Another shiny thread

graciesmall09 Mon 03-Sep-12 13:47:16

Jumps over from old thread, grabs a few fbs and heads off to do the school run.

ooh! new thread - i will never remember it all from old one though but sorry to lime sometimes life just sucks. hugs

gigs dd is a little better and has gone school trouser etc shopping with son and girlfriend (and an alarming amount of cash). She talked to me a little bit last night about how miserable she was that I have cancer and how she thought it was making her sick. Have tried to explain that holding stuff in like fears and worries doesn't make them go away but makes the fears come out in another way...

aw poor love otm - dd sounds a lovely girl.
Well done gig for shiny new thread -had noticed we were creeping up to 1000 !

Oooo lovely new thread. I like the curtains.

<plonks herself down>

OTM heck re dd. The cancer charities often have very good counsellors to talk to/with younger members of the family. Might be worth a thought. You probably knew that already though. Have a cake.

I have homemade lemon meringue pie for the fbs trolley
2 days from now and I will have 'sore nipple-itus'
Thinking of all

overthemill Mon 03-Sep-12 15:10:44

amber the problem is that d will not 'talk'. She's had real problems since we picked her up and moved her away from our old home (long story, we did it out of necessity) and she was bullied at new skl then the next one and now, finally, she is happy st school about to move up to upper skl and is relaxed and happy. that is until stupid old mother got diagnosed with cancer and dd started vomiting, again. it's ust what she does when she is anxious but she can do it 24 times a day (and in the night) and she stops sleeping and begins to look like a zombie...we did get her to cahms once but the therapist she saw really wasn't very good and didn't 'get' her at all nor how bright she is. she described him as a patronising post graduate with self esteem issues!

overthemill Mon 03-Sep-12 15:12:19

will now eat cake then back to cleaning out cupboards only 1 more day before i feel crap again

NedSchneebly Mon 03-Sep-12 15:29:29

Afternoon all - am I allowed back?! Sorry I've been a stranger for a while - been busy, away at parents, doing holiday stuff with DS etc.

Normal MNing service should resume tomorrow when DS goes back to school!

So much going on - sending out hugs for tests, results, treatment, other medical pokings and proddings, difficulties with DC, legal paperwork stuff, stress and generally anyone in need of brew and cake.

My sore bits have finally healed, and I have got an appointment through with oncologist at end of sept. what will it involve? Do I need DH there?

Hope the sun is shining where you are smile

OddGoldBoots Mon 03-Sep-12 15:57:28

I'm fed up of name changing and the stress that goes with that so I am de-cloaking, Lumpy here. If anyone from real life recognises me here, please keep this to yourself unless I say otherwise (that'll be common sense, right?).

Lots of love to those with stress and soreness. brew

MaryAnnSingleton Mon 03-Sep-12 17:03:58

ned think it'll be a general check up to see how you are healing after rads,how the tamox is going etc - a physical examination - nothing scary grin
lovely to see you back here.

amberlight Mon 03-Sep-12 17:23:03

Ned, yup, my first Onc examination after chemo and rads was general questions, a feel of boob (s) and underarms to check all OK so far, and off I went again. Nothing too stressful, though I did take someone with me anyway.

OldGoldBoots, we have a decloaking device? Egads! No chance we have a transporter beam 'n all, is there? I could do with a nice tropical island visit...

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 18:26:39

Yes the fbs mark 28 has a transporter tropical island

NedSchneebly Mon 03-Sep-12 18:34:15

I am right there with you, gig and amber!!

topsyturner Mon 03-Sep-12 20:09:54

<sharpens elbows and shoves way to the front of the transporter queue>

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 20:17:00

It won't transport you to Tom
Jones dressing room topsy

topsyturner Mon 03-Sep-12 20:30:55

But ... but ... I thought it was magic ?

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 20:33:04

Yes but it is sensitive to orange so we must use it carefully. It has keep away from this in large letters on ittango

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 20:51:49

I think you can transport to see this lot cyclists dancing

graciesmall09 Mon 03-Sep-12 20:53:51

Waves to ned nice to see you back. Glad your burnt bits are feeling better.

Can't believe we aren't even on page 2 and oh so orange man has already had a mention grin. He really should have a government health warning.

Rads appointment through - 1st October shock.

Nearly New Tricks time so waves to all. See you tomorrow. Please fingers crossed everyone my picc works when the nurse comes. Don't think I could face another 4 hours at hospital.

graciesmall09 Mon 03-Sep-12 20:55:50

Oh like that one gigs at least most of them are below 50.

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 20:58:07

Mind you don't end up in this blokes entourage I think he is inspired by mc hammer

Gigondas Mon 03-Sep-12 20:58:57

Fingers and toes crossed for you gracie - I am loving my 2 weeks off picc lines.

graciesmall09 Mon 03-Sep-12 21:09:08

Did they take your picc line out gigs? I didn't realise I thought they were just treating the infection. Mine comes out permanently in 8 days.
