sparklesunshine Sat 15-Jun-13 16:29:19

Oh oh topsy, what have the girls done?

amberlight Sat 15-Jun-13 17:00:51

Ruby, you shouldn't be feeling that envy. Different potions needed?

Yes, Topsy, what's going on over there?

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 15-Jun-13 17:14:56

oh that capecitabine- it can do that-sometimes I've had no nausea and other times feel really quite queasy.
Poor ruby - (stroke Ruby's hair comfortingly)
Had a nice afternoon walking round lovely garden in Haslemere -very windy. Had the most delicious ginger cake and a cup of tea too.

GoodbyeRubyTuesday Sat 15-Jun-13 17:23:44

Think it's from the infusion as capecitabine nausea tends to set in about a week later, it's not that bad, I don't feel queasy/nauseous as such more just a need to throw up hmmconfused very strange and irritating, no party for me tonight! Thanks for hair strokes and comforting words everyone smile

topsy what's happened?!

MAS sounds lovely, did you manage to avoid rain?

malteserzz Sat 15-Jun-13 17:25:29

Must be a cakey sort of day, dh has made cinnamon buns yum
Can I take my steri strips off my boob or do I have to let them fall off naturally? The ones under my arm all fell off a few days ago but these are just peeling and look a bit grubby, best to leave it covered as long as possible though ? Been 11 days since my op

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 15-Jun-13 17:26:11

poor love... yes,avoided rain too- and there were lovely sunny bits in between the clouds. It was dog heaven too as the owners have 2 lurchers.

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 15-Jun-13 17:27:36

I would just soak them a bit in the bath and if they are loose enough peel off but not if they need pulling.. saw those cinnamon buns on fb- they look fab...I now want one

malteserzz Sat 15-Jun-13 17:40:36

One side is almost off but the other is quite stuck on maybe id better leave them be
Buns were lovely!
Your walk sounds nice MAS we've had heavy rain and sun today
Shame about the party ruby but think of all the parties you will go to when this is all over smile
Topsy what have the girls done ??
