Biopsy

We are going to the Hospital today. The taxi picked us up at 7:20 AM and arrived around 10:00.
Registered at the oncological ward and my nurse prepared me for the biopsy, putting a needle in my arm so they could give me any medication necessary. I was brought to the X-ray ward and I was given a lot of medicine among others morfin that made me feel so high. The doctor took some samples of the tumor in my lungs and stuck needles that hurt so much that I don’t even remember how many times she did. Both my eyes and nose were running because of terrible pain, I couldn’t even breath deeply after that I thought I would die. After a while I was moved to the oncological ward again after half an hour. The trip with the rolling bed took maybe 3-5 minutes, it was on the other building but we took the cellar . I took a rest for a while and then they took me to another x-ray to check if my lungs was alright after the biopsy and it was, so we went home by a taxi. Almost 3 hours travel. It’s been a long day.

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.
