Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
Thanks for those dates Nicky, hope you're ok at the moment.
I can do Tues 5th, Wed 6th, Mon 11th, Mon 18th, Tue 19th, Mon 25th, Tue 26th. I am still on weekly chemo on Thursdays which involves a blood test on Wednesdays most weeks. Also have MRI & a CT to look forward to in Feb!
Hopefully we can sort a day convenient for all but if another day is better for everyone please don't worry about me.
Take care of yourselves.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

Im not sure if the Southampton meet up is happening but unfortunately I can’t make any date this week due to some other commitments that have come up. Hopefully it does take place.

I’m going to suggest a few dates in Feb though to get the ball rolling with that, and meeting up again in Portsmouth as it’s easiest for most of you as you all live near there. 

I am free next week except for Monday (5-7th) and all of the following week (11-14th) plus possibly a couple of days the week after (18-20th). Maybe you can all say what day/s are best for you so we can sort a date when the majority of us can meet. I haven’t included Fridays for me as I do find the traffic too busy driving home, whatever time I leave! And there will be days in the weeks I’ve mentioned that I will become busy on, but so far haven’t committed to anything else just yet.

Anyone with secondary BC is welcome to join us it’s not restricted to Hampshire but as we all started off meeting more centrally in Winchester we called the thread what it is. We generally meet at 1.30 in the cafe at the base of the Spinnaker Tower if we are in Portsmouth but don’t have a set place if we meet up in other towns.

Lets see if we can get something organised 😊🍰

Hi ladies I can still make 12 on Monday in Southampton if Seza gets back to us. If not shall we rearrange another date? I’m leaving my hub in charge of carpet fitting at the new house on Monday. Anything could happen!!!!!

Hello everyone 

I’m sorry I’m going to pass on the meet up in Southampton on 28th as it’s not so great to get to. Hope your wobbles have eased Dragoncarine. 

I look forward to our February meet up.

love to you all

Hi everyone
I could possibly come to Southampton on 28th but please can you come up with a venue & time between you all and let me know. Somewhere in the West Quays outlet would be easy for me coming from the Island. I can't say for definite if I can make it as yet though, sorry.

If there is anyone free on 28th or 31st who would like to meet up I would be grateful to make contact with someone in a similar situation and just have a chat. Feeling a little isolated and would just be great to hear there is hope talk to someone who understands. Xx

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

I was about to post on here with some suggestions of dates and then realised that there’s been plenty of activity since I last read the thread when Judy replied to seza last week.

Unfortunately I can’t do 21st or 28th either Winchester or Portsmouth. I could probably get to either on one of the other days mentioned 29, 30 or 31 but not sure at this stage which ones I would be free on as I’m still popping in on a regular basis to my Mum (my Dad died unexpectedly in October which is why I couldn’t make the last meet up)

If not I am relatively free (give or take days for treatment, visiting Mum and baby sitting my grandson!) so would hopefully be able to meet up in February.

As an update from me I’m still on fulvestrant (and Denosumab) so my treatment is pretty easy in comparison to what I have been on over the past 3-4 years, something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say again. My latest scan results were all stable although one very small lymph node had grown a millimetre or two. My liver is still NED (no evidence of disease) since my resection last April which is the best news to start the New Year with.

Hipe to catch up with you all soon but it will have to be 29th or later, or February now.

Hello everyone, welcome Seza sorry you’ve found yourself on here but this little meet up group is lovely and hopefully you will find it very helpful too.  We usually meet in Gunwharf at the Spinnaker Tower cafe but I think next time it will be in Winchester.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

Sorry I can't meet up next week. We are away for the weekend celebrating our eldest daughters 30th birthday - in Disneyland Paris of all places!  However she wanted it and our grandson who's now 15 months will love it! We're not back until next week and I have a few things to catch up on during the rest of the week, including babysitting, so can't make any other day.  Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and hope treatments are continuing to work well for you and side effects are minimal, especially Helen with the neuropathy SE.

