Blind gut

Several days ago I went thru a smaller nightmare. My appendix was infected on my way home from Denmark. I think stress was one factor. Before I realized what it was I went to a birthday party and ate lots of good food, only that I didn’t keep it. Started to think It was bad food, or too much coffee. No sleep. Next morning I went to my grandmothers 86 years birthday and my dads brother was there, he’s a doctor. I ask him what it could be and he thought it might be the tummy dummy (before I knew the English word I used that one) then my dads sister she’s into foot therapy and started to give me some very very painfull massage – she had a very different school from her brother the doctor.

Soon my temperature went up and off I went to the hospital. Now I’m still here but without my blind gut. Life is soo much better now. :) the picture here is taken with the iPhone and by my little brother Per. Picture was taken with lots of painkillers in me. :)

Tomorrow I’ll be on my way home and can start to look at some pictures from the Danish wedding – I know there are some really really nice ones. You’ll see.

    Yes, get well fast. Any thoughts on whether Sigma may adopt the new micro four/thirds standard in a DP1-like body? That would be amazing!

    Hi Carl,

    Well, I am sorry for your illness, and glad it is taken care of.

    Though sounds like some of your family to be a little careful of ;).

    Poor fellow lying there… get well soon, and know you will.

    Hi to Linn, still practically in Finland…!


  9. Thank you guys so so so much for your support!! I’m still in hospital and they’re all very very kind to me. The room i’m in includes three other men and we’re having a very great time together. Althought quite painful. :)

    Hi Carl,

    Just sending you some sunshine as we seem to have gotten a little extra over here this week ;).

    The second and so day is always the most uncomfortable – you will feel better soon. Your insides not happy when they have been poked around…

    I guess you have things to look forward to pretty soon. Pretty one ;).

    Take good care, and your 4-man room makes me think somehow of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, who wrote so many wonderful stories no matter what anyone thought of his politics. I used to read them in the nights in Korea.

    Best, Carl,
    going for some sun ;) actually the university, but will get some on the way.

    Well, Carl, nice to see and hear you on your road to recovery from what must have been very, very painful.

    Funny, that in the Dutch language, it is also known as “blind gut”, as in “blinde darm”.

    Take care and sincere regards, Jim Roelofs

    Och det ska du vara väldigt glad över, slipper du oroa dig för att konstiga smärtor kan vara den iallafall.

    Skönt att du mår bättre, men glöm inte ta en paus ibland.

  13. Jäpp! Det är superskönt att ha blivit av med den! OCH jag kan dricka ohämmat med kaffe igen! :D
