Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Thank you Shi, that's a lovely thing to say xx I'm ok thanks, I think steady progress is the correct terminology! I don't feel as if I've got the same amount of stamina that I had before I started chemo yet, but when I look back just a couple of months I can see I'm improving. Smiley Happy Had my first lesson observation yesterday since going back to work! xx

Thanks Shi, I've found them Smiley Happy I don't know what the bell means though?! It looked like I'd hugged 90+ people and I don't remember doing that! I only worked out how to give one a few weeks ago! Smiley Happy

You're always helping other people xx but how are you? xx

Hi jencat, if you go up to the top on the right you should see a bell an envelope and your icon, click on the envelope and you can do pm’s from there, this is using your phone though as I don’t use anything else, hope this helps 😘😘💕💕✨✨Shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi Chaffinch, I hope you're doing well. That picture of us all brings back some happy memories Smiley Happy Wish I'd thought about sitting elegantly like the others in the front row are though!  :/  xx

Does anyone know how to find pm's on this new format?! I can't find mine! Can't say I'm keen on it! Went to look at Chaffinch's comment on our thread and I found I was on page 364! Smiley Sad  xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi cherry B, good to hear you kept most of your hair and that you're doing well. I managed to keep a fair amount of hair too, although was sporting a bit of a friar tuck look by the end 😂 But nothing could make me wear my wig (Shirley). Did you ever go and collect that wig? 😂 I had cut my hair short prior to treatment and it grew back and blended in really quickly so no ken Dodd look for me 😊I just look like I have a 🎤 head! 😱

 

Jencat, hope your course went ok! Buddyfan, hope you're doing ok and that your arm is healing.

 

Shi, hope you've had a good weekend 😊

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Good evening Ladies. Very long time no speak. Just wanted to put in a brief appearance to wish everyone the happiest and healthiest of New Years!! Hope everyone’s doing really really well. I’m great/knackered. For those of you who remember me and my hair obsession I managed to hang on to almost all of it with the evil cold cap but what I didn’t reckon with was the hair that I did lose is now back and doing its finest Ken Dodd impression. As you can see, still focusing on the priorities... Ha.

Love and best wishes to everyone

Cherry Bakewell 🍒 xxx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi Shi, Happy New Year! Can't remember if I've already wished you it, but it won't hurt to wish you it again! I hope it's a healthy and happy one for you x

Work is going ok thanks and I'm enjoying it, my class are lovely. I still tire easily, but my stamina is gradually improving-I can now work a whole day and do something afterwards! I've been on a course this morning and was told yesterday that I'm being observed teaching in a couple of weeks time,so back to normality! (I escaped it last term!) I panicked a bit at first, but then thought if I can survive chemo,what's an hour of being watched! (A bit of a dramatic comparison I know!) How are you and all the gang? I miss them all not being on here! Smiley Sad Say hello from me! xx

Buddyfan have you tried Insurancewith for your travel insurance ? A friend with secondaries got a reasonsable quote from them - was Europe though and a friend with multiple health issues got a decent one for Canada with them .

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi all, I can't blame the builders for my fall as I walked backwards into them!

My hair has a tight curl at the end of it but then it looks just wavy. I'm still waiting for it to flop and wearing hairbands from SeaSalt. Now hunting for travel insurance for caribbean. Saga said £3000 😣😣😣Whaaaaaaaaat! 😣😣😣 Looks like we'll never be going to Americas again. 😥

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Happy new year everyone! I've given up making New Years resolutions as I never stick to them 🙄 Buddyfan, hope that arm is better soon. What a difference a year makes, I was just happy to be able to celebrate and see the new year in. What has everyone else got planned for this year?

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Meesh ❤️❤️Thanks for link😘😘 you always make me look at positive in everything. think if my curls were beautiful like yours I wouldn’t be such a curl humbug and the fact I’ve forgot my lovely amazing curl cream for holiday so instead of meesh do as you are told curls, I’ve got clown hair as you saw earlier. Mishy yep Shirley is about right, Shirley blooming temple 😁hope everyone is enjoying weekend and have great New Years 💃🏻💃🏻🕺🕺💃🏻💃🏻💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hello everyone! Hope you all had good xmases. I enjoyed my soft cheese, just because I could eat it this year 😂 Buddyfan sorry to hear about your arm, how annoying but it's good to hear you're doing ok apart from that.

