Just back from a holiday in a very hot France which, unlike the UK, didn't seem to want to cool down overnight! A lovely time away though with a wedding in the middle of it all which made it extra special (although not for a relation, it was a friends' daughter who my eldest went to primary school with and the parents are close friends)
I can make most days so can fit in with anyone else's plans. I am happy to come down to Portsmouth as long as its not a Friday as the traffic home is too heavy. It makes sense as you are all down there and at the moment the weather is so much nicer than in the winter when I do it.
Oh, and just had recent cT scan resuts and everything is stable with no soft tissue mets (as they removed the one I had in the liver during my op). Staying on Fulvestrant and denosumab for now.
ps Anyone else with mets living in Hants/Winchester/Portsmouth area is welcome to join in just watch this page for details about time and place.
glad all is going well for everyone. I haven’t been on here much as Ive been to Scotland for a couple of weeks and going to France tomorrow for a week so I won’t be around for a June meetup. But July will be good for me.
Thats brilliant news Judy so pleased for you. Nicky glad you are doing well after surgery, be interested to hear all about it.
Hope everyone is getting to enjoy this lovely weather isn’t it gorgeous (sorry if it’s raining when you read this 😉).
I’m happy to make Portsmouth if it’s easier for most, but I don’t mind Winchester either.
Take care and love to all.
I was also going to update this thread as it’s gone very quiet. I’ve not been around much as I have been recovering from my operation as well as being busy with grandson plus a holiday. I’m not around for the rest of this month, a holiday planned some time ago in France which involves a wedding in the middle of it which we’re looking forward to, so I won’t be able to make any dates in June. However I should have more time in July so happy to meet up some time then. Maybe if a June meeting goes ahead another date can be set for July? I am happy to travel to Portsmouth (it’s a lot easier in the summer months although busier for parking once the school holidays start) or Winchester.
Hope to see you all soon and hope everyone is coping with treatments and SEs.
Been a bit quiet on here this month, Is anyone free for a meeting?
I could do week beginning 25th - any day
Winchester was mentioned, which is fine for me, what is most convenient for everyone?
just got back in from very soggy dog walk and seen that Carine and Judy not able to come today. Helen ive whatsapped you to see if you still want to go this afternoon as the weather is pretty awful.
Judy I hope you feel better soon.
Love to all X
Going to give it a miss this afternoon I'm afraid, don't fancy the ride to Portsmouth in the rain. If it seems to be stopping I may go along but I may just rest at home for a bit.
So is it the Spinnaker Tower Cafe on 2nd May or do people prefer somewhere else?
hello all thanks for your messages sorry I haven't been in touch this site never notifies me when there are any replies. I may possibly be able to come on the 2nd of May but my daughter usually has Wednesday afternoons off nowso i like to pick her up if i can. I am doing ok thanks the eribulin is not too bad im just very tired also had a quick hospital admission at the beginning of this week had a scan to rule out cord compression. Hope you had a lovely birthday dragoncarine and the others of you ok what with big operations and little babies!! in terms of next time I will be free after the 2nd of June and Mondays and Fridays are good to meet when I have treatment two out of three weeks it is Tuesday and Thursday I'm at the hospital. here's to feeling good and more energy xxx
Sorry I can’t join you this time ladies. I’m doing very well with my recovery and saw the surgeon for a follow up appointment yesterday when he said he was very pleased with my pregress. I go back in 2 weeks for a further follow up and hopefully will be driving soon after. It’s a big op, far bigger than I thought so the fact I feel much more like ‘me’ now is good!
Have a fabulous birthday Julia 🍾🎂🎉 and everyone else enjoy you tea and cake when you meet up in May.
i can do 2nd May 1.30. I’ve not heard from Pippy I hope she is ok. Hope your birthday was a fabulous one Carine. Mine is this Thursday and I’m sooo happy to be another year older bring on the cake 🍰 🎂 I say 😃. Congrats on the new baby Helen a busy time for you all. Hoping you’re continuing to do well Nicky and we’ll catch up when you are well recuperated in a few weeks.
Will check back to see if we can all do 2nd. Hopefully Pippy will be along shortly.
love to all
wishing you a speedy recovery Nicky, hope all is going well. Hope your birthday is fab Carine and much celebrating done.
For our meet ups I can’t do April but I can do 2nd May and then I’m off to Scotland for two weeks, so i could do 25th May, 30th and 31st.
