i do hope your blood results were back in good time today and you could go ahead with your chemo. It sounds strange to say hope you had chemo- but if you're like me You just want to get on with it without any hiccups. And now time to look after yourself .
ive done better today, bone pain and aches gone, but the mouth thrush and sore now kicked in again😥. Hubble though potato rosti might be good- any other potato is a no no-was really looking forward to but tasted like eating a spoonful of lard!! My youngest,7, asked how I knew what lard tastes like!! 😂😂.
Tomorrow my PICC line coming out😀Think this will be a big step for me, hope it doesn't hurt!
take care xx

Yes I had a great weekend thank you. Very busy but fun. I finally managed to celebrate my 60th birthday properly yesterday with hubby and some friends. It was lovely.
Hope all has gone well for you today and you’re getting through it.
Thinking of you.

Sorry to hear that the se’s this time have been miserable and are making you feel so tired as well.
Sleep is a body’s way of healing and you’ve been through so much. Do hope you feel better soon.
In the meantime be kind to yourself and go with it.
sending you some positive thoughts from France.
Love Rosie xx

Congratulations on getting through last chemo and being able to ring those bells 🎉🤗🛎🛎🛎!!
It is emotional...even I felt it after the rads and didn’t need to take the chemo pathway.
Glad to hear you are resting today and making time for yourself but also pleased that you were able to take your daughter to school. Very important for both of you (I’m a retired teacher, so know how much it means😉). How lovely also that your children are planning a celebration together - enjoy the chocolate and seeing them happy too.
I hope your se’s are not too awful and I’ll be thinking of you. That’s it!!! Yay!!!!
Enjoy your rest and relaxation and let the family all spoil you.
Hugs. Take care.
love Rosie xx

Yes, it was my HER2 test that came back as borderline, so they did a FISH test which takes longer for the results to come through. The surgeon was more optimistic than I and said, in her opinion, she thought it would be negative. It was an anxious wait and that’s when I geared myself up for chemo.
However she was right...so I didn’t have to have to go down that route. But as others have said, you throw everything at this disease, don’t you?
Have a good weekend and take care too.

Thanks for posting your blog again for us to read. I find it quite emotional, I’ll confess, because in the early days I really thought I’d be with you on the chemo pathway - I had prepared myself for it. So it sort of grounds me. You are very brave to write so frankly about it all. It is a beautiful picture of you and you look lovely regardless of hair or not...it’s your beauty from the inside!! Enjoy your lunch today.
Jem it’s a wet Burgundy this morning but we desperately need rain! The vineyards are stunning and the wine very good, in fact the grape harvest has already begun...very early. I so understand how you need to feel control over things and i bet you look gorgeous in your wig. My way of keeping some control was to choose very carefully who I told; i didn’t want to be a subject of discussion particularly when I wasn’t there!!! Enjoy the rest of your holiday.
I've got no excuse now, I’ve got some housework to do now it’s cooler!
Sending love and gentle hugs.

another insightful blog into this strange world we are currently living in- well done you. Beautiful picture of you. Interesting your thoughts on facing the reality re wig or not wig wearing. For me I find wearing my wig when I leave the house 1) gives me confidence and 2) allows me to be me rather than bc entering a room before me and face conversations I wouldn't chose to have. Somehow for me this is the way it gives the control back to me, this awful disease tries to take away so much of our control. But that is just me, a bit of a control freak really. We are all different people and there shouldn't be a route for us all to follow but somehow find our way through this crazy season in our lives.
Rosie- love Burgundy - have happy memories visiting prior to chin with my oh, drinking wine in the sunshine overlooking the vineyards 😀. Yes we will have happy memories from this holiday too. Spending time with oh and children has been great.
