Decided to take car out! (On my own!!)

A fool hardy plan, but new ticker was more than

up to the job of unloading, and loading car!  :-)

I had a top day, and depleted ozone abit! (Sorry!)

Car went like a charm with it's new carbs and radiaitor etc.

I am still stunned at the new heart! I feel fantastic, and better

than I have have ever felt. Every now and again I catch myself

doing some thing, (normally mundane?)that I would NOT have been

able to do before! HOORAH FOR QEH!!



Sad but true !! ;-)

It's sad, but true, I am quite excited, and chuffed

at the installation of my new side pod, and radiaitor!

(Save a hot bottom!)

Can't wait until the revisions are finalised, and I can

see if my (slightly enlarged-Steriod fueled, fatter,) frame

can still squeeze into my overalls and helmet?!




Beautiful Balloons!

Bristol Balloon fiesta 2009.

Hundreds of hot air balloons filled the sky,

quite a spectacle, on a warm evening. Was

very relaxing to watch them drift by!....



£ Mission accomplished !

Done it!

I surpassed my target of £7000 for the QEH trust.

I recently handed them a cheque for £8500!  Below

is a picture of me with the cheque in the QEH outpatients

dept, where it resides!

Thanks to all for the donations and support, I couldn't

have done it with out you!!  Keep watching this sapce though,

for my continued challenges!   :-)    Matt.




About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
