Thank you for all the tremendous support for my last blog during National Transplant week, very lucky to have so many amazing people behind me, group hugs all round!
I have been a busy girl; at the moment though I am suffering a lot with lethagy and fatigue. Am really hoping this is going to turn out to be anemia again which is easily sorted, annoying as feeling really well in every other way but being so tired is disconcerting and reminds me of pre transplant life. Had the bloods done yesterday so hopefully should know soon, please think anemic thoughts ;)
Tiredness has not stopped me doing everything though and its been a great week for awareness raising!
Firstly I appeared on the Lorraine Kelly show on Tuesday morning, doing a follow up piece. They filmed me last year when I was very ill and it was great to go to the studio and talk about how life has changed. Everyone was amazed at how well I look! Big thanks to Luke who set it up for me, the lovely team at Lorraine who took care of me and, to Molly who told me how to post video's and to Pete who transfered the interview to the computer so I can post it here for you to watch!
I was really nervous at first but ended up really enjoying it had a great time and been bitten by the campaigning bug :)
I've also been interviewed for my local paper, who are great and always support me. The actual paper will be out on Friday for locals but you can read an online version here if you are so inclined!
Also a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to my giving page for my half marathon, training to an extent is on hold while I'm so tired but am still managing to keep active. At present the total stands at over £700 which is incredible I'm so astounded by your generousity. This money is going to make a huge difference to my 2 charities so please give whatever you can because every penny counts. You can find my page here.
I'm also going to repost my transplant week video here as I know people were having trouble with the link in my last post and now I know how to add them to my blog! ;)
Thank you again for all your support, will be back again soon with hopefully less tiredness and more training! In the meantime leave me a comment as I love to hear from you all and I'll leave you guessing what fancy dress outfit I will be wearing to complete my half marathon..... ;)
