Things have been a little manic the past few days. My eldest son has been treated and flattened so he can have the transplant. The Donor was a 34 year old female from the UK. All I know is the code they gave but whoever you may be thank you for the donation!
The picture is of the card he got when they did the transplant from Antony Nolan Trust.
To say that he is at the very least tired is an understatement but they are very happy with how it is progressing.
He will be in the hospital for at least another 4 weeks providing he does not pick up any bug on the way?
Before the transplant he was treated at his local hospital but the main treatment he was in our local hospital. This is where it shows how some hospitals think about their patrons. My sons hospital do weekly parking tickets to help costs. My hospital where he had a large amount of treatment does nothing but charge hourly rates, no concessions and issue as many tickets as it can if you break their many rules. They have a Disability area for blue badge holders. But at least 20% has non Badge holders in there. But this is where it gets my goat. They give 15 minutes free parking but they let more cars in than spaces so it is not uncommon to drive around for 20 minutes or more looking for a space? This car park was so full one day I went to another part to wait for 25 minutes for my car to get to the barrier to let me in. Once I got in, there was 15 parking spaces I could see from my car, vacant! Now is it any wonder that people will park in areas to get to their appointments on time, then to get a ticket which they expect £60.00 for?
The transplant hospital do weekly, monthly tickets plus a 20 visit ticket fo £10.00. But as I am on ESA Support as long as I show them my forms I get free parking. This is a great help as this hospital is a daily 48 mile round trip for us, so fuel costs are draining the budget loads.
