Just a quick post today as I have a lot to do but couldn’t let today go without a blog entry!
Today it is one year since my miraculous life saving transplant. In fact pretty much this time last year I was being wheeled into theatre. Whilst I had been blissfully unaware of the horrific past week, my family had all suffered a very long morning waiting to hear if I would get this very last chance- as the surgeon put it “at the eleventh hour and 59 minutes”!!
What a year it has been, so many happy memories that I never thought I would have. The first year after transplant is supposed to be the hardest and its a big milestone. It’s not been easy I will be honest but I have pretty much sailed through it compared to what some people have to deal with. I am a lucky lucky girl. When I look back to this time last year, I cant believe the biggest worry I have today is whether I will look fat in my dress tonight!!
Massive thank yous all round- to my fantastic husband, family and friends. To the amazing medical teams- particularly Mr Simon- my wonderful surgeon and most importantly to that lovely lady and her family who not only saved my life but gave me a future. Please all say a prayer for them today, I am very aware of their pain today as I am celebrating.
Lots of love to you all