 

Mishy/ Shi, I can only imagine how you feel about your curly hair. You have to forget everything you know about your old hair and start again. It took me years to learn to accept mine and work out what to do with it and I was born with it 😂🤣😂 It's funny as people always say to me "oooh you're so lucky to have curly hair, I'd love mine to be curly". What people don't realise is that curly hair never looks tidy, there's always at least one bit that's not doing what you want it to, you just have to embrace that as tomorrow it'll be a different bit 😂 The good thing though is that it has plenty of body 😂🤣😂 here's something that I thought you might like, you might have to copy and paste the link as I'm not very good at technology!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Haha Shirley I still get it sometimes ermine hello I finished Chemo in Dec 17 I should bloody hope so 😂😂😂 my mother in law told me that it's a mess I need to get something done with it 😂😋😂 I just want to grow it though and if I keep getting it cut it will never grow I think I will soon be rocking a good haircut have you had your hair cut at all I never touched the sides always just the back then the girl evened them out last time to a short layered Bob type its still curly wavy the crown is still a long way off being even with the rest hence the layered stacked back she put in!
It reminds me how far I have come when I look at Ella her birth spurred me on through chemo and beyond she's my little star

Mishy I’m so pleased you had lovely day with Ella ❤️❤️She is growing up so quickly now it doesn’t seem 5 mins since her 1st birthday. You know mishy if we leave our hair I recon we could be rockin a Jon Bon Jove circa 1986 soon or the girls from heart, we could really boof it out 🤣😂🤣😂🤣my old boss saw me before Christmas and said is that your real hair, cheeky 🤬🤬felt like saying no I got your cut offs from your barber and stuck them on so I could look just like you... muppet 😁hope everyone has 💃🏻💃🏻🕺🕺🕺💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻Planned for New Year 🤪🤪🤪🤪💕💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

😁😁😁hi mishy, I know what you mean about the quid thing, it goes a bit like that bloke from flock of seagulls if you don’t hair spray it down a bit doesn’t it 😂🤣😂🤣😂 I just keep thinking let it get long enough, go through the bingo, mullet, mop head look and then by summer should be able to straighten it without looking like Liam Gallagher a twin or the bloke of the inbetweeners which is what happens currently when I straighten it 😂🤣😂🤣😂💃🏻💃🏻🕺🕺💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻I just get the jukebox on and 💃🏻💃🏻🕺🕺💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻bit of rhythm is a dancer by snap this morning 💃🏻💃🏻🕺🕺💃🏻💃🏻🤪🤪🤪😁💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Buddy I hope you are OK, what a shame you broke your arm, I hope you blasted them for leaving the scaffolding out!! Nice to hear from you again I hope apart from your arm everything is going well
Had a lovely Christmas Ella looked gorgeous as always and loved opening her presents talking of hair she has loads its been a family joke me and her grew our hair together once her baby fuzz grew out mines a bloody mess again I can't do anything with it again it grows so erraticly and I reckon I could easily now pass for an eighties new romantic got a but of a quiff thing going on the girl is cutting it on 14th Jan and I'm praying it's finally going to be a proper proper style finally the texture is so different now really dense and thick with a mind of its own I continue to grow in the hope it will finally look how I want it to but as you say Shirley it's hair Doris is no longer the look but still equally as embarrassing I envy those who got straight hair 😂😂😂

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Oh buddyfan ❤️❤️❤️Thank goodness you didn’t bang your head or anything, have they been able to set your arm? You are a saint, I’d have been off in a hotel by now if I were you, you really do have patience where your oh is concerned with your home renovations. Hows the bingo hair doing? My bingo hair is doing well, shame it’s not the 80’s we’d be right on trend 😁😁😁but hey it’s hair and I don’t look like a turtle head car air freshener 🤣😂🤣😂🤣have a happy New Year everyone. Mishy hope Ella’s had amazing Christmas and hope you’ve had great nana time ❤️❤️❤️💕💕💕✨✨✨Shi xx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Jencat, what a wonderful Christmas pressy. Congratulations. My not so good news is that I broke my paralysed arm the week before Christmas. Silver linings, in and out of A&e in an hour, inc x ray, it's not related to my cancer or osteoporosis just that I have no muscle around my bone to protect it when I tripped backwards over some scaffolding boards! Also, didn't realise until two days later and it was four times it's normal size, very bruised and most worrying it was warm. Apparently normally a very painful place to break but as my arm is paralysed I don't get pain from it. I can even sleep on it. It did aggravate my neuropathic pain for a few days but that seems to have calmed down now. Anyway, enjoy the New Year ladies.
