Morning Ellen. How are you? What's the plan for December? Here, lots happening or has happened. Let's start with the mundane. Someone I was told was a gardener turned out to be a wrecker. I think he has burnt out the lawnmower engine, he broke the handle to the weedeater, which makes me want to find a baseball bat. The more important is my car is finally back and yet there is a strong smell of petrol whilst driving and the engine is switched on. I can't find if it's leaking petrol. I had a CT scan on 21st October. That has changed since the one I had in June. The response to treatment and the reduction in the lump is a little more than 80%. I have had 8/8 cycles. There are new and wonderful side effects which I am hoping will join the navy sooner rather than later. I was sent to make an appointment with a surgeon on Wednesday. Got an appointment for Friday, which was yesterday. They need 3 weeks after the last treatment before they will do the operation. Makes it tricky because it's too close to Christmas, so, it's scheduled for Monday 9 January. Premed or preop happens on 6 January. I've been told, in Sunday evening, operation on Monday and, all going well home on Tuesday. The fir

Hello and good morning Ellen just popped in to say hello and ask how are you doing? I am well and thank you for the prayers. Nothing exciting happening except the same, odd issue with my car which I was told is cracking all concerned heads in. I thought that was amusing. I also have one treatment lrft and then its on to the next chapter. We still have loadshedding daily and that needs to be worked around. Have a lovely day and smile all the while.

Hello Ellen, i hope you are well just to let you know I am okay. Just have peeling skin on hands and feet. Still here, coughing somewhat and eating okay too. Go back to see oncologist on Thursday hopefully 7/8 on Friday morning. Car is at an auto ekectrican and it's been a week no news of when I'll get it back. So now it's getting someone to take me to the hospital to make my appointment on Thursday. I know there is still tomorrow. Maybe miracles will happen then I won't need anyone to take me at some awful hour, Loadsheading is still the bain of my life and I'm trying to work but get distracted so easily and sometimes waste pretty opus time. Have a good evening and rest of your Tuesday.

Hi Laura, By now, I hope and pray the news is better than good.
Cars can be a mixed blessing can't they. I remember the waits at the hospital; Walter only had about 10 sessions, but I found it hard as he found it difficult, and I couldn't do anything to help. I am so pleased you have "your doctor" back, I know what a difference it can make to your day.
All is well this side of this side of the world, well, my little patch is.
Laura, I wish for you, all the blessings I am blessed with, and if you only get half of them, you will be blessed.
Love, Prayers Hugs.

Thank you Ellen. I had treatment 6/8 on Friday. I had the best nurse by far on the day. I go for my second CT scan on Friday. Hoping it's just as good as the first one. My car isn't good and the mechanic has hopefully learnt a lesson. He has been back to resolve issues at least once a month since he worked on her in may and beginning June and told me all was well. So I've had to have a cousin fetch me at 5:30 am get me to the hospital and then off to work for her. My sister has done the fetching and that had been a little longer waitas I think she leaves at the ladt minute. Otherwise I am doing much better than I did on the first 4/8. The nausea is no where as severe as those sessions. There is still significant shrinkage and that makes me happy too. The doctor is back so that also has put my minds at rest. The one I saw when he was off work injured I did not connect with and it would have been a bad combination.
I hope all is well on your side of the world. We still have loadshedding but it's now between 4 pm and mog might maybe 5 am next morning.

Hello Ellen, I hope you are well. Just to let you know I'm okay. Had my 5th cycle of chemo yesterday. It is the 1st of the clear ones rather than the red one. So far I'm okay. Makes me exceptionally tired though. Feel a lot better after this dose than I did after any of the 4 I have had so far. My oncologist was in an accident about 4 or 5 weeks ago. He was back to see me on Thursday. I was really happy. Cried buckets of tears for some reason and he just let me. Going through another bout of loadshedding so being in the gardens is out of the question. Have a lovely Saturday and smile all the while. White light and blessings. Hugs galore.
