Sorry you're entombed Kip - hope those numbers shoot up quickly and you're back home kicking booty soon xxx
Have a little low level back ache this morning, but as I said to DH nothing worse than having slept awkwardly and I still feel pretty energetic so I'm off for a walk with the dog in a mo - gotta get a cuppa in first! I finished a crochet blanket yesterday so that will go to our caravan sometime over the next week and I've picked up another that's been languishing in the to be finished like for a while. Really enjoying this cooler bright weather.
Hair deffo much thinner, but I had so much anyway I've still got a good covering. Not stopping me looking for a hat pattern to knit up as the weather chills a little! No hairy toes here, or other hairy parts if you get what I mean ;-) Think my eyebrows are thinning, but had deliberately chose glasses with a heavier frame before this started to help disguise! Also have a friend's daughter lined up to help me draw them back in needs be!
Here's to good days ladies, chin, chin!

Hi Kip and everyone...
i just popped on here as I find it helpful to see how people are doing further on in their journeys. I have been following yours Kip, as I am on FEC T plus Herceptin, but no hormones involved. Had 2nd FEC today.
My advice from being in hospital for any of you is: get some good earplugs, they are a life saver! Or in their absence, put your own relaxing music on your phone or tablet, and put your ear phones in to shut out the noise. I was put next to the nursing station in isolation, so it was incredibly noisy all day and night.
I pray that your neutrophils score shoots up very soon, and that you will escape colditz!
No one knows until being in hospital how scarey and lonely it can feel, and it can seem like a prison. Bless you.
Big hugs 🤗

Well hi ladies, sorry ive been quiet but currently languishing in Casa NHS! Temperature was 38.2 yesterday rang hotline and got sent to A&E for few hours. Now isolated in a room until they come back up. Habing iv antibiotics but they are still 0.1. im so fed up, mh son got his gcse results todsy and i couldnt be there.. so shed some tears. He passed them all tho so immensely proud. Bloody bc takes all mh precious moments. Im hoping to see onc tomorrow to see if j can have injections to boost cells.
Im glad to hear you are all doing well, look after your mouths girls mine still hurts. My room is underneath a dementia ward so the screaming and shoutjng from one oftheir patients continues through out thd night, its so sad to hear a grown man screaming for his mother.
Take care ladies

I had a good night - went to bed at 11pm and woke about 7.30am, with a couple of wee breaks through the night - one of the drawbacks of copious amounts of water!
Steroids takens, just making breakfast now - porridge and plum compote. I've already unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher and tidied round the kitchen and walked the dog. Making the most of the cooler weather and feeling not too bad, which I'm sure won't last.
I think with the injections, it's luck of the draw with the approach the Oncology unit takes. So this time I've got three days of steroids, last one today, no Ondanstreton only Metoclopramide if I need them and the blasted injections. They've given me muscle ache over the last cycles and the Oncologist warned me that the T aches hit about the time you start taking the injections so I'm expecting a double whammy!
Hope your days are good ladies and side effects minimal.
