I got a letter from the hospital today…I’m getting my mammography the 25th of September.
That is good then I don’t have to wait more than two weeks to see if everything is really ok…

And now I am officially an old woman………
I got a trolley shopper!!!!! Only little old women use them here!!!
But as my hands and arms gets slowly worse and worse and I am not allowed to carry more than 4 pounds - which I did sometimes anyway, bad me - I had to get one for my shopping.
I need a little time to get used to it, but in the long term I think I’m gonna be pleased with it. It can walk up the stairs so that is pretty cool;)

Can you make small exercises with your arms and hands?
My doc has also told me not to carry heavy stuff anymore.

My physiotherapist still works with me and gives me new execices that I have to do every day for the rest of my life...the 4 pounds limit is because of the lymphnotes the doctor removed in my armpit during the cancer operation..as they are missing I can get a lot of problems with my arm if I´m not careful....so finally I had to admit that I needed a trolley to wheeel my grocery home;)

You be careful and listen to the doctor sweetheart..I can´t affort you to get sick..

and your icon.....wails...........

My mom had one of those, and I used to use it for her. I was only in my twenties. We stopped using it when I married Michael, and we had the car to go shopping for my mom, and Michael and I could carry the shopping, but it was so useful.

My parents have told me for a long time that I should have one..but me being a stubborn ass refused...but as the pain gets worse I have to accept my fate..and it really is a good thing...I´m sure I´ll feel better after grocery shopping, when I don´t have to carry them home..

Use whatever makes your life easier. And it can walk up stairs? Hmmm - no, I guess it isn't meant for the shopper to sit in it. :(
Good luck and best wishes in advance with the mammogram.

It makes it so much easier....it is just me that postponed it, because I wouldn´t realise how bad I really am..
Well it can´t walk on it´s own, but it have like three small weels so I can drag it up the stairs easy;)
Thanks, I´m a bit nervous...

Good luck with the mammogram.. I'll be thinking of you.. And it's understandable that you're nervous...

Thank you so much honey.

That's good you don't have to wait so long for the mammogram, you'll be fine:D

Nothing wrong with having a trolley, at least you can still do your own shopping so that's good:D

*hugs you tight*

I´m glad it wont take long to get the mammogram, waiting is the worst.
And the trolley is good, then I don´t need to have others do my shopping....it is just a bit hard realising that I really can´t carry anything anymore..
♥hugs and kisses♥

Hey! My mum always used a trolley because we had to buy our groceries for a whole week and far from home so it is okay^^

I hope your hands and arms are okay, Kastanje Honey.
Take care of yourself, please and listen to the doctors.
*hugs you tight*

And it is good to know that you'll have your mammography soon enough! The earlier, the better! ;)

Thanks sweetie,
yeah my Mum have one too and she really like it, so she didn´t have to carry all the groceries to the second floor....I know I´m gonna be pleased with mine too.
And I will listen to the doctors, promise, because I will only make it worse for myself if I don´t.
And the sooner is better, it really is.

I forget that not everyone (like here in the U.S.A) doesn't just go out, get their groceries for the week and drives it home in the car... so I don't think your cart is old lady at all... I think it's cool that you can just walk there and walk it all back home! You can just call me a silly American ;)

And you should listen to your doc. If he says 4 pounds then 4 pounds it is!
Sep. 13th, 2009 08:26 am (UTC)
Well you`re my silly American then;)

And I will listen, promise, because I´ll only make it worse if I don´t.

Have a trolley tooooooooo! LMAO!

You'll see everything will be fine at the mammography, too! *huggles you*

Trolleys for the win^^

I know, but thank you♥

Thank you hon, I´m pleased too.

And the trolley is a good thing, and will make it much easier, as I can do my own shopping and not depend on others to do it.
But as you say - it is hard to accept that there are things you can´t do or ever will be able to again..........

nocturniquette1 made the icon for me, it is sooooo cute;)
♥love you♥
