Don't make me cry.... I'll be having my third chemo today, and the weekend after that I feel worst.
So... I had to cancel Jamvention... I'm just too sick. I stay very positive about all this treatment by saying it's necessary and I have to go through, but canceling Jamvention really makes me sad.... Sad
I looked forward very much to meet all my facepaintfriends and have a rocking facepaint weekend!
Make lots of fun for all those who will be attending Jamvention and take pictures pleaseeeee!!!

Lizzie, I am SO sorry that you had to cancel Jamvention. Just remember that the time will come - and soon - when this is all behind you, and you can jam with your friends as much as you like. Hold on to that. And hey...when your treatment's over, hop across that canal that separates us and jam with me! I have a spare room and I'll cook all your favourite things. You wouldn't be the first fantastic Dutch woman to share my home for a while. Smile

Thinking of you lots today. Hope the chemo doesn't affect you as badly this time. xxx

Thanks for being so sweet! I really looked forward to the Jamvention.
I'm very dedicated to my family and this should have been the first time I would spend a whole weekend with just me-time!!
Well, I'm ok now. I know this has to be done!

my dear lizzie - you are always in my thoughts!!!! I, myself have been down and out since Saturday night with a bowel obstruction. (I get them a couple of times a year) I should have gone to the hospital but I toughed it out at home...probably not the smartest thing to do.

You are such a strong woman and you probably don't realize how much you encourage other people every day. Not just here on the forum, but I imagine those around you on a daily basis.

Warm hugs go out to you my dear!

Oh no, Rhonda - are you OK now? If it's not too personal a question (just ignore if it is!) what causes the obstruction episodes? I ask because my father and aunt have Crohn's Disease and my partner has Ulcerative Colitis, so bowel problems sort of run in my family.

Whatever's causing it, hope it's treated now and that you're feeling much better. Your posts often make me smile or laugh, too - you've got such a bright, funny way of writing!

Lizzie, Rhonda's right. You do encourage people and make them feel brighter. Smile

don't worry too much about the jamvention and the returning customers Lizzie. Good quality will always be popular again, and next jamvention will be here sooner then you think.
Big hugs, and I really hope things pick up quickly for you!

Ewwwww,Kammy.... potty talk...haha!

Chronic diverticulitis (plus, there is literally not one square inch in my colon that doesn't have diverticulum on it), a good portion of my colon was removed after it perforated and I have chronic Irritable Bowel Syndrome as well. Basically, almost anything I put in my mouth (except my foot, of course) causes problems.

Thanks mamakatrien and Vivi, for your encouraging words! I love you

Oww, Rhonda. That's not good... I'm feeling bad for not being able to eat for a few days, and you've got problems with it, every day?!
Pffffff.... Sending a really, really big hug your way!!

Oh Rhonda, you poor thing. That sounds like a lot to deal with, and I wish you didn't have to go through it. I admire your general demeanour and positivity even more, now. Constant pain and discomfort isn't easy to live with. I love you

Sorry for the "potty talk", everyone! Laughing I'm so used to it around here because it's just THERE, in my family. Wink

Just wanted to drop a line and let you know you are in my thoughts Lizzie.

Rhonda I feel for you too. My boyfriend has diverticulitis. It is no fun.

Sending love to all.

Anxious to see your little wuppies around here. Wink And more of those beautiful flowers you've been doing on your arm!
Take care!

Thanks, today I'll go for round four!!
Countdown started!!

Yesterday I got he results from my MRI scan. Chemo is beating the tumor up, it shrinked to half and they can hardly see any activity any more!
So, that's great news!

Very disturbing was the message the 'spot' in my right breast had reacted too, and fallen apart to five very tiny, little spots.
Erhm.... Right breast spot?!?! No one ever told us they found something on the right side too! Doctor told us immediately they THINK it isn't bad, so I don't have to worry. I'll have an extra echo next week thursday and next week friday we'll get the results from our surgeon. Of course we are upset about this and have a serious talk about it, because this means serious stuff to me for surgery! If there's seen something on the first MRI (it was a different doctor who told us those results, from the doctor yesterday, she pressumed we knew about my right breast) I want to have both my breast removed.
I'll get one good chance for complete recovery and I'm gonna take that to the max!!
I don't want to have to go back in four years or so, because 'sorry, it wasn't bad, but now it is! '
No! Way!

So glad that nasty old tumor is breaking up! But Oh my!! What a Very unpleasant surprise to hear from that different doctor about your right breast! Would have been much better to hear from the start so you wouldn't have to be dealing with this in stages, and getting another blow. Wish they’d hurry up with that nano technology so they could just target the cancer cells and not be bombarding you with all these chemicals that make life so hard for days/weeks on end after each treatment.

Know that you are being thought of by your friends all over the world! And please, take care and be kind to yourself.
Hugs!

lizzie.... I am thrilled that your treatment is working!

Suspicious about the lack of communication regarding the right breast, though.

Tons of love still coming your way, girl!!! I love you

Another update: we asked a print from my medical file and had some explanation!
Hope I can explain it in english!
First time they couldn't see it in the right breast, but that time the glandtissue coloured up and may have masked the colouring of this spots.
The colouring now is type 2 and 3, number 3 is almost for sure bad luck.
So again lots of worries....
