Due to one thing and another I have neglected my blog a bit !


The duties of doting Dad and getting well again are time consuming !


I have been very low, as my weight continues to increase every

time I so much as smell a cake or chip shop! QEH have been

very supportive as ever, and are trying to reduce my steriods

to help with the weight, I am also REALLY being careful what

I eat and when.


I had a bad batch of norovirus which hit me hard for a few

weeks and I just couldn't seem to drag myself back up to

"Typical Matt" antics, just lay in bed, trying not to mess the

bed, or puke into my tissue box!!  


Jane and Hannah also got a good dose of it, but had the 

 advantage of an immune system to fight it! BUT

all in all you did not want to be our sewage pipe !!


I am now up and around and more importantly making up for

lost time with Samuel and our play times! He is coming on a

treat, and for all those who have emailed making lovely

enquiries about us all, here are some recent pics of Samuel



Thanks for looking in followers!...Watch this space!                                                                                                                                            


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!....
