What a day! Well, it started easy with a yoga massage – pure bliss! Dr. Zenev makes sure there is no infection in my throat, fungus is gone, blood is ok, but he reckons since I am there, I might as well have another laser session and he is such a fun character and really …

Oh well, where do I start – yes, I am still coughing and yes, it feels like there is no improvement whatsoever!!! I have enough! I cough all night, my lungs are hurting and by times I feel I will throw up… and I get headaches. I am never ill and I get a headache …

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 😉 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 …

„OMG, you actually have no voice, just like you wrote in your blog… ;)“ – my school friend Anne-Karen calls me today… Yes, true and yes, I try to just listen, which obviously does NOT work… but I love it. This is it – these special friendships and these special conversations are all worthwhile loosing …
