  • 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.

Gemma Update

Just a quick note to update you all on Gemma’s progress.  She is still struggling a lot with the pain and uncomfortableness and has been pretty lethargic all week but is definitely on the improve.  All systems are “go” if you know what I mean from the worries the vets had about paralysis of bladder and bowel.  Montie has finally got used to this ‘strange -looking’ cat with cone collar, shaved bum and no tail, after hissing at Gemma for first half of the week.  We are keeping them seperate just to be on the safe side – we dont want Gemma to be too disturbed when she is still not feeling 100%.  She is still sleeping a lot and today we have let her sleep without her collar on to get a good rest.  She will get her stitches out towards the end of this week,  but we will keep her as an inside cat until she has fully recovered.  She is usually a cat that prefers to spend the day outside if we are not home.

I have lots more to tell you about what is going on with me but no time left in my weekend to write a long blogpost so hopefully that will get done on Tuesday.