Hi all

I’m sorry I can’t make 12th. I know everyone is very busy but on the off chance anyone is free I could do 13th or 14th. If not then I’ll see you all in the New Year.  Hope everyone is doing well and treatments running smoothly.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi everyone
Christmas is coming and I was wondering if anyone was free Wed 12th Dec for a catchup? I have a busy December and this was the only day free for me! Have been in touch with Nicky and she is unable to make December but would like to meet up in January perhaps in Winchester.
So if you would like to meet at Gunwharf 1.30pm Wed 12th Dec let us know!
I hope that you are all managing treatments and keeping ok.
Love Helen xx

Good morning ladies, I’m having to go into work this morning and don’t finish till 2pm. If I don’t make it by 2.30 then something has delayed me and I’ll have to miss meeting. I’ll be sad to miss you if this happens but next meeting I may be bringing another secondaries lady with me who is interested 😀xx

Hi ladies

Ive just returned from holiday and have been checking the dates put up by Helen. I should be able to make 10th October but will know a bit nearer the time so I’ll check in on here a bit closer to the day.

Hope everyone is doing well on their treatments and good luck for anyone getting results.

Hi everyone, hope you're all ok & coping with treatments.
Just returned from holiday this afternoon & realised that I can't make 26th (tomorrow) for a catchup, sorry. How about either Wed 3rd or 10th Oct?

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies

I hope you have all been able to enjoy our long, and sometimes very hot, summer. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lonely DC, it is a lonely old world out there for us secondary ladies. As to dates I can’t do 26th as we are away but can do the other dates. If most of you can do 26th please go for that rather than wait for all of us to agree on another date later on?

Good luck to everyone waiting for scan results (Helen and Judy), I’m also having a scan in a weeks time and then getting the results once I get back from holiday, I’m sure they will be available just before we go but I’d rather wait until after!

Hi everyone
Hope you're all coping with your treatments and have been able to enjoy the summer.
I think we must be due a catchup sometime soon so I don't know if anyone has some dates free? Remember that Carine said she wasn't working Wednesdays from September so anyone free Wednesday 5th, 12th, 26th Sep , 3rd, 10th Oct for cuppa and cake?
Take care, Helen xx

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Sorry ladies, is it possible to do 24th instead?  I know I was the one that said 23rd (Monday) but I've now got something on that I need to do for my daughter so can't make that afternoon due to the long drive home.  Hope this gets read and everyone knows which date it is. Maybe we can all confirm? I won't travel all the way down to Portsmouth  if it's a date that a group of us can't make - apologies Judy !!

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi

As most of us have replied with the dates we can do shall we opt for next Monday ,23rd? I realise DC can't make it but we havent yet come up with any dates later in the month or August so hopefully we can find a date for next time that you can make DC. The rest of us seem to be able to make 23rd and it may be slightly quieter if some of the schools are still in term time (although i'm not sure how many as I've looked at the termtime calendar for Hants). In any case I hope the Mums and kids  havent got bored by then so don't all head off to Gunwharf!

If anyone, other than DC, can't make 23rd can they post and we could change it to 24th as everyone seems to be able to make the Tuesday as well (I've only suggested the Monday to get a date fixed)

Have a good rest of the week and hopefully catch up with as many of you who can make it next week.

Hello all, glad to hear everyone’s doing well. Just back from France and it was very hot but we had a pool to cool down it thankfully. We went with the family there were 13 of us and had a fabulous time. 

 

I can’t do 16th but I can do 23rd, 24th, 25th. Not the 30th as that’s drugs day. I can do 10th but that’s tomorrow and prob way too short notice for everyone. 

 

Hope everyone is keeping cool look forward next meetup,

 

love to all

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

sorry, none of those dates work for me - however AFTER Wed 25th I'll have some free time (last day of School). I do believe that MOST Hampshire Schools have 23rd as last day of term, and lots of Schools are letting kids finish on 20th. we're doing a couple of extra days because we started a couple of days late in January. Also I've asked for Wednesdays off from September so if anyone else is free on Wednesdays that's going to be a good day for me.

Re: Support group for secondary BC hampshire/Winchester?

Hi ladies and thanks Helen for coming up with a list of dates. 

I cant make 16th and it may be a bit close to get everyone who’s interested to reply in time for 10th (although I’m OK for that date) . If it’s neither of those dates could we make it the next week (23rd onwards) as I think the schools won’t have broken up and Gunwharf will be a bit quieter. Having said that I realise that might be a problem for dragoncarrine so we’ll see what everyone else replies with and go for the date that suits the most.

Have a good weekend everyone, enjoy the sun and the football if you’re a fan.
