Chocolates - please send lots of positive vibes from me too. Helen has been through so much its just not fair but I will be thinking of her this Easter weekend and hoping that she soon is on the mend,xx
So sorry to hear about poor Helen.. She is very strong and I'm sure if they get this infection under control she will be much better. Please give her my love chocolates and loads of positive vibes. Lots of Sheila. Xxx
Yahoo Sheila! Now rest up and let your daughter spoil you for a bit!!
Helen, I can't believe they missed your breakfast. I'm glad your temperature is down and I hope you escape soon!
Thinking of you Bev!
Well done Sheila! Glad you've completed the course and hoping the SE's are not too bad. I know a few women who've had WBR and they felt the fatigue was the worst, so listen to your body and rest.
Thanks for update Chocolates. Poor helen! Please add my love to the list to be passed on, hopefully she will feel the love and support from here and it will give her an added strength.
Faraway, I'm sorry you are feeling low but can understand but there are still treatments out there for you and there are new drugs being developed and trialled sotry to hold on to that
Misty dull day here today. Hope all my friends here are having a reasonable day and you all have a good Easter with at least some chocolate! xx
Thanks so much chocolates. Am now home and finished with wbr. Have been wobbly but I am putting that down to calcium levels now. think we will see how I am now I am back on treatment for this.
Poor Helen! I hope they sort her out quickly. Let us know how she is getting on later won't you?
I hope you have a really nice Easter chocolates. I won't be doing much but my daughter is coming round. She only lives round the corner and she is a massive support.
Well I think another dose is called for before teatime. Take care.
Lots of love. Sheila. Xxx
Jjust a quick post a I am going for last wbr today!! I have been okay except for the tiredness. However my calcium is rising and my liver enzymes are slightly higher so onc bringing scan forward and will probably be going onto eribulin. Will have bloods done next week.
Chocolates, thanks for passing on the news about Helen. Would you pass on my love and hugsxxx
Bev, I'm sorry you had such a bad time this week. I will be finished with my radiotherapy today and apart from bad fatigue I have been okay. You are only on tables for a few minutes.
Belinda, I hope the blood transfusion helps to make you feel much better and you have a lovely Easter.
Natalie, I hope you have managed to get over your bad day and and that your scan results are good. Will have to go as it takes me so long to get ready.
I'm sorry if I have missed any one but I wish you all a lovely Easter and that you all have a trouble free time.
Lots off love.Sheila. xxxx
Janette, so with you on that one. I find that is the worst part of this ***** disease. My daughter is same age and although we have been lucky enough to see our children grow into beautiful people the tears never stopwhen we think of what we could miss....overwhelms me every time i look at her. It never leaves you does it? x
Helen feeling so bad for you. Hope they get to the bottom of this quickly!! Don't let them wave you off, you push for answers and treatment. FF
So sorry to hear poor Helen is back in hospital! I only hope they treat her better this time (ie no Poogate!!!) and someone with some clout comes to see her, seeing as her Basil Fawlty of an Onc is on hols again! Good luck to everyone else (sorry to hear about poor Bev's experience, too). Chocolate here I come this weekend. Chocolate for breakfast on Sunday, definitely! Hugs. Barton.x
No, No, No you are NOT a nuisance, just someone in a very vulnerable place. I am now going to get my polish out to make sure my angry eyes are A1.
Lovely ladies can I suggest that we allow ourselves this bank holiday off from our troubles, I know this is really hard, but I am really going to try enjoy family time and chocolate and not alow ****** to spoil it. Hoping the Easter bunny has remembered me (he had better or there will be trouble ).
Hugs and chocolate to you all
Helen, so glad to hear you are feeling a little better about things..its unbelievable the problems you have had. You are a very special lady. Take care.x
Sianie, please dont feel guilty for ranting on here and you never need to apologise. I know exactly how your mum feels and i have a pretty good idea of how you feel as i too have a beautiful caring daughter and it truly breaks my heart to know what i am putting her through. Everyone tells me i shouldnt feel guilty..i didnt ask for this...but you cant help it. I'm sure all your mum wants to do is crawl into a hole and not be a worry to anyone..thats certainyl how i feel a lot of the time. I'm sure she will rally soon...i know its very hard on you but all you can do is just keep loving her and coaxing her. Believe me, however bad things get she has a daughter who she loves very much and of whom she is very proud!! People who have no experience of this disease have no idea of the devastting effect it has on the whole family.
Sending love and hugs to everyone.x
Belinda, I hope the chemo doesn't knock it down on Friday. You need a little break. I'm not liking my chemo. Every time on my second dose of the cycle my white count is down, so I have to go back the next day for the neulasta. Just tired of infusions and injections. Sure miss just swallowing xeloda. I wish they had more oral chemos.
