It stands still here.



































This picture was taken last year around this time.
Now we can't sit in the sun and enjoy because life is standing still over here.
I think it's about a month since I've posted on my blog.
From one day to another, my life has been totally turned upside down.
Because my love is diagnosed with stomach cancer.
On a totally unexpected way, we found out.
Terrible pain in back and leg which we first thought it was a hernia.
Meanwhile, my love stayed a week in hospital and was treated with radiation therapy.
Puncture of the liver were taken and showed that the metastases in the liver came from the stomach.
This type of cancer is not as common and because there are metastases in the liver and lympfen etc there is no treatment possible.The doctors give him a few more months.

It is terribly frustrating when you see your love in such pain and the medication is not working properly!
Or because you read in the package insert of medication that it so bad for your stomach.
Choose between two evils, every time.
I hope the therapy will be working and that a solution is found for the nerve pain in his leg.
So he can sit in the sun, weather can walk with Limuna and can fully enjoy a moment with his two children and me.

He is now at home wanted to get out of the hospital.
Our house is full of flowers and dear friends and family,neighbours help us where they can.
We have such lovely people around us!

Meanwhile, he regularly encourages me to continue what I'm doing.
What I find difficult but what I can understand.
This is the first step, the restart of my blog.
Sometimes with words and sometimes only images.

I'm running out of words so ...Have a nice week-end and enjoy! xxx Ingrid.

  7. Wat afschuwelijk Ingrid, ik had je al een tijdje gemist maar dacht dat je op vakantie was. Ik weet even niet goed wat ik schrijven moet behalve dan dat niemand ooit zo ziek zou mogen zijn, vooral niet degenen die we lief hebben. Om iemand waarvan je houdt zo te zien lijden en niet bij machte te zijn daar iets aan te doen is vreselijk.Bij gebrek aan beter wens ik jou en je familie heel veel kracht en liefde. Leef bij de dag en probeer van elk moment samen te genieten. En hoewel ik heel goed begrijp dat het moeilijk voor je is om te werken, ik denk dat het toch goed is om te proberen. Probeer je frustraties in je kunst te stoppen en de energie die je daaruit put te richten op je gezin.
    Jemig Ingrid, ik voel zo met je mee... x

    1. Hai lieve Janita, we leven inderdaad dag bij dag. Soms goede maar ook mindere.Ik heb bijna geen tijd om te werken...zo druk. Probeer ook een ritme te vinden waarin een stukje tijd zit voor mezelf maar dan ga ik toch niet naar het atelier,dat lukt me niet. Dankjewel..het geeft toch kracht je reactie. xxx Ingrid
