The talk with the UWV doctor yesterday was hard. Of course I had to tell everything and answer a lot of difficult questions. I was so glad Ron was there with me! Towards the end I burst into tears. I felt miserable, ashamed and sad. I don't know much yet. There will be a second talk, either with another doctor (for a second opinion to be declared 100 % unfit to work) or a work ability expert (to see what my possibilities are if I would be declared partially unfit). So I sit and wait...

This morning my mother had an appointment with the cardiologist again. She has to have surgery to replace the aorta valve. Some kind of ring will be placed behind the other valve to neutralize the leaking. The surgery will take place in the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis in Amsterdam, where she also got her bypasses 16 years ago. Next week we have an appointment with a lung specialist to see if she needs special care before, during or after the surgery. And then we wait... According to the list on the hospital website the waiting period is quite short though, only a few weeks.


  1. My prayers and best energies are still directed toward you both.

  2. Thanks! I really appreciate it!
