We've had rain and/or snow for a month straight. Today sun happened. I can't even begin explaining how much that really means.

Frida, my youngest niece, is in hospital. She has a hole in her little heart, but they believe this will mend itself in time and shouldn't give her any issues in her life until, maybe, when she's an old lady. What IS a bit more scary, is that they believe she has hyper insulinism. Yeah, I'm not quite sure how to explain what that is, but basically it's diabetes-opposite. Her body produces way too much insulin (as opposed to ordinary diabetes where a person produces too little). Results seem to be the same, her bloodsugar levels reach dangerously low. They have been in hospital with her for two weeks, now and they are on the last few tests of finding a diet and medicines that helps. We all hope that she isn't diagnosed with the more dangerous type, which means she'll need to go to Paris for an operation. Keep your fingers crossed.

We've been watching their dog, Vera. Two dogs is soo much more work than one dog. Just sayin'...

Vera trying to do her business in the snow. She wants you to know that is not easy!

Mostly they're good friends. What they want to do, is to play-fight all the time, until they drop dead. We've reached an understanding. No playing indoor. It works. Most of the time...

There is some jealousy, but as you can see, there's plenty room on the sofa for everybody


  1. Happy puppies!

    I'm sorry to hear about your neice, sending good thoughts and love your way

  2. Praying for you and your niece. We've been fighting our own version of cold and gloom, and my Internet went out. Sun and Internet back today. :)

  3. Thank you. Runar's parents are there now, to relieve the young parents. Turns out she needs several more test. These tests involve 10 hours without food for little Frida. I can't even imagine what a toll that must be on all parties =(

    Glad to hear you got internet back.

    The sunshine only happened that one day. We're back to rain/hail/sleet/snow now
