6 months have passed, a terrifying autumn

Half a year or 6 months have gone since the the night my summer world disappeared and I was in coma for the next two weeks undergoing surgeries day after day to fight the horrible bacterial infection Necrotizing Fasciitis.
I have covered my rehabilitation in previous blogposts so no repetition here, but this poster from the FaceBook site I Support Nurses should be rewritten; "Every patient have many nurses that they can thank for being alive". At least I have several nurses that I during my 19 weeks stay in two hospitals will never forget. Thank you all.

Relocation finished

 Today the last load of old furniture left our home for the last 30 years in a horse wagon. We have tried to sell some of the furniture through the Norwegian market, but the interest for our inventory showed up to be Zero if we wanted money for the antique buffet, piano or bedroom items.
The consequence was then to give it away for free if the new owners could take costs to remove them. Then the interest exploded, and we saved lots of money not having to pay for removal.
Our new home is located even closer to the city centre and we have been relocated to our great satisfaction. Our urban lifestyle can continue. The apartment is only half the size of our old one and therefor no need for the old furniture. The address is still my Email if anybody want to be in touch.

Carine´s Blog

One of the nicest persons I met during my stay at Sunnaas was Carine. Her story can best be told by herself, and her blog PLUTSELIGRULLESTOL can give you an insight to the tremendous change it is for many young people that lives a "normal" life when they wake up in the morning and some hours later have all plans turned upside down. She uses Norwegian text, but I have tried to translate some of her own reflections about 2013 and from the accident on June 2013:
Although I could dance till dawn the night had to end. I was going to meet a student mate the day after to practice oral examination. I was not ready to quit dancing, so I danced down the stairs from the third floor. In bliss and with some vine, it ended terrifying, I stumbled. A small mistake and suddenly life was turned upside down, both figuratively and literally. I tripped over in the staircase and took me to the window on the landing. The window looked closed, but it had just blown again. Thus, the window went up and I plunged into the summer night from 6-7 meter above the ground.
2013 was suddenly not as I had imagined. Admittedly, I completed my education to Master. I did take an oral examination on Sunnaas. I was also married. The wedding was not near what I had planned, but it was an unbelievable nice day and the most important thing is that I got MY man. We did not go to Chicago, but Sunnaas. Today I am not on a beach in Thailand, but with my husband and new apartment Loren. I am rolling instead of walking.
If you want, and I recommend you to do so, go into her blog PLUTSELIGRULLESTOL and participate in her rehabilitation at Sunnaas.
