Take it one day at a time. Saw the physical therapist today for pre-op range of motion tests. Learned more about radiation that I didn't know and I really, really do not want to have radiation treatments after my lumpectomy. I now have some exercises to do before my surgery to increase my range of motion. Surgery is next week on the 24th.

I hope you feel better real soon. Being sick is no fun at all. I keep you in my prayers.

I wish you all the best for your operation, I had a lumpectomy & 5 underarm nodes removed on 10th July, did all the exercises I was told to do & am now on a course of chemo & radiotherapy. The radiotherapy is 15 minutes every day but completely painless etc. I just lie very still for 15 minutes & that is it. it does have a very tiring effect which builds up & I am told will take about a month to recover from at the end of the treatement. today was 14th day of 21.

Best wishes

If I don't feel better soon I'll shoot myself, just kidding, it's been a week and I feel miserable, not sick, just sick, if that makes sense, which it doesn't, lol.

I have at least 12 PM's I've read, but haven't returned, and all I'm doing is playing on KP, knittin' half a row, on an experimental piece, phone calls I desperately need to make, several to KP members, who no doubt think I've fallen off the edge of the earth, wherever that is, gotta laugh, thanks for listening,

If I don't feel better soon I'll shoot myself, jus... (show quote)

Take your time, recovery is slow!

My life right now : eat, knit, read sleep repeat!

DH is fantastic doing everything else & minding me so well.

My DH hates shopping but I have been unable to drive for last 6 months, due to illness & he has to do grocery shopping along with everything else!!

He is also brilliant!

Thanks for all your comments. I think I will frog it and put it aside meantime. I like the lace effect on the bottom so may knit it again using one colour yarn. I have never tried knitting from top downwards. I may use some of my stash for a child's jumper and give it try, although it will go to a charity shop as my grandchildren are all teenagers now. Definately always learning something new.

A great easy one is Little coffee bean free on internet.

I use it all the time now for baby cardis , varigated, plain, stripped , all different looks!

Thank you. I only ever hand knit. It keeps me awake while watching TV in the evening!

That is my excuse also!!

Another lovely item.

I think it is lovely.

I use varigated yarn a lot but usually with a top down pattern , then the sleeves match perfectly

That's why I'm checking with him on Friday, I'm told he's very conservative, and a dollar to a doughnut he's 12, lol, I'm only 67, but after sittin and knittin I can feel the difference, now mind you, I'm a very lazy person, keep laughing, but other than the mastectomy I have no physical problems, my blood pressure is perfect, it so "they" say, cholesterol well within the limits, 118, low, and I take no medicine, at all, but if I keep sitting here I'll be mistaken for my chair.

Please laugh, somebody has to,

That's why I'm checking with him on Friday, I'm to... (show quote)

Best wishes on your recovery,I had a total knee replacement at the end of April then in July a lumpectomy & lymph node removal.
I did all the exercises I was told to do & last Tuesday I did a 45 minute Aqua Aerobics class, very gently!!!! I love the aqua a class & was doing it 3 times a week till April, it had me very supple & somewhat fit I am 71 & also trying to loose weight BUT both my suppleness & fitness have gone way down (I don't walk much ) cos I have been sitting & reading & knitting so much. I have only had 1 session of chemo but next Monday I get both chemo & radiotherapy & hope I will be able for AA (aqua aerobics) on Tuesday!

I can get down on the floor but geting up is something else!!

Good luck.

When in Wicklow try the Curtain & Blind shop they do wool.

Also a very good shop in Arklow, I haven't been to it but friends say it is wonderful.

Welcome to Ireland. My sister is in South Africa at the moment on holiday!

Currently I'm reading FLAME TREES OF THIKA by Elspeth Huxley. It's one of several books about her childhood in Africa.

We visited Thika several years ago, think it was where the old Jonny Weismuller "Tarzan" films were made.

Thirteen is a good read: The cover says "The Killer isn't on trial, he's on the jury." Gives you an idea. Just finished My Dearly Beloved, a good story about two ministers and their wives who ultimately co-minister a church. An examination of faith, or lack of it in one instance. Not preachy or "denominational," but very interesting.

I forgot about "Thirteen" it was brilliant

Just finished “The Time Travelers Wife”...before that “Where’s Sylvie”... before that “Girl on the Train”...before that “The Readers if Broken Wheel Recommend”...loved all of them!

I read the girl on the train, different, I think it was over hyped!
