  • @Daisy Hi Daisy Lovely to hear from you. I think that the original post by Community Admin does specifically identify the shielding scheme in England and also refers to the NHS in England. I live in Jersey and our rules are different too but I st…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou Wow, is it really so long since lockdown started. I have been shocked to see how much money we have saved through not going out for meals, to the pub, lunch or shopping trips. The truth is, we have not been too ba…
  • Good afternoon everyone Wow, this is an amazing thread and it is wonderful to see all your lovely photographs. I'm afraid I don't know much about plants and flowers but I am learning fast. It is wonderful to see how people's gardens help to get us t…
  • @Chilali1531 Hi Ali I was sorry to read about the postponement of your bone marrow transplant. It must be very difficult for you and for your brother. Let us hope it will not be long before the lockdown is lifted and you are able to meet up and get…
  • Good afternoon @Jimjam I am sorry to hear that you have been in such a dark place, but it is not at all surprising with everything that you have had to contend with. It must have been incredibly disappointing to have your operation cancelled and to…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou I have been watching Harry's Heroes too. The tough guy Vinnie Jones became an actor after retiring from football. He played villains in 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,' 'Gone in 60 Seconds' and 'Snatch' amongst others. H…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou None of our neighbours come out to clap for key workers. They are a pretty miserable lot to be honest, but they don’t bother us either so that’s OK. Our medical people are great. I have had phone calls from several different H…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good evening Lou What a great song it was too. I have just rerun it on YouTube. I remember that summer of 1976 for a different reason. It was so hot that our reservoirs started to run dry and we were on severe water rations. We had t…
  • @Sunshinedaff Oh Lou, I can almost smell those hot cross buns. 😛 I'm afraid I did not marry Mary for her cooking and we are lucky in some ways as a local hotel group are cooking lovely dinners, freezing them and delivering too. Most of the dinners…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou My second home is shut for the duration, it is called the Adelphi Pub. Haha, only joking 🤥 Rob xx
  • @sarahscar Hi Sarah I am sorry to hear your story. You have been through a lot and with chemo and radiotherapy to come, it is not surprising that you are feeling anxious. I am pleased that you have found us and I am sure that members of our commun…
  • @Me62 Good evening I am so sorry to read your story and I really feel for both of you. It seems to me that you have far too much to cope with on your own and you really need support. As Lou has said, MacMillan Cancer Support may be able to provide…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Great to hear that you went to see Les Miserables. Fantastic. I don't know Hamilton, but I will now try and see if I can find it on YouTube. So sorry to hear about your photos and memorabilia. I do hope you are able to salvage most…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Wow, guess I should have known that. One year already! Thank you for reminding us. I even forgot my own birthday this year - deliberately perhaps.🤣 I absolutely agree that the anniversary is to be celebrated. it has been a pleasure…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Yes, passing the cognitive and memory tests was a relief though I did swot up before I went. The doctor who referred me had asked me the day, date and month so I made sure that I knew them before the test in case they came up again.…
  • Hi @kar399 Lovely to hear from you though I am sorry to hear about your family cancer history and your own diagnosis. You must have heard a lot of well meaning but misguided comments over the years. I absolutely agree with your comments about 'fig…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin Yes, it would be great to let them know how valuable their podcasts are. I will be listening to episode 2 soon. I am perfectly happy for you to show my screen name if you wish. I love this community and anything which might h…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin and thanks for your kind comments. I have listened to episode 1 of ‘Cancer and You’ and found the observations of Bruce, Sarah and Rod who talked about their cancer lessons very interesting. They all made points which struck a…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin I have just read your article ‘7 things to remember’. Sorry to be so slow getting there, it was most interesting and I nodded and smiled to myself at several of the points you made. I have an aggressive and inoperable prostate…
  • @KarinSieger Hi Karin My good friend Ron wrote a lovely poem called “Best of Friends”. I posted it on this site a few months ago and I reproduce it here with a few minor changes to fit the Community as I see it. LBWC BEST OF FRIENDS This g…
  • @BairdCarrbridge Hi and thanks for posting. I am sorry to hear of your wife’s bowel cancer and I hope that she continues to cope with the chemo without too many side effects and that it is effective in clearing her cancer, I am sure that there wil…
  • @Shands Hi Sue I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis and it would be good to know that the CT scan will show that you are now cancer free following surgery. Of course, you still have chemo, radiotherapy and hormone treatment to come and I hope that…
  • Hi readers I hope you do not mind my observing that men undergoing hormone treatment for prostate cancer DO go through hot flushes and various other unpleasant and uncomfortable side effects too. This is often not recognised, not least by other men …
  • @Mark Hi Mark Thank you for posting and telling us of your experience of prostate cancer surgery and its subsequent effects. As you will recall from our posts of 21st and 23rd April respectively, we have both endured the frustration of being told …
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb Well, the cricket turned on its head. The most extraordinary day I have ever seen. Even more so than the World Cup final. Same hero too. Ben Stokes. That guy must be Superman. Great evening at the Portuguese Fair last night. …
  • Hi Lou That is so beautifully expressed and I don’t think there is anything worthwhile I can add to it. I love being part of this community and meeting all of you amazing people and hearing your stories. As Lou said, you are not alone, we will alwa…
  • @Maggymay @Davidvalletta Hi Maggymay, What a lovely positive and kind message and I am sure that David and Janet will draw real encouragement from it, It is great to know that you have worked on your mental well being as well as your physical e…
  • @Davidvalletta Hi David I am sorry to hear of your wife's diagnosis - it is not surprising that you are both feeling anxious. It is at least good to know that your wife will be having surgery next week as the waiting is often the worst part. I th…
