Transplant and Car's

This well has been one of the most scary, hard, upsetting, exciting, stressful weeks of my life.

Last Monday i went for my first TX clinic with Matt, it was good and i know a bit more about what I'm going to be letting myself in for but what i will be getting back far more out weights the bad.
The Dr, Jas was his name, was a very softly spoken middle aged man with white hair and prada shoe's!
He made me feel very at ease with the whole thing and gave me all the facts and info and asked if i wanted to go away and think about what i wanted to do next but i said no i already know, i had been thinking about this for around a year now or so and my mind had always been in the same place, pro TX.
I have never once quested if i should really have one or not, i only have to look at Connor to make me stronger, there is no way that i will ever stop trying to stay alive because if i did that i was giving up on him in a way. I wasn't ever going to do that.
After talking to Jas i had to have some bloods done (5 bottles!) and they didn't have the baby blue butterfly needles that they use on the CF ward so it took 2 trys and and big needle for him to get the blood that the nurse needed. (i still have the bruises to show for it)
When that was all done with Matt held the cotton wool on my hand to stop the blood and im not sure if it was him holding my hand or just the fact someone was but i just started to cry, i felt so silly coz i wasn't upset with anything that Jas had said and i wasn't in pain, i just started crying.
The nurse was lovely he rubbed my back and said that it had been a big step for anyone and that it was good to let it out and have a good cry once in a while, after that i was fine.
Like nothing had happened.
I have just today got my app for my 2 day stay for the TX test, 14th march till 16th march. scary.

We also ordered my new motabiliy car this week, were getting a new C-Max and it will have my number plate on that my mum and dad got me for my 26th birthday last year.
I cant wait, its in panther black and looks fab!
