Silly & Serious in Sweden

Why a blog?

Why not? I know I like reading about other people's ideas and thoughts - whether silly or serious - and also video blogs - aka VLOGS - on YouTube and such. I'm not going to do anything super fabulous here - merely keep a diary of sorts, show you my favorite links, what makes me laugh or what makes me know - the usual stuff. I hope you will enjoy! AND I hope you feel like jumping in an commenting on occasion!

Illness in the family

Life as I know it!Posted by Gun Brooke Sun, March 15, 2009 13:25:17

Hi everybody,

No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. We've had some stuff to deal with here - my mother-in-law became ill again so we spent all of Friday afternoon/evening in the ER with her. Poor mom-in-law, she has something we call Rose Fever - an aggressive skin condition on her feet and shins. She's in the hospital with antibiotica treatment as we speak. She's always treated me like her own flesh and blood, and I love her to bits. Worried for her, naturally. She's 81 and not doing so well, gets confused easily and so on. She was always our rock, so capable and feisty--it just isn't fair that she has to endure being so wobbly and sick... but such is life, I fear.

So, any vibes or good thoughts or prayers you can spare for a woman who lived through WW2 in Denmark as a child/teenager, and who has worked hard all her life and only thought of her son and his family, way before doing something for herself, do send them to my mom-in-law. Her names is Edith.

Thanks. *hugs*
