26.11.19 – 2020

I haven’t been feeling great mentally recently. I’m feeling fed up with all this I’ve been going through for the last 5 years. I think to myself, when will it all end, when will I get the chance to have a healthy year without any hospital admissions. I do believe, however, that 2020 will bring me strength, good health, happiness and opportunity to blossom career wise. To avoid having to be off sick and in hospital is all I ask, so that means good heath and happiness. That’s all I want this Xmas.

I’ve picked up my sketching hobby again. Whilst watching Peaky Blinders, I thought I’d sketch Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby).

  1. I do hope 2020 is a better year for you Olivia ❤️ I had a few years of bad health but since my open heart surgery to remove the Myxoma in May I am feeling so much better and I wish the same for you.

    Your liver transplant was a success though, can you remember how you felt last year? Did you feel better or worse than you do now? After all that time waiting for a suitable donor I would imagine that one would expect to be fighting fit afterwards , what is the recovery time for a liver transplant and is it known to cause the other issues you have faced?

    1. It can be known to cause other issues but I think I’ve been a bit unlucky. My liver is doing well, so that’s the main thing. It’s been 2 years next March since I had my transplant so it’s hard to remember what I felt like before

      I’m so happy that you are doing really well! It’s so great to hear.

      1. I remember reading your post when you were just about to have the surgery is it really that long ago 😳 Take a look back on your posts prior to your surgery, that may make you feel a bit better now ❤️ You are beautiful and strong Olivia things will turn around for you soon 🙏

  2. Hi Olivia. Try not to overthink things and remain positive. Things are better than before your transplant, take every day as it comes … one of these days you WILL feel better and you will feel mentally stronger too.
    I think about you often and pray for a good recovery for you. Wishing you all good thoughts for 2020. Love T x

    1. I can’t wait for this. I’m hoping and wishing that I’ll start to feel better very soon. I start my new job on 20th Jan. I’ll be doing my best to rest and recoup before then.
      Hope you are well. Xx


  3. Hi Olivia, I felt the same from the time i was diagnosed up to the day I had my transplant. I know what its like to hear ‘ one more test’ or one more visit to the hospital emergency or have one more health problem arise. I was feeling very dejected. So what would I like for Christmas? I would like you to get your wish. You will be in my prayers Olivia. Take care.

  4. I had an echocardiogram a few weeks ago after the removal of a myxoma and I was in awful pain for a few days after. Unfortunately somethings shown up and I have to see the surgeon again after Christmas! It would appear that life is not meant to be easy! We are survivors and we are strong. 😇
