Re: July 2017

Hi Michelle, hi all! Yes it's so beautiful out of doors, it lifts the spirits. My bloods were playing up again, but bounced back in the nick of time to get yesterday's chemo done, thank goodness. On condition that I go in on Monday for a blood transfusion! Don't really mind as it will make me feel better, but it's a very boring long day!

Had a lovely time in Devon despite the foul weather last weekend! It's always fun to be in the camper van, and we had a great time with the family. Matilda is a four-year old force of nature!
Hope you are all ok and enjoying the autumn colours. xx

Hi Carole.
Hopefully you’ll find some relief with the orthotics. You’re absolutely right though, you have to keep moving regardless of the pain. 😳
😍😍😍 absolutely loving this pic. What I’d give to be sitting enjoying a cuppa there right now. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Ooo Michelle. That sounds awful. Fingers crossed for today. Can they give you something for the pain beforehand? At least these scans ets should show exactly what’s going on and then hopefully they’ll be able to mange things better for you.
Twitter is great because people are being active trying to achieve better outcomes.
This thread is my little sanctuary though. I can give advice and support to others on other forums but when I need it myself I always come here.
Thanks ladies. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Good luck with the tests Mishy, it sounds horrible 😢but get it over with. 

 

I saw the podiatrist yesterday and he confirmed it is plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis because my ankles don’t flex much which is a side effect of the Letrozole. Having orthotics made and suggested I do not walk if it’s too painful.  Hmm, well It’s always painful and I need to walk to keep my joints moving and for bone strength. It can’t repair if I keep walking so all a bit of a balancing act.

Re: July 2017

Good to hear from you Carole.
Pleased you had a lovely holiday. I’ve never been to Windsor or ST Ives. I’d like to visit both. I was just thinking the other day how little of our own country I’ve seen.
Great you got to meet up with some of your bc friends. 😀
I hope the podiatrist managed to help you? My right foot is almost better now. However, I woke up the other morning and my wrist joint was swollen. It had gone down by teatime. Very random. 🙄
Xxx
P.s. I’ve already posted this once but it isn’t showing so ignore me if I repeat myself.

Re: July 2017

Hi ladies

Angela I’m pleased your treatment is going smoothly. Tatyana have a great time in Devon. Weather is beautiful today but don’t know if it will last.
I have had a great time last week. We went to Windsor, Bath and finally on to St Ives for a few days. Met with pink ladies last Tuesday in Bath and we chatted for ages. So good to see them x
I’m off to the podiatrist this afternoon to see about my painful feet. 😩

Re: July 2017

Hi tatyana.
Great that your bloods are behaving themselves. Yes, isn’t it crazy some of the things that make us happy now. 😂 I cheered in the chemo ward when the pharmacist turned up with my meds. I’d waited nearly two hours for him. Never thought I’d be excited to receive that sort of delivery.
I’m not a big red meat eater either. We’re having chilli tomorrow though. I like mine topped with a fried egg. Strange but delicious.
I hope yous have a lovey trip away. I can just imagine the photos. 😍 they’re just soooo lovely at that age. I’m picking miles up from school today. He’s only four. Had to hold back the tears the first time I saw him in his uniform. 😢

Re: July 2017

Hi Angela, yes, you guys are great at doing the blood dance, I got my chemo on Friday. That's two in a row!! Funny how chuffed you can feel, just because you're well enough to get a nice dose of poison! My haemoglobin is a bit low so I'm trying to cram in lots of iron rich foods. Don't really like red meat, but did make a lovely chili con carne last night if I do say so myself.
All systems go for our Devon trip, we're off on Thursday for a long weekend, fingers crossed. Granddaughter spent all day at nursery yesterday dressed as a sheep. As you do. Can't wait to see her!

Re: July 2017

Morning ladies.
How is everyone? Tatyana I hope your bloods were okay? Did you manage to get to Devon to see your granddaughter?
Our little ones have had nasty coughs so I had to stay away from them at the weekend. 🙁 with my low neuts it’s just too risky.
Michelle have you had your scans yet? How did they go?
Hoping everyone else is well. Xxx

Re: July 2017

Hi ladies! Carole, how lovely to meet up with the other ladies. Enjoy the rest of your break.

Happy birthday to Ella -- I can't believe a year has gone by! Michelle, I hope you are having a lovely day with your lovely granddaughter.

Angela, good luck with your scan but it's too soon to worry about it yet!! A Halloween weekend sounds like a great idea. As the weather gets cooler, those hot flushes will be a blessing. Ha ha. Not! Meanwhile I'm feeling the cold, I've never minded it but nowadays I'm really nesh!

We're hoping to get down to Devon the weekend after next to see our granddaughter, who will soon be four. We're planning to take the campervan. So fingers crossed for the weather and also for my bloods, because I don't want this Friday's chemo to be delayed!
Love to all of you, Missa,Shi and the gang, good luck with your treatments and don't forget to have fun.xxx

Re: July 2017

Morning Michelle. Can’t believe it’s Ella’s birthday already. 😳 hope yous have a lovely day. 🎉🎂
We should all be able to go away whenever we want I think. Hubby would disagree. 😂 I love seahouses. We’re thinking of popping up for Halloween weekend. The caravan site always have a good fancy dress party and our miles wants to visit bamburgh castle again. Also our year passes into Alnwick castle are still valid so it’s a shame not to make the most of them.
We should definitely meet for a coffee some time.
I love cooking as well. Keeps me away from shopping. 😂
Let us know how your scans go. My first ct since starting this new regime is in about 4 weeks. 😳

Missa how are you? I’ve everything crossed that your treatment is working.

Tatyana, Carole, Kimi, shi, I hoping you’re all good and enjoying this crisp weather. Im a sun worshipper but have to say this year the cold is a bit of a relief with these hot flushes. I’d say I have about 30 per day. 😳😳😳
