The September Issue...
...of this particular blog is a little belated, I'm afraid. Bloggers everywhere are long past this month's fashion magazine issues and busy commenting on NY Fashion week, already looking forward to next summer's trends. I, on the other hand, am left here wondering whether there'll be a next summer for me at all.
Turns out my new doctors no longer think I've got a completely new and curable type of cancer, but rather that I was misdiagnosed back in 2007, and in fact had a way more aggressive and rare type of cancer than I was treated for. A cancer that now has recurred and spread. While it's been more than a month since I had the last surgery, the tests aren't finished just yet. Apparently, it takes a while for them to be able to conclude with certainity.
In the meantime I've just been so exhausted from everything hospital wise, I needed a blogcation. From the comments on previous posts I see there are awards, challenges and other things that needed replies from me. A response I just lacked the energy to give. I'm sure I've missed out on a lot of interesting or important events going on in your lives that you have been blogging about, and it's going to take me a while to be able to catch up. I'll give it a try, though.
Now, here in Oslo fall has definitely arrived. My summer wardrobe is on it's way back into winter storage, and my fall wardrobe has gradually taken over my closet. All seasons have their charm, this one too. However, I can't seem to shake the feeling of melancholy when I see my summer flowers hanging on for dear life, blooming one last time before it's all gone.
I'm going to miss summer.
