You're so righte Kim, it's amazing how you can keep quiet about such a major things and carry on a conversation without even mentioning what's happening within!!
Thanks Jill, I should have the results back after my holiday, end of Julyish so before the radiotherapy!!
Yes daughter off at u7.30 this morning and I've already seen evidence of the weeks activities.... alcohol!!
Oh to be 18 again, it's going to be a tense week, good job I've got stuff planned to keep me occupied xx
Welcome Cazmo, isn't it nice just to do something 'normal', hope you were able to forget things for a while at the party.
Despite lack of sleep I took a walk to meet my youngest daughter from work, I felt a bit guilty cus I usually drop her off but as I'm not driving yet she walked 40 minutes this morning so it was worth it to see her beautiful face :-). And an extra bonus I bought a nice tankini with post-surgery support in the sale at M&S for my holiday on 11th July.
Now to relax for the rest of the day before my genetic app tomorrow!! Take care everyone xx
Suzie - I assume you are under Coventry and Wark hospital then? I went there for recall mammoth and was offered there or Solihull for surgery so opted for latter as I had found parking to be a nightmare at Coventry plus I live nearer to Solihull anyway! The Breadth Care nurses work at both Coventry and Solihull. Lovely. Yes it would be nice to meet up. I have another friend who I met recently dog walking who was diagnosed in same scanner, a month ahead of us but with grade 3/her2+, so she's just gone back in for node clearance and I know she'd probably like to join in too..no one knows what it's like until you have it yourself so it's nice to share. We are off to a Haven day in Birmingham on Wednesday. Have you heard about those?
Carol. Thanks for info re vits. There is an article in Sunday Times today which says research proves that Breast Cancer is the most sensitive to alcohol so I shall definitely address this and make changes but won't become teetotal as it would make me miserable! Also reassuring about your friends 'golf ball! I would like details from nutritionist. I shall add you as a friend on tab. x
well we may well be joining the july chemo thread together, holding hands and mopping tears
hopefully some laughs along the way x
Rollercoaster, thank you, words inspire us from someone who's made it off the rocky road and planning ahead, well done xx
Lovely to hear from someone who has gone through all that treatment and come out the other side - I'm HER2+ too (was surprised cos it was a grade 1 stage 1) so will also have herceptin and ER+ so I think I'm in for every drug they can throw at me! xx
