Latest news

Scotty's back home! It was nice having him around for a couple of days. I went to see him this evening and he was licking my hands and layed down at my feet with his head on top of them.

I'm feeling a bit tired lately. I think it's because of the weather. It has been raining a lot lately and when the air is very damp I'm always in more pain and feeling tired because of the fibromyalgia. Well, it's something I have to live with and accept. Not sure, if I can though! I talked to somebody today and he told me a story about a little boy of 6 years old who was treated in a clinic in Boston. It was the clinic of Deepak Chopra. The little boy had a tumor in his head and couldn't be operated. At the clinic they learned him how to meditate and to vizualise the white bloodcells to eat up the tumor (or something like that). They showed him a lot of photos of what was happening in his head and body for a better understanding, because he was so young. After a couple of years of meditating several hours a day his tumor was gone!
So I was thinking this afternoon maybe this can help me to overcome the fibromyalgia?!! Why not give it a try! I just have to meditate about healthy muscles!

I have just found out this evening that Zander's dad isn't feeling that well (too) and will not be able to take him for a couple of weeks. It's a bit of a bummer!
But it's going better now with Zander here at home. I have made some changes and they are working! So maybe everything will go just fine this Summer! I would love to go somewhere near the sea but I just can't afford to pay for a cabin. And because of the fibromyalgia camping is out of the question. To bad, I loved camping!

I hope my dad will do fine too. He recently found out about having cancer to the prostate (?). He is going to see a specialist on friday and than he will be told what they want to do about the cancer (injections, chemo, operation).

This afternoon my auntie Maaike of almost 101 years old had an operation. She broke her wrist and upper arm near the shoulder when she fell over a threshold. It happened a couple of weeks ago but she didn't tell her kids because she was afraid that they would put her in a nursing home. She phoned for a doctor but because it was on a Sunday it wasn't her regular doctor. He told her that it was only a contusion (?). A couple of days later her familydoctor came to visit her and he called the kids and send her to the hospital for x-rays. It was broken! So she had to stay in the hospital. She was in there for over a week without being operated. Because of her old age the doctors had to think through if it was really necessary to operate her, but they finally decided that they should do it because she was in a lot of pain. So I hope everything went fine. My mom didn't call me so I presume it went well!
My aunt lives in a house with no elevators and has to climb a very steep stairway every day. She fell down these stairs a couple of times but she never got badly injured. So it's a bit ironic that she broke her arm on 2 places by falling over a threshold!
