Well done Fairydust. Good omen seeing the girl with sparkly unicorn tiara and then the pussycats! I saw a beautiful rainbow on the way to my chemo on Tuesday and everything seemed to go smoothly for me too usuable cannula in first time which was a first! Rest up and drink plenty, hope yo don't suffer with too many SEs.
sending you 🦄✨🌟✨🦄✨🌟⭐️🌟🌈🌈⭐️💫💫🌈⭐️⭐️💫🌈❤️🤗
Hi all you sparkly ladies..glad you're ok and eating something naughty but nice!
I went to chemo today, and on the way I saw a little girl with her mummy. The girl was wearing a unicorn tiara on her head with a horn and sparkly sequins on the veil. So cute...So I had to tell her she looked lovely with it on..she just looked at me blankly, but her mummy smiled at me...
..and then during chemo, on the TV in the unit, they were showing a repeat run of Jo Brands cat show, which had me wanting a cat even more...So adorable. There was a 3 legged cat named Hoppy..Lol!
Chemo went well. They told me my neutrophils were 1.7 which was great for me and so my last FEC the horrible red stuff went in. My chemo nurse was lovely and chose a vein that hadn't been used before and cannula went in first time really easily..nurses today we're all amazing, so cheerful, talkative, nothing too much trouble and the professionalism was spot on..amazed by them. One of the oncologist doctors walked through to talk to a nurse or patient, and he had the hairest arms I've ever seen...still strangely sexy though..maybe I'm just missing my date!
Back home now in my pjs and in my slanket watching QVC which is hilarious this afternoon as Andi Peters is on it and he's always funny doing food. I'm eating Pizza Express pizza and strawberry milkshake.
Expecting to be on the loo later, tizer wee and everything else... 😞
Good morning All!
I am sorry you're in pain.please relax as much as possible today, hope you enjoy being home MrsMeow with TV, and hops you get home soon BlueLizard.
Chemo for me in less than an hour, best get moving! Kindle charged, pear drops in handbag, water on the go.
Be back soon!
can you all see this? Alfie was cuddling his youngest brother as he had been to the vet with a sore eye - adorable
Fairydust ragdolls are housecats that are very affectionate and two are twice the cuddles. These are my ED's and no longer living here instead I have a cat very like Merlot the ginger star of this thread - there are many ways to be a cat person!
BlueLizard I hope you get home but more importantly that you start to feel better there are a few of us at the same stage of T on here and it has been really helpful to hear of others experiences.
Hope we all think cool thoughts to keep the temps down xx
Glad you're home MrsMeow and sorry to hear you're in hospital bluelizzard! Hope you're both fighting fit soon!
Fairydust if if you're looking for adoring eyes I'm not sure you'll get it from a cat, mine more often that not looks at me with disdain or disgust or just mad eyes! Still love her though!
Mrsmeow, not sure how to post a pic think someone said you need a laptop to do that? I'm not that great with technology so can't help I'm afraid 😕
Hi all, I'm back from bloods, feeling like a pin cushion, I need to have so many, wish I could tell by looking at the samples whether the white cells were happy or not, but all looks the same to me..Lol.
So am at home dreading the phone ringing..if the phone rings it's the chemo nurses saying don't bother going to chemo tomorrow. If it doesn't ring I'm ok, and can go...Drinking fruit juice and water anyway, being optimistic...
CK, Meesh, if I don't get a cat with all your support, then I never will! I don't want to train one if it means wee in my slippers and but at the same time a kitten would be so cute.and I do have a garden it can play in.but would be worried it would get hurt as it could slip under the gate into the road, although it isn't busy, cars go up and down fairly regular, but there are other cats in my grove a d they're ok. They are huge though..really well fed...do cats come with a manual! Lol.
I do intend watching the Jo Brand show too Meesh, such cutie cats on the trailer for it, so the show itself must be marvellous!! Will watch later..cheer me up if the phone rings..
Hope you're all feeling ok, and enjoying some of the winter sun if you have any...great sunny where I am
CK, did you catch jo brands cats and kittens programme on channel 5 on Tuesday, after all the cat talk yesterday I downloaded it?
Cathy, I was wondering when the eyebrows and lashes go. I thought maybe some of my arm hair had already gone but after chemo3 Tuesday I know it hasn't unless they found the only place I have hair on my arm to stick the tape!! 😖
Apparently though brows are usually first back 6 weeks after last treatment and lashes 8 weeks (so a lady told me, she finished in July). So we shouldn't be without them too long. I'm a bit worried about putting stuff on brows and lashes in case all the rubbing to get it off pulls them out 😳
just noticed I have finally lost most of my leg hair(!!!!!), and arms are bald too now. Chemo 4 has seen them off. I was thinking I'd been lucky and am keeping my eyebrows and lashes, but I've just been on the August forum and it looks like chemo 5 might see them off. Oh well, better start drawing my eyebrows daily as they suggested at LGFB so I can draw them in the right place when they pop off.
Hope the bloods are good today Fairydust.
Aawwww MrsMeow, hope you manage to escape soon, just as you were getting used to that big screen too! How dare this chemo play such a mean trick on you. Wishing you well soon 🤗
Good luck today Fairydust with your bloods hope they're good enough for treatment tomorrow.
Im off for a reiki treatment later today, my first ever one, they called to say they've got a cancellation so I've got myself in there quick, my other sessions start next week I think (need to check as with chemo brain can't remember).
I also try and stay away from people for second week and work from home to avoid all the bugs and germs! I even moved out of the medications aisle of Tesco last Sunday when I realised where I was as thought the only people down that aisle are probably ill!
Have a good day the rest of you ladies, hope you're all coping with SEs ok.
Good morning all!
MrsMeow, I am so sorry you're in hospital! I do hope they let you out soon but only of course when they have fully treated you and importantly know what happened so it won't happen again!! My nightmare is to be admitted so I an sure you are wishing yourself back home asap. I send you all my best wishes too.
I have been reading about all your side effects everyone, and am terrified more than I used to be.. but you're all coping with it with humour and spirit, and I applaud you all. However there can be days when your humour and spirit fails, and we are here for you just as much then too..
Right, off to shower then go for bloods..might just force myself to take the nasty tasting bio-strath and drink the whole bottle just to be sure my neutrophils are high enough..and then have steak and honey for breakfast!! but then I'd never know if that helped or not or if my neutrophils increased naturally. .Lol..
Have a good day ladies, be back online soon..
