Well it sounds like you proved them wrong about death row so you must be a very strong person. I hope you get on that list soon and get lucky.

Hi Teaky, I bet you must feel more than a bit annoyed they have let you think it's all over, when it wasn't but, it's a pointless waste of emotion.

I hope your heart is as strong as can be, so you get that transplant. As for your fitness, you can work on that. Fingers and toes crossed for you.xx
