Thursday 14th to Friday 22nd May
Some upset days, some lovely hot and sunny days.
These things go towards me getting behind with my blog, sorry!
I simply just can’t stay out of my garden!
There was a Saturday morning delivery 😋
I was so badly in need of this to cheer me up a little.
My goodness, I can’t tell you how good that coffee tasted!
By the way, following the fall in the peas, my leg is still swollen, bruised and hurting ☹️
The organ donation law changed on 20th May. Now all adults in England will be considered as having agreed to donate their own organs when they die unless they record a decision not to donate, what’s known as ‘opt out’, or are in one of the excluded groups.
Anthony Clarkson, Director of Organ Donation and Transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant, says: “Organ donation remains a choice and families will still be involved in any donation decision. It is absolutely an individual’s choice whether they want to register as an organ donor or to opt out. We want to ensure that people are making the right decision for them based on facts rather than misinformation. Once a person has made their decision, we encourage them to let their friends and family know and consider registering their decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register”.
The most important priority for a medical team is always to do everything they can to save the life of their patient. Organ donation would only ever go ahead with the family’s agreement and once all life saving measures have been exhausted and clinicians confirm that the patient has died.
If you are still unsure about your own decision you might find some help by reading this:
If you were to donate your organs think what great gifts you have left behind.
And you will always be someone’s hero …
This poem is simply amazing –
‘But why did it take a virus to bring the people back together?
Well, sometimes, you got to get sick, my boy, before you start feeling better.’
Love it 😍
