Pat sorry to hear you had cellulitis too:(  Glad we are both better and hoping this never happens again.

Saw my onc last week and now looks as if I have a mild case of anemia and possibly a sluggish thyroid.  Both conditions are easy to treat.  Picked up my iron supplements last evening.  It's a watch and wait situation with the thyroid.  And life goes on....

Last week I went to my monthly beast cancer support group and found out that it was being cancelled.  That was the last one due to lack of members.  I guess that is a good thing that the members have moved on but also sad.  Just like here, I've met some amazing women who have helped me along my journey.  I have mixed feelings about the end of the group.  I feel that I might finally be at a good place and don't need to rely on the group but will miss the women in it. 

I guess this is just another step in getting to a new normal.

Thats sad Tina, do you have any of their contact numbers to keep in touch?? I hate that this happened here too and I stay here to pay forward the help I received, but I'm pleased I can at least stay in touch with those I want to on FB.

Tina that is too bad.  As a therapist myself I can't imagine stopping a group without giving the members a referral to another local group.  Check with your onc or local hospital.  Most run support groups.  Try to keep in touch on line with members if they want. 
For a change all is well over here:)  I feel good, we are going to begin shopping for wedding gowns next month! I actually managed to save enough money to get my daughter a beautiful dress and maybe even have some left over.  I am waiting to purchase mine.  Want to lose a few pounds first.....ok more than a few:(

Tina, I'm sorry the group has to stop meeting and I hope you can stay in touch with some members if that is what you want.  Moving on can be difficult :)

Annette - I'm so happy that you will start preparing for a wedding -- I'm sure you'll lose those 'few' pounds and you will be a gorgeous mother of the bride!

Hug

Tina, I'm sorry about your group. I hope that if you feel the need for support, you can connect with other women now. Goodness knows, there are plenty of us out there. In the meantime, you have us!

Annette, have fun dress shopping! It's so nice to have something so happy and positive to focus on.
