Malin-it's so great to hear from you ;D  More than that is that you are living your dreams.  May your bumps in the road continue to get smaller.  I'm sure hospital stay was a bit scary with all you've been through, but 3 days is nothing compared to past.  I hope they get a handle on the recurrent infections soon, you deserve a long time away from hospitals!  My summer has been the best in awhile -have put about 1100 miles on my motorcycle-love the feeling of freedom and am so grateful my husband pushed me to get my own.  I really can't wait to hear your creations and I don't even know what genre you are working on, please let us know where we might be able to listen.  Stay amazing!!!!  Cheers-A

Hi Malin,

Congratulations with the release of your album/single! It is always good to fulfill your goals and dreams in life as life too short and should enjoy what you are by doing in life doing something you know you are good at doing.

Hope your recovery continues to improve and have no more infections and setbacks and can enjoy the autumn doing what you are good at doing.

I'm so sorry - that's a very tough setback when things have been going so well recently. I'm glad your fighting spirit saw you through and you're starting to feel better.

I hope that you're able to leave the hospital and get back to your music very soon.

Malin

I am so sorry to read that you are struggling with infection again. I had seen your post a few weeks ago saying how much you were moving forwards but was alerted to your recent bout of infection by one of my friends on here. I just want to send you my love and best wishes for a speedy recovery. You have such determination in all of this and you will fight through again.li know Malin is stronger than the infections, sleep when you need to and remember how much we are all behind you.  Sending you big hugs
