Happy Birthday John!

It is my husband’s 47th birthday today (3 days after my birthday). We do not have any big plans on our birthdays. We are just going to stay home and have dinner together.
Just a few weeks ago, we found out that John has cancer. (Please do not ask me to elaborate on this because I am not a medical person. ) It is not the agressive type of cancer, though. It is can be treated but he has to go through chemotherapy and another operation. We were told what to expect and what to do when he gets side effects from the cure. We are very hopeful that he would be cancer free in 6 months. Despite of the difficulties he is going through physically, he tries his best to show us that he is going to conquer this. Today, we shaved his head because his hair is starting to fall off but we had fun instead of feeling depressed about it.

All photos were taken at Radiumhospitalet (Cancer Center). The staff in the hospital are superb! I just wish that the government would put more funding for the facilities of this hospital. Patients should not share room in this hospital. I think that it does not boost the morale of a patient if he sees what his room mate is going through and some handicap facilities are not working.
