    Rosie is moody because:
    1) She is in hospital until early next week
    2) She was given an egg sandwich instead of a ham one for tea
    3) Everyone else on the ward snores
    4) Her internal bleeding is either caused by the tumour in the stomach tissue growing or because the tumour in the stomach tissue is dying. We all know which one of those we like the sound of.
    Anyway, because her platelets are too low, her professor feels it’s too high a risk to go home at the moment. She is though well enough to play a cruel April Fool on her lovely family this morning so don’t feel too sorry for her.

    Well Rosie, you are better off being somewhere where they can treat you quickly if you need it and you are being looked after.

    Get your Mum to bring you in a baguette of your choosing tomorrow to make up for the lack of a ham sarnie.

    Have you an ipod or similar to put on at night with headphones to drown out the snoring and help you sleep?

    Finally the bleeding definitely, without question has to be the tumour dying and I am directing all my positive mental attitude towards that thought.

    thanks for the update Rosies Mum, ha ha I can only guess what the cruel april fools joke could of been about, but Im sure it was probably very harsh!!

    Thinking of rosie and her family too, good luck and god speed for a fast home return

    Poor Rosie, I hope you don’t end up with a snory (sp?) husband like most of us women have to put up with. Maybe that’s why we have PMT and the menopause, snoring men. Huh!
    Anyway, earplugs, iPod or alcohol – earplugs being the best option, ask the nurses for some.
    Hospital is the best place for you, which I’m sure you know, though you must hate being there now.
    And, like Alison, I’m sending positive vibes to you for a dying tumour. In face, I’ll get Eshe, my 19.5 year old cat on the vibe machine, it may take a bit of time for her to pedal and get it up to full speed, but she’s a great viber!
    Take care, relax as best you can, chill, sleep, it’s a great healer.

    OOOh, could feel the mood, tension and scowling face from just your short post! Want to know about April Fool joke. It’s a real bummer that you are being kept in hospital but needs must. Get yourself down to the Costa coffee shop for a coffee and a croissant in the morning- surely the ward will allow you to have a little walk down the corridor? It will give you a brief change of scenery and some desperately needed calories. Snoring is bad, will watch the papers to make sure nobody gets smothered with a pillow overnight. You could always pretend to be a bit loopy and create your own noises to get your own back?!! Tumour is shrinking for sure.

    Hi Rosie!
    I’m just writing to tell you that the conference tonight went really well, especially your video and the tees!!!

    You’re a massive inspiration and by the sounds of tonight your tees went down so well, all of the models want one!

    I hope that the lack of ham is not a regular occurrence and that you manage to get some sleep, regardless of the obviously hugely inconsiderate snorers on your ward.

    I wish you a very speedy recovery and hope to see you again at some point 🙂

    Rory (hope support) x

    If only moody thoughts were able to shrivel that bleeding thing up! It sucks that you are in there and over the weekend is beyond disappointing. We need some positive vibes to stabilising those platelets and then the nod from the Prof that you can get out of there.
    🙂 Have a swim in the mood, I know you’ll pull yourself out of it soon enough. Definitely put in a lunch order with cafe de mum and dad.
    love and hugs

    Much love from up north Ro, get well soon!

    Mr P

    Thanks Jo
    Are you in the QE or Gloucester?
    a. The sandwich order is correct today
    b. The snorers shut up
    c. Your body is extremely busy making platelets so you can go home on Monday
    Keep smiling brave girl, we are all sending you lots of love and hope for a positive outcome and that that bleeding thing stops bleeding! Look forward to seeing you soon for a pint in The Farmer’s Arms xxx

    Egg instead of ham and constant snoring would make me incandescant with fury so I think being moody is very restrained 😉
    Sorry you are back in hosp and hope you escape soooon.

    I think you are inspirational because whatever is going on, waxing or waning in your tum – you are an unstoppable force, a love generator, a magical worker….but I’m just a little worried about Michelle’s cat – should we let the RSPCA know?

