What next?

Hi lovely ladies. Sending you all a big hug.

I had a car accident yesterday morning. Sitting there in my car minding my own business and humming along to something (can’t remember what) on the radio then bang. A woman ploughed straight into me. She said her breaks just failed. I was very shaken up and my car is probably a write off. I’ve got a nice courtesy car.

Chemo today. Taxol only. I’m hoping it will be the last one for this line. I should have 6 and this is number 5 but I missed a taxol the day they did the (failed) desensitising for the carbo. They said I might not get number 6. I’ll see today. It’s my partner’s Birthday today and he will be spending it at chemo with me. 🤪

Sending you all lots of love. keep strong, keep positive and keep going ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I was in a car accident about 12 months ago nobody seriously injured but car was a write off

Aww. Sorry it happened to you too. It’s scary. Xxxxx

Very scary and they still haven’t decided who was responsible

You’re joking!!!! So it’s still ongoing? That’s not good. Mine was luckily straight forward. The lady took full responsibility. She couldn’t not really. She went straight into the back of me.

I hope yours gets sorted soon. It’s so much hassle isn’t it. Xxxxx

The car damage side of the claim was sorted out pretty quickly but neither of us was willing to accept responsibility so it’s being dealt with by solicitors. The insurance company wanted to pursue it so they can try to recover their costs I don’t have to do anything other than tell my side of the story etc

I’m ok. Was shaken up. I know just lately everything is going wrong. My partner still hasn’t got a job, my son broke his leg at Christmas. I thought this year might be different. Lol.

Never mind. I’ll keep smiling.

I hope you are doing ok. Xxxx

Hi Suzanne. I was just thinking about you and your partner a couple of days ago (I know that sounds weird, lols). How is he going? And you both? I'm sorry to hear about your yet-another-sh*t-experience. Thank goodness you're ok but please try and "process" the accident as the trauma can manifest in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways. I'm not surprised you are feeling shaken, must have been a big fright. Sending love xxx

Ahh thank you. It was a horrible experience. The police were really good. They had to use a crow bar to release my wheel as the metal from my car was digging in it. Lol.

My partner had an interview yesterday. He said it went well. I’m keeping everything crossed (even my eyes lol). He will hear if he’s got the job in a couple of weeks. I think if he gets it I will be jumping for joy. We do need something to go right.

I hope everything is ok with you and you’re doing ok.

I’m off to get a shower now so I’m clean for chemo. Lol.

Big hugs to you. Xxxxxx

I'm fine - sometimes I just think that everything comes at once and it feels like you will never get any respite!. My daughter has 3 young children all of which have tummy bugs and colds and she herself has a kidney infection and the hospital wanted to admit her the other day after giving her IV antibiotics (she has what's known as a pelvic kidney) and so is struggling and at her wits end!, luckily her husband has 4 days off now due to the shifts he works so does help but She won't let me near as she said if I get ill that will tip her over the edge! I feel so helpless. I think sometimes when things are going bad I keep smiling but that tends to look a bit like an hysterical grin! Sending you a big hug xx

It does feel like that. Just one thing after another. My son has a puncture now. I know it’s nothung big but it’s just something else to deal with.

My partner has a job now so that’s brilliant news.

I guess we just have to keep smiling.

Sending you a big hug.

I hope your Daughter gets well soon and her children. . Xxxxx

Good luck at chemo today. Are you looking forward to this being the ‘last’ one, or do you think you’d still like to have one more to make up for the one you missed?

Hi Vicki.

I’m in two minds about the chemo. I want it to be the last one but then think maybe I need one more. I don’t know my CA 125. I never ask. I see the doctor before chemo and he usually says ‘bloods are fine’ to which I respond ‘good, let’s get on with it’. Lol.

Might be different today if it is my last one. We will see.

I hope everything is ok with you. Keep smiling, keep positive. Big hugs. Xxxxxx

Sometimes, when we are in a bad place, we seem to think that nothing else can happen. Then bish-bash-bosh and more crap hits the fan. Hubby says of me, "Jupiter is in your-anus again, darling", because I attract disasters like a magnet. He's dyslexic so he's forgiven for his jumbled astrological musings even though he knows very well what he's saying. So I guess that at the moment dear Suzanne, "Your rising star is in your-anus". I hope it moves soon and you get some good luck. Your man being out of work is not good - I know as I've been in the same situation with six mouths to feed - and then your son. Crikey girl, you've had enough bad luck for a while. It's time it moved on.

