I have had a good last few days, I didn’t wear my compression sleeve yesterday (and didn’t get an achy arm) even though I had a busy day – In the morning I went to a craft market with MD, then picked up YD and OH and went out to meet my sis H and her partner M, who are over from Australia, for lunch. We had a very leisurely lunch and catch up (3 hours long).
OD and her man R also came. This was the first time that R had met MD and YD and the longest he had spent with OH and I, as when OD first started going out with him 3 months ago, I said I didn’t want to meet him until I had my replacement teeth (after losing my top partial plate at the hospital). The funny thing was, the first time he did meet me about 3 weeks ago, I had my new teeth in but not Cushla so I was lopsided but given that he already knew the circumstances I didn’t feel too self-conscious.
Next week I am quite booked up with Gertrude-related appointments. Tuesday morning I have an appointment with the oncologist to OK my last 4 herceptin treatments (that will take me to the middle of August). Tuesday afternoon I have the fitting for my mastectomy bras and getting my silicon prosthesis. I think I will still wear Cushla (my post- surgery soft cushion wadding one) around the house some days or like today just go one-boobed.
Thursday I have my Pink Pilates in the morning and an post-op follow-up appointment with the breast surgeon’s nurse in the afternoon.
Friday I have my herceptin.
Which brings me to ‘Twitter’ – I am not logging on and updating the blog everyday but you will notice on the right-hand side there is a box titled Twitter – for those for you who don’t know this is an internet application that allows you to miniblog or message. I can ‘tweet’ from my internet home page or from my phone and it will show up in this box. So if I havent written an actual blog post for a while the last 8 twitter updates will be in that box. I am hoping I will be able to ‘Tweet’ messages from my phone while I am on holiday in Australia (only two weeks to go -Yahoooo!!!!) as my phone is on global roaming.
So if you are wanting to know what’s happening keep an eye on that ‘twitter box’ too, as well as on the main blog posts. If you are a twitterer yourself feel free to follow me.
In my next blog post I will show you the before and after shots of my hair – had my first haircut last Tuesday – and also show you what my new prosthesis looks like
