Pity me!!

Mum and I came home for the weekend last night…finally!!

All the Danes were going home this weekend, 7 patients and 6 companions, 13 in all.
After checking out, we kept the hotel rooms this time though, we left the hotel at 3pm, and arrived at the airport at 4pm. Got our tickets and checked in and went to the lounge for a couple of hours relaxing, having food and beverages.
At 6.20 pm, half an hour before the plane left our nightmare began…..The flight got cancelled without reason!!!

So we had to walk through the entire airport to get to the Arrival aria and find the British Airways office. When we arrived 13 other passengers were already screaming at the three poor guys behind the counter. One offers to help us as we are a group, and get our boarding passes and finds another flight for us.
Two choices: Split up and travel Saturday via Copenhagen to Aalborg or go now and fly to Bilund, which is in the other end of Denmark from where I live, and go by taxi to Aalborg!!!
And then my fellow travellers showed what they were made of!!! They screamed and shouted, in Danish and poor English, at the poor guy!! I think that the only ones trying to keep calm was HanneMarie, mum and me….I tried to reason with them and told them that the most important thing was getting home, and after some arguing I got them to agree. So I told the poor man that we would go to Bilund. He got us tickets to the other plane, found our luggage, offered water bottles that no one wanted and showed us to check in. The plane was leaving at 8.35 pm. So we ran to the gate and got to the plane and found our seats…all over the plane.
The plane was then full with 21 new passengers so there were not enough sandwiches for all of us.
The first 7 rows got some, and I was at 8 and mum at 11!! But we got some coke;)
We arrived at Bilund at 10 in the evening, and found the taxies waiting for us. Then a two hours ride to Aalborg and we were home 15 minutes past midnight!! We had called dad so he was there to pick us up…I was so tired when I got home;)

I am really surprised how some of the others were reacting!! Screaming and complaining at everyone..I know we are not well, but that is no reason for that kind of behaviour!!

My burns are getting worse by now….The skin is getting black and peels of, leaving a red sore area instead. It hurts a lot but the saltwater and bandages helps.
And my breast is really red and warm all the time, but it is not hurting…

But now I have 12 treatments left and that is just good….I am getting better!!!!!

Hey, sweetie.

I'm really sorry you went through so much trouble to get home.
And more so because of the pain you have to suffer.

But soon everything will be over and that's something you can look forward too. You are a strong woman and I admire you for that.

Try and get soem rest okay? You must be tired.

+hugs tight+

Thank you so much for your kind words, hon.

Yeah, when the treatment is over I can start to recover and get my strength back;)

That's terrible you had to go through all that to get home, especially when you weren't feeling good. Get plenty of rest hun, and not too much longer until your treatments are finished and then you can really recover.

*hugs and kisses*

I look forward to the day I can start to recover and all this will be over.

♥big kisses♥

Hey hon,
Sorry to hear about all of that drama. I'm glad you could act as the voice of reason though all of that. Will you get to come home again after this or is this your last trip home before the end of your treatment?

Hiya hon,

I hate dramas like that, I thought the most importent thing was that we were getting home...it took four hours longer, but we got home..

I´ll come home next weekend, and then spend the last weekend in Norway, cause I´ll be finally going home Tuesday the 22..

My Dear Kastanje Honey,
I so sorry you had a bad time to come back home, that really sucks, but you're right that poor guy didn't deserve people screaming at him like that and in the end it won't help anyone -_-
I'm just happy you did come back home and I hope you succeed to rest a little.
I'm sorry the burns are getting worst but you are right! è_é Only 12 treatments left!!!

♥Love you♥

Man, I hate when they do that! It's so annoying, especially when they don't give you a reason.
Hope you feel much better soon!
*sends you chocolate*

Thanks honey, I just adore chocolate;)

I´ll be getting better in a couple of months the doctor says, so I believe that.
