Friday 1st to Friday 8th November
November, yuck! It’s getting very close to my least favourite month of the year 😖
On the 3rd of November I had been back at work since having my transplants for 4 years. It’s still as tough some days as it was at the start!
Well done to Derbyshire Police ‘who stepped in to deliver a human organ for an immediate transplant at a Birmingham hospital after the ambulance it was being transferred in broke down’.
Happy Bonfire Night – I didn’t actually get to see any fireworks 🎇 ☹️
While I was at work on Friday, three different customers told me that I was looking pale. It has been a tough week, full of stress and worry 😖
And finally, congratulations to Lewis Capaldi on reaching the US Number 1 spot with his song Someone You Loved (it was also Number 1 here in the UK for 7 weeks).
‘Many people might not know that while the song lyrics can apply to many situations, Lewis connected the message with organ donation.’
You can hear Lewis talking about the story behind the song in this video from NME magazine. (Sorry about the swearing 🤬 ).
