So I am busy contacting various people about Donor Day, creating lists and lists of things to do! As well as trying to fit in some uni work!
I appeared in my Local Warrington Guardian today, click here to see the article. Battlefront got a mention which was great. I deliberately didn't mention Donor Day as I thought I could milk it and maybe get another mention in the paper nearer the time haha!
My Mum and Dad managed to get in on the action too with a picture of them with me in recovery! (not very flattering of me, but hey!)
Today is Abigail's (my neice) half birthday! Can't believe how quickly the past 6months have gone!
She had her first suck of chocolate to celebrate! Here she is before....
I decided that I needed a break from the campaigning stuff and Uni work! I felt like I hadn't done anything FUN for a while or anything too strenuous since my transplant so I went Ice-Skating!
Mum and Dad took me and decided they would skate too! Well that didn't last long, Mum stood on the ice (not moving) for 5 minutes and then got off. Dad made slightly more progress and shuffled about 5 yards and then gave up! As for me... I had a great time and didn't fall over once!
Here is me on the Ice...
I would never have been able to do this pre-transplant! It has made me think about other stuff that I want to do in the future. I am going to make a list and post it as a blog when I get round to it! Planning things in advance was a no-no before transplant and so was being spontaneous so it was a lose lose situation. I can't believe how much my life has changed!
As I said in the article... I couldn’t be spontaneous before and just go away for the weekend because of the dialysis. I feel much healthier now. I don’t know where the donor came from but they have given me a second chance for which I will be grateful for the rest of my life.
