ANd to you mate. At least one thing good that came out of Wednesday was that I know the cyst is nothing to worry about just want the rest of it out of the way and clear now
Hiya so lovely to hear from you and that you are through the surgery, and that the wound is looking good I sincerely hope you are resting up well my dear (mumsie again 🙂 )
Lesley, keeping a stack of hay for you away from the other greedy mares. Hope you get a bit of peace and quiet - time to get out in the garden then you won't be able to hear anything!!xxx
Oooh Janey, I've been distracted for hours now - what do I choose? Sleeping/Neddie/Congrats - decided you deserve all three. First, as you've got pillows sorted, thought this device might help.
2nd: Think the gangs all here now. (If not, still got lots of space and hay left)
Lots and lots of love xxx (and thanks for spoiling me!)
Great news Janey and thank you! we are going out for food and drinks on Thursday which is my birthday then flying off to the sunshine on Saturday so very much looking forward to that! We are not big party people and prefer to spend our money doing what we enjoy 🌴🍹😎☀️Xx
Janey, fabulous news on both your Neddie status and lovely daughter’s imlroving health. Now you greedy lot, make sure you save some hay for me.
Ann, thank you for permission to be selfish. I did enjoy a couple of hours break yesterday, went to pharmacy for his meds then had a late lunch with a friend (plus a couple of vinos) and it did me the world of good. Back to the groaning, yelping and labour panting noises. Poor thing he didn’t get a wink of sleep last night, why is it pain is always worse at night?
Wishing you all a lovely bank holiday weekend, and expect your off next week for half term Clair? If so enjoy xx
Fabulous news on your mammo and daughters's improving health, yep a great way to end a worrying week for you my friend. Hope the vertigo gets sorted
Thanks Helena, yes it’s certainly a good age & we would never have thought he’d make it this far a few years ago, so he’s done well.
Glad to hear you have the appointment through now, it will soon be over.
Do be selfish, Lesley, it can be so draining & you need a break from it all. I am a nurse by background, but it doesn’t mean I’m any more able than anyone else when it comes to nearest & dearest, in fact nurses can be notoriously unsympathetic with family members!
Pain relief is more effective when taken regularly, could he be persuaded to do this, rather than wait till it gets worse? Do hope he turns a corner soon.
Do hope your daughter’s ok, Janey.
Thank you 😊Yes it's a pretty good feeling to see the years passing by, I don't think I realised quite how anxious I was until the letter popped through the door this morning! Heart in mouth moment while opening it 🙈 Cheers ladies 🍾🍷
Fab news, Jo & another year on. I’ll join you with the 🍾! xx
Jobey - fantastic- 3 years and all good. That feeling must be a darned good one !
Will be cracking open the Prosecco tonight that's for sure, 🍾🍷
Helena I'm glad to hear you have an appointment, I know you would rather not have to be going through this and I really wish you didn't but at least knowing when it's happening is half the battle Xx Jo
Feeling a lot calmer today and not so angry which helps.
Oh the poor girl, fingers crossed everything works out well for her xxx
Wow wee, that is all a definite cause to celebrate heartily now that good news xxx
Oh mate sending you loads of hugs, I can totally understand the need to "escape" for a while xxx
Sorry to hear that your dad is having problems, hope things improve for him, wow that is a brave age 🙂 xxx
Hooray Jo, Happy Triple Neddy days and lots more congrats for all the good news you are having.xxx
Thank you ladies , was guessing after 2.5 weeks it was likely to be ok but with my 50th next week and us off on holiday I really didn't want it hanging over me so thrilled to bits to have it out the way!! Also received some wonderful gifts from the ladies who went though this With me so was a bit teary when the post arrived! 😉
And to top it off daughter in law heard she has a new job this morning plus my youngest son who lost his last month has secured a few months temp work so great news all round in the Rees household today!! Xx
Whoop, Jo, get into the paddock with the other Newfie, so happy for you. Hopefully I’ll be along soon, week today I had my breasts clamped so bit too soon to hear.
Ann, sorry you’re having a rough time, my sympathies. Unless, unlike me you’re cut out to be nurse, I most certainly am not! Himself has gone down down since being discharged from hospital, breathing not too good and pain very bad. He’s coughing a lot which is agony, and of course the pain meds are not as much as his was getting in there while he was under supervision, plus he was on oxygen and a nebuliser which really helped. I know it’s awful of me but the constant groaning, sudden yelps, puffing (like woman do in labour) and coughing is wearing me down, it’s bliss when he drops off to sleep but that only last for minutes at a time because as soon as he moves it sets the pain off. He refuses to take the morphine except at night, just relying on the pills.
ive got to go out shortly to pick up more medication from the pharmacy in town which the doc is sending and I can’t wait to get out, I feel so selfish but I need a break.
Janey, hope your lovely daughter is on the mend xx
Jo, congratulations, welcome to the Neddie paddock! We always hope that no news is good news but it's nice to get it confirmed.
Lee, how are you doing, hope you're home and resting now, sending love and hugs your way.
Lesley, hope himself is a bit more comfortable now, and becoming an easier patient!
