Tumbling.....

And just as we thought the reason was found for Bram's healthproblems....it is all tumbling again....
In the Radboud hospital we visited yesterday they found out that the Lym wasn't active...disapponting...

After talks, tests and some research they are thinking of problems in the veins in his brain. More research in 2 weeks time when we have to go back to Nijmegen again.

It is not an easy proces we are in at the moment. We want to know the reason, but the outcome can be hard to deal with...

It is weekend now...time to think, talk and be silent...

Meeting up with The Boys....But first something Important...

Just before I had the plan of writing a blog about the Great Meeting Up with Arne & Carlos (the 2 famous Julekuler-Boys from Norway) we got a telephonecall from our doctor. The results from Bram's bloodtests show that he has the Lyme Disease and that his Vitamin D is very Low. That might explain a lot from his current situation. Tomorrow we have an appointment in the Radboud Hospital in Nijmegen - we had asked for a fresh vieuw on things last week and got a very quick appointment - and this bloodtest- result might speed up the things. I know it can't be cured, but hopefully they can do something so that might feel a bit better than he is now..

Relief in a way, but I suddenly felt so out of balance this afternoon. Tears were running and I guess it is a reaction on all the months of uncertainty and the frustration that nothing was found.

But the title of this blog also is: Meeting up with The Boys..and by "Boys" I mean: Arne & Carlos. They have started the big kniting-trend: JuleKuler..and their Book looks so inviting to start knitting....It is a Big Hit all around the Globe...

Last Sunday I first met up in Amsterdam with my Knittingfriends Yvonne, Dagmar and Sandra for coffee and a delicious Lemon Tartelette at Gebr. Niemeijer.Thereafter we went to the Departmentstore "De Bijenkorf" to met up with Arne & Carlos for booksigning and knitting ofcourse.
We have had a very funny afternoon. I guess it was expected that not many people would come, but the reality was that it was very busy. We immediately took a big table, started knitting, talking and laughing.
We more or less felt kind of Groupies. After a while they came to our table and we found out that they are really very nice anbd friendly.
My book was signed...
We saw them knitting....
They showed the latest Design for World Aids Day...
We knitted ofcourse...
We saw them talking...behind a Huge JuleKuluer
I saw the bag and asked how I could purchase one....
I gave them my adress and they promised me to send one...
But alsmost at the end...I got the one from Arne...
A bit of Jealousy appeared....I can imagine...
And NO...this one is NOT FOR SALE.
I donated 3 Balls for Serious Request and I hope they make a lot of Money...

So.. WE HAD A BALL!!!!
And more Balls will come....
