    JTS says he's humbled at the support he's received from everyone on the thread and hope people understand that he doesn't feel up to posting just yet.

    Good afternoon lovely peoples

    I'm afraid I've had bad news.
    It appears the chemotherapy hasn't worked, and my cancer has spread into my spine already.
    I'm devastated

    Apologies, I'm getting better now I've been examined by a medical person, the pain was appalling
    Results are either Cellulitis, or an insect bite or a DVT...
    but definitely not Gout
    Take Ibuprofen - if pain gets worse to go back tomorrow..

    Sorry Emerald's Riley ♥ Hope you go home soon

    Be very carefully Snap.My niece was bitten by mosquitoes last week.She went to the doctors on Friday with swollen leg and fever.He sent her to A& E where she was diagnosed with sepsis,cellulites and fever.Spent the time in hospital on a drip,catheter and heart machine and had a visit from intensive care saying they had a bed ready for her.
    She is at home now and on very strong antibiotics.
    Afternoon all.amvery tired today.The chemotherapy has kicked in.

    My sale preview email didn't come in until this morning but then I've only got 5000 sparks points - you must live in marks

    I've got 20% off dresses, leggings and coats plus a £10 voucher for household so have to see what is the least worst time I can find.
    Plus some e vouchers to use up from converting TCB

    I spent hours last night putting an order together and when I got to checkout most of it disappeared. That happened another twice. In the end I spent £78 for about 5 items.

    JST...... So sorry to here that the chemotherapy hasn't worked. Please don't lose hope as there may be other options.

    I've been waiting for weeks for the results of my second year CT cancer scan and the wait is really depressing me so I know how you feel to a degree.

    Hope everything works out for you and may God bless you.

    DD has been scouring the shops looking for reasonably-priced pretty writing paper for DGD to write to all her friends at her old school. Can't find anything except blank cards, she doesn't want to send cards. We were laughing earlier remembering Christmases in the past. As a teenager, I used to hate being given 'notelets' - they were right up there with bathcubes as a non-event. And in her teens, DD hated being given 'stationery sets.'

    But today we want them back again!

    I had Prime for all of 72 hours in April. I was signed up for it during an order without me actually realising till afterwards (it must have been an order made at a Prime price, I guess, but I hadn't taken much that much notice) so I cancelled Prime instantly and got a cancellation notice from them within 3 days.

    Not too bad thanks bubbs. Had relatives arrive here last Wednesday, which I was dreading but they were ok and helped me a lot. The following day Thursday was mums funeral and wake. All went as well as can be expected. Friday relatives cooked, Saturday relatives cooked. Sunday morning they flew back to Abz. Loads of left overs so invited all my siblings round with their partners and we had a mini feast then went over the cemetery which is nearby to me to check on our parents grave. Made a nice sort of closure to everything, as most of them were back to work today.
    Still got DD here. She goes back to Ozzie land this Saturday Been great having her here though.

    Hope you doing ok

    ps relatives went to A's and got about £60 worth of stuff. Im like can I have the receipt and explained to them about APG. OH is like oh yeah sometimes she gets vouchers for £10+ I tried to explain that, that is target shops but they didnt seem to understand. Anyway, put their receipt numbers into the APG and it was only a voucher for 3p Embarassing or what

    Evening all

    Very disappointing afternoon tea with DH's friends They ate very little I happily worked away for ages in the kitchen making small bite size stuff

    They even failed to each more than 2 triangle sandwiches Oh well had then to distribute to neighbour, DIL and her friend

    Had a lovely evening with her friend as we chatted about tax, vat , business strategy etc. She does not know it yet but I am planning on brining her risk assessments up to speed and this is so exciting I am sad or what ? Rhetorical question

    Glad Riley's op is over and he did not need it pinned

    I sort of understand about risk assessments, and whilst it may float your boat now that I am retired it does not butter my crumpet!!
