Visit of Marie & Anders - with me in hospital...

Marie & Anders - Filip's parents in law - arrived in the evening of Wedneday the 5th and we went to Larnaca to pick them up. We had some wine and sandwiches in the "velvet, dark evening. After breakfast on Thursday we made a tour in the suroundings of Paphos and had a late lunch.

By then I started to get stomach pain and it went worse and worse - and at nine o'clock in the evening the pain was unbearable so I asked Sven to phone an ambulans - and although this is Cyprus it arrived within 10 minutes. After tests taken in a big hurry they found that I had a big whole on the duodenum and at 23.00 I was put to sleep for an emergency surgery. I woke up with four tubes from different parts of my body and the doctor told me that if I had waited a couple of hours later he was not sure that they had been able to save me..... Without any drinks - and of course no food - they took away the tubes after three days and I was allowed to drink water and have some teastless soupe. The doctors said that my recovery has been extremely fast - they called me a VIKING - and if Sven promised to take care of me to 100 % I was allowed to go home yesterday afternoon - i.e Tuesday the 10th but must be back Friday and Monday for check ups - and to remove the more than 20 stiches. But I am still alive!

The show must go on so Sven took our friends to the very famous Opera Festival, to swim in the Mediterranean, visiting Aphrodite's bath and enjoying the warm nights in Olympus Village. They left us the day before I arrived home........
