Changed my hospitals ,

Changed my hospitals ,

Hi my lovely's  it's been some time since I've discussed changing 

To a MPN Specialist , well I've done it , 😜

I discussed it with my haematology department & it wasn't a problem to them , I am waiting for a referral some time soon ,

I hope I've done the right thing , hubbys not to happy about it 

He says they've kept me fit & well for 3 yrs now , Why the change of mind , 

Well as you all know my new status being a Nana , it got me thinking , I want to stay well for as long as possible (as we all do)

But it only hit home since my grandson came along , 

That I want the best possible care for now & long term 

So I'm hoping I've done the right thing ,   

I thought you'd like to see my little Prince 💙

Who wouldn't like to stay around this little guy 13 wks today Carter James , I love Hume so much xxxx

Hi Pam,

What a gorgeous little boy, no wonder you love him to bits!

Great decision! I decamped to an MPN specialist almost three years ago and never looked back. I have a three hour round trip to Manchester from Windermere but it's worth every mile.

I was in the care of a local haematologist who was very good at his job too, and completely dedicated, but I never felt that he really knew as much as he could about MPN s particularly PV.

I put all sorts of info his way particularly re MPN voice and patients day for professionals, but he wasn't interested.

You won't regret it.

All the very best.

Thanks Louise I really couldn't imagine life without him ,

He's brought to much love to us in 13 wks beyond belief 

He's Nana's little Prince 

That's good to hear your change was worth it , I hope mine is to 

I've heard lots of great things from this Hospital it's only 10 mins drive from me ,(( Bonus ))

They forgot 3 appointments I've had to ring to remind them ,

Must sign off now 12;30 am 

Take care

Well done Pam hope the new hospital works well for you and of course the gorgeous Carter is great motivation to be in the best of health .

I love the way you love him so much it's great to see xx


Hi Pam , well i think the decision you have made is GOOD ! I never thought of this , and totaly agree with you ! mainly because although heamatologists know there stuff , its seems in my view  right to  find a MPN specialist , should be available for us all ,if need be or we feel disatisfied , especially this cancer is fairly rare and lots people havent a clue what it is , You go gal and do what you feel is right , your body , your life love Holly xx
