Samuels House....

I know having a "Play House" is a bit girly, but I

thought Samuel would like one to play in and take

his cars into out of the sun? (Boy its been hot here!!)


I got this one, and I admit painting flowers on the front

and his name on the door was a touch girly, he seemed to

appreciate it?!


He loves it, and sits in there with his cars, in the shade

of the day. Although he's growing so fast I am not

sure how long he will able to use it?!


Thank you followers for all your messages about 

Sam (And all of us!) We are plodding along okay

and all enjoying the good weather (and my

reasonable health ! )


(Although I am struggling with my weight gain post

transplant, QEH are trying to help me lower my steriods

without bringing in rejection, so watch this space!!)



Excuse the slightly "Big Bad Wolf" picture last of all...

I am sure seeing that face will scare Samuel half to death?! 



Hot Hot....

As the UK sees record temp's of almost

90 degrees, I was worried about Samuel in

the heat...



(As he's also sporting a cut nose from a recent fall!) 


Then I remembered I had an OLD dome tent !


Grampy and I erected it in my garden in the

shade of a tree and Samuel was cool and had

fun coming in and out with toys, and we even had

an impromptu picnic out there!!


I hope the heat dies back abit soon, as its

really taking its toll on me, and

I have a stinking cold bug to which I cant

shift ! Maybe decamping into the tent is not a

bad idea?!


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!....
