Since last writing I have endured the moderate full body hyperthermia which kept my body temperature at 39.8 degrees for 2 hours whilst having antioxidant infusions. I tried to imagine I was laying in a hammock on a tropical island, waiting for my mojito! Whilst I was having this treatment Jo arrived from KL and was waiting for me just outside the hyperthermia area. So it was a lovely surprise when I walked out and it was really great having her here.
On Tuesday afternoon we walked into the nearest town along a small track in the countryside, with Sylvia who is one of the patients from the UK. She was bought up in Brighton, East Sussex, just a few miles from my childhood home. We had a nice afternoon in Nidda and ended up at a restaurant sitting outside in the town square having a fabulous German meal for dinner.
The next day after treatments, we took a bus excursion into Frankfurt where we had a couple of hours to look around the shopping area. There was an Italian festival on and it was nice to get out of the clinic again for the afternoon.
A group of us walked into Nidda again yesterday afternoon for a coffee, it is a lovely walk especially when the weather is warm and sunny. Jo left today and I was sad to see her leave, she has been a wonderful help this week and it has been great to have her company. I do miss someone to do my washing, ironing and juicing now!
Whilst she was here I moved into a guest house which is only a short stroll from the clinic and I shall remain here now until I leave. The daily routine at the clinic is busy with various treatments, infusions, tests, and consultations so I look forward to returning here each night after dinner and chilling out!
Here are some photos of the Herzog Clinic, Bad Salzhausen, and my visit to Nidda with Jo and Sylvia. I will try to update again soon....
