  • 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.

I’m back

Well OH and I arrived home from our holiday last night – after beautiful weather in the high 20s (celsius) came back to cold windy thunder and lightning. Almost made us want to get on the plane and head straight back there. If it hadnt been for the fact that MD was leaving at the end of the week we may have stayed there longer. I am going to be quite busy for the next few days with appointments and helping MD pack so the big blow by blow travelogue blog will have to be done next week when I’ve had time to sort out photos etc. Surfice to say we had a wonderful time and I handled both the heat and level of activity very well. As a teaser I’ll show you the view that greeted us from our hotel balcony when we checked in.
