Rasmus – The Medical Enigma
October 9, 2012 § 4 Comments
Rasmus has been in and out of the hospital for as long as I can remember. He’s kind of large for a rodent, he doesn’t say much, but he’s a likable fellow. For the last three years I have photographed him in all around the hospital, but the doctors don’t seem to find out what’s wrong with him. He’s had blood tests, bone scintigraphy and a PET-scan. He’s had a cardiac catheterization and high-dose chemotherapy. A few months ago he even underwent craniofacial surgery. What’s even worse is he’ll probably have to go through a bunch of other procedures in the years to come, and no one will get any wiser.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Rasmus (“mus” means mouse in Norwegian) is Oslo University Hospital’s mascot for children, and the star of numerous info leaflets, I’d be really worried.
