I don't CU

November 15, 2016

I’ve finally been transferred out of ICU and this whole thing has really given me some great motivation to keep pushing and hopefully get discharged soon. I’m still not able to walk and am pretty much bed ridden. Im starting to learn more about my LVAD, how to change the batteries and am learning about the safety of the machine. It’s easier than I thought it would be. The controller is connected to my body which then leads to two battery outputs. If both batteries disconnect the controller has 15 minutes of internal battery and then the machine stops working. Lets hope that mine will never stop working! 

 

Im 17 and therefore I shouldn’t be in the adult ward, so there is no chance of me making friends in this ward who are anywhere near my age. I’m surrounded by 2 other LVAD patients who have told me some stories about their experience with the machine and one of them has really motivated me to be happy with my life. This man has been through so much and he cannot do as much as the people around him but he still pushes himself and always has a smile on his face. It made me really think that I shouldn’t ever be upset about having to have an LVAD. If I have a positive mind and attitude, it’ll just make everything easier. 

 

I start my Physio sessions in 2 days and I cannot wait to see how long it’ll be before I’m able to walk normally.

 The importance of being an organ donor! 

The fact that signing up to be an Organ donor you could save up to eight human beings from dying is a bigger positive than you can imagine. Saving a humans life is one of the things people can sometimes only imagine of doing. Through the act of Organ Donation, YOU can change this. 

 

Organ Donation gives everyone the ability to save a life. In fact, your eyes could help someone you’ve never met see the world. Your organs could make someone on the edge of dying get their breath back. Organ Donation mostly takes place after a signed up Organ Donor has passed. There is an extremely large gap between the number of registered donors compared to those awaiting Organ Donation world wide. 

 

The way I look at it is like this - when you were a child, you probably had the idea of one day wanting to be a Super-hero. Once you pass, you will no longer be needing those organs and they could be put to great use by saving another human beings life. When a person receives an Organ Transplant, not only do you become their hero, but you also become a hero to the many people involved in his/her life.
