Ahh Sue he's adorable, part Bengal did you say? Will be very vocal! We have a tabby we inherited from our son who we swear has Bengal in him because he never shuts up!! 🙉 The very reason he now lives with us!! 😂
Oooh Sue - is Oliver a silver tabby? He looks absolutely wonderful - don't tell my muted tortie Ruby, but I really think tabbies could be my favourite, with silver tabbies at the top of the list.
Nice to hear from you Dellywellydingdong - I'm more myself now. Doc was brill as usual, am having knee x-ray & being referred urgently to knee consultant - may need a new knee as I scored 17 on Oxford Knee thingummybobby. Typical that today the pain has become so much better and I could actually get up and downstairs without crawling!
Jill,so sorry that you've had to cancel holibobs and that hubby is suffering, but now that he is experiencing pain himself, he might give you more sympathy (please ignore this if I'm being too rude/inappropriate/nosey/or any combination thereof). Hope the physio is helping you. Funnily enough , just phoned to see where my physio appt was for my hands (having waited 3 months), to be told that appt letter is in the post!! Hmmm.
I'm keeping right out of the sun, miserable non-sun worshipper that I am, just a hot sweaty mess-maker.
Big hugs to each and every one, and
Hi, lovely "Hug" girls
Just having a catch up on yers. So sorry to hear you're all suffering horrible pains and debilitating fatigue. What an absolute bu**er for you's.
Rubes - Have you had your appointment yet? Hope it sheds some light on your probs and you can get some further help.
Jill - Jeez, I'm so sorry you're still struggling so much, and about your hubby's wrist. Where are you off to on holiday, and when??
Sue - That's brill on your Mammo results. Forgive my ignorance, but why do you have another in only 6 months? I presume the course you're going on, is related to your ME/CF, is it? Will it be dealing with diet, exercise and such? Yeh, I'm so with you on the heat. I feel I'm being a real mis, this time of year, as I find Summers difficult to deal with fullstop, since menopause and hot flushes, nine years ago. Glad for other people to enjoy though. Roll on Autumn, I say.
Anyone heard from Jobelle? If you're looking in, Hi, and hope you're doing okay. Actually, I'll just send her a quick email.
Loads of love to you all
A little up date from me.....
After some consideration they have decided i have got me/cf s after all! Going on a course starting next month. It can't really be treated as such, just managed i suppose. But it's nice to have that diagnosis so that people can understand.
Also finally got my mammogram results....All Clear!! Huge sign of relief😀 Can breath easy again for another 6 months xxx
Anyone else struggling in this heat? Makes me feel quite ill at times.
Jill, sorry to see you're struggling with joint pains as well as other stuff. Thought I was out of the woods, then after having wrist pains, which have now disappeared, my knee is giving me jip & having to use my ma-in-laws walking stick (only indoors, not outside yet, but that might happen). Has been 2 months now, & actually now got an appt with the doc who takes me seriously, for next week, so although there has been quite a big improvement, I'm not right yet & it has really got me down. Fed up to the back teeth with just one thing after another .GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
Still, a specially big hug to you and to all the other lovely people here.
An oh so loving "Hi" from me. Been off radar due to b/band probs and own stuff. But just want you all to be okay, and soooooon. Yerrrrr/
Lotsa lovey dovey from me
Oh I am so sorry that you are still suffering so much with your joint pains. It is hard not to think the worst especially when you anxiety levels are high any way. Have they said how long you will have to wait for the apts.
Sending you loads of hugs and love
Oh mate sorry to hear about that but Jill's suggestions sound worht pursuing just to see if they might help xx
Flipping heck that is a good few weeks now, as you say I would have thought if there was anything they would have been in touch, but again they do not think about the person on the other end of the mammo who is anxiously waiting for the "all clear" letter. I am getting heartly p**"ed with hospitals at the moment and trying to get someone to answer a blasted telephone!!
Sending you hugs xxxx
All very quiet on here.......?
So, finally had my fatigue assessment today ( yes, I know, went to the gp in Nov last year!) Turns out i have chronic fatigue, but not chronic fatigue syndrome! Not bad enough apparently!! Even though I sleep at least 10 hrs and it takes me most of the morning to get going! So I don't really know where I go from here. Back to the gp I suppose.
Still waiting on the mammogram results....would like to think that no news is good news.....
How are we all today?
OMG no wonder you are sore, 40 minutes was enough for me!!
Sending you some very gentle hugs my dear
Crikey! That is a long time.....not sure I could stay still for that long.
