Wondering Why...

Sunday, 29 March 2015


Hello you lovely people! Hope you are all well :D well where do I start… I went up to Great Ormand Street on Thursday 19th march to have my Antibody Rejection treatment and because I wasn't feeling well either, I was getting breathless walking, so i explained all to Helen and she said i have an infection because my lung function was quite down. I was started on IV ceftazidime and oral cipro, went home that Friday after my rejection treatment finished and after having trouble with my picc line which decided to snap in half whilst taking blood haha but they fixed it after 6-7 hours of trying. I decided to go college on Monday but I was very breathless walking around and had no energy at all so didn't go for the rest of the week, my nurse has been coming around a couple times this week and my lung function keeps dropping so I don't believe it's an infection but of course I listen to my doctors. I don't seem to be coping very well with the fact that I'm getting very out of breath again doing things, it isn't as bad as before transplant but loosing lung function so quick and being use to being able to do things again to not being able to walk up the stairs without having a break half way through is hard. There are people much more worse then me and are waiting for a transplant and I know what that feels like so I really don't know why I'm moaning but I just wonder.. why? why all this again, I haven't really had a break from it since I've had my transplant, best thing that ever happened to me and i will always remember and can't thank my donor enough but it isn't always an easy life after transplant but the best thing to do is get on with it :) I'm doing my lung function again tomorrow and hopefully it hasn't gone down again, if it has we are telling GOSH and hopefully they will do something about it and i'm ready to fight anything that comes at me! :) 

As always, thank you for reading

The Tarka Walk 2015!

Thursday, 12 March 2015


Saturday was the day for the Tarka Walk 2015 which was a sponsored walk me and my family organised and the money raised will go to Live Life Give Life, it was a great day and around 100 people turned up to do the walk, there was a raffle which had some great prizes, we've already raised about £1000 so far and we haven't had everyone's sponsorship money in yet! A few friends that has had transplants came down for the walk too, one of my best friends Jess Paddock who i have mentioned before, Emily Icke and Neil Capener, they have all had double lung transplants like me. I only managed to do half of the walk but that was more then i expected to do. Jess did the whole way and she is only 5 months post tx, i'm so proud of her! i wouldn't of been able to organise it without my Mum, Dad, Step mum and Austin Wallas who has helped my family a lot with the sponsored walks we have done! in the night me, Jess, Emily, Neil and friends went out for chinese before we all said goodbyes, Me and jess went to see Harriet on Friday and i bought her a lovely friend stone to put on her grave, it looked beautiful, Harriets parents and little sister came to the walk and it was hard to hold back the tears but i loved seeing them.

Thank you everyone who came to the walk and theres still chance to sponsor me through my Just Giving page please click..  *HERE*. We are thinking of doing a summer fete next year so i look forward to seeing you all there! for now i shall leave you to some photos of the day…
