my new heart!! (Well recycled!)


I got to SEE and ENJOY my 40th Birthday!


Jane got some food in, I invited close family and old

friends and we had a relaxed (If soaked to the skin!)

mini celebration!!


What a lucky boy!!

June seems to be the month of milestones for me!


QEH have allowed me the extra time on earth to see

our darling Emily turn 18 !!


We had a lovely day, just chilling out and doing what she

wanted (ie; stay in and receive fuss from everyone!)


We had a lovely meal out to celebrate with her (Before she

hit the tiles and had her 1st LEGAL pub crawl!!) We went to a lovely

place and all enjoyed an excuse to dress up, but what about poor

little Samuel?...

How do you dress a baby for dinner?........


SORTED!!     ;-)



(He handled his jelly cocktail with due finess!)





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!....
