#hospitaloutfitoftheday

I am feeling better! And today my friend and colleague Nanna and her new born baby visited me. It was so good to see her. But I had to wear a mask so that I wasn’t a danger to the baby – I don’t have an immune system and all of my child hood vaccines…

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…

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…

Dag 1-5: Fremskridt, men kvalme og madlede

Dagen efter min nye fødselsdag – dag 1 – var jeg virkelig træt. Det var kemoen og ikke nødvendigvis stamcellerne, der havde tæret hårdt på kroppen. Efter omstændighederne var jeg nu okay. Mit blodtryk steg pludselig ret voldsomt. Det var på grund af alt den medicin, jeg får. Nu får jeg noget blodtryksmedicin, så det…

Today Mathias and I went for a really long walk. We even had a pit stop at a café. I still have food loathing, but when Mathias ordered a salad I suddenly felt like eating some beans. I asked the waiter if I could get ten boiled beans and some dip and I could! I…

Day 0: My new birthday. Blood stem cells!

Day 0 Finally day 0 arrived. The big day where my blood stem cells were to be reintroduced. I had been a bit nervous, because I knew that it would be really cold (max 4 degrees), could hurt, and taste bad. There were also risks of side effects, but that would not be due to…

Dag 0: Min nye fødselsdag. Blodstamceller!

Dag 0 Så blev det endelig dag 0. Den store dag, hvor blodstamcellerne skulle genindføres. Jeg havde været lidt nervøs, for jeg vidste, at det ville være rigtig koldt (maks. 4 grader), kunne gøre lidt ondt og smage grimt. Man kunne også risikere at få bivirkninger, men de ville ikke være på grund af stamcellerne,…

Counting towards Zero: Chemo and side effects

I don’t have any energy. But I’ll try to log how the treatment is progressing. So much is happening that I almost forget about it myself. I connection with the blood stemcell treatment the doctors are counting towards day zero. The new birthday! The day the stem cells are transplanted. Day -5 The day began…
