Meesh glad your hair has survived the wash great news. Lost a bit more with the wash today think it'll be full on bald by this time next week. It'll be interesting to see what colours and if we end up curly when it all grows back wont it ladies. Karana, agree buttering duties for oh for him then and also a bit of cleaning you need to avoid germs. Mrs Meow, you have a good water company very very good service. I am a woossy needle phobe no more and have just done my 1st injection on my own, funny how 6 days of being a pin cushion in casa nhs toughens you up isnt it. Dizzy thats a relief for you that your daughter has gone off the sparkles this year for halloween bet her cosume is amazing. For those of us with cats, is it just my cats that have forgotten how to use the cat flap because you are in they see you as their own personal back door opener? or am I just too soft with them. They've had me up and down like a yo-yo today and its only 10.15. I've let them out, they then use the cat flap to come back in and then they want me to let them out the back door again.... I didnt expect at the start of 2017, I'd be playing door games with the cats by end of Oct. Ladies have we agreed a destination yet where we are going to meet up? We need to find a food place for us to book, unless we are all still craving the Maccy D's by then. Speaking of Maccy D's I'm having one tonight, been craving one since Jencat had one the other day and can resist the craving no longer. Has anyone risked a wig off amazon? I've been having a look and see one thats under £20 that I might take a chance on. Im not going posh wig shopping till the chemo's done. Has anyone got a lgfb course this week? Is anyone leaving it till after chemo before they go on it? Cassie, hope you re ok sweety. sending lots of love and sparkles and get better dancing Shi xx
Hi Dizzie, i think that's the thing with curly hair it falls out then gets trapped in with the rest of your hair so when you wash it quite a bit comes out. I always had the same problem, plus I didn't brush it very often either! Sounds really manky I know but as you'll know curly hair doesn't deal well with being brushed! 😊
Chaffinch, perhaps you can persuade the cat to sit on your head to keep it warm 😹 My cat is not happy with me thus morning as she wants to snuggle up on my lap on the sofa and I've got to work so am at the kitchen table! I'm glad my supply wasn't cut off this morning, I couldn't have gone another day without washing my hair!
Speaking of which, hair wash is done, loads of hair came out (probably end up with a blocked toilet and OH will go nuts, but didn't know what to do with it). I think I'm going to get a friar tuck look as the top is looking very thin, but elsewhere it isn't so bad, I'll see how it looks once it's dried, maybe I can do something with a wide headband 🤔, will definitely gave to get wig trimmed though. Glad to have nice clean head though and to be rid of the matting!
Karen, I'd be gleeful too about OH not getting to golf! They do sulk though don't they and sometimes dealing with that us worse than them going in the first place!
Cassie, sending some more 🦄🌟🦄🦄✨✨💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻💃🏻🕺🏻💫⚡️🕺🏻💃🏻🕺🏻🌈🌈💃🏻
Buddyfan, good luck today with chemo 2 I'll send the chemo 🚂👨🏻✈️
My T2 today
Just waiting for the porridge. Hubby stayed in bed all day, partly to keep away from me. My temp is v.good and uti that put me in nhs and delayed chemo is clear, so all systems go.
Meesh, sorry to hear you're in hosp but best place if you have infection. Do you other ladies have a specific oncology suite of rooms? We have a MacMillan unit which is where they admit you for initial investigations and antibiotic hit, during thw working week. outside hours it's A&E but I have a card to say they must see and give antibiotics within hour. From either of those, fingers crossed it's the oncology ward with individual, en-suite rooms and excellent service and oncology doctors. Otherwise, it's the general wards where they aren't so specialised. eg. they take blood from arm rather than line.
Karama, I've started Corsodyl, fesh mint mouthwash, on advice. Tried the plain and it left a foul taste in my mouth in the night and morning. First few tries it was a real blast and I didn't like it, but used to it now.
Good luck any others on chemo today.
