  • All about Gertrude

    Gertrude is the name we decided to call my cancerous breast hence the title of this blog. Although I had to keep my breast through chemo and radiation due to the nature of IBC - once it 'blew up' it no longer looked like my breast and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. Calling it Gertrude was a way of seperating it from myself. This main page is where I write about the general goings on that relate to Gertrude, there is another page that are more a diary of treatments etc This blog is a public blog so although I am being very honest about my battle with Gertrude I have "changed names to protect the innocent" - because everyone can see it if you write comments on the blog pages please use the same abbreviations for other family member or friends that I do. Please feel free to ask questions if you want clarification because then other people who might have been wondering the same thing can read your question and our answers.
  • Abbreviations

    OH- Other Half (Hubby), OD- Oldest Daughter, MD- Middle Daugher, YD- Youngest Daughter, SB- soulja boi MD's fiance in the army (now ex fiance), OD's R OD's partner, BS- Breast surgeon whose initials just happen to be BS as well, BC- our GP (family doctor), Dr H- my medical oncologist, all other friends family etc will be referred to as initials etc

Christmas trees

Well, Christmas is definitely here – yesterday OH and YD went out and got the Christmas tree. YD was very adamant that we had a real christmas tree (even though OH and I were thinking of getting a fake one this year just for convenience with everything else going on) as she was having a fake one at her house. I am sitting beside the decorated tree as I write this blog post. After we had decorated the tree yesterday afternoon we went out for dinner for OH’s birthday. It’s not his official birthday til Wednesday but it just fit in easier to have the family dinner on Sunday while YD was with us and OD wasn’t working. I am taking him to see the latest James Bond film on Wednesday evening to celebrate his actual birthday.
We have got one of those family calendars where every one has a seperate column to write their schedule in. December’s page has to be the most filled in. We have all got so much on. And somewhere in there I have to fit in Chemo LOL!!
Don’t worry people I am making sure I dont over do it. Anyway I’ve got my dentist appointment later this morning so I better go and eat some breakfast because I probably won’t be able to eat much for a while afterwards
Hope all you guys are enjoying your holiday preparations
