This is my life – for now

Dear Reader

I haven’t been posting much since I came home from the hospital. Until now, I didn’t find either the needed inspiration or energy for creating new jewelry

In general, I don’t have much energy yet, which also mean, that I need to plan good, when there are things, as are necessary to get done, to save my power best possible, just to be able to do something

For this, I’m not much at WordPress yet, but I do visit and read so many posts, as I can every day

I do still go to control for my health at several doctors. They do all seem to be competent in each their areas. I have been told, that I will need to have much patience, it can take up to 2 years, before I will be in a good shape again. I find this as a really long time to wait and I don’t feel very patient either

The weather, where I live in Spain, is very good now. The last days, we have had up to 27 degrees C. I have been enjoying my garden together with my 2 old cats, Bølle & Hvide and my dog, Odin. It is really nice to be able to enjoy a blue sky and clearly sunshine 😀  It is also nice to sit and knit in my garden

I do my meditation, when I feel for this. I hope to get back to yoga again in short time, at least to some gentle yoga. I met my teacher few days ago and he offered me to come and get a single hour of gentle yoga with him, for what I became happy for. I do know, that both yoga and meditation will help me to feel much better again

I have been “catching” two different kind of new infections inside the last weeks and got antibiotic for both, which always make me feel tired, so of course there are reasons for not having so much energy yet

For now I try my best to boost my immune system by vitamins, minerals and healthy food daily. Do you have any special advice for boosting ones energy level? If so, please tell me and thank you in advance

Update at my life


Dear Reader

I’m home again after being at the hospital since the 8. of June. I came home late Monday and now I try to find a new rhythm in my new life

As many of you know, my daughter was so kind to update you about, what was going on with my health, for what I’m very grateful and huge thanks to my dear friend Amy for her kind help with posts, while I was away

I don’t have much energy or abundance yet, but I wish to let all of you know, that I feel very grateful for all your love, prayers and kind wishes for both my family and me

For describing my health simply, when I went into the hospital; I got an serious infection in my lungs and my other organs were close to shot down too. The doctors told me, that if I was coming the next day, I would have been death. There are much as I don’t remember from that time. My brain didn’t work well either

I went into ICU and in a respiratory machine, where I stayed for between 2-3 weeks in and out of coma. I was at ICU for 35 days. Then I went to Medical Department. After so long time just laying in a bed, my body didn’t function well. I needed to learn how to hold a pencil or other tools in my hands, how to walk etc. I do walk now by myself, just not very fast. I need to practice to train my muscles in the body, so my body will get strong again. This demands a lot of time, why I will not be much online in here

Still there are many things, as I’m not able to yet, fx. bowing myself down and come up again easily and stop shaking so much at my hands, so practice is needed, also so I will be able to create jewelry again

I do enjoy to be home again and together with my pets, as also became very happy to see me again after more than 8 weeks in the hospital. Now my real healing can go on in my own home and in my own speed. I enjoy the peace here, specially in the nights, where no one are disturbing

I thank you for your patience through all this long time. I will visit your blogs, when I feel the energy and abundance. I might not be commenting as much as usual, but I will show you, that I have been visiting by a Like

I wish all of you a lovely weekend

Irene

Dear Reader


My dog Odin has been ill since before Easter, which have given me much stress by time and because we couldn’t get a diagnose. We are still not sure about that, but should get more to know this week.

Odin got some new medication last week and it seems to work, he is not bleeding now. This gave me some peace in mind and just enough for my health to react. I went down with a virus and have used mostly of my time in my bed since Friday.

When I woke up today, I started feeling better, so I hope it will be better from now.

I have asked for your patience several times in this period and now I will need more time to get a change to catch up at your blogs. I’m still tired and need to find my energy again.

Wish you a happy day

Irene

Update at Odin


odin-2

A spring photo of Odin, where he is happy and feeling good. He is not looking so happy today

Odin started last week to bleed from one side of his nose. Then our vet took blood tests to find out the reason for this. He found out, that Odin had an infection and otherwise his blood test looked good. There were no indications for other illnesses. Odin got 2 kind of medication and we hoped the best. The vet told me, that Odin could continue the bleeding until Monday

In the weekend, Odin started to bleed from his nose many, many times. I did my best to stop it and to keep him calm. Didn’t leave him alone at all, because he was scared, when he started to bleed, which I found understandable

It became worse and worse and more often with the bleeding, so I contacted the vet again and Odin got more tests and X-ray and needed then to go to another Vet Hospital for Endoscopy and other kind of tests, which happened yesterday. Two times of sedation in one day can be a little tough, so our Vet decided to keep him in the clinic last night to secure, they could help him, if anything would happen

I’m happy to be able to say, that nothing bad happened. Now we know, that Odin has an infection in one side of his nose and they took more blood tests today to find out, why he got the infection from beginning, to avoid this to be repeated. We should get these answers Friday

Odin came home in the afternoon, happy to be home again and I was very happy to see him again. He is now very tired and I will need to keep him as calm as possible for the next 2 weeks. No long walks and nothing exciting, because this can start his bleeding again. I got new medication for him and need to give him an injection daily to avoid more bleeding the next days

Odin has been shaved many places in the last week, so I decided to share a more happy photo of him

Thank you very much for your kind support

Irene

NB: I don’t know, how much I will be online for the next days and thank you for your patience

Sand Storm in Spain – 8 Photos


Sandstorm 1

We have had Sand Storm in Spain today, it comes from Africa and pass the Mediterranean Sea. This gives much dust all over here and if we have washed clothe and hanged this outside, we can start all over again. You can see the dust over the sea here, first I thought there were fire, but found out, it was Sand Storm instead, not so dangerous…

Sandstorm 4

I photographed these photos, while I walked with Odin in the afternoon

Sandstorm 7

We are not far from the sea here, but I didn’t feel like going there in this dust

Sandstorm 3

Here you can see the dust change the color of our usual beautiful blue sky

Sandstorm 6

Here we look from a little more far away

Sandstorm 2

We pass from here, when we go for our walks, away from most houses

Sandstorm 8

Here you can see both the beautiful blue sky and the Sand Storm

Sandstorm 5

 This is our usual place for walking at the moment and the sand did fly here too

I hope, that you enjoyed to join us
