Okay so its been a month since I last blogged. What can I say? I'm a bad blogger but I will try harder.
Had some, I was going to say disappointing news yesterday but its not really. It turns out that Himself and are not compatible blood wise so he can't donate a kidney to me. And while it would have been lovely to come off dialysis sooner rather than later I hated the thought of him putting himself at risk for me. How could I live with myself and his kidney if his side of the operation went wrong?
I think I need to write about how I feel and what its like waiting for the call that could well probably will (hopefully) change your life. Book or blog? Book or blog? Decisions decisions. I just know that when times get tough I find it therapeutic to write.
Please don't think I'm despondent though. I seriously feel better than I have ever felt in my life. I have the love of a very good man and I have two healthy children that I could not be more proud of. I am very lucky.

You are also very courageous. Hang in there, Colette. I'll keep my fingers crossed for that kidney.

Thanks Frances. I'm sure one will turn up.

I think you are amazing, Colette - you have had to face such huge changes in your life, yet you always sound so positive. I hope you don't have to wait too long for that transplant x

Fingers crossed Teresa. I'm not actually active on the list for a few weeks because I have to be in remission for 15 months which I reckon is the middle of September.
