So this a running commentary of what is happening with my father at the moment. To give you some background, my Dad is in his 60’s, he was told he wouldn’t live past 40 and Doctor advised Mum not to marry and have children with him. Almost 40 years later, 2 kidney transplants and all sorts of other bibs and bobs, here we are. Through all this my dad has cycled, ran, swam, archered, rowed and just about most other things. He “wants’ to live’ and be alive and I am so, so proud for that. However now as can occur in many transplant patients, he has a calcification on his heart and is high risk for a heart attack. After his fight to be here and to be living his life full of energy he has to try and find a balance so his heart isn’t the one to fail him. My Dad is incredibly stubborn and is not easily “slowing down”. I am feeling a little powerless at the moment, but hope that he has that moment. The moment you have when you realise you need to change something before it is too late. I hope he finds this moment very soon, I have never been more proud of anyone in my life then I am of him and his fight for it!

  • Thank you ladies. I hope is is sticking to his limits, he has ignored them in the past. and yes we all get more stubborn the older we get, I take after my father, that’s probably why we are bucking heads a little at the moment.

  • & I am sure from reading this he is so incredibly proud of his girl. I hope he learns to take it easier, the older we get the more stubborn we become. I wish you all the best :)
