Something at the back of my mind

As we go through our daily life, some things tend to get forgotten or neglected. Quite often these things are more important than the trivia that we tend to. Now and then we get reminders that we have to get back to things that really matter. I have just had one such reminder about things in the back of my mind that I need to tend to – it came from a thing in the back of my head!

About two weeks ago I experienced some problems with my vision and then later started behaving in an unresponsive way to the people around me. Bitte and Henrik quickly realised that something was seriously awry and sent me off to the emergency department at Uppsala university hospital. After a series of samples and tests I was diagnosed with a suspected small brain tumour (please note that small refers to the size of the tumour and not the brain) at the back of my head. The only reasonable course of action is to remove the tumour and follow up with a combination of radiation- and chemotherapy.

The size and position are fortunately favourable for removal of the tumour by surgery. This is booked for Monday October 12. Bitte will update this site, in Swedish, with details of my progress after the surgery up untill I am up and running again.

To be honest, this scares me a great deal, but I have so many people around offering their support, and the staff at the hospital are the best.

Roadblock

The Fifa world cup has only just finished. Unfortunately, neither Wales nor England came out victorious, although both gave a fairly good account of themselves. My memories of the world cup go back to the final in 1966, the year England did manage to win. We were staying at my Nain’s house in Barmouth. I…

Two years

Today marks two years since a glioblastoma was discovered inside my head. Since then, I have had one operation, radiation therapy, electric field treatment, cytostatics and loads of different tests and scans. After all of that, I am still here and feeling healthy. The results of the latest MR-scan will be here soon. Then we…

Tick the box

Spring and summer, for me, means getting out into the countryside. Either for long walks, bike rides or a round of golf. Churchill once described golf as an effective way to ruin a good walk. The way I have been playing lately, I tend to agree. Being out in the countryside also means being exposed…
