Transplant +12: Home

I’m home.

In the end they decided not to remove my Hickman line as my platelet count is still marginal. I’ll be back for an outpatient appointment on Thursday. My bloods will be checked again, and the line removed assuming all is well.

It’s been a positive experience. Not something that I wanted to go through, nor would I wish it on anyone else. But yes, a positive experience.

Time to recover and build my strength back up. It’s likely to take a few weeks, but I feel in reasonable shape to make a good start to my second life.

Conkers – a souvenir of my time in hospital. They’ll be used to repel all the spiders for the next year!

    Oh Tim, I’m so happy for you to be home with this positive outcome. And love that you have some Conkers to show for it! 🙂

    Thank you for the inspiring posts and updates the last 20 days, I can’t even imagine what it’s been like to experience it all – but you’ve change peoples lives from a far with your words and attitude – at least for myself and Lisa.

    Love to you and your family from me and mine.
