today has been bloody mad, sad, amazing, cool, terrific, crazy, i just cant describe it really.

And all because a very generous family gave Peter the best gift of all last night. The transplant went ahead at around 1am i think. I have lost track of times and days. My wonderful lovely cheeky funny husband is going to be ok. As he went through the doors to theatre, the transplant co-ordinator said 'I'll see you tomrorow in ICU' and he replied 'Well I won't see you' funny till the end my love.

I have been to see him today, and it wasn't 'that bad'. The last time he was there was for the LVAD recovery, and that was so so scary. He does have a small 'balloon pump' which is helping his blood flow, but its nothing like the LVAD. he is on assisted breathing only, and atm the heart is a little 'stiff' so they are given him adraline and something else to get it working well. He still hasnt pinked up, and has an infection. He may be on kidney dialysis tomorrow, which is comman after transplant and only temporary in most cases.

All in all, my bionic man, well he may not be part man part machine anymore, but he is bloody fantastic!


and just for you readers, this is the song Peter has been singing a lot over the last 2 and half years.

Sorry for the subtle nag to update. Now get your butt of to bed and tell M that she needs to as well, or at least put her feet up.

Don't let that nasty person from the other board get you down. You deserve that holiday!!

I am so pleased for both you and peter that he has finally received his new heart! Brought tears to my eyes this morning reading all this and just had to leave a message for you, at last he can finally do all the things with the girls and you of course that he could only dream about.
Just puts everything into perspective for me and wish you both all the best.
