Well after 2 years. Last month i had the sutures removed.
I am now sitting here reading this site WITHOUT yes without my magnifying glass or text to speech.
I will still be registered blind for a while as it may reject at any time. Fingers crossed it wont
I can read to my children, i can play a ds wooooooooooo. must buy games now.
I can even thread a special needle.

As i obviously cannot thank my personal donor. I want to thank all of you out there who donate. You should be proud of yourselves. Cos one like you has given me back a more productive life.
I saw the sea this year after many years of just hearing it.
Thank you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Bless you.

I have always told my children I want to donate anything and everything I can. I understand they have the last decision on the matter, even if I do or don't carry a donor card...

But this post has made me look into it more today.

This is why I have a donor card!

Great news and brings alump to the throat! And it's good to see something nice here! I suffer from very poor eyesight but not classed as blind so know how precious our eyes are and I have also agreed to donate my corneas (if anyone wants them!!) in the event of something happening.

Really pleased for you! Enjoy your new found vision and good luck for the other eye.

Yes I have a donor card as well, I wish you good luck .

Am i right to understand a donor card means nothing anyway???
It is always up to the next of kin?

You are, which is why you tell your family you have a donor card, and inform them if they go against your wishes you will haunt them for all eternity :)

Good luck with your sight. May it now be with you all your days. Thanks to all of the families of donors. This shows why people do it. Lets hope more donors sign up on the back of your fantastic news.

Thats fantastic, I am so pleased for you, a friend of mine had a kidney transplant and the difference it has made to her quality of life is amazing.

Enjoy and good luck with the transplant.

I didn't think a will got read until after the funeral? Not really sure though.

The best thing is to make sure all your next of kin understand how your feel.

thank you all.
They are sending me for glasses. So apparently sight can be even better.
As mad as it sounds i dont know how good sight is if its good lol.
Yes a will overrides the family wishes.

Sadly i cant be a donor of any body part. Once youve had a transplant of any kind you cant donate. Sadly.
Its due to cells i believe.> but not certain.
I have thought of selling my story to magazine when the other eye is done then donate to the charity, at least then i can give something.
Thank you to those who carry the card.

Just been looking at the donor web site. I see thousands are waiting for a transplant.

I am being a little contraversial here, but when large medical companies start to grow skin or organs. You know like ears on mice, and using pigs for organs that dna match. They will be selling them to the NHS, not giving them away.

With the massive demand for donors, if there was a financial incentive for the donors family (If the donor wished his organs for sale) to donate, would people see a problem in this???

Hi there,
i just wanted to say hello and im sooo happy for you and your family for your new lease of sight :)
I am a donor, i give blood and try and do what i can to help people like yourself
fingers crossed that it doesnt deteriorate and you will be blessed with sight for the rest of your living days :thumbsup: :friends:
#18
I expect half the people on here will be welling up reading your post.

So happy that you can now do all the things most people take for granted.

Told my family I want to donate anything of use when I go, as others have said its often grieving families who are the problem.

Repped you for posting this and giving us all something to really think about:thumbsup:

Good luck with the second graft xx

Wow!! Thank you for sharing this with us. Its really nice to know that positive things happen. sometimes with all the depressing things that are portrayed day in day out in the media you loose sight (no pun intended) of the truly miraculous things that can happen.

One of the girls I went to college with was born deaf and blind. through operations she was given some sight when she was a baby but she can remember the day she woke up in the hospital after they had operated on her ears and she heard her mums voice for the first time.

for reasons like hers and yours I've always said that they can take anything of mine when I'm gone its not like i'm gonna need them!!

So chuffed for you and bless the donor and their family. Imagine how many more people that one selfless act helped!
