Doctor's Day!! I see Prof. Dr. Breidenbach for my monthly check-up and the tumor shrank from 6mm to 4mm. That is great, but somehow I expected more, as after the three big chemo, it went from 2cm to 6mm and now I had another big one and two little ones.... well, at least it shrank!...

No voice and I think I am close to loosing it now... the rest I mean πŸ˜‰ This is the most annoying thing I have ever experienced (apart from four years ago, when I went to Oli's birthday bash in Mallorca without a voice, but that did not last this long - by far). One... Continue Reading →

"OMG, you actually have no voice, just like you wrote in your blog... ;)" - my school friend Anne-Karen calls me today...

We all have a cold now... it is that time of the year as well, I guess. So, we take it easy and take turns to rest. I look after Leo at lunchtime and Markus is taking the kids to a game park in the afternoon, so I can have a rest. It annoys me... Continue Reading →

Woke up fully dressed between children's books at 3:00am.... I might have been a bit tired πŸ˜‰ It is frustrating though, as I cannot really read to them at them moment, but we are finding ways and hopefully I will get my voice back one day.... Despite all, I still went to see Tabea and... Continue Reading →

OK, I will stop whinging about my early rising kids... they actually played quietly from 5:00 - 6:00, apart from Mia singing "Schlaf, Mia, schlaf" (I wish!), so that is a start....whatever it is, full moon, easterly wind, a phase... it will eventually pass πŸ˜‰ My cough is better and my voice is coming back...

4.50am!!! Well, it was my turn to stay in bed longer, but with two screaming wee firemen full of energy, I cannot sleep... At least they play with each other in such a cute way that my heart is melting away ❀️ My lungs are really hurting now and I almost lost my voice completely.... Continue Reading →
