28.03.19 – Birthday Time

Yet another birthday spent in hospital. Luckily I was well enough to go home in the afternoon to spend time with friends. Instead of hospital dinner, which isn’t as bad as some make it out to be, we ordered pizza 🍕. I went home on Thursday 20th so I was able to celebrate properly at […]

15.03.19 – Liver-versary

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 […]

25.02.19 – My Mind Wonders..

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?’, […]

16.01.19 – Lazy Bones

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 […]

22.12.18 – Home Today

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 […]

18.12.18 – Cholangitis

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 […]

11.11.18 – Remembrance Day

Today we celebrate 100 years since the end of WW1. Myself and many held a two min silence to remember those who fought for us, risked their lives, died fighting for our country and those still doing so today. I headed downstairs from the ward, for the Remembrance Day service at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. […]

07.11.18 – Biopsy

Afternoon: I’m on bed rest for 6 hours. It sounds amazing to be told that, but I want to move, sit up, walk around, go to Costa, maybe go shopping, head to Alton towers and have a couple of rides on Oblivion! I’ll fit it in, in time for them to discharge me. 😁. I’m […]
