Thank you for your lovely words, I know it is the right thing to do but I just need to get my head around having another op with all the anxiety that comes with it, its not as if I need my womb and it does not bother me in that way, I am sure I will be better in a few days.
T o make you laugh, and honestly I would if I was in a better frame of mind, I managed to puncture the fleixible watering hose I was using on the front garden as I pulled it through the hall, yep you got it, I flooded the hall, spent ages mopping it all up. Then i have just spent 15 minutes trying to find my car keys whcih were in my handbag all the time!!!! I am playing in a league bowls match tomorrow, I hope I can find my bowls and work out which way to bowl them
Ah Helena not quite the news you were hoping for but it's better gone before it causes any more issues my lovely, easy for me to say but the ladies here who have been through it will be able to reassure you that it's all doable 😊 Xx
thank you my friend, must admit they are usually the ones I buy xx
These vouchers are ones I got for signing up for an M&S card, I will leave the others for when I am over it all and treat myself xxx
You have read my mind, I have been on M&S looking for exactly what you have just advised me to get, thank you so much mate, didnt expect to be spending my M&S vouchers on something like these but hey ho needs must
You are a star
What like a size bigger than you actually are? Does that apply to the joggers as well
thanks for the heads up on that one, will make sure I get some.
Now one thing I am not sure about, I have not had an op for many many years requiring an overnight stay. I have some pyjamas which are cropped and the sleeves on the top are short, will they be ok for this type of op or should I get a nightie?
Dont feel either at the moment my friend. Need to just give myself time to process it all and get my head round it.
Unfortunately I will not be able to have key hole as there is not enough cervix to enable it to be done that way, so I will hopefully be having bikini line, will know more when I go back on 5 July. I will hopefully only be in hospital for 2/3 days.
Basically the lining of my womb is a lot thicker than it should be for a lady of my age, so they want to remove my womb. I am going to be having the op in the next 6/8 weeks.
Scared to say the least, but having had a bit of time to process it, I know that this is the best thing as it takes away all the risk, and on a positive slant, it means that I will be able to stay on tamoxifen as I will have no womb to worry about, which means that dont have to worry about my osteoporosis if I had to go on any other hormone blocker.
Oh flipping heck, lets hope she can sort something out for you tomorrow.
Hope you had a lovely weekend with Macsen xxx
Well the end of my birthday week and I am shattered. I am not used to going out so much in a week.
The guys from work took me out last night, spoiled me rotten but also well and truely got me as they arranged for a cake to be brought to the table with all the waiting staff singing happy birthday to me. I was talking away and heard someone singing it but thought it was for someone else so you can imagine when I looked up and saw them round me, I was moritified.
It is a birthday I will treasure for all the wonderful memories, cards and presents I have had, totally and absolutely spoiled.
that is really good to hear, although it is a shame it has taken for other people to be hurt as well for a plan to be put in place.
As Ruby says, you come first always xxx
Lesley, kudos to you for getting through the yoga. I liked the tai chi, and will go again, although even then found some moves too tricky, wot with me back and now left knee going to pieces, & forget anything on one leg! Grr. xxx
it's horrible for you to go through this and not have the security of knowing that you will always be safe. I know how much you love your job, but your safety is paramount. Hope today is a better day, and what a lovely weekend to look forward to with lots of Macsen hugs. xxx
Oh mate I am so sorry that has happened to you, how are you feeling today, hopefully it is much better my friend xx
OUch Clair, not good, you’ll probably be on edge on the time now, I know I would be worried it will happen again.
Really enjoyed my yoga session, taught by a stunning French ladybut it’s her last class until end of September as shes due to give birth anyday so new teacher until then from next week. Oh boy, did I feel my age though. I used to be so supple as was shocked to find out how much core strength I’ve lost, though have to say I was still a lot “bendier” than some of the younger ladies there. However, balance has never been my strong point and now forget it. This standing on one leg, even with my hip leaning on a table, no chance. AND despie the curry lunch no wind problem.
Still lovely weather here so no excuse not to get outside and tackle the weeds xx
Love your birdies Helena, very posh and a lovely present.
Love that yoga pic Lesley - too close to the truth for me & defo not after curry! My old bones can't take yoga or pilates now, but am trying a tai chi beginners class tonight. Will see if I can manage that. Good health and hugs to all fluffies (& honorary other-half fluffies) everywhere. xxx
They are from the National Trust xx Tell you what they dont half spin when the wind blows as it has been this evening here xxx
Oh that is so funny xxx Can relate to that as I have been for a curry tonight, god help the service manager who has to sit by me tomorrow xx
Helena and Dizzy, the birds are beautiful and the right way up, or certainly look that way to me after a glass of vino. What a lovely and thoughtful gift xx
OMG that is amazing, Rob my boss was a Shugborough yesterday and he saw them, he knows how much I love my garden and got it xxx
Sorry pic is still upside down but I just turned my laptop the other way round to see it xx
I have the same balancing birds in my garden, my sister bought them for me for Christmas. I hope this picture posts the right way up, it is upside down and I can't persuade it to change. So here goes....(have I said IT isn't my strong point...?)
I had a wonderful day, and was well spoiled. It carried on today as I had more pressies from Colin, slippers (I always get them for my birthday and xmas) and a beautiful Cross pen. Apparently there is something else that I have to pick up from the post office tomorrow as they tried to deliver it today.
I had this from my colleagues at work, was absolutely gobsmacked and burst into tears
I had been saying that I was looking for a sculpture for my garden xx
So glad you enjoyed your birthday Lady H, sounds like you were as spoiled as you deserve to be. You share a birthday with my niece.
Tomorrow I’m out for a curry lunch with a friend then in the evrning I’m starting a yoga class with another friend, pity the poor person behind me! Expect Ruby could come up with an appropriate pic for that. Many years ago, over 32 as it was before I was married the same friend and I used to do an aerobics class and she used to be in hysterics as I was always moving in the wrong direction and causing chaos but not even realising it as I was so intent. Let’s hope I’ve improved, I certainly won’t be leaping about l8ke I was in those days.
Hope you’re all enjoying the lovely weather we’ve still got. Had a 20 minute shower yesterday evening and that was it. The only downside is now I’m the house gardener is the flipping watering that needs doing xx
Oh thank you so much for your lovely wishes. Hope you had a fabulous holiday.
Yes I have had a lovely day, relaxed in the garden with coffee and biscuits with an old friend, I had sooo
many pressies and cards it was amazing plus a birthday cake which is something I have not had for many years
A very happy birthday to you Helena! Sorry it's late in the day but have just arrived back in the country.
Hope you have had a wonderful day Xx
Thank you so much for your lovely wishes. Have had the day off so enjoying the relax, sunshine and just had a celebratory sausage sandwich, gosh I live on the edge xxx
