Hi Lovely Ladies.... Hope you're all well!
ElliesMum, I'm so pleased you managed nearly a full nights sleep.... Hope you get many more! 😴😴😴
I've started waking up 3 or 4 times during the night... So frustrating! 😴
Badboob, did you enjoy the concert? 💃🏼🎤
💜Fiona....hopefully you'll continue to feel well! Fingers and toes crossed! 🙏🏼💪🏼💗 I was on the same cycle as you but now the oncologist has delayed my no.4, my 'good week' is no longer Christmas week!! 🙄🎄🎅🏼
I'm not having problems with my nails so I'm unable to offer any advice! 💅🏼
Hope you all have a fab weekend, take care and stay 💪🏼 xxx

Thanks ElliesMum, I'm home now and curled up on the sofa with the fire going and plenty of water by my side deciding what rubbish to watch on telly 😃 I'm feeling reasonable. I get an instant headache and runny nose with the C but it's slowly wearing off. Not too much nausea as yet, that'll probably kick in tomorrow.
I hope everyone is well and keeping warm and toasty.
Have a lovely weekend 💪💪💐💐

Is anyone else having problems with nail discolouration? I've noticed that mine are just starting to look a little dark at the base, and I forgot to mention this to the oncologist today.

First of all sorry for my last post, too long and a bit of a rant!
It’s a strange world we live in where we are delighted that one of us is well enough to have chemo! But Congratulations FiMilan! I can imagine the relief! I hope it goes well tomorrow and you are well enough to enjoy Christmas! My next chemo is 18th, so I should be at my worse over Christmas, thank goodness I am at my sister’s where I can just veg out.
Aneeebel, I can also sympathise with your situation, I prepared myself to be told I would need to lose a breast, but was very relieved when told that would be unnecessary. I too am still proud of my puppies, at 62 they are still quite perky. All I can say is this is a wonderful place to just let it all out, in a safe place with people who absolutely get where you are coming from. So don’t hold back if you need to rant.
Still feeling very tired, no improvement in bottom area, but it’s DH Birthday tomorrow so we are off to London to see Tina Turner ( if I can stay awake) so I have slapped my happy face on and will get though it without ruining his celebration!

ElliesMum, I do love red wine, I have to say, especially if it's Italian. We're not big drinkers but could easily drink 3 bottles a week between the two of us. I still keep trying to work out what caused Humphrey's existence, it's either alcohol but I don't think I'm over the weekly allowance, a fall I had in July or just bad luck. Genetics inferred that there really wasn't enough history for it to be BRCA1 or 2 but I was borderline on whether I should be referred to genetics anyway (it seems I'm borderline for everything - lumpectomy/mastectomy, wbc for C2, referral to genetics).
Ive just looked at the clock and realised its just gone 9! That's a miracle for me to still be awake! 😂 I went to work yesterday for about 5 hours and was fast asleep by 8.15. However, I'm always awake anytime from 4.30 onwards. It was 5 this morning. And I did about 4 hours in the office again today.
Well done you on your students 👏👏 Chemical physics? OMG! That sounds very complicated.
Bed time now I think, it's suddenly started to hit me. Does everyone else suffer the same way?
Good night 🤗🤗🍷😉

Aneeebel, I'm so sorry to hear your news. How awful that C4 is delayed but absolutely right that you shouldn't be subjected to chemo if you're not fit enough. And no way are you a wimp, crikey you've been through so much already, you're more than allowed to feel attached to your boob 😉
I've got my oncologist appointment tomorrow, fingers crossed I won't be borderline again and I'll be able to do chemo on Friday. In preparation, me and hubby are enjoying a bottle of wine 🍷🍷 Well, I won't be able to drink red wine for at least a week after chemo, thanks to heartburn.
Christmas tree is up at last 🎄🎄 woohoo! Although I don't know why I've put it up as we're going to my parents for Christmas,Marion to C4 on 28th (hopefully) which should be the first T. In the meantime, I'm just counting the days, 40 done, 86 to go (all being well). 🗓
Take care lovely ladies 🤗🤗💪💪💐💐

Badboob... You poor thing! I do hope your bottom starts to improve soon! 💗
I'm virtually t-total too... I don't drink larger all the time... I haven't been well enough! (I'd hate you to think I had a problem!!! 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺)
Elliesmum, Thankyou for wishing me well! How are you doing?💗
I've been to see my oncologist today... I was due to have C4 on Friday but she said my bloods were shot at last week and as I'm still not 100% fit enough she's delaying my chemo for a week.... I did say to her that I was quite relieved as I don't think my body can cope at the moment!
She said that if I was okay after C4 then I would have C5 but my Breast Care nurse rang me saying my oncologist had emailed her to say I wasn't coping (or my body isn't!!) with chemo and perhaps surgery earlier than planned would be a better option and have the rest of my chemo afterwards!!
So I now have an appointment 'for a chat' with my surgeon on Tuesday!!! 💔
Have a lovely evening everyone xx 🎀🌻🌸
