Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning ladies!

 

Morning Shi! You're up early! That Bardo song was a Eurovision number wasn't it? 

 

Fairydust, good luck with bloods today, here's a little blood dance for you 🕺🏻💃🌈🕺🏻💃🕺🏻💃👯‍♂️👯👯‍♂️👯👯‍♂️👯

 

I forgot to mention I ditched my seabands yesterday for the last time, wahoo! Also I called unit on Thursday as my arm has been really sore this time and they told me it's because the veins can get inflammation. they told me to use an ice pack on it, take ibuprofen and also I could use ibuprofen gel on it too. It's still a bit painful but is a bit better.

 

Sue, Jellytot hope you managed some sleep last night. Ruth, Ali, Chaffinch, Karen and Buddyfan hope the SEs are manageable. 

 

Whats everyone got planned for today? I might try and finish the hat I'm crocheting. I bought 2 lots of wool when I started chemo planning on making myself a couple of hats. I'm now on my second one but I gave one to my mum and the other is going to my aunt, who saw my mum's and also wants one. So none for me! Will have to get more wool 😊

Have you tried drinking cranberry juice it’s supposed to help? I’ve been having it since cycle 2 because I have felt things getting a bit acidic but not full burning.

Claire Bell losing my dad to cancer during my own treatment made me super anxious about my own situation it has def left its mark on me as you have sadly too had to experience i my kids had the exact reaction stay positive and i promise it will vet easier for you all xxxxx
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire-Bell, sorry to hear of you family loss. We had a tough time in November thinking that we might lose my dad and OH’s mum, thankfully they are both still with us but for how much longer we don’t know. The strain it put on my husband was awful because his dad was also ill and very unwilling to have his wife out of hospital because he couldn’t cope and there was very little we could do to practically help.
Sending 💕and 💪to you and your family x
Good luck today Sue and Jelly Tot and anyone else that I’ve missed. Ring that 🔔either in reality or virtually and 💃 out of there with your heads held high x
Not a bad night for me, woke a few times but couldn’t be bothered getting up to wee so was desperate by 7:30 sleep was more important. Steroid cheeks are up and glowing after being as white as a sheet yesterday until the evening!
Hope you make lunch Karen, I loved Jamie’s when we had one but ours closed with his restructuring 😞
Hope you have a better day Ali and glad that parents evening went well x
Best wishes all for a good day x

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire Bell so sorry for your loss been where you are recently during treatment is really difficult to cope with the loss of a parent so sending you 💖 and 💪 to get you and your OH through this really sad time 💖
Member

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire, sorry to hear about your fil, sending you 😘😘🤗🤗 it  must be very difficult for you and your family especially with your treatment still ongoing, did you manage to finish chemo or was it delayed?

 

Ali, hope you manage to avoid the acne rash and you can get out and enjoy the nice day. Weather looks nice here at the moment sunny but frosty and cold.

 

Shi, I'll make sure to sell those shares! Are we now buying shares in moisturiser and sunglasses instead? 😉

 

Karen, if you phone up the N&N they'll tell you when your planning session is and when you start.

 

looking forward to those photos Sue and Jellytot and hearing that you're all done and home safe &sound 😘😘🤗🤗

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Morning ladies, had a bit of a restless night but slept a little so can’t complain, OH has kicked me out of bed for being a fidget bum!!

Claire-bell what a horrible few weeks for you to have to go thru...this journey brings enough to deal with, live can be so cruel and you are gonna feel a bit wobbly I. This sort of situation...sending you lots of love 💖 and hugs 🤗 look forward to those dancing days...they will come!! My rads start sometime during week of 19 Feb...haven’t had exact day or time yet, I’ve got 15 sessions then 5 boosters! I’m sure they are going to be a lot easier to deal with than chemo!!

Ali...the acid reflux is always bad that first night but then settles as long as I take the lanzaprosole each day....I’ve ticked that night off my list tho as won’t be dealing with that again!! Each day is making me feel more positive!!

Sue sorry to hear you didn’t sleep well again but today is your last one whoop whoop....look forward to seeing your tshirt 😊 and jellytot go dig that wig and ring that bell 🛎

I’m getting a bit lost now but anyone else I’ve missed hope today goes well!

The support we have for each other is just bloody amazing!!

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Claire Bell so sorry for your loss. It is so hard trying to stay strong for everyone else, trying to stay strong ourselves and especially staying strong for our children.

We just have to remind ourselves that this is life and the hardest part of life is most definitely the loving and losing. We just have to gp through it when we wish we didmt and the pain of loss would go.

You are bound to feel.super emotional Claire but i hope you can all support each other. Also claire go and have a blub tp a friend or some9ne who can just be there for you. To listen and comfort. Lots of love xxc

Re: October 2017 Chemo Starters

Didnt make it on yesterday to wish everyone luck sorry! Was awake from 3 with steroids then looked like a blown up tomato all day!! Made it to my sons parents night though and it was amazing!!

Karen the acid is yuk! I have 20mg omeprazole and can take 2 when needed and they seem todo the trick. Thank God. Hope you feel better today xx

Sue that cry will have done you the world of good. Sending you all my good wishes for today. Well done you have done amazingly well xxx

Jencat all good wishes to you today too. We have all come a long way. I was just thinking how scared we were thinking about that first treatment. Well done ch8ck and good luck today xxx

I hope everyones side effects are minimal today. Its going to be cold, fresh and sunny here today. Just the way i like it. I have to remember my suncream though, if i manage to get out, as i am hoping to avoid the acne rash!

I am expecting my steroid crash later though so there will probably be a few tears flowing then. Such an emotional journey!!

First injection today too - the joys - but hey my bloods have been good so.no complaints!

Wishing everyone a good day today. Lots of love xx
