Good afternoon ladies
I thought I would pop in with my latest health news.
Yesterday I had an appointment with the oncologist at Glan Clwyd who
informed me that she was going to put me on Hormone Therapy & not Chemotherapy. This is in the form of one tablet a day along with one
injection a month. The injection is to help stop the bones from
I will be on the tablets - I am not sure of the injection - permanently. So no chemo therefore no hair loss no need for wigs.
She showed me the bone scans & it also showed a lot of wear &
tear on my shoulder & knee joints - to be expected at my age I
suppose. But the cancer cells were all in my spine & quite a lot of
them too although each one smallish.
Bob & I are happier with this outcome & feel that the year is
ending on a slightly better note than was originally thought. But the disease is there & we will beat it or at least control it for the best results for my well being.
The drug even so, will leave me rather fatigued & tired. Therefore I am going to leave you all to continue looking after your individual clubs - deciding on what you will do each night. Where possible I will attend to join in what you have arranged.
In the meantime - in the background - I will continue to try & find you another workshop day. I still haven't heard back from Wendy of Card-io Stamps but will try her again after Christmas. Also if I get any ideas I will put them forward & see if there is anyone willing to take them on for an evening.
That is me for today. I still have some photos to load up so I promise I will get that up to date over the weekend.
'Bye for now.
