4 years today...

Just been to QEH for my 4 year "MOT".


Can't believe it's been 4 years TO THE DAY that I had my Transplant.


Mixed feelings.......

Happiness that I am still here and enjoying my life, loves, and

family etc, but also sad that my "Transplant Buddy" did not get this far (RIP Matt Lammas.)

Sadness that Professor Bonser is no longer with us to see this day but most of all overwhelming

sadness for my Donors family and friends who will have a day of grief.


QEH have "concerns" as I appear to have fluid gathering around my heart which is

never good, but they have FOUND it and are monitioring it, so back in a few weeks

for a check up and see what happens then?


Thank you all for your love and ongoing support in my post transplant life, and for

your interest in my blog!




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!....
