Weekly Report from Oslo May 29 – something special did happen.

What a week.
Monday morning started with a Golf Ball seize and shape swelling under my left elbow. From zero to really swollen in 2 hours. Then my lower left arm felt “sleepy”, so I called my Doctor.
- You must come at once.

I did
And it was bacterial, which might be very serious. 12 ml of inflamation was taken out, and I was given antibiothica and was told: If it would grew up again, you must call me, the doctor said.

Well, on Saturday, (My Doctors Office is closed during the Weekend) just before leaving for Anna’s youngest Brothers 60 year celeb Family Dinner, the swelling was back. Wow, it’s 4PM and we should meet my “best-man” before the Celebration Dinner  at 6:30 PM. 105 km away (67 miles). (Photos above taken Sunday evening)

So instead of driving straight ahead, we went to the emergency hostpital in Oslo.
Luckely, the antibiotica (3 times a Day) had worked, so all dangerous bacterias were gone. What a relief. Just a “normal” Student Elbowe, the Doctor said. In my Age. I felt flattered;-)
We left the Emergency Hospital at 5:45 PM.

Monday I’ll back to my Doctor for a new Check…

Here follows the good part of our weekend.
Visiting Anna’s Brother – a short 75 minutes drive East from Oslo, close to the Swedish border.
Special occassion: He had Family dinner for his 3x20 Years;.)

Sunday early afternoon we did visit my Best Man and his Wife. They live only a 2 minutes drive from Anna’s youngest Brother. What was supposed to be maximum one hour  visit – well, our Cats had to wait for some hours more for our return (but they were served enough food on Saturday).
Wonderful “girls” – right? In their 3x20 twenties +.
We have had lots of great moments together – from our kids were small kids, both in Norway and other Countries – Vacations together etc..

2011-05-29 Mystery Plant 
Back home in our Winter appartement, In our Balconny, we have discovered a strange plant. The Green one. Growing very fast, and seems to  be in full blossom very soon.
We have not planted it, nor have we seen anyone the like in our Neighbourhood.

I hope your elbow is better. Oh, I could just feel the pain. 8 years ago I had surgery that cause swelling much like that.
I love the picture of Leander! He is getting so big, and even more handsome!!!

OUCH! That hurts...just the sight of it, Tor. So glad you were able to get it taken care of but what a pain! You still got to see the family and do what you wanted, which is what's important. Good for you. And I agree...that little Leander is becoming such a handsome little boy!!!

I hope the elbow-golfball has not come back any more...!

Very nice weekend you had I must say - birthday party and all :-P

I have no idea what the plants name is, looks like some kind of weed anyway in my eyes...

Leander is such a charming boy :-)

Your elbow did look painful. Looking at your pictures I can feel the nice cool weather – we are supposed to get to 96 F (36 C) by Wednesday here – I hope it won’t be as warm for you when you go to Chicago and I also hope you won’t have the trouble we had in Chicago last month – we missed our connecting plane to Paris and they lost our luggage! Your little grandson is a darling.

I hope you will be totally ok with your arm! Sounds you had a such good time by Anna's family! Pierre had a chirurgical intervention a week ago for a kyste in his back ! He should come back at work on sunday! Marvelous pictures!
