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 […]

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 […]

18.05.20 – Cinnamon Rolls

So I’ve been working hard on my YouTube channel for a few weeks now and when I look at the stats, I feel as if I’m doing it all for nothing. I’m impatient! I know it’ll take a few years to build up more interest. I think I’m just desperate to get back to work […]

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 […]

23.09.19 – My Second Home

So I’m back in hospital – as a patient *eyes roll*. I arrived here on Thursday 19th Sept, so I’ve only been here for a few days. Unfortunately I spent most of the weekend waiting around, but I managed to get an ultrasound scan on Friday which as expected, showed nothing. Hopefully having an MRCP […]

23.08.19 – Pain Team

I’ve recently had an appointment with the pain team to try and decide what alternative treatment could be offered. It wasn’t easy to hear them saying that I’d probably have this nerve pain for life. That hit me harder than I thought but I think it was because I had heard it from a professional. […]

16.06.19 – 5000th liver party

On Saturday 15th June my dad and I attended a day time event to celebrate 5000 liver transplants at QEHB. We spent the day sat in talks delivered by Doctors and Specialist Nurses. They were all brilliant and very interesting. I had chance to say hello to the Doctors and Nurses who have looked after […]
