To Sahlgrenska University Hospital

Today I went to the hospital to stay overnight for the examination early tomorrow under general anesthesia. I was picked up by a taxi at 2:30 PM. The driver was from Iraq and talked not so good swedish but it was ok, we understood each other and he was very kind. We arrived at Sahlgrenska about 5:15 PM. I checked in to women’s clinic and I was given a room with 2 beds but I was alone. I tried to take a nap but i couldn’t sleep. I got evening meal at about 7:00 PM, this was not so much so I ate the rest of my chocolates and peanuts I bought when we stopped for gasoline on our way here.

Later in the evening I felt like having a fever and a nurse took my temperature, I had 38.1°C. They checked my blood and I left urine samples and they found out I had bacteria in the urine, that I had urinary tracts inflammation. I got antibiotics and I was monitored all the evening. It felt so comforting that I was already at the hospital when things like this arises.

I stayed at room 12 on the 3rd floor with this view on my window…it’s nice weather today, I even had my window open for a fresher air. 

I had a little chat with my family and good friends before I went to sleep.

I am a swedish citizen with asian origin, lives in Sweden, entrepreneur, accountant, fashion designer, dressmaker, professional interpreter and translator and from year 2014, I also became a local politician with some assignments from the local government. I moved to Sweden after marriage with a Swedish national in 1986. Two years later we got a son followed by a daughter after 21 months. Satisfied with life in fact, I guess I got all I wished for, it feels I have everything. Being married is not just a bed of roses, the roses have thorns also and you can get it at times but we’ve always been doing pretty good. Kinder and better husband I do not think I can get, everyone has their flaws and life becomes easier if you can accept them. I’m not a perfect person either. I became a grandmother quite young, only 45 years old, was a little skeptical at first but then I loved to be one. Now I am already a grandmother of two, a boy and a girl of 20 months between them, such a great feeling, it feels like it was a replay of my life. When I have both of them at home, it feels like I was young again and is the mother of small children. I can not explain but so damn good it is. When I moved to Sweden I knew nothing about the country, but now it feels like I’ve always lived here. I speak Swedish better than my native language, better in Swedish grammar than my husband, it may sound strange but it’s true. I dream even in Swedish. I hang out with many Swedes, have worked and still working in Swedish companies. I go to the Swedish church though I am a Roman Catholic. We believe in the same God anyway. I’ve adapted pretty well in Swedish society. I think I have to adjust to that country I moved to, not the country or its citizens to adapt to me. Sweden has no responsibility whatsoever that I wanted to move here so I could not demand anything else, but now a citizen, I think I have the right as any other native Swedes. I pay taxes and do my duties as a citizen. I think I am a good role model and a loyal citizen and can fight for my new country.
