I’m on a mega high today despite the fact that I don’t really know whether I’m coming or going, I’ve been to hospital again and this time I’m pleased to say I came out smiling with GOOD RESULTS, ALL CANCER CELLS GONE……..I needed to shout that bit, lol…


I don’t need another op, my remaining lymph nodes were clear and I get to keep them, okay I’m still recovering as you can imagine, still on light duties and also have my 15 days of radio therapy to get through, that should start within the next month, I am not worried about that, the way I see it thats to keep me on the right track…
…………………………………………………………………………
I’ve been to see the Oncologist and its official, I am allowed in my garden, YES!!!!!
He was pleased with my progress, said my arm movements were very good, I admitted I had done a bit of pottering already, he said that was good and he wanted me to spend time in my garden, I didn’t need telling twice, they have upped the dosage though, its now 19 days but won’t start for about 4weeks, now I have to perfect the art of breathing in and holding my breath for at least 25 seconds, more if I can manage it, still cannot do the ironing though, lol….

30 Jul, 2015

 

Thankyou all, I nearly hugged my consultant but managed to control myself in time and made do with grasping her hand, I haven't come back down to earth yet, in fact I have a mega headache but I think thats because I have been so tensed up waiting for today, nothing a good nights sleep won't cure, now I can see myself being back out in the garden properly in a few months, I'm not taking any chances though and going to be very good, the rest of the year is for pottering and deadheading...

30 Jul, 2015

2 Aug, 2015

 

So pleased for you,Lincs.....onwards and upwards now.

3 Aug, 2015

 

Thankyou ladies, I am taking the tortoise route but oh it sure feels good now I am more or less back in action, still no ironing, hoovering or carrying the shopping, I can live with that, lol....

3 Aug, 2015

 

Hip, Hip, Hurrah - what fantastic news - really cheered me up - nothing wrong with the tortoise route either, Lincslass, slow but sure, so my two elderly shelled companions tell me :) So very pleased for you and your family.

4 Aug, 2015

 

Thankyou Gee, Its a huge relief .
I have updated my blog now, the oncologist says he wants me to go in the garden, it will be good for me.

4 Aug, 2015

 

Brilliant, I can imagine an even bigger smile on your face , Lincslass, and I can imagine a lot of pottering going on in your garden now - I hope the weather stays fine for you :)

5 Aug, 2015

 

Doctors orders go in the garden......what prescription Sue!
🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 eveythings coming up roses xxx

I tried and only managed 10 seconds.....πŸ˜•

5 Aug, 2015

 

Great news Sue, just watch you don't go mad at it, little and often, works every time, Derek.

5 Aug, 2015

 

I know Pam, I actually managed 49 seconds today but crumbs it was hard, I honestly do not know how I will manage when its a case of having to do it, lets face it practising at home is completely different because we are relaxed, apparently its to make my heart shrink whilst they are zapping my chest, its surprising the things I am learning along the way, lol....

5 Aug, 2015

 

Derek its just a good feeling knowing I am allowed back out there without having someone watching my every move...

5 Aug, 2015

 

Did they give you any guidance how to do it
a bit of deep breathing and yoga type meditation may help?

6 Aug, 2015

 

Take a deep breath and hold ones nose were his words Pam, lol....I now regret never learning how to hold my breath for a long time when I used to go swimming...

6 Aug, 2015

 

Thats the best news and I am so pleased for you, but give yourself time the ironing is not important xx

6 Aug, 2015

 

The trick with breathing is to keep doing it...

6 Aug, 2015

 

Thankyou Denise, I have never needed an excuse to hide my ironing, I always tell them that they are in charge of their own, my job is the washing.

6 Aug, 2015

 

LOL, Stera that is oh so true..

6 Aug, 2015

 

So pleased with your latest news Lincs I'm with you 100% on the ironing!! keep up the good work - gently bentley :o)

6 Aug, 2015

 

Fantastic news Linc's \0/ only downside I can see ... once all the treatment is finished you won't have an excuse not to iron:- )))

9 Aug, 2015

 

Thanks Neellan and Ba, I've been back today for my scans and now have my timetable for the treatment, I start on Sept 3rd and finish on the 29th, thats completely wiped out Sept for me but heyho! its progress isn't it..I am putting the ironing on hold for the rest of the year, lol...

10 Aug, 2015

 

Very wise...

10 Aug, 2015

 

At least its before winter sets in Lincs so travelling will be easier and hopefully warm days for gentle pottering in the garden

11 Aug, 2015

 

Yes thats right Pam, we're hoping for a nice autumn and then see if we can get a few days away somewhere, we both fancy the Lake District, its always gorgeous.....
