At 17.06 today exactly six month ago I was being wheeled from theatre across liver street (corridor) for at least a 7 night stay, I was in 1 night and wheeled to Todd ward tbe next morning! Not bad for a fella who’s MELD score was saying, almost any day? I’m six month into the woods and I really can see the sunshine coming through from the clearing 😊 . Tomorrow I’m 14 months sober, you gotta love it. I’m humbled, greatful, a better man, a better feeling, a better everything really. I cannot thank my cdonor, his family, Professor Nigel Heston, the staff a Kings, my family, my friends, my partner of 19 years and husband of 9 months for never, ever giving up on me.

Someone or something moped my brow, wiliest my tears and cleared my medication be so I was able to be strong enough to face my biggest battle. Tbe war will be never truly over but I am equipped enough to go into battle again and again.,..........

Miles, in all seriousness my lack of grammar et al has, in all honestly, gone downhill since transplant? My handwriting has also changed enormously and I cannot write my formal signature? 😢!
