Another Birthday

Juleswhee profile image

Good morning lovely ladies , today is my 63 rd birthday and I am so happy to have made it this far .I haven’t posted for a while but I have quietly been getting on with my second line ( Carbo/Caelyx) with mixed results and just before Christmas started on Niraparib .My lovely Hubby has taken me away for a couple of nights despite him having real flu ( yes I will give him that ) .This view is from my hotel window just now , how calming is that ?.Have the best day that you can all have , I will be heading down to the spa for relaxation ( probably on my own ) .Love to you all Julia xx

Happy birthday lovely, what a stunning view. I hope the niraparib does its job for you and that hubby recovers speedily. Enjoy your birthday and have a lovely break away in a lovely setting. Big birthday 🤗 ❤️Xx Jane

Happy Birthday 🥳

Beautiful view, I just love being by the coast, definitely restores my wellbeing. We’ve just had a few days in Dorset walking dog on the beach before my husband has a knee replacement. My turn to look after him 😱

Have a great day 💜

Love and best wishes Kim x

Hi , It is beautiful isn’t it so peaceful at this time of the year .So have taken the Zejula for three weeks now , I take it just before bed , only problem with that is you should taken them with a whole glass of water so of course I am disturbed a couple of hours later wanting a wee, however no nausea or sickness at all.I have had a couple of headaches but I think that’s because I haven’t drunk enough water and you need to.Only other thing is the dreaded constipation which I thought I had left behind with Chemo , again probably my fault as I am still eating all the Christmas naughties and not enough fruit .I hope you do well on Zejula , best of luck .xxx

Constipation is a real pain, in more ways than one 😁. Pleased you’re coping with it well, long may it last. Hope I’m as lucky

We’re in fueturventura at the moment having a sneaky few days away before oncologist next Tuesday and hopefully start of tablets.

Do you live Christchurch way? We’re just south of chichester, but often go along near mudeford xx

Happy Birthday ;-) I also had mixed results on Carb/Caelyx and am now on 100mg Niraparib reduced down from the 300mg then again from 200mg. Best of luck with the new regime xx

Belated Happy birthday. I joined the group a while ago but havn't posted yet. When I saw this photo I just had too. This is my favourite hotel in my favourite place. I have been going there for many years now. In fact I was there for my 65th in November. Relax and enjoy.

And your screen name reflects your love of the coast .Its a lovely hotel isn’t it luckily at this time of year you can get good deals so we always get the very best room , don’t think I would pay what they ask for it in summer !.I hope you are doing well on this journey we have all undertaken and remember when you feel ready to share your story or ask for help there will always be someone with a solution .Sending you the best of luck Julia xxx


Belated Birthday wishes, hope you had a lovely day. I too celebrated my birthday just before Christmas. I decided the year before each one would be celebrated from here on in. Funny how you don’t worry about the number that comes with the next one anymore, just the fact that you got there, in my case NED. Long may this celebration continue. Only 54 for me, praying for another NED year. Enjoy your celebrations 🎉🍾🥂🎂🎁 xx

Happy Birthday! I LOVE your view! I am right behind you...will be 62 this month. I had second chemo over the summer and now on Zejula. We have a few things in common.

Actually going to a Spa/hotel by the water in Old Saybrook, CT end of month.

Enjoy your Spa certainly deserve it!

Hi , Thanks for bday wishes , where is old saybrook ? Xx

Mptelesca in reply to Juleswhee

Old Saybrook is exit 66 off 95. It's right on the water. Katherine Hepburn's house is there! Close to Mohegan Sun and the Clinton Outlets. There are a couple of vineyards there...Chamards in Clinton is really worth going to. 19 wineries in CT. It's fun making the tour.

Happy birthday glad you enjoyed break just enjoy and look forward to the next one x
