31.03.22 – Day 9

Day 9 testing positive with Covid 19…..but I’m fine! Better than expected actually. My main issue is a cough which has kept me up at night. My sleep has been pretty disrupted but I’ve got no concerns in getting back to normal. I’ve been very lucky. This time I’ve had to myself has come to […]

26.03.22 – Liver – versary

Its been 4 years since my transplant! Can you believe that? I ended up looking after my first split liver transplant patient on the day of my Liver-versary a couple of weeks ago. It was an honour to do so. I didn’t end up telling the patient about what the day meant to me but […]

04.03.21 – Pfizer Take 2!

2nd and final Pfizer Covid vaccine… check! ✅ Feeling very lucky to be as safe as I can be now. It doesn’t mean that I can go back to work yet. We are told not to change anything in the way we protect ourselves. So I’m shielding now until 31st March. I can’t wait to […]

25.10.20 – Side Effects

I developed a sensitivity to a new drug I recently started on. The side effects began on the second day of taking it. Not realising the pain and bad stomach was from the new drug, I continued on taking it as normal. The morning after I work up itching continuously. Honestly it made me remember […]

07.09.20 – Post-lockdown

Let’s face it, 2020 hasn’t been the best year, but I’m glad we are now in a better position. I’ve been back to work for a few weeks now since since lockdown began. It’s getting a bit tiring now. I’ve started to get home feeling either drained or defeated. Even though things have normalised a […]

27.06.20 – Russian Farts

Guess what! I’m back at my place of work! Not working unfortunately. Im back in for treatment! I honestly thought that this year would be the year where I wouldn’t end up back in hospital. Well, it’s not like it’s been a particularly great year for everyone. At least I’d not be doing much at […]

26.03.20 – Very High Risk

After Boris’s message last week, as a very high risk person, I was sent a text message advising me on what stringent guidelines to follow. After receiving this message I decided to drive back home again. I returned last week because I wasn’t mentally prepared to go back. Being at home is a reminder of […]

12.12.19 – Too Soon

I regret to say that I ended up overdoing it last week! Thinking that I’d be ready to start exercising after 9 weeks post op, I thought I could give the gym a go. Going wasn’t the mistake, it’s what I did at the gym that was the mistake. After having an abdominal operation, you’d […]

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 […]
