Celebrating Hedwig 70 years and Karin <3 Anders 11 years! | #HappyBirthday #Anniversary

9th of May my mother-in-law turned 70! We celebrated her today in Valdemarsvik, together with her son Roland with family, her sister Solweig and us. Photo by Mika from last Summer. Today, also, is a special day for Karin and me. We have been a couple 11 years and engaged for six years! Hooray for us!

Visiting my bro’ Anders beyond his brain surgery! | #AndersSporring

Anders has undergone getting a probe in his brain, a so-called DBS – deep brain stimulation. It is there to strongly inhibit or even stop his essential tremor and hopefully also some of his Parkinson shakings. A new life in the loop for Andy! He is surprisingly ok after going through such a thing! The operation took place in Karolinska Hospital, Neurophysiological Dept, this Wednesday, and he is on convalescence until next week! So happy for you, bro’! What an upgrade! Andy, v. 8.0 – The Bionic Man, now with TWO Pacemakers! How cool is that? And the new one…

Drafting A Thesis Sketch! | #Music4Health

Finally! Got truly into the deepest of writing flow today, when I got focused energy to finalize the first draft of a Thesis Sketch! Hopefully something developing to a full-fledged Synopsis, mature enough to attract further resources. Now sent to my mentor and professor emeritus Bengt Johannisson for response. Happy to see all years of thoughts materialize to this level! And yes – live as you learn! Music for productivity, and the focused social setting at the silent reading room at the University Library really got me disciplined! Almost five hours efficient time. Oh yes! And not that exhausted either….

Karin The Achiever! | #AkroMom

She made the test for applying for Higher Education today – full day testing. What we in Sweden call ‘Högskoleprovet’! Victory Number One already won – SHE MADE IT! More victories ahead … Time to turn the tide! Yay! Me so fkkn proud of her! I love you, my DRRLING!!! Celebration, we had! With balloons! HOORAY!
