My life on a plate! A place where I get to waffle on about anything and everything, and hopefully raise some awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and organ donation on the way.

I am being discharged! Yaaay!
The team swooped in this morning, glanced at me and agreed that I am indeed safe to be released back into society. I will finish my IVs at home, but have to come back up to clinic next friday so they can check that I am well enough to stop them. I can't wait to get home to own bed, good food, and my man and my family. Bliss!
Today has been rediculously busy as we went up on community newswire (which is a National press feed so we are thrilled to be on there!) yesterday afternoon, so we have already been receiving phonecalls from various Media areas who would like to cover our campaign. A big hurray moment, as my mum would say. At 8.30 we had an interview with BBC radio Bristol, and we have been doing and setting up various other interviews all morning.
I am feeling rather tired but incredibly smiley, as this looks like it is going to be a good high profile month for organ donation, and even better it looks like our campaign will feature strongly. So YAY for spreading the word and raising awareness. National Transplant Week is 9 - 15th July so if you havent bought your T-shirt yet you can do so now by clicking here and wear it that week with pride!
29 years old, small blonde and smiley. I love life, but was facing a death sentence due to end stage cystic fibrosis. Thanks to the generosity of a stranger I received a life-saving double lung transplant in January 2007, and am now a very proud mummy.
I am very much a people person and a rather girly girl, loving all things pink! I enjoy talking, laughing, utilising my love of talking in the form of public speaking and awareness raising, and inventing new words and then being unable to separate them from real ones in my head.
