QEH... Mot

by The Squirrell 9. January 2014 20:43

Today was an anxious day...


I went for my 5 year "MOT" at QEH. Jane and

I went up early in a hopeful mood, hoping that

all would be ok, but tinged with trepidation in case all

was not well...


THANKFULLY, QEH are satisfied at present, and apart from a telling

off for my weight gain (And trying to do things that are a bit dangerous!)

I was allowed home with just some alterations to my medications!


After the 5 year anniversary, and now today, my spirits are

lifted from a dark mood following some complications and

angst earlier in 2013.


My thanks to you all for your continued support, interest,

friendship and caring, without which my ongoing life and loves

would be fruitless. Special thanks go to QEH Team, my Jane, Parents,

girls and loved ones (Samuel still a bit young to understand!)


I often think about my donors family and wish I could tell them

how grateful I am, and how I hope my donor would be proud of

the gift they gave me, and what it has allowed me to do...

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!....
