Vil reworked plenty of BLOG Posts, but he is still at the beginning. For now, you can read parts of our story in this BLOG.

I should update this BLOG more often because so many things happened last days. We moved to a new place.

It’s now two months and still no reply from the Netherlands and no money from the unemployment office. My landlady and her partner are literally bangging on my door and demanding money.

I need to attend a rehabilitation program. There I learned what and how to eat and how to gain weight without hurting myself. Three weeks of lessons, extra care, presentations, and additionally a mixture of swimming pool, massage, gymnastics or yoga, good food.
Well, well, well… The good news. The”re-wiring” worked. My digestive system seems to completely start up and slowly I can eat a little. Unfortunately, there is still the “occasional” nausea, but it gets better. I lost plenty of weight and I was never a big guy, more tall and skinny and now I am a… Read more Have a nice day!
It’s good to be home, but it’s not easy. I am exhausted, every task lasts longer and I am already happy when I am able to walk Indy to the second bench. I never imagined that it will be so hard to arrange life, doing the dishes or just get some bread. Except for one… Read more The recovery process

After ten days they removed the “nose-tube” and I got a little freedom back. Still connected to a “ZVK” (Zentraler Venen Katheter) in my neck. Sensors for my heart rate and …
I am still at the ICU and I realize that the recovery process will last longer than expected, but there is hope because the recovery process improves a little bit day by day. No more heavy pain medication needed, the sleep is ok and I had my first successful visit to the loo for days.… Read more As time goes by
Today my doctor received the lab results and she rushed into my room to tell me the good news. They checked some of the removed tissue because they suspected cancerous cells, but fortunately there weren’t. “It’s your second birthday today. Mark the date.” The doctor smiled at me, tapped my shoulder and rushed out of… Read more Lab Results
