Discharge optimism!

Tomorrow I’ll be discharged from the hospital! It feels kind of crazy. I have been her since March 20. 3 weeks. I am so excited to get back home. Mathias will testify to the fact that I am going on and on about all the things that I need to plant on our balcony the…

Udskrivelsesoptimisme

I morgen bliver jeg udskrevet fra hospitalet! Det er sgu ret vildt. Jeg har været her siden den 20. marts. Så 3 uger. Jeg glæder mig så meget til at komme hjem. Mathias kan bekræfte at jeg sludrer non-stop om alle de ting, jeg vil hjem og plante på altanen. Men i første omgang skal…

#hospitaloutfitoftheday

Yesterday I got a fever, but today I killed it at the rowing machine in the morning and walked 6 km in the afternoon. I am slowly getting stronger! This hospitaloutfit is a celebration of my dad! While I was at the hospital the was a Stine Goya stock and sample sale. My dad went…

Progress, walks, family and challenges

Since day 6 I have been feeling that things are in progress. It obviously doesn’t mean that it isn’t still really challenging and that there are a lot of bumps on the road. But nonetheless progress. On day 6 my platelets was quite low. The platelets or the thrombocytes are a component of blood whose…

Fremskridt, gåture, familie og bump på vejen

Siden dag 6, har jeg egentligt gået rundt og følt at det går fremad. Det betyder dog ikke, at det ikke stadig er virkelig hårdt, og at der ikke er en masse forskellige små og store udfordringer.

En kageopskrift til sygeplejersken Gerda

En af de mange fantastiske sygeplejesker på afdelingen – Gerda – opdagede, at jeg kan lide at bage kager og tænke på opskrifter. Måske var min daglige morgentræning til genudsendelserne af den store bagedyst, der afslørede det 🙂 I hvert fald kom jeg til at love, at jeg ville lave en kageopskrift til hende. Den…

#hospitaloutfitoftheday

Once again Mathias and I went for a long walk, the difference is that today the sun was shining! I’m still exhausted, but I think the long walks are working really well, both for my mental health (not being at the hospital all the time) and my strength. I can fell that my legs that…

Day 1-5: Progress, but nausea and food loathing

I was really tired the day after my new birthday – on Day 1. It was probably the chemo and not the blood stem cells, but nonetheless it had taken a hard toll on my body. But considering the amount of chemo and medicine I was doing okay. Suddenly my blood pressure, which has until…
