Transplant Update : Sleepy Sleepy...

                       Hi Guys!
             I hope you are all Okay?

         I thought since I am awake
   Which isn't very often at the mintue...
    I would give you all a quick update!

         Earlier this week I recordered a 
bit of media for ITV West Midlands about organ donation - and it MUST have gone well since I have had quite a few people say that they have joined up after seeing it - And thats what its all about woo!

        I have been really aneamic at
the moment so sadly i am bed ridden,
equalling alot of jeremy kyle and bad TV!

       I have been having transfusions,
    so hopefully I will be feeling better for           the physio team on monday - gym time!
         But I just had to share these
hilarious selfies of me washing my hair
     in bed today using a wash cap..

               What an invention eh! 
  Got to keep smiling at times like these.

   Remember guys keep spreading the word - together we can help save lifes!

I think we need an update!

                       Hey Guys!
             I hope you are all well?

      You may have noticed that talking transplants has took a very blunt and quick turn into no blog posts,so I figured I really ought to explain this.
 At the beginning of July I became ill with what we at the time thought was norovirus... we were wrong it was ecoli.

  Good old Olivia (my livers nickname)   
fought very hard to filter it out of my system,infact she fought so hard she made my blood a little to thick which caused a blood clot.

 I am now lay at the QE awaiting another transplant (so please excuse the formatting as this is written out on phone lol) because the blood clot has gone septic and is killing the rest of poor olivia..

 So yes things have took a real shocking change.. I will be doing another post about how I feel about it all but I just wanted to inform you all why it has been so very silent.

 Talking Transplants is still very much rolling though! So if you need me, I can be found in all the same places as before
