Today we had a regular checkup to follow up on his heart insufficiency. After the ultrasound cardiography, it was concluded that he now was all well! His heart has normal capacity! Such a releif! Well, ok, his permanent “electrical” heart condition will require pacemaker all through his life, but … like … for heaven’s sake! We went out to the waiting room and cried! All these years of worry and hardship. Now we can breathe out! He will phase out some of his meds as well in the coming three weeks. Mika is so strong! But! He also complained of…

Very hurtful, but nothing seemed to be broken in his arm. After a night with pain, we made a call to the public health service at 1177, and they recommended to go to the kiddie ER at our hospital Vrinnevi here in Norrköping – better safe than sorry! Lucky he was – “only” his radius was snapped out a bit, and was easily snapped back just by the doctor’s hand. And x-ray confirmed nothing was broken,…
Today, my beloved intended-partner-for-life Karin turned 41. Chill, kicking xmas out of town (as rest of Sweden) according to traditions on Tyska Torget (“banktorget”), and a High Quality take-away pizza grabbed on our way home. Karin dived into her fav food reality show/competition of Australian flare and flavour, while I took an evening run. And finalized by Iron Man re-run on the telly together. In the midst of all – Mika, lovely as Always! Who gave Karin a check on unlimited hugs as birthday present! I love you forever, Akro … Woman?? Unconditionally! Period.
So. Week two passing of Groovy 2019! Week soundtracked by Swedish Hiphop. Some pulsating beats. And the soundtrack from Mika’s current favourite animated show. On autorepeat. Yup! Now. Good Night!
Day, beyond breakfast. A brilliant documentary. John Lennon: Imagine. Watch it! Beyond domestic services and fika, first event of the year. Gong Bath. Screen dump from my Insta Story. Try it! And last – but not least! Mika’s new outfit! A new pyjamas with motive from his fav kid TV show right now! More on that tomorrow on my Insta! Then, we had a TV Night, with happy Mika in bed in his new outfit. Good Night!
Yesterday Mika and I were up early, playing in his room. Here is the first picture of him I took 2019! I think my blogging will be a mix of the personal and the professional, with family and friends, music, writings, ideas and reflections, projects and events. Let’s see what unfolds!
Today Karin and I celebrate ten years as a couple! We have had our ups and downs, challenges and joys, but first and foremost we have had each other! One peak moment in our relationship was of course seeing our son come to life, Mika. Soon three years ago! We also has seen Nadine grow up, now eleven years strong. We lost Karin’s father Hans 2010, and dear old cat Wendy 2012, and has seen our cats Uchi and Deshi arrive 2013, and Soto 2015. Sometimes lyricists grasps a feeling. I borrow some lines from Depeche Mode, from.Shake the Disease,…
Fifty years ago, exactly today, The Beatles released their 7″ single, “All you need is Love” in the UK. I wish their universal message gets to be understood and lived by, in the end the whole Family of Humanity. But, to reach there, begin with yourself. The song was tonight’s lullaby. Now, my turn to get to bed. Good Night!
Yeah! This, I strive for! And this attitude, strive to have it transferred to my family – especially my kids #MikaTheHero and #NadineTheHeroine! The most secure way to get a better world in the future, that is. To learn your kids all that you have, and thus can give.
Today, we celebrated Mika, turning two years of age! We had Hedwig, Jippii and Hanna to visit, so it was great! It doubled as a Mother’s Day, so great to have two gen’s of mothers here. I love this boy like crazy. Thank you Hanna and Hedwig for the gifts!
Mika training with his new shoes! And Spring Première at Halvars Ice Cream!| #MikaTheHero #PhotoStory
Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!
