Thank you Shi for my card, that's really kind of you! I've not opened them yet, but there's a couple with writing that I don't recognise, so hopefully one of them's yours! 60! How did that happen?! I suppose I won't be asked if I could be pregnant anymore at the hospital!
That's a nice idea to still buy yourself something from your Dad-I often used to buy mine from Dad when he was alive, so I could do that too.
Hope your mammogram was ok if you've had it yet and all the lovely Oct'17 ladies. I've got mine tomorrow morning and feeling anxious about it! xx
👭👭❤️❤️for tomorrow Jencat 😘😘hope your card has arrived ok that I’ve sent for your birthday. You could release a balloon to your dad on the day so you feel you’ve included him ❤️❤️ I still buy myself a birthday and Christmas pressie each year from my dad, it’s just my Way of ensuring I still celebrate with him even though no longer here. 😘😘💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Hello lovely Oct '17 ladies!
Just came on here to say hello to you all and realised I hadn't replied to your kind messages, I'm so sorry. I hope you're all doing well.
I've got a bit of a mixed week coming up-my mammogram is on Thursday morning, which I'm beginning to feel anxious about. My breast has still got a hard bit, which my onc has said is scar tissue, but I've started worrying it's not! (Results on the 20th when I see my consultant) Then on Friday it's my 60th birthday, which will be difficult without my dad, I always celebrated my birthday with him. I know I've been lucky to have been able to spend so many birthdays with him xx
its good to hear from you but im sorry you're not doing so well at the moment, sending ❤️ and hugs. As the others have said when you get your new phone perhaps you can join us on what's app. The walk was good if a little wet but we battled through and it was good to meet up and have a chat 😊
Mishy, Jay lovely to hear from you both too. Hope you're both doing ok!
Hi Jencat, sending love to you and your family. Hope the counselling helps you and as always we are all here for you if you need us. Once you have your new phone maybe you can join us on WhatsApp? xx
Jencat, good to hear from you ❤️ Its grieving Jencat 😘😘I am glad you are going to get some support for yourself and daughters 👭👭 💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Go go go all you ladies taking part in today's walk/run at Chatsworth - hope it goes well. Love Jay68 - May 2017 chemo starter! x
Thank you Shi for your message and for putting my name on your pink ribbon, that's really lovely x Love to you and all the Oct'17 girls x
Good luck to you all on the walk today-sorry I'm not mentioning you by name, but I don't know who's going. I'll be thinking of you all and look forward to hearing all about it! (A picture on our thread maybe?)
Shi mentioned you'd been asking about me, that's really kind of you, thank you. I'm up and down, more down really. Myself and my girls are struggling without Dad, there hasn't been a day yet where I haven't had a cry.Our local hospice has offered me some grief counselling, which I'm going to start in a couple of weeks time and which hopefully will help. I'm also 'mourning' leaving work suddenly-my daughter and I were going to nurse Dad at home and I couldn't cope with work as well. I think in time I'll probably realise that was the best decision even although Dad died soon after I'd decided to leave.
Sue W I think you said you'd text me-thank you, my phone's not receiving them! YD and I plan to go phone shopping next week! My laptop's not working either-I fell asleep the other day with a cup of tea in my hand.....! I'm using YD's laptop at the moment. I noticed she'd left a tab open which said 'what sort of phone is suitable for a middle aged woman who's not good with technology?' ! xx

Hi jencat, Drummerswidow on anyone-starting chemo in Dec 18 thread could do with 👭in Kent if you could reach out beautiful 😘thank you 💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Jencat ❤️❤️❤️Glad it was a beautiful send off for your dad ❤️❤️❤️Take each day a day at a time and have some ❤️❤️❤️Time with your girls. Big hugs and love Shi xx
Buddyfan, thank you so much for your kind wishes and hugs and so pleased to hear that your CT scan was stable xx
Thank you all for your kind wishes for Dad's funeral last week. It went off very well and lots of people commented what a beautiful service it was, so hopefully Dad would have been pleased with what we did. YD and myself are now staying with ED for a while in Oxford-we couldn't face staying at home for Easter this year as it would have been too painful without Dad as he always took us out for lunch on Easter Sunday and have tea with us afterwards and again on Bank Holiday Monday xx
Good to hear from you! The scar round my nipple has been quite sore the last few weeks and I did wonder if it was due to all the painting I’ve been doing or if it’s where I’ve put a bit of weight on and the scar tissue finds it difficult to expand. Not sure if that helps you at all. Never thought about stress affecting it but I suppose it could be that too 😊
nice to see you here in answer to your question I get some itching around scar tissue and what occasionally feels like electric shocks I had lumpectomy and full axillary clearance BC nurse said it’s nerve endings x
not sure about it being stress related though x
Hi buddyfan 😘 good to hear last cr scan stable 👍 I find the weather seems to impact a bit on how my scar area feels, don’t know why it just does. I find stress can make things feel tight, but used to get tightness with stress well before the bc, so personally think that’s what stress did to me anyway. Glad your meds are working and you are not in any pain. I must ask you to please send that photo into country file that you took, it is one of the best wildlife photos I have ever seen, I think it would make the calendar for sure 😘😘💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Thank you all very much for your kind wishes, I really appreciate them. My Dad's funeral is on Tuesday 16th, which still seems unreal and I'm dreading, but hopefully Dad would have been pleased with what we've arranged xx
Jencat, sending big ❤️❤️❤️From all of us 👭👭👭👭we are thinking of you and here for you ❤️❤️❤️💕💕💕Shi xx
Jencat sorry to hear that you lost your dad, sending you my thoughts, you have lots of lovely memories to hold onto xxxx
Jencat I'm so sorry! Deep love leaves a deep hole but I hope that hole is filled with many happy and lovely memories! Xxx
So sorry to hear about your dad passing and wanted to send you lots of love and hugs, thinking about you xxxx
Jencat 😘😘sending you and all the family big ❤️❤️❤️ The love and memories are yours always and they will bring great comfort as the days pass jencat ❤️❤️Chaffinch, can’t believe it’s a year already since you lost you dad sending ❤️❤️😘😘to you too 💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Thank you Shi, Ali and the Oct '17 girls for your kind words x Sadly my dad died on Sunday morning, we're heartbroken xx
Hi jencat ❤️❤️Don’t apologise for anything darling, you cherish every second you have with your dad. He will feel your touch and don’t stop speaking to him, he will still hear how much you love him and he will still hear when you speak about happy times and remembering things like holidays or Christmas or anything really you shared as a family. We are here for you jencat 👭👭always 😘😘💕💕✨✨Shi xx
Thank you Shi and all the lovely Oct '17 ladies, your kind thoughts are much appreciated. Sorry I'm only just acknowledging your post Shi, but I'm spending so much time with Dad and not getting home until late. We've managed to get Dad into a lovely care home, initially for respite care, but I think he'll probably stay there now. We're finding it hard that until recently Dad was very independent and in such a short space of time he is so poorly. He knows that we're with him and holds our hands, but sleeps alot now and we can't have a proper conversation with him anymore xx
Hi Karebear. I was her2+ but had fec then docetaxel with herceptin and pertuzemab. Then mastectomy and continued herceptin til December. Our plans are all individual I think.
Chaffinch, WELL DONE on finishing and getting through it all xxx
Hi karebear, please try posting on dec18 chemo thread, our thread is not very active anymore and the ladies currently on chemo will be able to share their knowledge with you better 😘hope you get the answers that will help you 😘😘💕💕✨✨Shi xx
