Thursday 16th June

16 Jun

Just a quick post to let you know how it went today at Harefield.

We met Mr Simon, the head of transplantation at Harefield who was very nice. He said there isn’t a particular reason why I haven’t been selected as yet except for the fact that there are quite a few girls of my blood type and stature that are on the list, some of them longer than myself. Although he did say that he has been getting through this group more recently which is good news. He also acknowledged that I had been waiting a fair amount of time with no calls. It was a slightly strange appointment, I did feel that he was definitely assessing me as we spoke but wasn’t really sure what for!

Anyway, think i may have passed whatever test it was because he agrees with Dr Carby that I should do really well at transplant and basically, as we already knew they can’t promise anything but my profile will be raised now and he will keep me in mind. He is confident that they should be able to do something for me in time 🙂

We also had a very interesting conversation with him about the new ways they are doing the transplant operations and it all sounds very promising. I won’t go into all the details now as I am pretty tired after today!

So relieved to get today over with and to be honest it couldn’t have gone better. Dad just popped by this afternoon too so lovely to see him. He and Mum are off home tonight for the weekend.

Thank you to everyone for all your thoughts, prayers, texts etc, it means a lot 🙂 xx

    Hi Kerry

    Well that is another positive step in the right direction. Well done you, it must have taken lots of effort and energy to even get there. You obviously did brilliantly.

    Lots of love

    Nice one Kerry, sounds like a very positive day, so happy you have raised your profile and put yourself in the frame so to speak!

    Stay positive, I have two friends who have had the transplant and they are doing really well and have not looked back since. Have a rest and keep looking ahead that is where your future is!

    Keep smiling……..God loves a smiler and chocolate button eaters especially you pet!

    Love and hugs
