My dear Sianie,
I am so very sorry to hear your news. As the others have said, both you and your Mum felt like part of the group so please, if you need to, feel free to pop back on we are here for you if you need us.
You were obviously very close and this will be a very hard time for you and your family but by leaning on each other and supporting each other you will find a way through. Your Mum will always be with you in your heart and that love will give you strength and one day you'll find the happy memories, the love and the laughter will help to overcome the pain and the loss.
I hope you can feel the big collective hug coming from the group. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. RIP your darling Mother xx
Glo thank you so much for taking the time to type the info for me, I am doing some but not all of that so am sure it will be useful, at least I can feel I'm doing what I can, it's very kind of you to make that effort for me. How do you get on with it? I am feeling quite a bit better so am hoping it's on the turn. Thanks again! xx
Popped into coffee shop for a quick peppermint tea, tummy much better but still not up to yummy cakes yet. Thank you for all your kind wishes.
Glo I'm not on Cape but I would be interested in looking at any info you have. I've been eating a low fibre diet and nursery foods ie jelly etc the last few days, my worry now is that whilst things seem to be calming down a bit I might now get constipation again - can't win can we.
Pippie I have heard of the possibility of treatments affecting our eyes and sometimes even our hearing. Another double edged sword for us I'm afraid.
A quick reminder that it's live chat tonight, if you haven't tried it come along, we have a laugh as well as talking about issues.
Hope all treatments scans etc are going well and big hugs to all those struggling
I know that I haven't really posted since I joined but I have been reading your posts on and off for a while.
I have finally started a treatment plan after being diagnoised in January, it did seem to rather along time.
I had an optician appointment to day and was told that I have the start of cataracts in both my eyes, caused by chemo and radiation (for my primary), please can anyone else tell me if they have experienced the same, this just seems odd to me.
Hope you are all having a nice day, and if you are having treatment that is being kind to you.
Must popin to the cafe, it sounds way better fun than my local.
Afternoon lovely ladies, just got back from my first session at the Beechwood Centre, met some lovely ladies all who are in a similar position to me, really enjoyed it and I have chose to have reflexology has my therapy treatment, they demonstrated a few different kinds of therapies but that looked like the one I would probably enjoy the most. Then we had lunch which was a 3 course treat : - ) mmm strawberry gateau for dessert....very naughty!!!
Not started packing yet don't go til next week (28th) last night we booked to go up the newly built World Trade Centre it opens on the 29th which is our anniversary so really looking forward to that.
Funnyface, I have googled your daughter's dress it's beautiful, will have a look at yours later too.
Chocolates, hope your daughter is feeling better today.
Well ladies I'm going to give the coffee shop a miss today as I have already overindulged on coffee and cake for one day!!!
Hugs Janette xxxxxxx
Headed to work..but thought I thought would share my dress with you today while your sipping tea and coffee in the cafe. ..www.marysbridal.com ...go to mothers gowns...#S13-M2180...shows it in lavender but mine is a deeper purple blue called pansy...did the fittings yesterday..
Lyn ..how is your sons wedding plans coming along?
Janette is your bag packed?
Hi Chocolates -
Have a mocha on me -
Re filling in Blue Badge form - I'm finding a bit difficult at the moment because I'm relatively well, taking puppy on slow two mile walks now on chemo break (but needing a twelve hour sleep after that!) - imagining how I am if fully chemo'd but someone told me to fill form out as if you were at your worst. It feels like lying at the moment. Any tips, you or other peoples?
I know just how you feel about the children. At the moment I'm not saying anything about latest scan and the sympathetic hugs etc from nurses (which told me more about the scan than anytihng else!) cos DS is doing his ASs and DD is working abroad and I don't want her worrying. But it is def the worst part. Apart from the occasional session of pure fear in the middle of the night.
OK time to order a capuccino... with brandy ... anyone?
Sorry I've not been able to pop into the new coffee shop but have been having issues with my tummy again, was really bad on Thursday with vomitting added into the bloating, pain and dodgy bowels so being very careful with food so no cream buns for me at the moment
Chocs hope your daughters rash clears sounds uncomfortable for her. Glad to hear your tests went ok and hope results come quickly and confirm all is well.
Funny Face, have had a look, your daughter will lokk stunning and the venue is lovely, you will be so proud and will have a wonderful day.
Marie, I'm sorry but I think I'm going to have to have a word with somebody to see if we can sort out this fetish you seem to have for dressing up, particularly the provocitive costumes!
Helen, that's a lovely gift you've made for your son.
Our lovely Chris has spent some time with both Grandaughters and whilst she gets very tired she is still managing to enjoy her family time.
Hope you've all managed to have a reasonable weekend and hope I can join in with the lovely cakes next week, I must say they look gorgeous! xx
Happy to share the some of the wedding plans with you! It sure would be a blast if we could get together and make wedding crafts. I be the lot of us could be quite creative.
Chocolates hope your daughters rash disappears.
Have a great day!
Chocolates so pleased with your news.
Not sure if I can get my high heels on with thick black socks. Love this cafe Belgium chocolates with our coffees. Cream teas this afternoon yum yum.
Take care everyone, good luck with scans and treatments.
Got to go Bears need a massage.!
love Nurse Windsor