Yay woo hoo that is fabulous and if I could work out how to do all those emojis I would fill the page with them for you. You can now enjoy your 50th birthday celebrations. So so hapy for you.
I have had a call this morning to say that my MRI is booked for 5 June at 9am so at least that is sorted.
Got my all clear in the post today! 😄👍 Xx
Goodness, just catching up with you all, as my father has just had a couple of episodes of things related to being 92 really, so I’ve been caught up with all of that recently.
What a pain to have this continued uncertainty Helena, but as you say, it sounds like they’re not that concerned about it, but you could certainly do without all of this.
So sorry to hear about your daughter, Janey, it’s always so much more difficult when they’re so far away, any more news yet? ...& wishing her a speedy recovery.
Do hope the OH is behaving himself, Lesley, hopefully he’ll be feeling better soon, but rib pain is a b*****, the wine strategy sounds a good one though🍷!
Do hope you’re ok, Lee
love to you all
Well the broken nights and second hot flushes wont be a surprise to me, would be if I had to feed as well 🙂 🙂
Sense of humour back again today which is a good sign xx
Any news from Oz yet?
Oh I know, the issue seems to have been this cone biopsy that I had 30 years ago, they removed part of the nexk of the womb and then reattached it so that area is a lot smaller than it would normally be, added to not having had children or being older everything is a lot tighter. Perhaps it is a bit furtunate that I had this bleed as I would never have known, fingers crossed it will be the better scenario of just monitoring xxx
Sending you loads of love for your op today xxx
Now that is something to ask if I have to have one, if it can be done through keyhole as I think the recovery period is a lot better, is that right.
One question, my naivity, do they take your ovaries away as well?
Oh bless you thank you. Back to my fighting mode this morning and I will deal with anything this throws at me as I did with my bc, bound to not think that nearer getting results, but I have not come this far in my journey to let this beat me. And oh how I am going to need my wonderful fluffies and tough pants in the coming weeks.
Can you not ring to see if they have the results so that you can put it to bed before your birthday celebrations.
I have asked the nurse to ensure that the MRI is not on 11 or 12 June as I have celebrations for my 60th and I do not want the abiding memory of my 60th to be that I had an MRI, I want to take control of something in this process after everything I have been through so far, and it is too important for me.
Helena I'm sorry to hear you are still waiting on answers, seems to be the name of the game in this bizarre world weve all been thrown in to! I'm still awaiting Mammogram results 16 days later 🙄
I'm not surprised you are pretty fed up with it all, it's hard work keeping hold of your humour and positivity at times but we are all here with you Xx Jo
LadyB, what a rotten time you're having. It's hard to psych yourself up for such a procedure, then have to wait and not be sure what's going to happen, but there was good news in there. Don't worry about feeling lousy now - you are always such a positive person, you'll be back to that at some time soon, just allow yourself just to be a bit down - we love you either way!!xxx
Just been having a better catch up on yers.
Clairee - So glad you had good results from your mammo. Hope everyone else waiting on results has good news too.
Lee - Hope your op goes well tomorrow. We'll all be thinking of you and am wishing you a speedy recovery. One more thing out of the way for you to then move on and away from.
Lots of love to everyone again xxxxxxxxx Coooo - over 10,000. You don't arf talk a lot!! Lovely, lovely pics Rubes
Lady H, what a bugger of a day youve had bless you. Best I can say is hysterectomy was the best thing I ever had done, so if that’s the outcome of all the dramas you’ve been through, get it over and with and enjoy the time off work. Guess all you want is answers now, hang on in there and you can keep the big knickers as long as you need them.
Janey, hope your lovely girl is doing well and recovering. I suppose it’s a very anxious time for you especially her being so very far away.
I’m the other side of two large glasses of vino having had a stressful day so excuse any typos. Himself is doing ok but is in a lot of pain and it’s taking it’s toll on him and though it sound selfish me too, I’m Not the worlds best nurse and whereas he was sweetness itself with the nurses, ate everything put in front of him, me trying to get him to eat even a piece of toast, well, you’d think i was trying to poison him, though have to say it’s tempting....
Thank you for that.
I wish I could agree that I am feeling positive but not today my friend, feeling very unhappy and let down and lots of questions going round in my head. Hopefully I will be back to my usual self tomorrow
Sending you loads of hugs
Back home after a very long protracted day.
Briefly my CA125 bloods were normal so the cyst is benign no ovarian cancer.
The long and short of it is that they could not access my womb again today, and apparently 3 of them tried!! so I now have to have an MRI within the next two weeks (thankfully still under 2 week rule or it would have been 4-6 weeks), thinking is 1) fibroids which might mean a hysterecotomy, 2) nothing shows so monitoring, 3) the consultant said that my womb appeared to be larger than she would have expected for a woman of my age and as she had never examined me before she could not say if it had always been like that and was normal for me, so she had to tell me that they will be checking for womb cancer, but she did not think it was that.
So I have been everything for nothing today totally and absolutely p**ed off
Thank you for all your lovely hugs, words, and love
