Sixth anniversary!

Sunday January 13th 2013 at approximately 0830, I was wheeled in to the operating theatre at King's to receive the gift of a new liver. Man, those six years have flown by.

I've had ups and downs, and episodes of poor health suffering from pulmonary embolisms. But I have made it through.

What a wonderful gift it has been, and I shall be forever grateful to the donor and her family. All made possible by the almost super-human liver team at King's. From the cleaners to the surgeons, to me they all shine like stars in the universe.

Here's to the next six years!

Thank you.

Many happy returns Martin. To many more...

and to the six after that Martin! Great to hear these stories. Very best wishes. Alf

I know. It really makes us appreciate every day!

Great stuff Martin!

It is truly great to hear from people who have had a successful transplant. This is the one time I can honestly say that I hope I have a long way to go before I get “there” 😁



Happy 6th birthday! May your health continue to improve.

Best wishes.
