“Tough night. It’s so empty on life. Of fuss. Of sounds. The emptiness is so numbing.” “Such a great missing.” Come and comfort mummy with your caring, love and full light being! — Now I will meditate on this. We are home. But a home without Mika is like s scattered puzzle, who used to be the 100 complete, now 98 pieces missing. Help us find these, one by one, and find ways to feel his presence more and more. Every moment ahead! MIKA – WE LOVE YOU 4EVAH.
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 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!
We love her, the Queen of our home.
After a day at work, and then with Mika and Karin at the hospital, just got home with a refill of cat food! Hungry kitteh happy!
Today’s dinner. On the balcony.
So great being home again, after the days at the hospital. Now, let’s hope the treatment will work!
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.
Co-exploring the big big world.
Keeps us strong! What? All the love and support you give! Now we have a diagnosis. Now we have a plan. Now, let’s act upon it! Mika will get well!
Now we have a diagnosis. Mika has aplastic anemia. It’s a serious blood disease, where his bone marrow doesn’t produce blood cells. No red, no white, no trombocytes. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aplastic_anemia Next week they will start with ATG treatment, and start to look after a donor of stem cells for a bone marrow transplant. A process of months ahead. We’re definitely in need of mental and moral support and lots of prayers. We keep strong! We will make it!
Thanks! Very colorful, the way we like it. Supporting a circular economy!
