Over did things AGAIN!

I over did things yesterday and am paying for it today. Either that or I am fighting off a bug. I know that my allegies are really bad at the moment, my nose is on fire and bleeds alot, my eyes feel like they are on fire too. Mind you, it did us good to get out in the pouring rain with the dogs this afternoon. We went to "Nains River" which is really Erddig Park. The photo above is of Joe venturing down into what is called "the Cup and Saucer" an amazing invention which powered the water from the river to the big hall! Sometimes you can hear the mechanics and feel the vibatrion on the ground.

The above pictures are not in order I am afraid and I can't quite master the way to shuffle them around! So the story begins from the bottom up. The dogs had been wanting to swim but not quite wanting to jump in so I said to the boys, "we need a stick to throw in" at which point, Jason produced the rather large "stick" above. The dogs loved it as you can see, Poppy and Pickles are having a great time attacking.

Jason threw the "stick" in the river but Harry decided to retrieve it to use again much to the dogs delight! Poppy especially liked the "stick". Harry throws the stick in the river with a big splash and I like this photo because you can see the impact of the splash! Then the dogs watch sadly as the stick is taken by the river.
We had a nice time but I came home exhausted. I spent 2 1/2 hours in bed and had to haul myself out of bed for tea.
My gums hurt and so do my teeth. I don't know if it is an infection but I am taking the necessary precautions but I did have a dream last night about losing a tooth. I also dreamt that my nasty neighbour was pregnant with twins and had to move away to a bigger house!! Funny dreams!
I had a lovely long chat with my friend who is going through the same thing! We share the same surgeons, oncologist and care centre. She has had two doses of FEC to date and is coping well. She has the third dose when I see the dreaded oncologist to fight the fact that I do not want to be involved in the herceptin trial - I want 12 months of herceptin NOT 6!!!!!!


  1. Hi Sara
    When I was on chemo, my gums and the insides of my teeth hurt. I also had a lot of bloody noses (never had them before chemo). As for the shortened Herceptin trial, they can't make you do something you don't want.

  2. Just do what you think is best for yourself - follow your instincts. Thanks for sharing the photos :-)
