Pebbles and Wised- Happy day!!!! Congrats on finishing. I am so happy for you guys. Definitely doing a happy dance for you. Sending good vibes for continued healing. Wised, I hope the hematoma dissipates soon.
Newhomes01, Welcome to the thread, I wish you the best for your start of treatments on monday. I was super nervous for the first treatment but the appointments go pretty quickly after that first set up. You will rock this, and we are here for you. I like new thinking from egregious "Lube- Hydrate- Vent- Keep going"!
Spoonie, Dang it I am so sorry you had a fall. That sounds frustrating after you had brought it up to management and they didn't d anything. I guess its time to get out the middle fingers again!!! I am glad to hear the therapy is helping with the fibrosis and lymphedema, you deserve some relief for sure. Gentle hugs and I hope the stiffness from the fall resolves quickly.
Purplecat, I am glad you were able to find your friend and give her some support. I am sure that made a difference for her. That really is crazy on the timing, you were meant to be there for her.
Ghostie, 6 more!!! That's awesome, and man thats a long drive. Have fun with your shopping trip today.
LPLlibrarygirl, nice to meet you :) I hate that you are dealing with shoulder issues on top of everything else. Super cool that your friends meet up for a walk, that is a great idea! I feel you on wanting your old life back, I think I have said that more in the last couple weeks. I don't want to find a "new normal" but we will get there and this part of our process will be in the past. I see we share an ILC diagnosis. My tumor was measured differently on all three of my imaging, at first it was 2cm, but after some diligence from the tumor board they decided it was 4.7 prior to surgery and needed a MX. They did a good job, it turned out to be 4.8, that ILC is a sneaky little monster. I am sending you good vibes and healing prayers, I hope you get good news with your genetic testing.
Joy- Thinking of you as you start your treatments today, let us know how it went.
Pebbles, The TV in the waiting room of my center is forever on Hallmark channel, drives me crazy.
Hope everyone has a great day!
