Sunday Serenity. With three distinct mediated powers, we have got confirmed beyond all doubt that Mika is with us. 24. 7. 365! I spare all the details for now. And I also will return with his main messages. Separately. We shifted from a pain beyond measure from when he left ‘this’ world for ‘the other’, until last night with a mediated session on Mika’s call and initiative – hands on! – to a measurable sense of relief waking up this morning! THANK YOU MY BELOVED MIKA! So, with that feeling, sharing and caring also with Hedwig’s cousin Pia, coming by…
Let the forest be our healer. In Grännäs, Valdemarsvik, at my mother-in-law Hedwig. Co-grief. Just took a forest therapy walk, and an evening tea after that. Now in bed. We will be here until Wednesday. Photos from back and front view from the house, “Hedwigsborg” – Castle of Hedwig. Sleep, holy sleep, come! And let Mika come through in my dreams tonight to hear him say he is ok! We survived – barely – the first night without Mika. Sleep came to us against all odds, in rounds of three. Mantras help! Yesterday every single breath was a victory against…
Mika has left us, at 11.34 Swedish Summer Time. I am out of words. I only have a scream. Be with us. Mika, wherever you are now. I love you forever!
Mika gets four infusions of antibiotics a day at home. Here, preparing for the evening delivery. Every sixth hour, so next time in the middle of the night at 1AM. He has been very low on energy today and sleeping very much. Get well soon, dearest!
This morning we found Mika with fever. So when we went to the hospital to deliver his daily dose of cortisone, we asked them to check it out. Tests showed no infection. But with fever at 39.2 C, they decided to keep him overnight for observation and give him antibiotics every sixth hour from 1pm. I am home with the cats, Karin is at the hospital. All will be fine! Here Mika is at the play therapy.
So great being home again, after the days at the hospital. Now, let’s hope the treatment will work!
Last shot! Going home tomorrow! Hooray!
One of the strongest things to deal with at the hospital, and wait for e. g. those five hours of ATG infusion to sink in, is boredom. Here, with the help of good old Yatzy! All fine, tomorrow last treatment!
Five hours more of infusion of ATG. Controls made frequently during treatment as seen in pic. Good thing he can borrow stuff to play with when fixed to a cord and not to leave the room and corridor. Two days to go. Mika is ok. Going home Monday! Photo by Karin.
He got the second ATG infusion of five today, and all is fine. A small fever in late afternoon, but nothing serious. He also got a blood transfusion in the night, yesterday he got trombocytes the same time. Brave Mika living thru it!
He got his first out of five ATG infusions today. No reactions! All fine. And our MD spoke to the donor coordinator in Sweden for bone marrow stem cells at Huddinge Hospital, and they have found three potential donors out there! We haz hope!
Some days and nights at the hospital ahead. Mika begins his treatment tomorrow. You can read about ATG treatment for aplastic anemia here. Some rough and tough side effects to expect. Give Mika strength to meet and cope with the challenge ahead! He’ll make it! Capice? Photo by Karin.
