Dear Lovely Ladies, Maria, Jojo, Jo, Zena, Sparky, Max, Jules, Swampy, Tessa and Sallyann.. Hope I have not missed anyone. I am sorry I have not been online past couple of days. I have been trying to settle in with my family prior to the start of my chemo tomorrow. I now have mobile broadband until I can arrange something more permanent here at my parents home in Cardiff. I live in the South East (Sussex) but I am originally from Cardiff and left in my early 20's to work for British Airways at Heathrow Airport, as a secretary. In 1979 I started flying as cabin crew with Britannia Airways and I was there for 15 years. Most of my working life was in the aviation industry and I "retired" in September 2016 as an aviation recruitment manager. Following my divorce in May 2016 I decided to take 3 months off and then travel to Australia to see my daughter and move back home to Wales. I have worked for over 40 years so I thought a 3 month holiday was not a lot to ask for.... Well that thought was rudely interrupted by my diagosis on 24 November 2016. A date that will never be forgotten. I guess not many people will forgot the date and the face of person who gave them the news...... Got my wig and had my hair cut short today. Also had a light chicken broth diet today hopefully it will help with the nausea and I plan to eat the same tomorrow. So I am ready for chemo tomorrow I guess. Reading through the posts I see I have forgotten to get some Aloe Vera Juice! Maria, I hope you are coping well and I will be thinking of your tomorrow. If my memory serves me correctly you start your chemo tomorrow too, Jo, how are you doing after your first Chemo session Zena, my cabin crew partner! Hope you are doing ok and nausea is getting better. Julie: I appear to be the only one that has not been to Ironbridge. Hope you are feeling better... Tessa, Welcome, hope you are feeling better. Jojo, hope you are doing good. I don't have a problem with FB provided it is private group.... If I have missed anyone I apologise in advance. I will try to keep up todate with you all now. Question?? has anyone driven on thier own? Good luck to anyone starting chemo this week who I have missed. Ann xx.
