Michelle, I can only imagine how tough that was telling your children.
Feeling nervous going into the unknown is the norm even with some info/knowledge beforehand.
This is the start of treatment which is good .... you’ll have one treatment done by the end of today.
thinking of you today
Just read the new posts on this thread, Michelle and realised you're starting chemo today, good luck and hugs. It's scary, but I've already realised we're all much stronger than we think we are, even if it doesn't feel like it sometimes. I'll be thinking about you today. xxx
The best of luck for today Michelle 💪💪 Its awful having to tell our kids and goes against the grain as a parent to do anything to unsettle them. We kept as upbeat as we could in front of them but honest at the same time , they were fussing around me for a while but they soon got back to doing their own thing which is just what we wanted them to be doing and not worrying about me! 3 years on they have all but forgotten it even happened!
It is so tough and had someone told you months ago you would be dealing with this you would have said no I couldn't do it but here you are doing it! 👌 Xx Jo
I got feedback from my bcn.... no huge surprises on MRI...size is approx to uss and other side is ok. I’ll see what MDT says next Wednesday. Plus I’m HER2 neg.
Sounds as though you have a very supportive husband. I too worried about my hubby but he’s medically minded and has a positive outlook however I have told him he may need to talk to someone other than me about how he feels as things have a habit of catching up. Anyway we prop each other up....
Best wishes and positive vibes for tomorrow
Yes it’s a great sunny day...just been to the seaside for a walk and will be popping back l8r while the suns still shining.
Hope you’ve got sorted somehow today. There appears to be lots to take into account. How’s your hubby / children ?
Sounds as though there is lots of support and good advice for you on here/ other thread.
Ill be thinking of you tomorrow.
Ive not had a meeting with my nurse...she’s just back to work today. I’m finding email seems to be the easiest way of getting in touch. My MRI hadn’t been reported on for the Tuesday MDT...it was a BH when I had it so it’ll be next week. I can’t see why I couldn’t have a courtesy call 🤔 just to give me a heads up .. ie is other side ok, extent etc... just a bit of prep before clinic appt....anything but ‘pigeon post’.
Oh well, hey ho .... feel in limbo
That words probably a throw back to work .... ex NHS !!!
My goodness Michelle, that’s quick but you’re starting treatments so that’s positive. You’ll definitely have lots to sort out. There’ll be lots of information and support from those who have been and are going through chemo now.
Glad to hear you’re looking to have the ‘social stuff’ in your diary also.
I’ll be thinking about you on Friday and hope you will let me know how you’re doing. I’ll keep an eye out for your posts anyway.
Sending positive vibes
