FIVE YEARS!

Standard

Friday 21st to Thursday 27th February

So this time 5 years ago my liver transplant journey started.

I got the call, I had the transplant, the liver failed, I very luckily had the second transplant.

And now 5 years have passed.

To celebrate my five years I made a little photo slideshow πŸ“½

The consultants think that my illness, Primary Biliary Cholangitis, may already be back in my new liver πŸ€” I do have times when I just don’t feel well and I still get very tired. But I have had no major setbacks during this time. I have been so very lucky and have been able to do many fun things, all thanks to my two donors and their families agreeing to organ donation.

Also to celebrate reaching 5 years I decided that I would arrange to do an organ donation awareness stand on the 27th, the anniversary of my second transplant. I did this at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where I go to volunteer. My friend Annie came down from the ward to help me. We got a few people to sign up and explained the changes that are coming up in the Spring to others that were interested. We had a successful morning.

Then it was time to go out for some yummy food πŸ˜‹ with Robyn and Leah. And later there was cake!

Fingers crossed for another five years …
