Times flies !...


Cannot believe my beautiful little boy is 2 !


He celebrated in style with a Fireman Sam outfit

and was spoiled rotten all day!


I am so grateful for to my donor (God rest him) and to his

family. I think about them often, more so on momentous occasions

such as this that I have only got to see, thanks to the wonderful

gift of life that he and QEH gave me almost 5 years ago...


Happy Birthday Sammy... I love you.  Dad x


Samuel 2 !!

Happiness is - Chocolate around your face,

a damp stick to explore, and poke things with,

a warm coat, a chilly November day and Daddy

to show you where all the good stuff is to poke with

your stick !


Had a wonderful day with Samuel today, doing man stuff !!


Heart ticking along, albeit with a broken foot !!


Can't believe Sam is TWO years old on Friday!


Where's the time gone?!....


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!....
