I’ve been busy working hard on my latest blog post, which is going to be about my pre-donation medical. It’s surprisingly long and I’ve been considering splitting it into 2 parts!

I thought I’d let you know that today I received a call from the Anthony Nolan Trust to inform me that the patient has developed an infection so we need to delay the procedure for around four weeks.

I’m a little disappointed not to be going ahead as planned, but completely understand and am happy to reschedule.

I’m sure you will join me in wishing the patient, whoever and wherever they may be, a safe and speedy recovery from this infection so they can concentrate on preparing for their transplant!


The other complication is that there will now be more than 30 days between my medical and the donation; which means I’ll need to go in for another, at least partial one. I won’t tell you the details in this post but I’m sure you’ll read all about it soon.
