Hey, sorry to hear all of this, just got caught up with what's been going on.

Wishing it all gets sorted for you and that you are feeling better soon.

Over here in NL, i think I've seen commercials on the tele for people to adopt a dog but you don't have to look after it. I don't speak Dutch yet so I might have that completely wrong :)

Hopefully things are moving in the right direction health wise Tom, sounds like hospital are on top of assessments and prep! 😎

I think as others have said, perhaps a new doggo would be a bit too much right now? Particularly if you want to be involved in their training (hard to do from hospital, or when first back home whilst recovering?) Then again if you’re happy for your wife to handle initial house training then the puppy might be nice for her? I wouldn’t worry about “stranger danger”, as your scent will be familiar to the pooch.

We miss Ziggy very much, it’ll be 12 months in a couple of weeks time since we lost her. A dog in the family home certainly brings a lot of joy.
Best wishes.

Hi Tom
How are you? I suspect I'm not the only one here worried as to how you are but are slightly nervous to ask. So I'm asking as I'm thinking about you and am concerned!
All the best

Just ticking along as usual. Doctors are happy with everything so it's just a case of waiting still. This is day 17 on the transplant list so I'm hoping that it's a case of sooner rather than later. The doctors did say worst case scenario I could be waiting 9-12 months...

It sucks because the bloke in the room next to me found a donor heart within six days of going on the list!

I guess it's a bit the luck if the draw as to what comes available and who it suits. We're all rooting for you (and might even play the odd fifth as well ;))

Trying to keep as active as possible whilst in here. It helps take my mind off things and helps prep my body for surgery which would lead to a quicker recovery. Averaging 3-4k steps a day and now have an exercise bike which I try to do 10 km a day on.

Jesus! If I did that much daily exercise, I'd end up needing a Heart Transplant as well! Respect, mate. :-)
