Lovewine - how amazing that you've all met up. We have talked about it, hopefully arranging it for our 5-year mark. It would be nice to put faces to names after all this time. :-)

 

Thanks again for the good wishes.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Clare - playing steelpan in a Carnival sounds amazing! Good luck and let us know how you get on.

 

Sylvie, Julie & Karen - I definitely had a big glass of something last night accompanied by lots of chocolate. lol Strangely, though, the relief is only really setting in today. I was so geared up for bad news that the good news has taken me by surprise. :-)

 

Gill - you're so right, life is fragile and it's meant to be enjoyed. I intend to enjoy every sec. :-)

 

Hugs to all the July ladies.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Fantastic news Cath, so pleased for you, you must be so relieved. Have a huge glass of something tonight in celebration! I’m going to have to google the other news, if it shows an increased risk recurrence it’s not good but it is good that it’s been picked up. Keep us posted won’t you.

Have a wonderful weekend. Xx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Feeling happy for you now.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Ladies,

 

I'm not long back from the hospital where I got the all clear - the biopsy wasn't cancerous. Whoo hoo! I will have to go back because seemingly I have atypical lobular hyperplasia, which I think just means I'm at a very high risk for reoccurrence. They want to chat to my original consultant and see what he wants to do - both now and for the future. 

 

Such a relief!

 

Thanks so much for all the positive thoughts and prayers, ladies. They were very much appreciated. It was nice to know I wasn’t alone while I was waiting.

 

Hugs to all the July ladies

And yes, it was great to hear from Gill that calcifications are quite common.  Trying to put it out of my mind now. Will let you all know what happens on Thursday.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Clare - thanks for the positive vibes and finger crossing. 

 

Karen - I intend to fill my weekend with lovely things

 

Julie - Thanks for the positive vibes and the big, squishy hug.

 

Silvie - lol on the hoovering, but keep those fingers (legs...eye crossed for me.)

 

Gill - thanks for letting me know that calcifications aren't always serious. I've been afraid to google because as we all know a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. 

 

Ladies, I'm so very touched by all your posts. I don't want to tell anyone here about this, but I needed to share my worries with someone and you've all be great. I really appreciate the support while I wait.

 

Big hugs

 

Cath

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Thank you for keeping us all updated Cath. It’s sounds rather trite to advise you to stay positive, especially after what you’ve been through already. Try and keep yourself as busy as possible, like you said you can’t change anything so worrying Wont help. I can promise you we’ll all be worrying for you! I have everything crossed for you (which made hoovering really difficult!). Please let us know how you get on next Thursday in your own time.

We’re with you all the way. 😘😘 xxx

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Sending you a big, squishy hug to keep you going,

Love, Julie

My thoughts and prayers are with you Cath. It could still turn out to be ok couldn’t it?, and in the worst case it will have been caught very early.
Fill your weekend with lovely things, fingers crossed everything will be ok.

Sorry Cath, only got back yesterday and just picked up the latest thread. I’ve got everything crossed for you and hope you get the results quickly. As others have said hopefully it’s a blurred image. Big hugs. Xxx

Thanks, Sylvie 

 

Not long back from my appointment and it wasn't a blurred image. :-( They did another mammogram and found some spots - calcification- they then did an ultrasound, hoping I could have an ordinary biopsy as the vac biopsy is quite hard for me with my AS. But I ended up having to have the vac biopsy - wasn't as bad as I thought - then another mammogram to check the marker they put it.

 

Won't get results till next week. I have an appointment for Thurs so please keep all prayers and positive thoughts going.

 

I'm going to try and put it out of my mind until then - no sense worrying about something I've no control over.

 

Hugs to all the July ladies

Sorry Cath, I phrased my reply badly when I said it’s still a worry, what I meant was due to our previous experiences it’s only natural to worry even though there are lots of reasons you have been called back.
There’s a reason you are a writer and I’m not!!
Take care xxx

Karen, no apology necessary, I know exactly what you mean. It's because of our previous experience that I'm on edge, and also why I haven't told anyone except hubs - and only because he's driving me to the appointment. :-)

 

I appreciate the good wishes.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Congrats on your half marathon time, Clare.

 

I went for my mammogram last Thursday and received a phone call this morning telling me I need to go back.

Booked in for Friday. Hoping they're just erring on the side of caution, but all positive thoughts would be gratefully received. :-(

 

Hugs to all the July ladies

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Ladies
Sorry not been on here for ages, possibly a good sign that life is getting back to normal? Sounds like everyone is doing well, hopefully all is good with Wendy too and she is too busy to check in!
Not had my mammogram yet that is due in a couple of weeks and then I have oncology in August.
Been off work with Martin for the last week, loving the hot weather and watching the football. Also now the kids are older and no one needs picking up from school, we have sneaked in a couple of pub lunches whilst we should be decorating 😊.
Love to all, Karen x

The book reading actually went quite well. (Didn't end up in floods of tears, so that's a plus. lol)

 

Your garden sounds so restful - I love jasmine.

 

Weather is still gorgeous here. It's lovely to wake up to the sunshine every morning. Long may it continue.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

How lovely to hear from so many July Ladies. :-)

 

Sylvie - lol on the boob letters. Bet you're excited about your Canada trip. Don't stress it. Everything that needs to be done will be done and if not... so what. All you need is your passport and money. (Oh, and your partner, better not forget him. lol)

 

Clare - thanks for the explanation re your 'last' appt. I'm doing self-assessment so I haven't had any hospital appointments except for my mammogram, which I'm still waiting to get for this year.

 

Sounds like you're enjoying retirement. Go you!

 

Gill - I LOVE swimming, mostly in the pool but you can't beat the beach, especially in this weather. Enjoy.

 

Life in N. Ireland is sunny at the moment. We had a long car trip yesterday to check out houses for our son's return to college in Sept - 5 hours in total - and it hit 32 degrees in the car!!!

 

Today I plan to stay in the shade. lol

 

Have fun at your gin festival.

Re: Anyone due to start their chemo July 2014

Hi Cath, Gill and Sylvie Eric. Good to hear. Sylvie holiday sounds great. Yes retirement is the key to get the time to do exactly what you like without stress. Thought I would miss work but too busy at the moment.

Cath it think it might be my last appt because I thought one get seen for 5 years then signed off. Maybe I shall get one more appt as not exactly 5 yrs yet. Diagnosed 31st Dec 2013. We shall see. I wouldn't mind being signed off as I hate hanging around hospitals. So depressing. Must be because I spend all my working years in them lol.

Well girls enjoy the lovely weather.

Love to all
Clare
