Hi billygoat

well your night was totally sucky bless.

friends husband has spread too ... I think its very likely he has gone private. His wife has just been diagnosed too and just finished her chemo ( she has faired well all things considered). All we have been told about son in laws uncle is it’s late stage and palliative care only. He won’t talk about it and continues to be a heavy smoker and drinks to match. What the hey enjoy to the limit eh. 

I hear you on the night sweats. I reckon one of my legs is gonna be so muscular with the kick the quilt off nudge it back on rpt nightly ritual. Gotta do what we gotta do I suppose. 

I am sorry to hear your wife is so unwell. It must be so difficult for you .... I tip my hat to the dedication, love and support you are giving her when all you will want to do is rest yes sir I tip my hat. 

Here’s hoping the only way is up and tonight brings a more restful night for you.

all the best to you and your wife.

Hi Sandra it's nice someone's heard of it, it does not like cemo when I was having cemo it stopped my medication working it finished up going into a coma luckily wife called ambulance, its called addesonion crisis if in coma for long you die, did you know it stops immune system working properly, even a cold can be dangerous, I've been told to keep a vial of medication at home always. Just in case, my first specialist didn't tell me that. Hope your cousin is keeping well & you,. Had a lovely sleep last night. Got to go get injection this morning (hormones) i just wish I could stop having it, but then the C starts spreading quicker some choice. Hope everything is OK with everyone on here. Best wishes.

Hi criss no children of my own wife was widow husband killed factory accident at 28 three boys youngest son killed at 22 car accident his wife died 28 throat cancer and left one daughter,, a daughter now married +two daughters,. Other step son got married two boys, both married three boys each, so I'm a great great grandad six times gets a bit confusing sometimes. When younger i would never have believed what could happen in future. I always try to look on the bright side.a lot of friends don't believe I'm ill. But I'm not bothered.

Hi everyone,

Hope all is good with you all. Thanks for tagging me in Marlyn....I hope ive made her feel a bit more positive about things.

Bump is all good. Right little wriggler. Its exactly 3 months today til my due date. Had a 4D scan the other week but he was hiding behind his arms so couldnt get any pics. He's definitely a boy though as he wasnt shy about showing that part off lol. So we're going for a rescan on the 1st of June. Hopefully he'll be more cooperative. 

Unfortunately though ive been suffering with my stomach badly over the past few weeks. The urge to go to toilet comes on so suddenly I had to jump off the bus on the way to work to run into a public toilet and its very watery (sorry if anyones eating). Could be pregnancy related but my midwife didnt seem to think it was as pregnancy usually causes constipation. Theres no infection as I done test for that so got to do another test to rule out any rectal or bowel cancers now. Doctor is just being cautious due to the cancer ive just had so better to be safe than sorry. Im sure its nothing though....probably the baby using my bowel as a football or something.

Well I hope youve all had a good start to the week so far. Take care ladies xx

Ah so pleased you got a good nights sleep.... everything always seems a little less dark if we have slept well.... long may it last. 

My cousin wears a medi bracelet ... I never understood how important it was till your comments. 

Yes we do what we have to don’t we. I was well on no meds then 1.5 yrs ago .. cancer so letrozole, hypertension so amlodipine, the letrozole can cause osteoporosis so advised to take calcium. I’ve gone from the odd paracetamol to 3 tablets a day. Strange ol life ain’t it.

all the best to you nd yours too Billy.

Hi Sandra I hope you're cousin is on calcium tablets my first specialist didn't tell me about it, he retired 2 nd specialist told me that I should have been on them from the start it stops osteoporosis, I was lucky nothing broke in my line of work. Do you take addcal +D. Best wishes.
