Today two years ago I pledged my life to my girlfriend with the thought that I may not have made it to my first anniversary!When I made my vows I was barely able to breath and had to use oxygen in the car because of this. I had taken a break from the list to get my affairs in order as I didn't know if I would survive past the operation.
My first wedding anniversary was in Harefields Hospital in a ward 19 days after my double lung transplant.
Here I am now despite my worries and happy to celebrate my good fortune with my wife who has stood by me for over 24years, though many changes, but none as big as the one we have been though in this last two years.Despite some ups and downs and illnesses along the way she has been my rock
I love you my darling wife
I don't know what I can do to thank you.
I just hope in the years we have now I can love you as much as you have loved and cared for me:)
None of this would have been possible but for my donor!
Please sign the donor register Here
I am happy, seeing my children grow into adults and am able to celebrate!
Another reason to celebrate is that Victoria Tremlett who I have been following on this blog since before my transplant has been given the gift of new lungs in Harefields on 11th October after a wait of over four years she has had a few complications but is now doing well and back tweeting on Twitter @tor87
I have also been following another possible transplantee Kerry Thorpe who is the face of the latest campaign by the charity LLGL who campaign for organ donation you can find out more here
She is presently waiting to attend Harefield Hospital for a assessment for inclusion on the transplant waiting list for a lung transplant and I wish her all the best for this.
