unregularly here for a while
« on: November 22, 2006, 05:12:31 AM »
Hey everyone,

These days I am not here very often, because my brother is very ill and I am all the time travelling up and down to Amsterdam. 

I am going through a period with a lot of worries now. Please if you can, pray or send positive thoughts for my brother.

If you want to read what is going on, I am blogging about it on pozslv.blogspot.com

Hi everyone,

My brother got through his surgery well. It was even more complicated that the doctors thought, they discovered that his aorta was about to burst, so they gave him an artificial aorta. The surgery lasted 9 hours.
But he is awake, he talked with his wife and today they are going to put him from the Intensive Care to the Medium care unit. I'm optimistic (and dreadfully tired!)

Had a coffee and a croquet with him in the cafe of the hospital yesterday, unbelievable how quick his recovery is! Really relieved!

Thanks everybody for your good wishes. I do need that rest, Ann, next weekend my lover Theo and I go away for a long weekend!
