Hi James, That was nice that you remembered about the pool. Yes, I am looking forward to the spring and floating in the pool with that smile on my face. I wish you the best, as well. May this all be just a bad memory in the future. A memory I don't think we will ever forget.   Hugs Dee

Thanks everyone.

Dee hang it there, one day at I time.

Looking forward to a great spring, something tells me you'll be floating in your pool with a huge smile on your face this summer.

Wishing you the best,

James

Hi Beth, You are moving right along. You, Brendan and James are headed for the light at the end of the tunnel. I won't be too far behind. I have 17 wks left but the time is going quickly. If the doc hadn't stopped my meds for those two weeks I would really only have 15 left. You sound like you are enduring, pretty well. Glad to hear it. Hugs Dee

Congrats to you Elizabeth and to you James for getting so near to the finishing line! smilesmile

Also Brendan too, there will be some celebrating going on when you all get that last shot done!  smile Actually Aaron and I are not too far behind with 14 to go!  Makes me realise that 24 wks isn`t really that long.......smilehmmsmile

Elizabeth, that`s so good that you`re not feeling as frustrated as you were, and getting your weight back on track has got to be a good thing.
You`re right about going with the flow, it`s an important lesson for us to learn.  I`m getting better at just relaxing into it rather than trying to fight the tiredness....

Love to all, Jill xxx

Hey brenden
you are almost there mate,
an absolutely brilliant effort by the aussie ..
On the shots/ i took my own box of meds to the doc when i started as i say they counted it as week 0 ..oh well nursey at Freo hos will sort it out when i get to the end.
i think time is speeding up on the process here, its a bit of a boost getting towards week 40 for me..thankfully i have stopped losing weight and feeling mostly positive tho sleeping more in the afternoons ..and just not as frustrated as i was, i definitely had to learn to be patient and FLOW......

Hey Jill
I agree with Brenden dont fight it Jill its to hard as it is ...just flop when you have to..

James
well done we can do this ...looks like we all finish together
Keep it and be kind to ya self,  you can be superman later...

Love to all Elizabethheart.gifheart.gif

Gidday Beth,

Yeh'  That's pretty cool, getting down to only 9 shots to go, hope they all go down smooth and the time passes quickly.

On the shots and their numbers etc; when I had my first shot in the liver clinic at the hospital, I had to go and get the first beforehand from pharmacy.  So my first shot came out of my first box, can you remember if that is how it happened for you when you had your first shot.

Cheers,

Brendan.

That's great news Beth!! Hope the remaining 9 go smoothly, and quickly for both yourself, and James. smile

(Your last box might only have 3 in it Beth?  Not sure how they will do it.)  All the best.

Thanks everyone xxxxxxx
hey i am not to sure what goes on about the last remaining shot ....i think they only dispense them in 4's...
i realise its because they count week 1 as week 0 hence the extra shot..hmmmm maybe its only Aus where they do it that way ???? anyone know....

Elizabeth .....
