Shops Closed For A Week

"die Suche"Why do I hate hospitals so much? There is something more beside the general ill feeling about the necessity of hospitals. It has to do with doctors that don’t listen with an air of “I know better anyway”, with asking nurses for small things that I would prefer to simply do or get myself. But there is something more on which I cannot quite put my finger, something that lets my stomach revolt at the prospect of another stay at the hospital with my daughter. I guess I’ll find out what it is soon enough: Shops are closed for at least another week.

Thank you for all the comments on the last post and emails with well-wishes and congratulations. I enjoyed them all, always meant to write something really well formulated back as an answer to let you know how much I appreciate you taking an interest. Life seemed like a whirlwind and time went by so quickly, and now I already have bad news again.

And all this just when we managed to arrange life at home so that I was able to work a little. – I hope I’ll be able to show you more than this first trial above soon. I’ll talk more about the book and the concept when I have more to present. I hope it will work as a cliffhanger it is supposed to be – talk to you (hopefully) soon.

  1. Oh Hilke! I’m so sorry to hear this. I can definitely understand why your stomach wants to revolt. I hope things go ok with your little girl. It sounds so very anxiety-making and frustrating. 🙁

  2. Hi Hilke,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your news and do hope you and family are managing as best as you can. You have really had a lot of challenges! I admire your spirit and wish you all things good. Keep us posted….

  3. Hi Hilke

    Do hope you you don’t have to stay in too long and that really soon you will be able to enjoy your family together at home.

  4. Thanks everyone for the good wishes! Lucky me has such a good husband who – after I complained so convincingly that I couldn’t bear more stays in hospital – stayed with little girl and I was alone with little boy at home. He only got sick the last days and I spent another night with both twins there. We were the main attraction of the ward and we had visits from a couple of nurses who came by just to see them both, and they generally treated me much nicer than before. So wasn’t too bad. Now I am back home and back in my studio 🙂

  5. I totally share your feelings about hospitals! It’s the smell….and everything it reminds me of. I’m glad you’re home, and I hope everything is well with both babies!!

    1. Hi Lillian,

      nice to see you here. I suppose you have quite a lot to do at the moment, too! Hope everything is fine with your family.
      About the babies being well – well, our daughter will most probably have to undergo a couple of surgeries more until she reaches a stable state. Doctors say that when she is 12 months old it will probably stop. But she is apparently feeling well now that she is home. Baby boy is getting fatter and more cheery each day. Now I am waiting for the two to entertain each other at least for a while. It should be nice hearing them “talk” (i.e. babble) with each other.
