Hi Ladies, it has been one week since my first Chemo - I have come through pretty well all things considered.  The only thing I seem to suffer is a constant big fat belly-ache.  I have been fairly well otherwise.  Got some stitches out yesterday (a walk in the park!).  Looking forward to the Easter break - YAY! no doctors, treatment or other stuff - I actually had to buy a diary, my husband and I were getting snowed under with all the appointments of late.  The emotions are still up and down as you know, but I thought it was really funny the other day an 'electricity salesman' came to the door - he was SO persistant and wouldn't go away....I shocked mysef, I told him to go away (not that politely!) and slammed the door in his face.  My husband came out and said "Did you just do what I think you did?" I smiled rather gingerley and said "Yep".  He chuckled and said "I thought so"  I looked at him with a very cheeky grin and said "Gee it felt good!"  I hope that dosen't make me too naughty, but I find I am 'suffering fools lightly'.  I suppose there are one or two or you out there that maybe able to relate? Cheers Josie

    Enjoy the Easter break and try to take your mind off all things medical.

    H?????oping your stomach settles down. When I had chemo I found that ginger tablets helped to settle me.

    Best wishes, Deb

    Woohoo good for you JJoy. There is enough suffering without having to put up with fools. I can feel your rush of energy as you told him where to go.

    All the best.

    Thanks Maria - oh! It was an 'awesome' energy rush!  I have found lately that there are three sorts of people in my life - 1/ the ones that 'don't want to know', 2/ those that don't care and 3/ the ones that are totally supportive.  I am finding it really easy to pick out who my true friends are now - not a bad thing really. x x x Cheers Josie
