Sam hope you manage to do something nice with OH even for a weekend away for some time together.
Daisymegan not on FB either as far as am aware so hope she is ok
Thanks for asking Roller - Sergio is full of a cold and wheezing like mad just had to give him the puffer thing to help him breathe. GOnna ask Jose to take him back to a and e tomorrow as my GP is useless.
Hope you ok JUlie after your dunking
Deb, we have the full list on facebook. If you go onto the files and look at the main list that Alix did on 29th August, everyone is on there with regimes and dates xxx
Evening all, I just wanted to say good luck to any at the bar tomorrow and any with appointments. I have to admit my head is shedded and not sure when everyone is up now at the bar.
Thinking of you all and sending hugs, Debs x x x
Sam, get something booked for the 2 of you and have some time away this week, it doesnt matter where you go.
I have onc appointment tomorrow too, before next weeks dunking. I am just praying I am as lucky on the 2nd as I was on the first one.
Hope you have a better day tomorrow Rollercoaster
Roller coaster, onc appointment went ok. As i had read up on everything there were no surprizes. The registrar was fine, course I had to get the boobs out again- I don't think I need an excuse now!! I am going back a week on Friday for my pre chemo visit then start the following Friday. Think they would have done pre visit earlier but I told them i was going away!!
I have been and joined the library today to try and get some books on journalling but they only had scrapbooking which is similar. I picke dup scarpbooking and card making books and How i said Bah to Cancer. The author is an Edward De Bono trainer so I thought it might have some tips in it for when I am havinga crisis. It does have some good stuff in it. Already nearly half way through.
Deb would still love to get away but as I have been almost silent for two days in the house not sure OH wants to take me anywhere. He needs to hurray otherwise I am going to book somewhere just for me!!
Has anyone heard from Pennycrow today? She has had a rough time but always checks in with us every day so I am a bit worried xx
Good luck to anyone up today.
Roller the dixies are you, me, Lols, and Claire 1979 cant remember the fifth from top of head.
Been in work today and everyone said ooh dont you look well. I know they mean well but oyu get sick of it after a bit.
Ju hope you are feeeling a bit better today
Sergio ahs had his bloods done again just waiting for results again now
Sorry to hear about your fainting fit Rollercoaster. Hope you are well today.
I hope anyone up for a dunking today gets it done and are ok. Hope all other recent dunkers SEs are minimal. I seem to have lost where everyone is and at what stage so please ignore my ignorance when not mentioning many names.
Gilly is a proper skinhead girl. I have told OH and his mates (all bald) I will have a photo taken with them when I reach that stage. They have informed be only the most beautiful are ever allowed to be bald so girls we are beautiful(stop shaking your head Ju,).
Breezy enjoy your day out with your little soldier. My big soldier has gone on away for a few days with his gfriend to Spain. I do miss doing things with little people, that;'s one of the reasons I will miss school so much.
Georgina I am in the middle of you and Jo43, in Northants.
Coco how are you doing now?
Ju I know our hospital will do it on the day especially if people have been borderline in previous days. Worth asking for sure.
Still a grumpy bum here and OH very quiet- I feel like screaming I can't bloody help it, do you think I want to feel like this!!!! Grrrrrrr. However Ju did make me smile this morning, eh Ju 😉
Morning ladies, nice and sunny here in Yorkshire.
Good luck to all the maisies at the bar today sending big hugs. Well I'm not doing too bad cycle 2 day 7, bit achey and got the furry mouth thing going on again but not sick thank god. I hope all your se's are minimal and doable too girls. Ju I feel for you hun and I will be in bits too when my time comes to get rid of my hair, i just can't see me looking normal with no hair on. The maisies are a real inspiration though with how they have all dealt with it and put pickies on facebook and they all look really good. I know its only my opinion but before all this when I saw anyone who had their head shaved when I was out my first thought was how strong and brave they were. Not because they had their head shaved and were walking about, but because I couldn't begin to think of what they were having to go through and the strength they needed! Well here we are girls and that is us now so heads up, walk tall because I'm sure there will be others that will think the same as I did, so its not sympathy they feel but a sense awe! Besides that we will all get to have new hairstyles when it grows back, love and hugs to all x x x
Ju, I did mine to half an inch last night and it was really uncomfortable in bed too, so I took mine to quarter of an inch this morning and it is definitely better xx
I'm stepping up today at 1:30pm - got to take anti sickness one hour before, along with lots of water/juice.
Anticipation of SEs are now getting to me now................ was alright at 7am this morning.
Good luck to all at the bar today, and hope se's minimal.
Roller - hope you feeling better, and the runs and nausea have run away. Fainting could have been due to loss of fluids. I started a few days after my 1st chemo, but loperamide soon kicked in and cured it. Never heard of the saying 'shake my tush'. Must be a local saying in your area?
