I have been to Sahlgrenska University hospital for a magnet chest x-ray and a genecologist check up/control with my doctor today.
I couldn’t sleep well last night, I was afraid I would oversleep. I woke up every other hour, I felt very unconfortable. I get up before 6:00 AM and prepared myself and ate an early breakfast. The taxi would pick me up at 7:25 but I was already prepared at 7. The taxi came on time and started our travel right away and reached Sahlgrenska around 10:00, was scheduled for the magnet x-ray at 11:00 but I guess I was called already 10 minutes before. I was given a locker for my things and changed to hospital suit. I was put in a CT scanner for about half an hour.

this is a new model
I went thereafter to the restaurant and ate my lunch alone.
At 1:30 PM I went to the oncological ward to have an after control with one of my doctors. I’ve waited until he came to call me at 2 and finished with the examination routine control at 3:30. I finally find out the stage of my cancer which had been a puzzle to me since I never asked about it earlier…
It is stage 2B which means more than 4 cm and it has spread to the upper part of the vagina and on the right side even near to the urinary tracts (refer to cancer stages below).
Waiting now for my friend for a meeting before I go home. Hope she’ll be here soon.
Finally home around 8:00 PM.
Cervical Cancer Stages
The stage of cervical cancer refers to the extent to which it has spread. Stage 0 means that the cancer cells are found on the surface of the cervix, and stage I means the cancer is localized to the cervix. Spread to the upper part of the vagina signals a stage II cancer. Stage III tumors extent to the lower vagina, and in Stage IV, the tumor has spread to the bladder or rectum, or to distant sites in the body.

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.
