Hello, my readers. I have missed posting in my Blogg. Here’s hoping everyone’s staying safe and well, through this COVID pandemic. Please accept my sincere sympathy, to all those that have lost loved ones, RIP due to the dreaded COVID spores. I have been cocooning for the last 10 weeks, except for my 3 mornings per week dialysis sessions, that are a must, to keep me alive and my heart ticking. I don’t know about you people, but to me, it seems an eternity. At present they are not doing any Organ transplant operations in the Irish Republic hospitals. I expect it’s the same in other countries. I am due an x-ray on my beautiful Heart next Friday the 29th of May, After a severe dose of pneumonia last year, my renal Consultant temporarily suspended me, from the Kidney transplant list. This did not help my mood swings, and I got a bit low. Thankfully one of our Waterford Healing Arts Trust team, Maeve came along and got me interested in writing my second book. What an amazing lady, she lifts my mood with her caring and dynamic personality. I call her my guiding star. I’m now writing a book of short stories about my dog. My friends and followers on Facebook that follow “Alfies escapades will understand what I mean. Alfie is our Jack Russell terrier dog We adopted him on the 13th of April 2017, from the Waterford dog pound. Alfie was about two years old. He was daft as a brush. A real handful when we got him first. I started a page about his antics on Facebook. He has 400 followers. When I meet people on the street they are full of praise, for me making them laugh. Maeve said why not write the stories in a book. By doing this it has helped me through the tough times of my suspension and the COVID19 cocooning period of my life. I have a few other tests to take before I get the okay to go back on to the Kidney transplant list. Times are hard for everybody. All we can do is try to stay safe and well. Keep your distance. Look out for one another. Thank you, to all that read tonights Blogg. From the author Liz McCue.
Well, tickle me with a Pea hen’s feather, This young Spring chick is ready to turn the nifty 50s <3 into the Swinging 60s next Tuesday 10th. Tomorrow Ii will have spent 16 years on my Kidney dialysis machine named Able Mable. Its a lifetime to me I started at 19 years young. I had a kidney that worked after 10 years. So guess what this feisty renal warrior was a born fighter. There were no gold spoons when I was born. Oh no, just a shield and big shining Sword to keep the spark alive Talk about Fight or flight Well it was" Charge" as I sprinted into battle mode. Please, friends, do pray for your author pal Lizzy bits I need another Kidney transplant pretty soon. If we all pray for each others special intentions We might all have them truly answered. May our God walk with us every step of the way, keeping us safe and protected. May God bless us all as we sleep Sweet dreams to us all Lizzy bits<3
Today is the 08/02/2020. I had lost faith of getting a kidney for a short while. Those that know me, Will knows there is never no giving up on my part. I came out fighting as a tiny baby, instead of a silver spoon I was given a shield for all my battles in life. My mother always knew I was a survivor . No matter what knocked me back, I always get up again. Like a bouncing clown, smiling from one ear to the other. That’s all I ever knew was survival. I’m very resilient, and capable of getting through near death encounters, I have experienced a few. Thank God above, its never my time to get my wings. I have much more to do here on Mother Earth. We all have a purpose in our lives, even if we do not know what that is. My purpose is writing real life stories. I aim to inspire others that may have long term illnesses or many other issues. We are all different individuals, we have goals and dreams to manifest in our life span. At present I need to have my heart check to see if my heart is tough enough for the big operation of an old Kidney transplant removal and a new grafted donor Kidney inserted in to the old spot. My fingers are crossed this works out okay for me and the heart is a super trooper like the Feisty Renal Warrior that takes care of the heart inside <3 I believe in prayer I trust it will open doors for my highest good. I trust what's for me, certainly wont pass me by. I leave my love with you dear readers. I thank you for your Followership. The Author Liz McCue
Hello, dear readers. I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas, a Happy healthy new year for2020. For all of us patients waiting patiently for our gift of life, Please God may our transplants come soon. At present, I’m temporarily suspended from my Kidney transplant list due to pneumonia early on in the year this left my body very weak and I need to build myself up, with special medicine drinks. My dietician Joanne has helped me greatly, for this I am grateful for her concern. I have started a new regime on my kidney dialysis machine It’s an up to date dialyzer that helps me reduce the body fluids in my system. That the older dialyzers could not remove. I am praying hard it does the trick for me. The only fault at present is I am getting low blood pressure now this might be nothing to do with the new dialyzer. However, it is a concern because I need the odd extra session in the week. All I am hoping is when I do the work up in the New Year is that I am fit and capable to join all my comrades and other warriors back on the 2020 list. For those that pray please offer up a prayer for all our special intentions. For this, I give you all great gratitude from the Renal Warrior Lizzy bits
I was taken off the Kidney Transplant list temporarily, due to a stint in hospital for a few weeks/. This has deflated me greatly. As anyone on the Transplant list could tell you. I have a 2 yearly update due soon. All patients are reviewed every 24 months. To check for their fitness and we are in good health. I wait patiently for my consultant Dr, to brake the news to me, as he has the answers I need. God bless the man. He was on a cycling vacation, peddling in the Italian alps or some other beautiful location. What a dedicated man he is for keeping his heart and body in great working order, I know this might seem extreme, to me our doctor is the best. He cares about all our welfares greatly. He agrees with what I say because he knows I know my own body and mind, after spending 10 years as a Kidney patient in England, in a Nephrology renal hospital in Oxfordshire. Every week I would do my 3 days on my dialysis machine. I spent 5 hours of my day having my blood cleansed, of waste toxins and have any fluids removed gently. The student nurses and interns to be would be learning from us, then the patients learnt from the student nurses. Win-win scenario all around. Our team were a jolly bunch and treated us with respect for the help we gave our nurses and carers. II long to get my final gift of life and live normally Namaste dear ones .
