Morning lovely Jewels
Didn't get round to posting last night, family film night. OH had few DVDs for birthday recently, so he, me plus son and daughter sat down to watch "Casino Jack", Kevin Spacey film. After several interruptions, including ASDA online shop arriving, son and daughter having to check iphones several times, we watched (and I enjoyed some chocolate for the first time since chemo). Not a great film, story a bit compilcated for me, probably because I kept nodding off. However, I did wallow in the quality family time, I love it.
This happens every evening, nodding like the Churchill dog, then I always sleep really badly when I get to bed.
Faye - go for the weekend away, sounds like a good plan. Am sure it would do you good before the next round. Once I get the first cycle done, hopefully I can be sure of "good" times- probably week3 - and plan treats for those times.
Ann - good to hear from you and glad it was ok yesterday. So pleased your SEs are better this time. You up for riding this weekend? How's the foal doing?
Chelle - ok, bribes it is for the hospital staff to get my hands on some Emend. Doughnuts sound like a plan. (Martha - cider for the onc, you'll be top patient at your place!!)
York is lovely for shopping and posh afternoon tea. I think someone mentioned it as a possible venue for our post-chemo bash. It is kind of in the middle of the country - my daughter was in the National Children's orchestra when she was 11 and it was held near York for that reason.
Loving the frequent piccie changes - great fun and makes me lol. OH used to impromptu giggles and responds with "is that the forum again?" He has changed from " are you on that forum again?" to realising how much good it does me and admitting that no-one understands properly except someone who's wearing the same shoes i.e. our June Jewels.
Joan - so glad you feeling a bit better and had some positive news. Agree the consultants' bedside manner is not always good, bit devoid of emotion. After my DX , the surgeon (who has fab reputation, but not great with the chat) delivered the bad news, then left my lovely BCN to sort me out and mop up my tears. Hope you enjoyed telly evening with OH and have a good weekend.
Deedee - sorry you so sick, hope injection will have sorted it out.
Martha - you ditto with Chelle re the photo updates, they make me laugh. Also, loving Maxie's Hulk piccie.
Marion - hope you feeling better this morning. I think having a good cry does help, it just releases something - pressure, tension, bad thoughts, whatever. Hear from you later?
Esther - welcome. You can see we share, laugh, cry, rant, moan, everything on here. I couldn't manage without it.
Emma - would like to think I could do more exercise too. Managing a half hour walk every day, looking to increase length and walk faster. Also need some routine, whole days pass and couldn't say what I've done all day.
Morwenna - thanks for your encouragement, good to hear from someone further down the road than us.
Trish, Lainey and Linsey - go today girls, all the best.
Have good day everyone,
