So sorry not to have been around. I hope you are all as well as possible.
Computer is playing up again so it looks like I'll have to buy a new one when I can get out and about.
Its my next chemo on Friday but I'm not sure if it will be done or not as my skin is still peeling from the last lot...just like too much sun its sore and in the daftest places.Hair is thinning but shouldn't fall out althoigh I would prefer it did instead of all these bits on my pillow and down my back all the time.
Hands are very swollen and red so I've forced my rings off but my wedding band will have to stay as there isn't a chance it would ever come off.
I'm on my neirbours computer at the moment as I'm staying home in mt dressing gown due to the fact my underwear is causing the skin to be worse.
Stay as warm as you can and take care. I'm thinking of you. May

    Nice to see you May! hope things start to improve for you soon. Have you thought about getting a tablet instead of a new laptop, I have both and find I am choosing to use the tablet more these days it is just so much more comfortable to use and very good for using in bed. Can be a lot cheaper to buy too I bought mine from the TV and cost @£100 I dont need a lot of storage now so if my laptop broke I would just carry on with the tablet. Anyway it is good to see you again and please try to keep warm as it is so cold out, I have hibernated for weeks now but am having a day in sunny Eastbourne today just to see if my little part of the world is still here. Take care.

    Hello May, good to see you, I was wondering how you were.

    Computers are great when they're working correctly but so frustrating when they don't :roll: Good on your neighbour, I have a lovely picture of you in my mind sitting typing in your dressing gown with a cuppa at the side :D:D

    Good luck with the chemo, I hope they can give it you so you can get this thing behind you.

    Luv,
    Love, Legs x
