A bonus, a surprise! (And my experience with Norwegian healthcare)

We’re getting an unexpected treat…

Mom and me at the ‘pink fountain’ in Sandefjord
during her last visit

Next week we’ll get a ‘bonus visit’ from my (Jenn’s) mom. We didn’t expect to be seeing her again until we visit the states next year.

But due to a little ‘medical surprise’, she is coming to help out for a few days.

I’m having surgery next week. But while the thought of having a hysterectomy isn’t exciting, there are much worse things I could be facing. And having mom here to help out – and to see our city during the holidays – makes it much more bearable!

In the grand scheme of things, it isn’t so bad. I’ve been very pleased with the Norwegian health care system so far. And on December 3, I will have surgery and will then hopefully be able to put all of this latest ‘adventure’ behind me.

That also explains part of why I haven’t been so active on the blog, or with life in general. I’ve spent lots of time at appointments and having tests run. And my energy level has been pretty low as well. So I look forward to getting back to normal activities and normal life!

  1. Praying for you, Jenn! Keep us posted for specific prayer needs. Right now I'm praying for peace of mind, a successful surgery, and quick healing. Let me know if there are others!

  2. Ohhh. I had a hysterectomy right before we were supposed to head to Vancouver…and I have never felt better!! I will be lifting you up, asking for peace and comfort and fast healing. Thankful your mama is coming: she will be a HUGE blessing to you!
