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 …

Holweide – what a welcoming site… NOT! I feel like I accidently ended up at some rehab center judging by the scary figures, who stand outside smoking. Well, inside they are actually really nice. I have to do all the paperwork, then go to the cancer station B5 to have a talk about all that …
