Hello everyone,

I just felt like venting tonight.... And I knew you would all listen... Because you are all good at that...
I have had a very bad month and I am trying very hard to keep my chin way up there if I can....
First ........... I had chemo
second........... I had cortisone injections in heal and elbow... ouch...
Third.........And the most terrible... my best friend died of breast cancer... we buried her on wednesday....I am going to miss her so much as she wasn't just my best friend she lived next door to me... We have been friends for seventeen years ....
Saturday morning...I was in the sun room off our family room....It had rained and I did not know we had a leak ... I went to go into the family room, and the next thing I knew I was flying in the air and landed right on my left hip (BAD HIP) and put my hand out and of course I put some of the weight on my left arm... needless to say I am hurting like the dickens... This is all so frustrating... I hope june is a better month...

The good thing that happen is my brother came down for a visit and that was nice .... He did make me laugh... He went home today... Well I guess that is my vent... Thank you for listening...

Love Penny

((((((((hugs))))))) to you Penny :(

It has indeed been a bad month for you hasn't it. I know we talked about your friend the other day and I can imagine how hard it must be for you and for her family. I just hope she's in a more peaceful, pain free place now.

I am sorry to hear about your best friend dying. :hug: She sounds like a very strong and dear lady. You can look back and cherish all your memories you have with her.

:hug: on the shots. They sound painful.:( I hope and pray that they do their job and your elbow and heel feel better soon.

It does seem sometimes when it rains it pours. You are a strong lady and I know you can make it threw. You have inspired me with everything you have gone threw. You are such a kind and caring lady to everyone on this board.

Take care of yourself get lots of TLC from your husband and your family. Give that grandbaby a hug and a kiss. (Being a grandmother is a wonderful experience)

My hubby says when I feel down I should look at pictures and movies of our grand daughter. I always feel better and have a huge smile on my face.

Love,
Lyn

Penny,

I want to tell you I am so sorry to here of you lost your best friend. I hope, you have lots of good memories of her. It must be very painful, for you to have lived right next door, and be reminded every time you see her home.

I hope, your feeling better from your fall. It can take a long time from really deep bruises to heal and feel better.

I am happy to hear, that your brother came to visit you, Penny. That was a nice thing, to happen to you!

I hope, you feel better each day..Vent whenever, you feel like it! :)

Love,
Sandy

Dear Penny,
No wonder you feel down.
I am so sorry that you lost your Best Friend. I remember when I lost a friend with Cancer it takes ages to get over it. The Cancer charity adverts on TV made me cry for ages.
Please talk here as much as you need to, we are all here and want to listen.
Hugs, Lola x

My goodness, they say things come in 3's but you seem to be getting a double hit. It really has been a horrid month for you and I'm so sorry about your best friend.

I hope you get some respite from all this soon and you start to feel better in yourself. I'll be thinking of you.

Sending you gentle hugs, :hugbetter:

Lots'a'luv, :flower2:

Penny I hope that June will be a much better month although the heartache from your friend's death will take ages to ease. I hope you recover fast from your fall. It does knock the stuffing out of a person.

I know how you keep busy helping others and focus on the pleasures of life so important when all is going badly.

Many hugs
Clare

Awww Penny:(. What an awful road you have had to travel lately. I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear friend and neighbor:tears:.
I hope you fair well with any chemo you have to have, and that the cortisone shots give you enough relief to make the initial pain of them worth having. Sending you warm wishes and a prayer or two :there:

Hello Everyone,

Thank you so very much for all your words of encouragement... Each and everyone of you made me feel better.... It is nice to know you have friends out there...
We are so lucky to have each other to support one another even though we live in all four corners of the earth.... When there are so many bad things going on on the internet this is one place I feel safe....
Again thank you....for all the kind words....
My hip is bruised and I would imagine it will be for a while.... I must have looked funny flying through the air with nightgown on.... the arm is almost all better... I am lucky nothing got broken... I think it helped that I have some fat to cushion the fall:rotfl: My poor husband was so upset when I fell he said to me " you should be watching your feet when you walk"... Right so I can walk into walls and bang my head' :wink2: Any way on with my day...

Love to everyone
Penny
