Oh no, that sounds painful
I hope she is well soon, but a herniated disc is often a longer issue...

Crown prince Haakon met president Sauli Niinistö and his wife Jenni Haukio at president's residence Mäntyniemi. The office of the president tells that president Niinistö has had a small operation and therefore he has a haematoma in his eye.

On Wednesday Haakon visited at the Kallio school. First, Haakon arrived in the Great Hall, where the students sang to him and the principal made ​​a speech. After this, Haakon took part in a language class, where they learned how to buy at the market. Haakon was first at the back of the room, but he proceeded to sit in front at teacher's desk to be able to track the hours better. Haakon also visited at the class of immigrants, wrote in the guestbook and shook hands with students in the yard.

And at the Aalto University, which was established on January 1, 2010 in the merger of the Helsinki University of Technology, the Helsinki School of Economics, and the University of Art and Design Helsinki. The University aims to create a new science and arts community by bringing together three existing universities of technology, economics and art. Haakon was so interested in the university that he stayed longer than it was planned.
