After Control

Today I was scheduled to meet my head doctor…

I like her, she is very caring like a doctor should be. Of all the doctors who have treated and examined me, she is the best. She is also a kind of specialist and lead the cancer research team at Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Have I mentioned that Sahlgrenska Univ. Hospital is one of the biggest and best hospitals in Europe? Well, summarizing the treatment I got so far, I am so lucky to have under the hands of the best doctors in Sweden or perhaps in the world. I’m satisfied so far.
My good friend followed me to the hospital, we were pick up by a taxi from home and arrived at the hospital around 2:30 PM. I registered to the Oncological ward and I was fetch by my doctor at 3:00 PM. She checked me internally and she said everything seems to be all right. I was at her recipiency about half an hour talking about my recovery and such. It’s so good and comforting to talk to her. I am also scheduled to have another biopsy on the 2nd of March.
After the check up, I and my friend went to the coffee shop while waiting for our good friend to arrive after work. We went further to Gothenburg’s WOK Restaurant about 6 km from the hospital. At 7:30 PM our friend drove us back to the hospital where the taxi picked us up. It was a very nice lady chauffeur.  We arrived home around 11:00 PM.

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.
