Ahh! A moment of euphoria seeing myself on TV! I was on ‘The One Show’ last week talking about my experience with organ donation, how great I feel and honoured to have been given a second chance of life. It was also my first liver transplant anniversary last weekend, so I celebrated it as a […]Read More 15.03.19 – Liver-versary
Last weekend was spent at home ‘relaxing’ and recharging for this week. It’s not easy for me to relax, sit down and just stop. I find it quite challenging as my mind is constantly thinking about so much. Distraction is my best method of avoiding overthinking. Questions go through my head like, ‘Am I enough?’, […]Read More 25.02.19 – My Mind Wonders..
I’ve asked to increase my hours again by an extra hour a day. I’m managing to keep up with help of short breaks when I can. I still rely on a lot of sleep. I got home after an early shift on Monday, fell asleep on the sofa for an hour and still managed to […]Read More 20.02.19 – Keep Pushing On
I’m feeling lazy this week. I’ve got no motivation and on my days off I’m waking up mid morning. Oops! I hope my dad doesn’t read this! I can’t shake the idea from my head that he’s training for the London marathon at his age, so that’s making me feel even more lazy. I’m not […]Read More 16.01.19 – Lazy Bones
I’m sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. As usual it’s been busy over Xmas and new year with friends and family. It’s been great! One of the best times I’ve had since I can remember but I put that down to feeling good. I’ve been back to work since and doing alright. […]Read More 13.01.19 – New Year, New Goals
I’m keeping my fingers crossed to be discharged today. I’ve just seen the Dr and if I feel well enough, they can let me go home! Woohooo! I have so many presents to wrap and organise ready for when I go home on Monday. My flat mate has been collecting my parcels from the concierge […]Read More 22.12.18 – Home Today
I’m back in my second home, the hospital. I spend so much time in them either working, visiting or as a patient. This time I’m a patient again. It’s nothing to worry about, as I’ve only got an infection which is easily treated. I’ve been here since Sunday morning and having IV antibiotics for 5 […]Read More 18.12.18 – Cholangitis
She’s had her SECOND transplant! I was so happy to see her doing so well when I went to visit her in Critical Care. It was so odd to see it all from a different perspective, but at the same time it was fascinating. She was clearly in another world after all the pain relief […]Read More 14.12.18 – In Time For Christmas
I’ve just been to the hospital to visit a couple of people. One of which is a friend of mine. I met her on the ward when I was in hospital.she is currently waiting for a new liver. Every week I see her she looks more and more unwell, and it breaks my heart. She’s […]Read More 09.12.18 – Praying For Her 🙏🏼
Woohoo! I managed to look after 6 patients with help from a keen second year student nurse. Until now I’ve been looking after max 3 patients or helping out another nurse with their patients. Yesterday I took on a bay by myself with a little help from others. I knew exactly what was happening with […]Read More 23.11.18 – Huge Progress!
