Anglia News Tonight (Friday) [Updated!]

Posted by Oli on Friday 28th December, 2007

Full post coming later, as per usual, but just a quickie to say you can see the all new fit and healthy me on Anglia News tonight at 6.30pm.  Failing which, for those of you too impatient to wait for the news or who live outside the Anglia region, you can click the link below and watch the piece on the good ol’ interweb.

Watch in amazement as I run up stairs, talk rubbishly about post-transplantyness and stand on a freezing cold lakeshore with K pretending to look like we’re there for fun!  And look out for Mummy L’s perfect post-tx soundbite….

    You really are a STAR and already appearing on the local TV channel, I just can’t believe it!! Oli, as each day passes you spring a surprise on me it certainly sounds as though you are going from strength to strength; I’m really happy for you. At this rate you will be challenging Christopher for a game of football. Unfortunately unable to get Anglia but will get mum to watch and record ‘the’ programme for me. (Shall also attempt to watch it from your blog site.) Love to Kati & family. Big hug and kisses Jean and the boys xxxx

    Just watched the news piece on the internet. Even though you have been a bit poorly over xmas, you look sooo well, even more so than when we saw you last week.

    Keep up the walking and looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Just saw the TV news of you post transplant, and it has made me even more determined to get my transplant. The difference was amazing. Seeing you run up the stairs.. got me and my partner very emotional. You look so well Oli.

    Keep it up.

    Oli – Seeing you on the Anglian link you were truly amazing – it certainly brought a few tears to the eyes. I know that ‘Lake’, and who ever thought I would witness you walking round that Lake, hand in hand with K and feeling good. Love to you all Jean & boys xxxx
