My friend who we were in Cornwall with texted me yesterday to say her daughter has shingles! Fortunately that was 3 wks ago and she had asked her GP about me who had said all should be fine..... The nurse on the phone from the hosp did ask me if I'd had a fever.....nope. I am tired though. I do keep asking the oncologists if it's ok to run, cycle etc and they keep saying yes.......there are injections of something to boost your WBC count so I guess I May get them if all is not good tomorrow.
lotte I have several friends with rats and they say they make really good kids pets. They only live 2-3 yrs and yes like to be kept in pairs. The other good kids pet are guinea pigs, they live a bit longer, require a bit more space.
Just had a call from the hosp, my neutrophil count (thr white blood cells that fight infection) is too low. It's 0.8 and has to be at least 1.5 before they will do chemo. Bloods were taken on Fri so now I have to go in early tomorrow to have them repeated to see if it has come up again over the wk end. I really hope it has! Or else I can't have my chemo tomorrow and this whole thing will drag on even longer..........so anyone got any tips to increase your neutrophil count overnight??
Sonya that sounds hideous! You sound very with it to have gone through all that. I. Know you kept saying you felt huge but you never looked it in your pics! He really was a whopper.
has anyone bought clothes from joe browns? I was flicking thru their catalogue that came with the Sunday paper and bought it looked nice and reasonably priced, and I do have some b day money to spend...also need winter boots though.
friend just texted to say her daughter has shingles. She's only 4, I had no idea they could get it so young. She was concerned about me and my immune system but we saw them 3 wks ago so I'm not worried and her GP wasn't worried.
i have just created a conundrum for me that I need an answer to though. I am booked to have a flu jab in a couple of wks. Eric is eligible for 1 as now they are doing 2, 3 and 4 yr olds. But they give them a live, intranasal vaccine. The NHS website says kids in contact with a severely immunocompromised person shouldn't have the intranasal vaccine, but I don't know if I'm classed as severely immunocompromised or not. Also as I know I am immunocompromised should hubby and Matilda have one too to help protect me? I don't expect any of you to answer this!
I used to do that journey - well Glasgow to Bristol, as a student. It was awful, but cheap! The bus was freezing.......and they would stop at services to give the drivers a break in the middle of the night when the services were closed. It also took 10 hours!! In a car it takes about 6........but yes, cheap and cheerful!!
Is she still here TT? What did she think of Ilford?
Christmas shopping in London.........my idea of hell. That's why god invented Amazon. But accommodation is always fairly cheap chez Caro - you just have to pay me in wine and chocolate.
I really enjoyed parkrun today, mostly because I went to a new one and was completely anonymous. If I was prepared to run 20 miles home again (or cycle for that matter) there are probably at least 20 or 30 I could get to......however I think I know my limitations! (unlike Lotte ) I am going to do practice runs cycling to 2 others though (with a map!) partly to expand my cycling routes but also so I can get to them on a Sat morning.
Am drinking wine. 1 sip goes to my head these days.
