A sad, sad story

A little while ago, I wrote about a close acquaintance of mine, who was affected by blood clots in his leg. He lost his leg, but after some time at the hospital, things started to look brighter.

He came home from hospital. He was about to learn to use an artificial leg.

There had to be taken further tests, and therefore he had to temporarily stop taking blood pressure lowering medication. That was a mistake! Shortly after, he was hit by a new blood clot, this time in the brain. Ever since it happened, he has remained in hospital, while family and friends was hoping the best and fearing the worst.

– He died today.


For two days, it has been poring down non-stop. It was like the massive rain during a thunderstorm – all day long. Yesterday we got twice the amount of water than we normally get in a whole month. But the rain has stopped now, and the sun is about to burn away the rest of the clouds.