Thank goodness you are not hurt and I'm sorry if I'm being a bit silly and flippant but if we didn't laugh we'd fall apart. I'm back to being my old self (almost) so take cover!!!

Big love and sending some good Karma your way.

Hi Kryssy. I think my rising star is in my anus. 😂 I hope it moves out soon. Lol.

I think laughter is the best medicine. I sometimes tell myself that laughing kills cancer cells. They don’t like it. They like stress, tears and unhappiness. I won’t give them that. Sometimes I do but not often.

I think actually that having so many other problems to deal with stops me thinking of this insidious disease at times.

The lady that hit my car works for our local hospice. I joked that I’ll probably see her again soon lol. My humour is a bit warped .

I hope you are ok and that your disaster magenet loses its pull, you take care

What do they say 'it never rains but it pours'. As long as you weren't hurt, the car is only metal but what a horrible thing to happen, bless you.

All well thanks, Suzanne. The final bit of the flu is still hanging on but I'm up and running again now. (No running). I sometimes feel a bit guilty being so well when I read all the devastation everyone else is having.

I'm sure everything will start looking up for you again now. xxx

Hi Zena.

Sorry you’ve had the flu. I hope you’ll be 100% real soon.

I’m just back from chemo. They asked me how I was after my chest infection. I said I’ve not had a chest infection. On my notes it said I went to my gp two days ago with chest infection and vaginal thrush. Erm no. That’s not me. Lol. I’ve had neither 🤔

Big hugs to you keep well xxxx

Do you know, I worry sometimes. When I went for an appointment at the hospital unrelated to cancer, when they checked my history they said I'd have cervical cancer which I hadn't unless someone forgot to tell me.

When my husband went to the doctors once, the doctor managed to jab himself with the needle instead of my husband. He really thumped it into my husbands leg and when it went in his finger instead he jumped around a bit.

We really have to be on the ball don't we?

Hugs to you and glad you're feeling a bit better. xxx

Hi Zena.

We do have to be on the ball. They do a wonderful job but we have to keep our wits about us. They make mistakes.

My consultant wants me to have the chemo I missed. Makes sense I guess.

We had the first bit of good news today. Antony has got a job. He’s been redundant since last July. I bought some champagne to celebrate. Such a relief.

I might do the lottery and if I win I would take all you ladies to the best country in the world that treats our cancer. I really couldn’t think of a better way of spending money.

I hope you have a happy weekend.

Big hugs. Xxxx

Aww thank you. It’s just a car. A broken one. Lol.

I still don’t know if I’m having one more taxol. The chemo suite have been trying to get through to my consultant. They said they would phone me tomorrow and let me know.

I hope you are doing well. Hugs. Xxxx

Thanks for the hugs Suzanne. Very welcome I hope they let you know soon about the Taxol. Even if there is one more then the end of treatment is in sight. It will soon be over, the weather will improve and life will start looking better again. please take care and keep up the laughter. Definitely the best medicine. Perhaps they should start providing helium balloons for chemo treatments. That would be hilarious. Sending big hugs xxx

Glad you’re ok Suzanne. Hope you enjoy the weekend and birthday. I’m about to find out if the trial I’m going on will randomise me weekly taxol or rucaparib. It feels like we are on a revolving door circuit sometimes, one of us goes into one and another flies out ready to have some normality. I only had 2 months of normality after last chemo so still feeling sorry for myself, but in an open to laughter and fun sort of way as I don’t want to miss out.

Take care me duck,

Hi Netti.

It is like a revolving door. I don’t look at being in remission. More just a little break before having treatment again. I think remission is something to be measured in years not months like we seem to get.

Just keep smiling and laughing. Cancer doesn’t like laughter. Xxxxxx

I couldn’t agree more Suzanne. You too xxx Netti

Glad only the car was hurt Suzanne!! Life has a way of getting you when you least expect it.

Find out your CA125 and see its trend if it is a good indicator for you. Might put your mind at ease. good luck with the end of your chemo. Its good to be over but brings a whole set of new worries. glad we all have each other.

Hi Carol.

Yes thank goodness it was just the car.

I’ve not asked my CA125. On first line , I was obsessed with it. Now I don’t know what it is. One more taxol to go. Then I think I’ll have a PET scan and then see what’s what. I get fed up of this cancer. Wish it would sod off. It’s getting on my nerves.

I hope you are doing ok Carol. Xxxx