    • Helen April 2, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

      I’m Michelle’s niece and Eshe is the most spoiled cat I know so I think she will be fine, even if she is made to pedal a vibe machine!

      Rosie – hope they let you out of hospital soon. It’s no fun being there, especially with the wrong food and snoring wardmates.

    Hi Rosie, hope you’ve eaten what you wanted today!! Thinking of you lots, lots of positive vibes coming from this area of France as I keep being asked about you by my friends!!
    love mags.

  12. celia butler April 2, 2011 at 4:45 pm #

    Hoping this has been a better day for you Rosie.
    Wishing you higher platelets, the food you want and lots of dead tumour cells. You might need earplugs to sort out the other one! Please say hello to your mum for me and love to you both. x

  13. Mum April 2, 2011 at 6:39 pm #

    Update on Rosie – platelets have continued to drop so she is now in an isolation bed. The good news is that she only has her own snoring to bother her and she has to have special care taken with her food so no more egg/ham mix ups. The bad news is she is likely to go mad with boredom and the TV in her room is analogue so when it all goes digital here on 6th she won’t even have that to watch. So keep willing those platelets to grow/form/spread or whatever they do. She says thank you for all your messages.

      Hi Rosie and Rosie’s mum, hope today is a better day for you and that the platelets are growing well. Perhaps knock on effect could donate a tv for the isolation ward, which you could use Rosie whilst there??!!
      We’ve been out for a walk this morning already and are going out again this afternoon. John has now decided that as long as noone’s watching we can break into a jog for short stretches – I’m finding it harder as all my bouncy bits seem to bounce and wobble like jellies!! Can you picture it????Unfortunately I’m not exaggerating…still have a LONG way to go, but at least I’m trying!
      love mags.

  14. Alison April 2, 2011 at 7:24 pm #

    Ok, ok, focussing on influencing those platelets to grow now……………

    Good luck Rosie, hope your count is soon on the rise.

    Just caught up with your news ….. thinking of you …. and all sending you their love and best wishes! Have you had a visit from nurse Kinsella this time 😉 !
    Hoping for a speedy recovery,
    Deb n Co. xxxxx

    Looks like Michelle’s cat isn’t working hard enough on those good vibes! Isolation is a mixed blessing – much quieter at night but less to look at during the day! Get your computer onto the ward and then you can have some virtual friends to visit via Facebook and have i player for the TV. Are you doing that ‘clean food’ stuff? A bit more restrictive but at least the staff will need to get your order right and the food hopefully will be done just for you. Thanks for the update Mum. Hope you get everything sorted soon.

    Hi Rosie, hoping for lots of new platelets for you today. As soon as you feel better you can come and see the new piglets. Primrose had 9 on Friday but she is keeping them to herself and won’t let them out of the ark yet. We don’t know how many boys/girls yet. Sylv is due any day now and she is very large. We’ve had to build a new hut for Derek so he has somewhere to go while the girls are doing their stuff. Will send some pics when we have some.

  18. celia butler April 3, 2011 at 12:51 pm #

    Thanks for the update Jo. Sending ultra positive thoughtwaves from the Middle East and I think that increased platelets for Rosie ought to be your Mother’s Day present (although I’m sure a few chocs wouldn’t go amiss either!). Love to you both. x

  19. margaret crisp April 3, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    Hi, just thought I’d look in again before I turn the computer off for the evening. It’s rained this afternoon which prevented an afternoon walk but have had the mini-trampoline out instead. It’s hard work, involving a lot of bouncing!!!
    Am hoping you’re beginning to feel a bit better, and that lovely new platelets are swimming across the Channel as I type! Am off to do some knitting in a mo. whilst watching t.v., have been commissioned to knit two matinee jackets, so am trying not to make mistakes with it….
    love mags.

  20. Debbie April 3, 2011 at 11:52 pm #

    Hi Ro, I am willing some more platelets in your direction and hoping you can get out soon. Is it really true that you may have no tv as of Tuesday and no internet either? I do agree with whoever it was who suggested a small investment from TKOE would be in order here. A girl must keep herself amused!
    Love to you all, Debbie
