What a lot to catch up on - sorry I will miss lots of people out but there has been so much going on...
Welcome to Flippantfox. I'm having my 2nd cycle of AC on Wednesday so we're only a day apart. Good luck next time and make sure you tell them you were sick last time.
NicJ - Emend - fingers crossed....
Chelle - poor you! Take care of yourself and enjoy the party in that big room x
Emma - love your hair, you look great.
Vicki - well done to your veins!! Hope you find it comfortable - if not, don't despair. After 3 weeks mine is just settling down and feeling relatively comfortable at last.
Cress - have a great time. Don't feel guilty, we all wish we could go!
Had a good weekend but very tired now - shouldn't be on day 20 but sleeping is still a problem. Went to work again as I still don't want to be at home with just my thoughts for company so no chance of a mid morning nap
. Quick trip to the hospital before work for pre-chemo bloods, but they couldn't get any blood from my picc line. Drugs can go in but they said it must be in the wrong position in my chect to be in the blood flow. So much for ease of access...
Sounds a bit weird but almost can't wait for next cycle on Wednesday. I feel like the first lot must be wearing off and I really want it to keep working on me and my lump...
Hair is shedding quite a bit now. Went to the park with the kids at the weekend and it was so windy I felt I had to put a cap on in case it blew off! Got the number from a friend of a mobile hairdresser to come round and shave it, but my husband has said he'll do it - I was touched as I agree Fiona that this must be hard for them. Have warned him that by the time this is over I'll be bald, scarred and menopausal but he hasn't run yet
Like the name LACE for our trip. It'll take me a bit longer to finish than many of you as I still have to have surgery after chemo, then rads - might be nearly this time next year.
Sleep well everyone xx
