Hello lovely ladies 😘
Just wanted to let you know, I’ve been given the green light for tomorrow’s last 👍 fec
anecdote: my 8yrs old forgot to bring her homework last friday. I asked: ‚Why?’ , she said: ‚ Oh, chemo brain!’ 😂😂😂😂

prosecco straight into the picc isnt an option is it???
glad it's not just me, I've tried different squashes - strong, weak.... nothing hits the spot at all.
next stop is tonic water or diet lemonade I think?
Can I also ask any T ladies how often they are redoing nail varnish? and what you have found when you take your varnish off??

Afternoon eveyone from a dull grey north London.
Day 11 for me and starting to feel normal(ish), still have a horrible mouth where everything tastes and feels like sludge - or what I imagine sludge to be!! Nails not so tender, which is good. Eyelashes are on their way out and eyebrows have thinned.
Good luck Harryfiddler for tomorrow, remember to drink loads to flush everything through 👍
Lesley, I hope you managed some rest - remember to eat little & often and drink plenty. Did your carpet man offer you a discount? 😉
Otter, take care of yourself

Come on Otter - you can admit it to us ..... you've been on the Gin!!
Take care of yourself, I know bruising can be a problem at this stage as well, so if you have wobbled over keep an eye on it, put a cold compress on where you fell!
Just had a tradesman round to measure up for some new carpets (I don't know what I was thinking when I arranged it!) and he kept giving me funny sideways looks, I thought I'd forgotten to put my turban on..... but no my modest was preserved. In the end I just apologised for not being very enthusiastic and he asked if I was ok as I looked knackered!! Didn't do much for the self confidence but made me smile!!
Off to make another brew and then pretend I am laid out on a beach on the Italian Riveria sipping an Aperol Spritz 🍸

Horrible wet and windy here🌧🌧🌧🌧
Woke up at 3 as finding hard to breathe as have caught twins cold and nose is sore no hairs I suppose and bleeds if I blow it too hard or much😪😪
Just fought my way round Tesco then ended up falling over when I tried to put it in fridge not sure what happened over balanced
Eyelashes are going but brows hanging on at minute
Hope everyone has a good day

OK, so I'm all steroided up, spent the day somewhat manic -- not sure if that's steroids or just pre-chemo nesting -- and now heading to bed so I can be up bright and early for doctors and docetaxel. Thinking of you all -- sounds like perfect weather for a pajama day, Lesley.

my aches and pains cut in last night, spent quite a while in a lovely hot bath and then an early night with paracetamols and nurofen. So far all very manageable, but I'm sure that there is time for that to change!!
My jaw is aching, the soles of my feet are sensitive and I keep getting shooting pains down my legs, but I am still shuffling around the place! I also feel as if my nails are going to ping off!
Not sure if I will bother getting dressed today though, think it might be a jaunt from sofa/bed/bath etc.
The weather here is awful too, high winds, driving rain and it's not going to get light .... so rather reflects my mood.
No nausea, and everything is moving well (if you get my drift) so I feel sort of ok ..... still concerned that this T is going to bite me on my bum again though!
hope everyone is ok
