Although I not am a "Dog person" once a lifetime comes an animal

that is such a gentle, loving, funny, courageous, creature you

find yourself wondering what you'd do with out them?....


Today we all had to answer that question.....


Thank you Louis for making Samuel appreciate what a

wonderful thing  a canine companion can be. He is missing

you and saying "Woof" everytime he passes where

you sleep.


Rest easy Puppy, we love you, and you leave a big hole in the family....

Well Spring may well be on its way?...


Samuel and I prepared for what was a wonderful day

playing and chuckling in and out of the sun...

(Both wearing sun screen obviously!)


He was wonderful company all day....


Novel idea, in pictures...

In light of recent events I have decided that THIS 

is a really novel and good idea.


For April, I will be adhering to this to reflect on in a

months time..


I encourage you to do this as well...


(with modern cameras/phones it will take 3 seconds a day?!)


About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
