Now and again you get a GREAT photo...


This captured the delight in Samuels face as Jane tickled him!


I hope never to loose the ability to find delight in the smallest

of things? 


Billy - Top evening out!...

Jane and I had a RARE treat... A night out together 

WITHOUT baby Samuel! (bit of a wrench to begin with!)


I treated Jane to an evening with Billy Connolly...


He was very funny and a wonderful story teller. We laughed

and enjoyed each others company. Funny how life turns out....


Who'd have thought I'd have been bounding up steps to the

theater with my new heart, while our new baby was safe in the

care of my Mum and the girls?!



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!....
