The following pages offer access to a diary on my diagnosis and treatment with cancer of the esophagus.
As a professional, I have studied health care systems "from the outside", as I have never been admitted to hospital or have never had a serious illness before. I don't know the health care system or hospitals "from the inside". That has changed in the past weeks and will be changing in the months to come.
As a cyberspace support for me, I installed a guestbook facility on all pages to enable friends and colleagues to feed back their thoughts and emotions, greetings and wishes. I followed the advice of a good friend of mine and called this facility "The Healing Circle". All contributions to the Healing Circle have been archived and are made available for the respective months January-March. You can access these pages via the navigation panel which is displayed at the bottom of each page.
The report is split into sections:
If you wish to comment on the issues, please use the "Healing Circle" guestbook, which is accessible via the following links:
Please accept that I won't be able to respond to comments individually. Thanks for your kind support - Eberhard.
