I'm back in Norway for a week to spend some time with my family. My dad has been getting increasingly sick, so it felt kinda urgent. He is in a lot of pain, and he has lost feeling in parts of his face (cancer cells "smothering" nerves). He's being given more and more painkillers though, so at least he can "walk" again. For a while he couldn't even do that because his legs hurt so bad. He looks a lot thinner, because his muscles aren't really getting any stumilation. And that again makes him look older.

Today we (= Johanne and mom) cut his hair cuz the chemo will make him lose it soon anyway. Sortof to get used to it first. It looks good though! I think he looks like John Locke from LOST :P

Thank you :)

I was thinking the other day that I miss chatting with you. I'm glad you're updating your journal again.

I hope that everything works out with your father and man that bathroom (from the slight glances of it that I got) looks pretty much like my bathroom in stuttgart
2nd-Aug-2006 04:29 pm (UTC)
It's a really nice bathroom. Mom mom works with that kind of stuff, so we're lucky like that.

Those are some great photos Markus, and yes, the last one is amazing. Your father's eyes say it all, not to mention the fact that they are a a beautiful bluish green color. Anyway, this is my favorite picture. It's so touching and endearing.

Thanks :)

His eye color is actually more blue, but the lighting in the room was a bit strange.
