Good morning! I am up quite early today. The alarm went off at 07.00. And this is early for me nowadays. Since I got sick it has gotten a problem to go out of bed too early. The alarm can go off but my body won’t just move. It’s stiff and in pain. It’s not all mornings but more common than not common. So like … Continue reading Early mornings, not so much

You have never ever shown any signs though of being affected by that. Born 4 weeks early and left with your very proud grand mother after only 48 hours while I got treatment on another hospital. You are strong, … Continue reading Sylvia 2 years!
