Read this on the wall in the Transplant Centre -
' Organ's aren't needed in your final destination, so leave them behind without hesitation. Every person will someday be called home so leave them on earth to continue to roam. There's no need for organ's in heaven above so leave them on earth for others to love.
How very true.

seen Dr Leonard at the wythenshawe hospital Manchester, what a pleasent person, we met 2 years ago and found him to be be very blunt but i was feeling very low back then with this illness and did not take bad news well, i was prepared for what was going to be said which helped, he was very understranding and would like me on the list ASAP. I will be having the test on the 31st July. so fingers crossed every one.

Monday 9th May did not feel well today wish these dizzy spells would go away, rang sheffield Hospital so had to go in for a check up. well could not believe that they actually saved the same bed for me so they said !.. lol. Blood test returned OK, had a Heart Scan on Tuesday and on wednesday was in the theartre for more than an hour to have a Heart Caterisation, was later told by the Doctor that the Heart was doing supprising well but there was still a concern about the High Pressure in the lungs, The Heart Specialist was asked to examin and was also pleased with the Heart function but concerned about the pressures, they have decided to do a full MRI scan. So Pleased to see My Children Brandon & Isabelle, Mum & Dad took me to the Hospital canteen for a meal, Friday evening they did a head scan to ensure there was no blockages to cause my dizzy spells. now waiting for the Ears, nose & Throat test on Monday and MRI Scan on Tuesday, been boring over the weekend no Visiters, Dad at work, looking forward to see Ang and Tara on Monday and Dad on Tuesday. Time to seriously consider a Lung Transplant.
20th May Out of Hospital now ,Still no sign of me feeling 100 o/o still a bit weak. looking forward to seeing my Children Brandon & Isabelle and my Family.
Thanks to all the staff at The Royal Hallamshire Hospital for looking after me. sorry if i have caused you any Problems.
PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A ORGAN DONOR AND REGISTER TODAY.

Had to go to sheffield on the 30th March, after a long Drive to sheffield with my Dad we got there at 10.45 , there was a long wait for the walk test so the doctors decided to skip this test and look at removing the stiches and just check my Bloods. after a Hour and Half wait the test returned all clear and i was allowed to go home. which was a a big relief.

MONTREAL - A Canadian researcher may have discovered a breakthrough diagnosis - even a cure - for a devastating and deadly disease called pulmonary hypertension.
New research indicates a protein, dubbed PIM-1, is high in patients with the condition. The higher the PIM-1 levels, the more severe the patient's pulmonary hypertension, which narrows and scars pulmonary arteries and can stress the heart.
"The PIM-1 level in healthy patients is almost zero," Dr. Sebastien Bonnet, a researcher the Heart and Stroke Foundation, said in an interview Sunday. "Patients with severe pulmonary hypertension have PIM-1 levels through the roof."
Bonnet explained that somehow the protein makes cells sick. The research is ongoing.
"If you're able to knock down the expression of PIM-1, you'll be killing only the cells that are sick without harming the healthy cells," Bonnet said.
His research uncovered something even more exciting: by blocking the harmful protein, researchers were able to reverse the condition.
For the Quebec-based Bonnet, it's a ray of hope for patients struggling with the disease.
"The treatments now are limited and inefficient and the only way to cure someone with pulmonary hypertension is with a heart and lung transplant," he said.
The new discovery also might make it easier to diagnose the condition.
"This could be as simple as a blood test," he said. "You can just check the (PIM-1) levels."
Pre-clinical trials are now underway and Bonnet is optimistic human clinical trials on a drug cure will begin in a year.
According to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada, up to 5,000 Canadians have been diagnosed with the disease. Another 5,000 Canadians may be living with the illness and unaware they're sick.
