Friday, June 6
A surprising visitor - Nina Volden.
Suddenly she was on the other side of the hedge. New color on the top, but as smiling as always; one of my very good friends from the Heart / Lung Transplant Association - Nina Volden.
She was at "Rikshospitalet" for her annual evaluation, 17 years after she became the "first successful" Lung-Heart transplant patient in Norway. And still successful.
A year ago when I had to get a new pacemaker she was one of the happy persons I met at the hospital, and I blogged about her and others in the FHLT Blog .
She showed up at Tullarbo in time for dessert (strawberry) and the ending of the bottle of white wine we had for the BBQ Salmon today. Next year she will call earlier and join us for dinner as well.
Nina is at the moment well prepared for the European Sport Games to be held in Vichy, France between June 21st and 26th this year. She is the most winning transplant in the EHLTF history, and I am convinced she will return from this year games with new trophies.
Thank for the visit and good luck in Vichy to you and all the other Norwegian participants.
