About Me: Female, 51, France, member since May 2009
I have 2 wonderful children. Etienne who is 9 soon to be 10 in Nov. and my eldest who will be 31 in Nov. Jonathan is a Dr of Chemistry, and works for a big Pharma. He comes in useful when I want to know anything about drugs. My Husband works at restoring WW2 militar
[More]y vehicles in Avignon, and he is my rock and carer. I am a keen Mountain bike racer, well I was until this latest relapse, but I'll be back on it again soon. I have lived here in the South of France for nearly 10 years now, it's been hard working through the French red tape, but I managed it. Healthcare system is brilliant - just wish I could find a good dentist. DX with 14 years ago.
"Yo Alex, I just saw this, so sorry about your cancer progressing, but your a fighter though, don't give in eh? a Hospice is not a good thought, and I don't blame you for not going into one, do your best, your still able to ride, and tha..."
"What has happened to this website? I can't find anything anymore. Where have the health pages gone? oh well here goes nothing. Anyway my question is this, does anyone else have a Service Dog? and how do you manage to go into different..."
Just a quick note to say hi! I am starting to eat again. There is no fun in it just work. There is nothing at all I enjoy eating or drinking. Nothing I want. Everything tastes bad and feels bad so I just have to do it. I am. I am trying to get my whole body working again. They have me down as failure to thrive. Things I used to take for granted are all work. I only have two more chemos. O.N. must be hard. I have not had it yet, although I have permanent double vision. How are the children, the animals?
Just a quick note to say hi! Bonjour. How are you. I am having such a good day I could spit. I miss the tour though. I love the French countryside in HD. I hope you are hanging in there. I gave Polly a bath and she went with me to the doctor. She is such a good girl. I only had one bad day of chemo so far. I am eating again and life is good.
Just a quick note to say hi! Having some good days. Enjoying the tour on TV. I am riding and working with the dogs and doing things with friends. I have decided I have to ignore the Cancer Clinic and call the shots. I am doing the chemo but that is it. I want whatever life I have to be enjoyable. A shorter good life is better than letting them do what they plan which is endless painful surgeries and treatment which may or may not extend my life but will leave me in a lot of pain and emotionally damaged. They are into cutting and poisoning. If it were just a little and I would be cured that would be one thing. I miss you and look at France and wish I were there.
