and many young children
suffering and dying from DIPG,
cause me struggling,

It’s a quiet Sunday afternoon, as usual in Karlsruhe, Germany. Me and Tobias took a short walk.
Me: Do you feel blessed or cursed?

One evening last week on the sofa:
Me: Tobi, are you aware of my limited time?
Tobias: Yes… and I’m scared. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
Tobias: I am aware of the circumstances of dipg. There’s no magic pill to cure it. Your treatments now are to prolong your survival time with the highest possible quality of life.

Good bye summer, hello autumn.
Titien: “Our chili bush looks cold, we should move it inside”.
Tobi: “Ok, then I’ll move it to the bedroom”
Titien: “No way, Jose! Move it to the living room”!
Tobi: “It needs to be relatively cold in winter and still nights light. Our bedroom has a big window with morning sunlight and we never heat it.”
Titien: “ok execute to bedroom then”.
