Jelly I hope you get that picc and dressing sorted soon, fingers crossed no blood clots.

 

Sue hope the physio goes ok. I'd have loved to have stopped in town for a hot chocolate, but OH only put an hour on the parking ☹️Don't think he really wanted me out and about in town.

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

I love the scotch pancakes too, will definitely have to get some of those next time I go shopping. 

 

Went into town with OH with my list of things to get, needless to say we only got those things and came home! Probably for the best though. It's rainy here too glad to be back home on sofa wrapped in a blanket with furry lap warmer fully ensconced! Now watching a crappy Xmas movie!

Jelly poor you the first nurse at unit doesn’t sound helpful, at least the district nurse admitted she wasn’t confident rather than do it and create a problem x

Morning ladies
Buddy, what can I say except send I huge hug, bless you having to self catheterise that's tough! Although you will probably get used to it as tough as you are! X
Ladies up today good luck xx
Ladies up yesterday fingers crossed for a smooth round xx
Picc bled badly Tuesday, rang the district nurse who wouldn't come out as she wasn't confident...rang the chemo unit and spoke to a nurse who advised me to change the dressing myself !!... My poor OH had to do it bless him but we managed and yesterday I spoke to the unit again ( different nurse ) and they asked me to go in for a proper dressing change and more scans for clots etc. I'll be glad when it settles down , if it ever does !
Have a good day girls if possible xxx

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning again ladies, managed another hour and a half sleep. Had some fruit bread and just had a small bowl of porridge. Feeling less nauseous than last time but I’m nervous because I keep waiting for it to hit! The worst time was between 9pm and 2am so far.
Hope you get a good rest today Karen hand have a better night tonight. I’m a bit worried about the third steroid. Had one at 6:30, will have other ones at about midday and no later than 6pm and see how I get on. Will try to stay awake today so I’m tired tonight but I’m wiped out.
Meesh, glad you feel up to doing a bit of shopping but rest up when you get back. You’ve got another busy day on the 🚂 today too.
Good luck to everyone today. X

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning ladies...didn’t have a great night...went to bed and fell asleep quite quickly but then woke up at 1130 and cldnt sleep so got up and watched Legally Blonde with OH, came to bed after but was wide awake and jiffy, not sure I slept much at all 😱 don’t feel too bad today just tired, flushed and dizzy, the norm!! Not planning to do anything much!  Feel bad as it YS 21st Birthday and I’m not even gonna manage to see him ☹️☹️

 

Chaffinch sounds like you take almost the same meds as me!  I struggled a bit with water last night but will try and overload today!

 

Good luck with those on the 🚂 today, good job we have Meesh organising it 💃💃🦄💃🦄💃🦄💃

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Hi. Good luck today Shi and Ruth. I'll see you on the roof later. Just been weighed and now waiting to see onc. Normal procedure for each of my visits.

Hope everyone else is ok. Took me a while to get to sleep last night but I don't think it was steroids my feet were hot and kept needing to get up to wee as if drunk so much.

Sending everyone 🦄🦄🦄 hugs

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Karen, hope you had a good night too, I slept ok until OH woke me at 4am this time to ask if I'd slept well! 🐟🐟🐟👋🏻👋🏻 but dud manage to get back to sleep for another 2.5 hours. I've done my yoga and meditation this morning and planning to go into town for a quick Xmas shop to pick up some last few bits. I'm going early before it gets busy and also whilst I'm still feeling relatively ok. Then I can come back and spend the afternoon on the sofa watching the 100 box set or crappy Xmas films.

 

have a good day ladies, hope the SEs are minimal!
