Lang zullen we leven – Long shall we live

On Tuesday June 12, we will have been married for 9 years.

When last Tuesday chemo wasn’t an option because of the blood counts, Dr. Tozer (our oncologist) suggested that June 12th would be the next day. Mendelt then said that we would be 9 years married that day. Dr. Tozer then insisted that we spent the day together and come back on the Wednesday instead of Tuesday. He said he is “not going to ruin our anniversary”.

Naturally this anniversary comes with different emotions that the other 8 brought. Mem and Heit (Mendelt’s parents) are going to have our kids for the day and we are going to take the day to remember, laugh, dream and pray.

Peace and love.
