And thanks for being so honest with us.
I'm glad we were all together on the chat tonight - nice gathering - great to check in.
I'm still putting away the holiday decor so that is on my agenda tonight!
Wishing you all a wonderful evening and will check in throughout the week.
There is a webinar tomorrow for those that are around during the day... and if you miss it, I believe it is being recorded and will be posted at some point.
Many of the cancer centres are offering medical cannabis sessions - check in with your centre if this is of interest to you.
Good night all
hello and welcome @Vi4, @jen_k, @Soledad if you are around to join us then right here!
Will try and join the chat next Tues.
Bell Lets Talk for Mental Health is tomorrow (and for the month of January)
Hoping everyone has access to the resources they need and please do reach out if needed. There are so many supports around and it is finding out what works for you.
Lots of self care can be a good thing. A warm bath and a blanket were the key to getting through today.
Gosh the temps were not so nice.
Lots of water - seems to help with the fatigue and getting the drugs through and out of the system
I found just drinking soup broth helped too! Hope you have meds to manage the nausea and wishing you a good week of recovery
We are thinking of you tonight @jsullivan33 - sending warm wishes your way
Hi @Flowergirl I have all my messages set up for Bell let’s talk tomorrow. It’s a great opportunity to generate awareness and Bell donates 5cents for each tweet.
I'm heading back under the blankets
take good care this week!
Quick update - I had my 3-month post treatment follow-up and my CA125 is 15! Praise God. CT Scan showed stable disease - no changes since the end of chemo. I'll take it, thank you very much.
I am on Lynparza, and though the side affects are many, I can really live with it, and very well too. Still recovering my energy.
We were talking about the funding for Lynparza. It is covered under my husband's benefit plan and he retires in 3 years. My GyneOnc said, "What are your plans for drug coverage in three years?" I laughed. Isn't that a wonderful perspective ladies? How am I going to pay for my meds in 3 years? Who would have thought that that long range perspective would have been available to me 5 years ago (yes, 5 years ago!!!!).
There is such hope for all of us.
Good night, sleep tight, don't let the frost bite!
And perhaps @Marilyn can assist you.
I have done a few so you are welcome to private message me and perhaps I can provide some assistance.
It’s the good news stories that give us all hope. Keep well and keep cozy too. 🦋
