Re: What made me happy today

Reading about what ChoccieMuffin's fab daughter is doing ... not only raising money for Cancer Research but spreading the word among her school friends - brill. You must be SO proud of her CM!

Re: What made me happy today

My onc has referred me to a plastic surgeon who will remove my rads tattoos by laser on the nhs. So excited, fed up of looking at 4 blue smudges that everyone sees in the summer.

Re: What made me happy today

It was yesterday, but....

The young doctor who was doing my echocardiogram (ultrasound) commented that I was thin, which made his job easier. He was only looking at my breastbone and ribs, unfortunately, but it was so nice to be called thin for the first time in 40 or so years!

Re: What made me happy today

Haha, Lif. Was on again very briefly today chatting to the afternoon show presenter about how awful it is to be waiting for results. Again. I should keep my gob shut now - she said "and you must let us know your results". Not sure I will...

It's also leaked out places I hadn't intended, my niece saw it on Eleanor's facebook. Ooops! So I now have to phone her mum this evening. Better get on with that then, eh.

Re: What made me happy today

I'm absolutely astounded. My girlie phoned another local radio station here in Guildford. We had a chat with the DJ who I've chatted to over the years, and he broadcast about "Ellie's Hair-raiser" on air. And some complete stranger donated £200! Speechless.

The generosity of strangers is a joy to witness and leaves me feeling very small.

So far she's raised £1383.27, and has raised her target to £2000. I reckon she's going to completely smash that as she's doing a cake sale on Monday (she printed off posters to stick around the school) and is even considering taking her little assembly talk to other schools in the area to increase awareness. Not quite sure what else she might be planning.

Re: What made me happy today

Coming back on to post again after considerable time out of action with broken arm and damaged hand. (plasters on both!)
So very very wonderful to be welcomed back so positively...
Feeling so very much better for it as the past month has been very lonely!!!

The people here are so very supportive and wonderful examples of a great society!

Re: What made me happy today

So many messages of support even from the strangest directions, since I publicly "outed" myself and the cancer. I haven't had a single negative comment or response from people who now know (well not that I've noticed but I can be a bit "fick" that way!) and I'm gobsmacked by the kindness people have shown. Could it be because I'm not actually sick yet? Dunno, but it's very heartening.

OMG! I've just looked and so many people have donated, including so many of you lovely ladies, and lots of my swimming friends. I'm now sitting here dripping tears on my keyboard, I feel completely humbled. (Must mop up, runny mascara's not a good look.)

Re: What made me happy today

What has made me happy is seeing how much Ellie has raised.. just today, and knowing what a massive smile that will put on such a fab child's face.. CM, if I were her mum I'd be blubbing with pride!!

Re: What made me happy today

I really am SO proud of her. I booked her hair appointment today when I finished having mine chopped. She's prepared a school assembly that she's doing for all the different year groups at her school next week, and she's going to print off some little leaflets that she and her sister are giving to all their teachers, so she's really going at this in a big way. I suppose it's her way of doing something that matters.

What made me happy today (apart from my lovely children), is that I now have a lovely haircut, which I'll probably hang onto for several weeks. (I know, I should have done it ages ago, but I was still sad about it because of WHY I had it cut off.)

Re: What made me happy today

CM, reading what your daughter has written on her Just Giving site is wonderful!

What's also made me happy today is the arrival of my parents to spoil me for a few days!

Re: What made me happy today

What made me happy - well proud, more like - is this thing that my lovely daughter has done. Brings a tear to my eye, and has also made it easier for me to "come out" to various people I deal with but am not extremely close to, without having to tell people in my own words. And her hair is really thick and luxurious so it is a pretty big thing for her to cut it all off.

Re: What made me happy today

...Annie 22 - my cupboards need cleaning but afraid that during the sleepless hrs last night didn't give them a thought! So happy I have a friend who enjoys housework and has regularly changed beds when my arm wasn't up to it.

What really made me happy today was seeing eldest off to Cuba this morning. Barbara

Re: What made me happy today

sad to say....that I feel a real sense of achievement in that my post-FEC (3/6) non-sleep last night meant that my kitchen cupboards are emptied of all the out of date packets and tins. Not that I can taste anything that is left in the cupboards - but hey...small victories!!

Re: What made me happy today

I completely relate to that, MG. (And I like the fact that you're initials are a classic sporty car. Always wanted an MG when I was a kid...)

From first diagnosis I've found it really difficult to think about anything else for more than a few minutes without BC intruding, so it was a real relief to be distracted for several hours, and with such an enjoyable day too. I had been umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether I should go, but so glad I did.

Re: What made me happy today

WWMHT was also WMMKT, as I'm feeling a bit pooped.

I had a whole day of doing stuff that I did before this bloody disease stuck its nose into my life and thoroughly enjoyed it, and was even able to forget about it for a while, until boob started hurting because of repeated bending over to pick something up off the floor. But co-codamol has had another outing, and it was most definitely worth it as I had a blast.

Re: What made me happy today

Back on the subject of friends!

This morning I've had some beautiful flowers delivered completely unexpectedly from an old school friend. I haven't seen her for 25 years and I found her through Facebook a couple of weeks before my DX in December.

What a lovely thing for her to do!

Re: What made me happy today

It was yesterday, but my adult son who doesn't normally phone home often, phoned to see how I was getting on and when he would need to be 'on call' this weekend following FEC2 because the OH is going up to Manchester most of today (Sat) and won't be home till late.

And hey! I'm 1/3 through chemo now.

I love this thread. XXX
What made me happy today was finally waking up knowing that we had a plan of action for my OH who dx prostrate cancer 2 days before Christmas and for the 1st time in 7 weeks we can relax. I have my 2 year assessment next tuesday so all being well its celebrations all round. XXX 🙂

Re: What made me happy today

Well done chocciemuffin - we'd better get you one of those chairs with your name on the back!

Good on you for making people aware. My DX has seriously shaken up a lot of my friends who are mostly under 50 and made them really think about their own health.

And no, I haven't come down off the ceiling yet but the weight of the chocolate I'm going to eat when DH gets home later (to make up for the alcohol he'll have but I can't) might just pull me down!

Re: What made me happy today

One of these days I'll learn NOT to act on the spur of the moment! I just sent an email this morning, took 30 seconds, and it all happened from then. Silly me! 8-D

Should be some time on Monday morning, though I don't know if it's going out "live" or whether they record it and edit things. (I'd better make sure I don't swear if it's not a recorded thing...)
