    JTS, what terrible news, after you being so pro-active and getting you own private scans.
    Is there any chance that getting these scans earlier than through the NHS; will mean any treatment possible; will be more effective in slowing down the progress of this vile disease?

    How's you?😊

    I'm making progress with my taps. I rang the company today and they asked if we had been having them serviced as per the warranty agreement

    Taps serviced

    As if

    Anyway long story short, they have agreed to send a part out so fingers crossed

    I'm ok bubbs, thanks so much for asking xx
    It's odd but now I don't work I seem to have less time to be on here, and I miss it!

    I'm continuing to 'chuck out' but it is a slow process.
    A friend of ours died suddenly almost 2 years ago and his wife/widow has now become a friend of mine and I am a bit caught up in supporting her in a new relationship........

    To be honest it is very lovely, he is the new'ish landlord at our local and he is really being romantic, not in a ucky mushy way
    it does mean that I , as an old lady, have to go out to 'Ska'?? nights to keep her company.

    On top of that I am seriously trying not to shop and use up stuff like Bubb's' beef!!!

    You set me off laughing.

    Kids at school are cheeky they come for their dinner and one day one will suddenly decide they allergic to say cheese

    So we say unless you get a note from home (cant say mum or dad) because some kids you don't want to know background

    Couple days later note arrives on scrap paper and writings that bad we know said kid's wrote it . So we read it then say right we will let teacher know and show them note and guess what They want note back and can eat cheese

    Mum's poorly, but I feel lucky to still have her, when I think about the terrible illness that others; much younger; are having to face.

    I just try to get by the best I can, mental health issues and physical pain aren't a good combination and sometimes I just feel completely overwhelmed, but know I have to pull myself together.

    Never heard anything so daft as servicing taps hope they send you the part you need and it's not too difficult to fit.

    The chemo tablet's are awful to swallow and the anti sickness drugs are giving me indigestion and heartburn and insomnia.I was in a dreamlike state all night and not sleeping.Thats why I am so tired

    Yes.It is the 4 steroid anti sickness that it is doing it.I have not got to take any more of these for 3 weeks.Thank goodness'
    Originally posted by savvy sal
    Good evening, JTS sorry about your results, sal I would think it's the steroid that making you wired, is it prednisolone 5mg tabs, so 20mg a day?, if you can maybe ask if taking them in the morning will help, some of the anti sickness meds can make you sleepy, which can be useful when trying to get some sleep, maybe just the daily routine being altered will help, good luck.

    Never mind 'what is Ska', what I want to know is what are noteletts?? I gather some sort of writing paper, but what makes it special?

    Why can't I drive? Well I can barely even walk Had a silly mishap on Wednesday. Went to put a load of washing out and fell over the line prop. Landed face down on the grass. Managed to crawl to the line post and pulled myself up. Couldn't walk though. Managed to wake DD1 up by shouting her and she helped me in. A marathon wait in A & E followed. Luckily no serious damage just damage to the muscles and tendons in left leg. Getting about on crutches now and pain is getting better each day. I have some lovely black bruising and lots of swelling I am sure I will be mobile again soon. No biggy compared to what some peole are going through:

    I remember getting lovely notlettes with puppie and kittens on when I was a kid, must of got a different set each year , and was expected to write a thank you to all the aunts at christmas😔, one aunt still gave me them until a few years back and I still have some, must admit I did use them for my kids notes to school, neither of them thought anything of it .
