Thanks Meesh, the course was ok thanks, it was about reading and it was interesting, but the young teachers made me feel old! xx
Hi cherry B, good to hear you kept most of your hair and that you're doing well. I managed to keep a fair amount of hair too, although was sporting a bit of a friar tuck look by the end 😂 But nothing could make me wear my wig (Shirley). Did you ever go and collect that wig? 😂 I had cut my hair short prior to treatment and it grew back and blended in really quickly so no ken Dodd look for me 😊I just look like I have a 🎤 head! 😱
Jencat, hope your course went ok! Buddyfan, hope you're doing ok and that your arm is healing.
Shi, hope you've had a good weekend 😊
Hi Shi, Happy New Year! Can't remember if I've already wished you it, but it won't hurt to wish you it again! I hope it's a healthy and happy one for you x
Work is going ok thanks and I'm enjoying it, my class are lovely. I still tire easily, but my stamina is gradually improving-I can now work a whole day and do something afterwards! I've been on a course this morning and was told yesterday that I'm being observed teaching in a couple of weeks time,so back to normality! (I escaped it last term!) I panicked a bit at first, but then thought if I can survive chemo,what's an hour of being watched! (A bit of a dramatic comparison I know!) How are you and all the gang? I miss them all not being on here! Say hello from me! xx
Happy new year everyone! I've given up making New Years resolutions as I never stick to them 🙄 Buddyfan, hope that arm is better soon. What a difference a year makes, I was just happy to be able to celebrate and see the new year in. What has everyone else got planned for this year?
Thank you Mishy for your lovely post x (I've also sent you a hug, I've just learnt to do them! A new year and a new skill already! ) xx
Slightly depressing thought, in a couple of minutes time I won't be able to say that I'm 60 next year anymore! xx
Thank you so much for your kind words buddyfan and so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope your arm is feeling much better now x
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2019 xx
Hello everyone! Hope you all had good xmases. I enjoyed my soft cheese, just because I could eat it this year 😂 Buddyfan sorry to hear about your arm, how annoying but it's good to hear you're doing ok apart from that.
Mishy/ Shi, I can only imagine how you feel about your curly hair. You have to forget everything you know about your old hair and start again. It took me years to learn to accept mine and work out what to do with it and I was born with it 😂🤣😂 It's funny as people always say to me "oooh you're so lucky to have curly hair, I'd love mine to be curly". What people don't realise is that curly hair never looks tidy, there's always at least one bit that's not doing what you want it to, you just have to embrace that as tomorrow it'll be a different bit 😂 The good thing though is that it has plenty of body 😂🤣😂 here's something that I thought you might like, you might have to copy and paste the link as I'm not very good at technology!
Thank you Meesh x Can start enjoying Christmas a bit more now as although I have been,the CT scan has been at the back of my mind.
Have a lovely time with Karana and give her a hug from me x
Thank you Jill x Tbh, I still can't take it in really. I should stop worrying a bit now, but I've spent the last 18mths worrying about bc.
We met the mother of my daughter's friend at the chemo unit yesterday and she's got terminal lung cancer, so I found getting my good results rather bitter sweet. I was thrilled for myself, but felt so sad for this lady.
YD and I went and celebrated in a tearoom afterwards and had cream scones (they were huge and I enjoyed every mouthful! ) and when the lovely lady on the till heard our good news she didn't charge us! How kind was that! (ED said typical,YD offers to pay for once and then doesn't have to! ) x
Thank you Jelly tot x Good news, I was told yesterday that I'm in remission! I still can't really take it in that I haven't got cancer anymore having been diagnosed 18mths ago. The best Christmas present!
My chemo onc has now discharged me, which I wasn't expecting as I'm TN. I'd had the impression before that I would still see her for the first few years. I know that's a good sign, but I liked the reassurance of seeing her!
How are you? xx
Thank you Shi for your lovely message x I'm feeling quite anxious about seeing the onc this afternoon. I've had this scan hanging over me for the past 6mths, but hopefully they wouldn't have left it for so long if they were worried that rads hadn't zapped the last bit of cancer?! x
The foot massage was very relaxing Jill and I'm wondering if it might help a bit with the neurpathy I've still got in my toes x
