  • Hi I do remember when I was having chemo, experiencing terrible headaches. I am sorry to hear you are suffering with them too. I did call the chemo ward (you should have a number that you can contact them), to ask if I could take anything, because…

  • , Haha! Jackie, of course Dog Dad's too! Haha, and cat dad's for that matter! Your son-in-law not a happy chappy on that trip to the beach! Although, seeing the pic it does remind me of Gavin and Stacy episode where Smithy turned up wearing one …
  • , Good evening Rob and Jackie, lovely friends, Rob, your photos of Jersey are always so beautiful, that is a lovely beach, glad your day was good too. We've only had sunshine for a few hours though, yes Jackie it is wonderful, I feel so much bet…
  • I saw this posted on the LBW FB page, I think these are great, I would find one really useful. I like the design with the little deer on, but I am also a huge fan of anything 'Cath Kidston', so a design along those lines would be fab! TIA Lou x
  • Hi and , Good to hear the Macmillan nurses were so helpful for you Roz, I had heard that they were great in helping sort through financial stuff with patients. I hope you hear back soon, also good you were allowed to do a phone consultation, …

  • Morning Jackie Oh that is lovely, I expect your nurse was really touched to hear that from you. I do think it is terrible how little thanks our medical teams do get from people. There is so much 'entitlement attitude', and little gratitude it see…
  • Hi Susan, Wonderful news for you!! Brilliant to hear this, I am very happy for you, it is very positive news. Enjoy another celebration. Lou xx
  • I wholeheartedly agree with you Jackie, I know I had such good care, consideration, and even now, after treatment is over my oncologist is wanting to ensure I continue to be in good health. After each part of my treatment I wrote a letter to each …
  • Hi Jackie, It's great you are halfway through, also good to hear you have found some food that you can eat. Haha, yes, biscuits, who doesn't love them! haha. I am ok thanks, got some pain meds to help with my neck etc, still waiting for an xray a…
  • Hi Rob, It is really encouraging news for your niece to be given a chance with the new drugs during the trial, and brilliant that they are now available to others with cancer. For yourself too, it is wonderful that the cancer you have is respond…
  • How did it go ? Were you able to consume the vast amount of liquid they ask you to? xx
  • Mine was about an hour, I had to drink loads of water before hand, always a problem for me! xx
  • Brilliant idea Susan!! Lou xx
  • Good morning Ohh, yes, it is always a bit nerve racking going for these scans and then waiting for the results too. I hope it goes well for you, stay positive, will be thinking of you. Lou xx
  • Hi The backache and nose bleeds are not unusual during chemo, I am sorry you must be in a lot of pain. I remember during my first couple of rounds I felt the same as you. I didn't realise at the time it was the chemo, and was wondering what on ear…

  • Hi Zoe, So very pleased for you your results were so positive in removing the cancer. That is such good news. I know you still have further treatment to get through, but at least you know it is going in the right direction. You can get through th…

  • Hi I know how you feel trying to keep the weight, not succeeding, and then feeling 'aaargh' about it all! I thought I would lose weight because of cancer, but it wasn't that way at all. I put it on, meds and general lack of activity, it was horrib…

  • Hi Lise, Are you still struggling after that procedure? I am really sorry to hear that. I guess it is only a few days ago, I'm not sure how long these things take. Can you take anything for the pain? I hope you have your feet up resting, watchin…
  • Hi Leah, Oooh glad you ordered one! I hope it works for you. Yes, last night was particularly hot wasn't it. I slept out of the bed all night! I just messaged you on the other chat . Lou xx
  • Hi Leah, Very glad to hear you are having some rest today, letting others do things around you. It sounds as if you have been as busy as me, and I'm not having treatment! Yesterday we cleared out the greenhouse, I wanted to clean it and then deco…
  • Good Morning Sharon , How are you doing today? The first few days after chemo can be really difficult. Are you taking the meds your oncologist gave you, if so, are they working? I hope you were able to get some rest last night, although it was ve…

  • Hi Sharon, If you are taking steroids too during chemo, which I am guessing you are, they will also affect your skin. Throughout my treatment, chemo, surgery and radiotherapy I did use a Clinique moisturiser, one of the Body Comfort range, it wa…

  • Yes, the not knowing is absolutely the hardest part, when we are in that place, that is when our fears can really cause mayhem sending us into very dark depths. It is hard to keep that at bay. I agree with you, having things planned to look forwar…
  • Hi I am sorry some days are so very hard for you, you can ALWAYS come on here and pour out whatever is on your heart and mind. At least that way you are not bottling it up or holding it all in constantly. It is very difficult around family and fri…

  • Morning Rob, So glad you had a great weekend with family and friends. One of the plus's of coming back over here is you will be able to see them more often. And more poems to write music for! That will give you a break from the packing up of the…
