Hello I have just seen this thread. I am in Liverpool. I am newly diagnosed and will have my surgery on 17th June. I would be interested to join this group. When and where do you meet? x
Hi, Im Tracy 40 years old and just been diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer.. i have no idea about the spread... and no idea what to expect...i am mum to louis 11 months old, sadly i will be in hospital having a lumpectomy on his first birtday... mark aged 21 and two beautiful step sons dan 22 and matt 12...
im from liverpool too, whiston to be exact, and would love to meet up in the future, for support and advice...saturday 13 june is when we hope to go for a family meal for my sons 1st birthday so i wont be able to make that date...
my emotions are all over the place, i dont really know what to expect so any advice would be greatly appreciated... my sress levels are so high...im currently going through a divorce and trying to find a new place to rent .....im trying so hard to be positive but as my mum died of bowel cancer when she was 49, me just 16, my emotions are up and down...
love to hear from anyone interested in chatting to me x
Sorry I completly mucked up the dates for the last meet by saying I could meet on 30th. As it happened I was mega busy and didn't come on here until tonight (1st).
I can make the 13th June, but can Liverbird email me to remind me as pick up emails daily but only come on here occasionally now.
Hope all are as well as could be expected.
I am suggesting the 13th JUNE for a meet up. Would be lovely if we could get together.
Have posted on the chit chat thread and re-directed folk here.
Julie, fingers crossed for the scan- I've never heard of that type of scan, hope you are ok.
Jan, hmmm... that was pretty bad timing of theirs to tell you about your scan. Really glad the hols were great anyway.
Me? Yep, scan coming up Tues. Doing my usual pre-scan routine of imagining all sorts! Hopefully, I can stay on same therapy. Also, have applied for early retirement and have had an offer accepted on a place close to my family and roots. Still wish I could put my onc in my pocket and take her with me.. that is almost the scariest bit for me as she got me from a really bad place to still being here 21 months on!
I'm trying to catch up here.. is there a meet on the 30th? Will check this thread again soon.
Take care xxx
Lovely to hear from you. Am glad your holiday was good and know what you mean about coming back to earth with a bump!!
Yes we go on Saturday, all being well. Have a muga heart scan on Thursday and am a bit concerned.
Hope to see you soon,
I agree, I think the Liverpool thread should be in latest posts, I have to remember to "do" chit chat as I don`t normally go there.
Hope you are keeping well , when are you going on holiday?
We have just got back from Portugal and had a great time. My b.c. nurse rang me as we were leaving Faro airport to arrange scans ...how about that for bringing you right back down to earth!!
Anne , good luck with the scans next week, have you made any decisions yet about relocation?
Blimey I dont even look there now!!! Thanks
Ooops.Chit chat does not show up under latest posts.A few people, myself included, will have totally missed this.
I was going to post on Meet-ups but saw that it was in the Secondary section!!
Anyway it is about time that we organised the next meet up in Liverpool (primaries and secondaries).
At the last meet, we mentioned May. Well we are half way through, so I suspect it will be June.
The Adelphi was nice. Then again so is the Blue Coat cafe (in the courtyard garden) as I believe it is open again! Any other ideas??
Allicat, wondering how you are doing?
