I have been through so much for this past year. Diagnosed twice with breast cancer in both breasts. 2016 September had a partial mastectomy and 5 weeks of radiotherapy. September 2017 diagnosed again with invasive cancer in the second breast and had a complete mastectomy.  Age 63 and so tired

Morning everyone:-)

The bad...reading  with a heavy heart all the new people posting on here. The pain of coming to terms with diagnosis is so palpable in everyone’s written word I can almost touch it:-(

The good... the people posting on here giving support to others is heart lifting. Some still in the midst of it “all” and the ones years after the “event” and still coming on here to show others what can b achieved. 

Have as good a day as you can everyone x

No bad for me today yeahhh:-)

the good:- had a great day with the granddaughter while other lil one at school...harder shift than work mind;-)

Love the gadgets in daughters house. Alexa switch table lamp off, Alexa- switch kettle on. Alexa turn heating up to 22. Alexa play grans playlist ( music). Luckily school drop offs nd pick ups are  just under 4 mile walk or might not be able t justify the cake nd biscuits I’ve demolished:-)))

Lol true but... will b like a house end if don’t even get up yt put kettle on ha ha.

todays bad... 2 yr old granddaughter diagnosed with  cold urticaria:-) basically if she is warm but touches anything cold ( ie bare feet on tiles or wood floors) she comes out is huge hives ( nearly her full feet going up her legs). Gets them on her face even if warm but a breeze etc. So now on daily doses of antihistamines. Her sister got it around this age too luckily she grew out of it by 4 yrs so hoping lil one will too. Can b very debilitating hoping the antihistamines control it. 

The good...cold but sun shining. Playing the patient for lil one ( she has her drs coat nd bag nd checking me over:-) stories next ( with cuddles) love family time:-)

have as good a day as u can peeps x

Aw bless. It’s awful  just come on in the last couple of days. It’s quite unusual- dr brought others in to see it nd took photos. 

Tbh if she is like her sister it won’t bother her too much but it looks really bad. Her toes nd fingers are nearly doubling  in size if comes up on them:-(

really hoping she grows out of it ( apparently it’s unusual for them to grow out of it though so fingers crossed). X
