Our 29 year old son has had health issues since he was 13, when he was diagnosed with both Diabetes and Addison's disease (a rare chronic endocrine disorder in which the adrenal glands do not produce sufficient steroid hormones). Diabetes is well known to most, the second one is less common. These two disorders work against each other and make them both complicated to manage.
On Saturday morning,
our son was found dead in his flat
by the home care nurse that checked up on him daily.
He died from medical complications of his two disorders.
Under litt tvil poster jeg omigjen noen bilder fra september 2010. Da bodde vi på sykehotellet på Haukeland i Bergen i 2 uker etter at min mann hadde gjennomgått stamcelletransplantasjon. Nå er vi tilbake her, han har hatt en uidentifisert infeksjon i snart 2 måneder, og blir retestet og viderebehandlet. Almenntilstanden er ganske bra, så derfor ble vi hotellboere. Da vi kom hit ble jeg veldig minnet på den tiden for nesten 2 år siden. Jeg går på nåler igjen, og konsentrasjonen har vært dårlig en stund.
Jeg har lyst til å blogge, men det tar meg litt lang tid å returnere kommentarer. Håper dere forstår!
Årstad kirke er nærmeste nabo til sykehotellet, en vakker kirke fra 1890.
Slightly doubtful, I'm reposting some shots from September 2010. We were staying at the patient's hotel at Haukeland Hospital in Bergen for 2 weeks after my husband's successful stem cell transplant. Right now we're back here, he has had an unidentified infection for nearly 2 months, and he's being retested and treated. His general condition is pretty good, so that's why we're at the hotel. When we arrived here I was strongly reminded of those days nearly 2 years ago. I'm on edge again, and my concentration ability is wobbly at best.
I want to keep blogging, but it takes me a while to get around and return comments. We'll see how it goes, and I'm hoping for your understanding.
Årstad church is a close neighbor to the hotel, a beautiful 1890's church.
(I started to drive across this small bridge when I suddenly "met" the moon. I jumped on the breaks, and fortunately it's in a remote area so at 11 pm there was no traffic, and I was able to very quickly snap a few shots.)
