Chelsea charity match

I will start with the health side of things. Im feeling alright at the moment. Im still on iv's as i agreed to have a 3rd week just to get my chest as clear as possible. My appetite is back and im not coughing lots so this extra week will hopefully keep me going for a little while. Im still abit breathless so am on and off the oxygen but am able to be off it for most of the day now. I had my needle changed yesterday, which stung like a bastard due to the numbing cream not working and being rubbed with an alcohol wipe over the hole the last needle came out of. Ouchie!!!

Last week was Scotty's birthday and we went for a nice meal and cinema with our friends Sirin and Carlton. Just before his bday, me and mum had a few hours to pick up a few little bits for him to open. Because I still wasnt great and because we only had a couple of hours to get around Bluewater, my mum suggested i go in a wheelchair. I have only ever been in a wheelchair when in hospital, and am so stubborn, I would rather push myself to the absolute limit than give in. However, I needed to go and knew I wouldnt make it round so I agreed and we borrowed a wheelchair from a family friend. It broke my heart to have to be pushed round in it, im only 22 for god sake, but it did make the trip so much easier.

I got alot of stares and i can understand why. Other than being abit pale and skinny, i dont look ill and you wouldnt know, i didnt have oxygen on, i was moving about and my legs were moving (so they knew i could walk), and im young, so people must just wonder why im in a wheelchair. I wish it was just because i was mucking around and being lazy!! We did laugh alot though. Mum bashed the chair on many aisles and got me caught on various things, and then didnt know what to do with me when she went to pay for things so often dumped me somewhere in the shop haha!! I was impressed with the card i got Scott:

Tuesday finally came and it was an early start having to leave the house at 7am. For those who dont know, CF patients dont do early mornings!! We have sooo much to do before leaving the house and we also need our sleep lol. It was the CF Trust charity football match at Chelsea football club. The team was made up of people that have a link with CF and celebrities who support the charity, and we would be playing against the members of parliament team. There were 6 of us that went; me, danny, mum, dad, dad's partner Lisa and my friend Steph. It took us 2 hours to get to Stamford bridge in rush hour traffic but we made it. The match was very funny and everyone got to play 40 minutes in total on the pitch. My little bro scored a hatrick!!! The match ended 6-4 to us - wahoo!!

After the match we went to the presentation. There were a few speeches and then everyone went up to receive their little trophys. We were sitting at our table talking about the trophy and pictures when danny got called back up and given another trophy as he was voted 'man of the match'. We then went to the chelsea store and got the new chelsea shirt and made our way home. It was a long day but it couldnt have gone any better. The amount raised is still being counted and brought in but it was estimated to be about £30,000 which is great for such a small event. I was so proud of danny and i know everyone else was too.

I will upload the pics once ive collected them all as 3 different cameras were used, but here is a few...

Oh...I just remembered....I got my court date. Its on the 18th June. Lets fight!!

x Lots of love x
