Fifth week of treatment

On monday, taxi picked me up from home at 8:05 AM and arrived at Sahlgrenska University Hospital at 10:30. I registered at oncoligal Ward and met my doctor at 11:00.

My doctor told me that my body is responding properly with the treatment and that magnet x-ray last week shows a possitive result, the tumor is shrinking. That was a very good news. I told my husband and he was very happy and so with the whole family. The only thing is I have difficulty with all the side effects of the treatment like diarrea, nausea, no appetite but I just feel I need to eat although I get stomach ache when eating or drinking. I just feel a lot of uncomfort right now and I feel so weak. I just would like to lay down and sleep.
Tuesday radiation was not so complicated although it was 30 minutes beyond scheduled time. I came back to the hotel too late for dinner that the food was almost cold.
Wednesday radiation was late in the afternoon but it was ok. I came back to the hotel just in time for dinner. Later on in the evening came my friend who lives in Kungsbacka and she had cakes with her. We had a cup of coffee in my room and ate the cake she had with her.  
Thursday radiation was just ok.

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.