Hope everyone is keeping well.
love to all
Is anyone free for an April meeting and where?
Place: happy to go anywhere
possible April date: I could do Wed 25th - other than that it would have to be May
possible May dates: Wed 2nd May, Fri 11th May, Wed 23rd May
What does everyone else think?
Enjoy your celebration, I won’t be able to make it as I had my liver resection last week and will be in recovery mode for some time. I hope you and everyone who joins you has a great time, raise a glass for me 🥂
To all other Hants ladies please organise another meet up between yourselves. I will not be able to get to any locations for at least another few weeks due to my operation and not being able to drive afterwards, or have the energy for that matter. Will miss not meeting up but would hope to be able to get to the one after.
I'm having a birthday (49) + anniversary of secondary diagnosis (1) celebration of being alive. Going out for meal at a local pub on saturday 21st April. More details via PM if anyone would like to join me.
Hiya, can't make it today. Hope you have a good time and will hope to join next time xxx
Hello everyone, will hope to come on Wednesday but I have got to stay in for an important delivery... And won't know the window until the night before. Bit fed up cos I have to start a different chemo on Thursday.
Hope to see you all xx
just back from the wonderful PB. Looking forward to seeing those that can make it on 21st.
Yes, I’ll be there at 1.30, cafe at the bottom of The Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth if there are any other ladies who want to join us who don’t know where we have met before. Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it and fingers crossed the weather stays clear.
Don't think I can make it for 1:30, I may be a little later than that - hopefully be there by 2ish
Hi lovely ladies
Wed 21st March is fine for me too - 1.30pm, usual place? My daughter's due date is 27th so hope to come along next Wed but if I'm not there you know why!
Celebrating sounds good Carine & NIcky - I have a significant birthday on the 2nd April we can throw in the mix!!
Enjoy the Approach at PB Julia.
Love Helen xx
looks like 21st March is looking good. Hopefully Helen and Pippy will be along shortly with their dates.
im off to a Penny Brohn again tomorrow. I’ll check in again to see if we have a set date when I get back.
love to all
What a great idea dragoncarrine, I'll celebrate with you as it's 10 years since my bone mets diagnosis - on April Fools' Day of all days - the worst joke I ever heard!!
I can do 21st March (plus most other dates but just saying the ones that others have said they can do) and at the moment the other dates in April except for 12th. Obviously if you're off for the school/college holidays it makes sense to fit in with you, and anyone else who needs to take time off or re-arrange their hours.
Also happy to travel to Portsmouth, it's much easier once the days get a bit longer, or Winchester but that's quite a drag for most of you as the majority seem to be coast based now.
Will check out the thread again for more info about where and when. Thanks for organising, it takes the pressure of me to do it and in fact there's no reason we can't take it in turn.
a great reason to celebrate always Carine 👏 I agree. Dates I can make in March are 20th, 21st, 28th. April I can do quite a few dates so I’m sure I can fit in with whatever is agreed on.
Hope all is week with you all and treatments are going well with good results.
love to all
When (& where) shall we have next meeting? Wednesay 21st March would be ideal for me.
March dates that I can make are: 13th to 15th; 21st, 22nd, 26th to 29th
April dates that I can make are: 5th to 13th; 17th to 30th.
Subject to change as I wait for appointments to come through.
It's coming up to a year since my diagnosis so I thought I might have a little celebration of still being alive in April if anyone would like to join me in that.
Location - anywhere works fine for me as long as I can park the bike.
so lovely to see you all last week. Judy I hope you’ve got a treatment plan now and Carine I hope your scan results were good and you enjoy Penny Brohn. Good luck for your scan next week Helen, hopefully get my results next week.
Love to all wishing all well with treatments
see you later today. Hopefully i’ll be there about 1.45
safe journies ladies.
Ladies, was planning to come along, but not getting much sleep now due to a uti and Cipro...blast it, so maybe next time....unless you all happen to be up and around Gatwick? Lol
Nicky, sounds like an excellent plan to go to Europe, I am kinda stuck at the end of a drip three weeks out of 4 and prob should have done that myselfxx
have a great time
I have looked up the trains etc, hopefully I will be well enough, I’ve been feeling a little odd since the Taxol, and have another tomorrow......could you just check the website the night before in case I’m not feeling well?
dont want you all worrying about where I am...will post which train I’m planning to go on, after the weekend.