Had mammogram today...results and ultrasound Tuesday.
Sending hugs xx
Hope everyone feels ok today. Spent 90 minutes tightly strapped in the mri scanner last evening so feeling a bit sore today.
Duo you know what? I think muddly
and Sue yes why don’t we all chip in.....
‘’or we could all have a Large punt on the l otters...should be enough members to ensure a win, surely!
Thank you Helena, sue, jill etc for stepping up to the parapet....yes, you know what? I fancy a caravan or a second(holiday )home
oh, came home today, in a bit of pain and slightly muddy. But well cope hopefully.
today was my day 3 so worst day! But hopefully getting better....week off now...but who knows what the mri will sayxx
love to you allxc
12 June hit the big 60 😞 , to be honest it doesnt bother me, just grateful to have got there. Its amazing Taryn and I were talking about our 50th, it was hard to believe it was 10 years ago, where did that time go xxx
Oh mate that is hard, I really feel for you.
I am fine just waiting for my MRI now on 5 June.
My best friend and I went out to lunch yesterday at a posh michellin star restaurant. When we have a special birthday year we push the boat out and do something. It was totally unbelievable, a treat for the tastebuds and an experience of food that I have never had before.
Very overcast here today but I am doing my washing to put out as it is very warm so hopefully will dry
i seem to have the silver medal for being most frequent poster on here just now?
are you all off on the riviera?
How are you, Jill? Helena? Belle? Haven’t heard a single whisper from ?Belle for ages.
im envious if you are all away as I’m tied to a drip 3 out of four weeks with no clear end in sight.
Ooh, HELENA sorry, I think my iPad made hysterotomy into hysterectomy. I had realised that’s what you were having..hope the results are the very bestxxx
Haven't been on for yonks, so way behind on yers.
Jill - hope you get some answers and help with your leggies (I know, baby talk sorry!!) at the rheumatology dept. It must be so horrible for you. Bad enough your mental state isn't particularly good, without the joint probs and discomfort of. Awww, I feel for you. And yes, when you think about it, hormones - oestrogen espesh, plays a huge part in bone health. Is why menopausal women are often prone to osteoporosis.
Mishy - A big warm welcome to you. I can remember when studying arthritic joint disorders in my Podiatry training, that Psoriatic Arthritis was considered the worst, most destructive and painful, out of all of 'em, along with gout. Perhaps your chemo had steroid elements in it that quelled and dampened your arthritic probs, so you're now feeling it again now since you stopped the chemo. Chemo alone's so destructive to all sorts, in the process of treating the cancer elements - bit of a Catch 22. What probs were you suffering on the Methotrexate?? I do hope you find something that helps. Anyway - that's grrreat you've fininshed your chemo and rads - a huge massive step over with - yahooo. Well done gal !!!
Hey Moijan - Sorry you're having leg probs too. Crikey you lot. You don't hear about moth infestations very much these days, perhaps due to the advent of synthetic carpets. There's got to be something, aromatherapy oil wise, to treat them. What did they used to soak moth balls in?? Made me laugh, your OH's comment on the sh*t word. Sounds like he may divorce you, if you uttered the 'F' word !!!
Lady H - Am going to have a read of you on the Fluffs thread. Anyone heard from Jbelle belle??
Bye for now girls, lotsa love Dellywelly xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I watched the wedding on the tv it was lovely so natural xx
I am having a hysteroscopy not a hysterectomy
Helena, I feel for you also? Are you camping out in Windsor? As well?
i did think that would have been lovely...had I been a lot younger and fitter and cancer free,
‘’am sorry about your hysterectomy Helena...hope it goes wellxxx
love and hugs MOIJANXX
Oh JILL, inn so glad your soh has not desertedyou! Did you -and the rest of you lot watch the wedding?
Jill sorry your legs don’t work! Don’t they work at all? Scary stuff...mine are stiff after each chemo, but I manage to coax them back into line more of less......I find my chiropractor is very good....sciatica is the bane of my life tho....I have to sit on extra cushions! Will be pm ing you laterxx
oh is coping...just. His op is 1/6 now. Xx
oh and our house is moth infested! Which is a complete joy.....oh yesterday Jill. I got cross with my done said the s**t word...Siri heard me and said’i Hope you don’t kiss your mother with that mouth’
made Me smile....wonder what the f word would provoke him to Say?
Oh mate I feel for you, yes it is another challenge for you but you can do it my friend xxx
