Merry X-Mas 2008December 26, 2008
I never thought that I would live to see Christmas again. But I do, and yes we celebrated it per my request with a dinner last week in a fine restaurant (with the six of us) and by having a great Christmas lunch today (we were invited by my parents): Metzo. We had a great time, on both Sunday and today. Thanks mom and dad! You showed me how wonderful Christmas can be!
I’ve been “Off the air” for a few weeks for no good reason actually. My wound has healed well (final check next week Friday) after 6 months of continuous infections. I went to the Pedicure for the second time to have my toe nails treated (I especially appreciate the feet massage). We’re in the process of terminating our companies (yes again, but this time it is final unfortunately). Erik Jan is helping us with that.
Marcus (I have no photo from him but I’m working on it) is still helping us with our telephone /fax /internet system but is seems to be such a bastard of a setup that even Marcus and Erik Jan (who offered to look at it) couldn’t make bananas of it.
Frits (Meijer) paid us a visit to see with own eyes that I”m doing (rather) well. As always we had a lot of fun but soon I had to send him away because I became too tired.
Danielle came to see us in the revalidation centre. I was still covered in sweat from a game of badminton with my therapist (I like to play badminton but am not good at it, my condition is also poor). She (Danielle) told us that she was sick at home also (get well soon Danielle!).
Because Monling went shopping while I was in the RCA I asked my mom and dad to come to the revalidation centre last Monday. Monling had bought “appelflappen” for us that we (especially my father) liked very much. We talked a lot until my next therapy started.
Later that day Marcus accompanied us to a trial of a play performed (each year) by staff of the RCA. I was specially invited by my psychologist and physiotherapist. We had to laugh because it was a weird play, the play you would expect from the infamous John Lanting. Afterwards we went to an Indonesian restaurant just across the street: if I had been Johannes van Dam I would have given a 5 because of the lousy quality.
As you can see I’ve made good use of my week off but now I’m knackered. I’m so tired that you will have to do without the homemade “Merry Christmas and a Happy 2009” card. Those of you that send me a card: a big kiss or hug for doing so!!! A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year all of you!!