Lols, know exactly how you feel. Even with a no.1haircut, my head was so irritating and painful. I eventually got the razor out and got rid of it all. Yes, easy maintenance, and I still reach for the hair brush. By the time my hair does start growing again, I'll have got out of the habit and then forget to brush it! If you go out without wig - don't forget to put sun screen on your head.
Jackie, have a lovely time at your holiday cottage. Hope you enjoy your day out to Hadrian's wall. Last time I was there was over 40 years ago when on a trip from school.
Still feeling quite good after my 2nd dunking yesterday. Heavy head, but no headache thank goodness, and shattered. I was wide awake watching tv at 3.30 a.m. Nurse coming this afternoon to give me my level boosting injection. I should be going to the hospital for my 3month endometrial cancer checkup, but have postponed that as don't feel up to going.
Spikey, not good when chemo delayed as we like to get it all over and done with. Hopefully, you will have no further delays. Enjoy your lunch trip and chin wag with Gilly.
Christy, hope appointments go well today. Yes, hopefully your levels will be ok with all the green veg you are eating.
Beautiful day here. Hope those of you that are feeling ok can make the most of the sun x
Morning Maisies from my lovely holiday cottage! Roller that doesn't sound good! Maybe you were dehydrated from all the diarrhoea? I think I would ring your helpline as you fainted, they will want to know. Hope you're feeling better now and try to keep your fluids up, difficult when you're nauseous I know. Good luck to all dunkees today, next week doesn't seem very far away, I would never have thought 3 weeks would go so quickly each time! Off to Hadrians wall today so I'd best shake a leg! Xx
Ju I am shaved to a number 3 and have left a little fringe, so I look like a 1980's skinhead. It is weird and I am not as grey as I thought I was. You will get used to it hunni. Loads of us have put pictures on the facebook page of our heads shaved, I wish you could see them too, it would make you feel better, honest. Big hugs xxx
Lols , a traumatic experience, but in time, you do get used to seeing yourself in the mirror. I had to get the razor out again this morning. Well done, give yourself a pat on the back for doing that. The bits of hair that had not fallen out, had grown since Saturday to a stubble (felt horrible when I touched my head), so razored it all off again. Walked bravely throughout the hospital with bald head......no strange looks, which was great.
Genevere, hope you and other dunkees from today do ok, and very little se's materialise. I am amazed that so far I'm not too bad. Last time I had very bad migraine and vomiting come midnight, so if that does not happen this evening, I shall be over the moon. Fortunately, I now live in a flat, so no stairs to climb come bedtime.
Sam, sorry you not able to get to Greece. Hope you can perhaps manage to get a lovely break somewhere in the UK.
Well, I'm off to slob on the sofa watching tv (usually fall asleep when I do this!), so will say goodnight, and hope you all have a reasonable nights sleep x
Hope you're all as wel las you can hope. Back from the bar, feeling weird and heavy, just waiting for full blast to hit me.
Have had 2 fab free complementary therapies at Force Centre at RD&E in Exteter. You can take someone with you, so took my daughter who also had treatment free! 4 more freebies to come, so will take other daughter next time. It's tough for family, they need de-stressing too.
Christymay - you're bound to be tearful, know how you feel and thinking of you
Fab news Rollercoaster - you deserve it after everything
Sam - so so sorry about Greece
Me too Lucy, all the best and to others up today and this week
Leading parallel lives with the hair Lols - coming out all over laptop!
My daughter was at Lancaster uni and we walked the Pendle Witch trail. Beautifu,l but horrible to think about the fate of the women who walked it.
Thinking of you all Maisies, goodnight because if I don't go now my legs won't get me upstairs xx
Glad to hear you are feeling ok Lucy long may it continue.
I hope the rest of the maisies are doing ok with minimal side effects, sending big hugs to all x x x
Christymay I ahd 2 WLe's and then another op to remove a haematoma.
Rollercoaster- I go to crazt hats on Thursday mornings on the finedon road industrial estate in Wboro. You can have complimentary therapies there for a donation. We always have a good chat over coffee. It's 10am until 1pm.
Fingers crossed all will be ok Lucy x
glad to hear it went ahead. With the lower dose of steroids you should nt get the jittery feeling fingers crosssed
Just got back from hospital. Levels all good, so chemo went ahead. Onc said only to take steroids for one day (in addition to iv dose this afternoon) and see if that does make a difference. He also said to keep taking paracetamol to keep on top of migraine............assuming one starts of course So now in my pj's waiting for the time bomb of se's to go off..............fingers crossed they won't.
Roller, I go to the day therapy at the local hospice, and we can have whichever complementary therapy we want. They are wonderful.........I personally love the reflexology
Hope all of todays other dunkees have got home safe and sound, and that any se's don't materialise x
