Merry Merry Christmas🎄 from down under,also update from Lorraine

Hi Lovely ladies Merry Christmas, my home page is playing up and I don't get all the post sent so I do hope you see this one, arfter reading the news about Suzanne I've find it a hard few days she was such a lovely soul.

I give you a short update on how I'm going ,I've been off all treatment now for near 5 months and have good days and bad ,my palliative care team and my wonderful GP are helping with pain control ,I can now feel the tumors and this makes it more real.

I wonted to see Christmas with my family and will I'll dose myself up with pain killers on the big day put a big 😀😁smile on my face to make it a fun day for as all.

I hope the same goes for you ,not the pain killers just a great fun day for you and your family ..Take care my friends Lorraine xx

The news of Suzanne made me cry. It is SO nice to hear from you and I was glad to read you do have your good days too...no treatment at all must feel so strange although I imagine it can feel good not to have all that in your system. I do hope you are able to enjoy your Christmas and I wish you a happy one with warmth and love all around. It does sound like it will be that way for you and as we are all told, make those memories.

With love, Judy (I don't know how to make those emojis but hears would be here!) oxox

Reply

HI Judy, Yes Suzanne made me cry as the other ladies, I don't post as much I find it hard to sit for too long,it is strange to be off all treatment ,not too bad if I can keep my pain down I can now feel a couple of tumors and that does upset me some.

Yes looking so forwards to the big day.

I'll send you some hearts my husband showed me I'm not very savoy on the computer.

Merry Christmas Love Lorraine 💙💙💙

Hi Jane , Thank you I will make sure that I control the pain so I can enjoy the day, and as for my being under maybe your on top.

Have an enjoyable Christmas, Lorraine. I can imagine feeling tumours is quite an eerie experience. Crossing fingers that your pain control works as advertised though and you won't think about the disease for the rest of this year.

What may come may come. Although.. that's easy to say, when it axtually really scares me just to think that you are off treatment; I want to just hug you and will the tumours to shrink somehow, completely selfishly, so we get to enjoy your warm and thoughtful company for many many moons to come.

So, Lorraine: Make it so!

Hugs to down under and a nice cozy Xmas to you and yours. Maus 🎄 🤗

Thank you, Lorraine, for the good wishes - and the same back to you. It's good to hear from you again and have an update. I'm so sorry about the pain but do hope you can have a very happy Christmas. Thinking about Suzanne, too, and feeling sad for her family - and all the other friends we have lost this year. I suppose the best thing we can do is make sure we lead as best a life we can, as they would like to have still been doing.

Love and a big hug, Solange. 😊💐
