1130i had yo get dressed and go sort out a problem with the pizza man who said he hadn’t been paid and called the police 👮♀️ how I haven’t killed anyone I don’t know! Anyeway im gonna get up (obv Im in spare bed 😡) go to rads and by the time I return hopefully he may have vanished in a puff of smoke 💨🤪
sorry to have to be so ranty but im still in angry mode...if I wasn’t in the middle of rads I’d be doing a flit and go stay with my sister!!
Hope you all have a good day today, sorry I can’t even remember what to reply to anyone else 😱😱
