The surgeon found 2 holes in my heart that no one knew about. So he fixed them.
Surgeon decided I was too young to have a valve replacement so did a repair.
Operation lasted about 5 hours.
Was in ICU for about a day, 6 of those hours were waiting for a bed in the cardiac ward.
I got out of hospital on Monday, 1 week after the operation.

I finally received my Maori heart after a 5 year battle, dying 12 times and spending more time in St Vincent's rather at home.
This thread isn't for me, this is for the young man (18 at the time) and his family saving me and my family.
The heart is technically 21 now so I think I have to celebrate lol
Please if you haven't already, go to https://donatelife.gov.au/ and register. But also talk to your loved ones so they don't block your wish. You don't need your organs where we end up, whether you're a believer or not.
I've always been a donor and still am today.

- Thread: My months of hell
Don’t fall over in horror that I’m back! I’m sure you were all hoping that I’d gone from the kennel for good!!
But you can’t keep a thoroughbred down for too long.
I don’t know how much you’ve heard about my absence but I’ll try to explain as best as I can.
I underwent open heart surgery in August and even though I was scared shitless, it wasn’t as bad as what the sook Jeff Fenech pretends it was.
He had similar op as me only they found two holes in the upper chamber of my heart and I didn’t cry once like he did!
I had a mitral valve repair.
And I bet that Mick Jagger didn’t cry over the same op either!
When I got out a few days later I went to the chemist to get my medication and the female chemist was ‘lovely enough’ to give me the wrong dose of Warfarin.
Instead of giving me 1½mgs she gave me 4mgs and I bled internally & was in absolute agony but I still didn’t cry like Fenech!
I was readmitted to hospital again where they did a CT scan & found a 6cm cyst on my pancreas. They discharged me 6 days later without any further medical intervention.
I went to my GP and insisted on getting another CT Scan because I was still in agony and just as well I did because the cyst had doubled its size to 12cm!
I was readmitted to hospital again and I underwent THE WORST HELL you could imagine.
They operated and found that the cyst had latched onto almost ever organ and as well as removing the cyst they had to remove ½ my pancreas/ my spleen/part of my large bowel and an adrenal gland! AND I still didn’t cry like Fenech!
The 2nd op was 2 hours longer than the heart operation. The Pancreas op was to take about 2 hours, but went for 5 hours.
Even though they took part of my bowel I can still talk shit just like you guys!
All up I have lost about 12kg, I am now 49kg, but at one stage was 47kg.
ATM, I look like a skeleton with skin.
Thanks to everyone that have thought about me.Last edited: Apr 2, 2020

- Thread: Newest Dog supporter
- Thread: My carpentry project
A while back there was a discussion about something I cant seem to recall, and I was talking about a bar table I was making from a timber slab and a number of people were interested in the project.
After several hours of planning and sanding I finally had my beautiful slab of raintree ready to be sealed. Unfortunately the slab was only about 14 months old, so I was not able to finish is with a varnish coating as the shrinking process which takes place as the timber ages would have caused the varnish to crack. So instead I gave it about 10 coats of linseed oil which will soak in nicely and protect the timber until i can safely expect it to no longer shrink. At this point i will coat it with a high gloss varnish.
The next step was to make the framework to hold the slab of timber. I used 70mm round steel for the 3 vertical poles, and 30mm x 2mm square steel for the horizontal pieces. All the welding and steel was then given a couple of coats of zinc spray to protect from rust, and 4 coats of hemmertone grey paint t to finish off.
I have finally finished my project, and I have to say I'm very happy with the result. It will be even better once I can finally give it a good lick of varnish in the future.
What do you think guys??

So I won't be posting for awhile.
Thanks for all the laughter & arguments.
Whether I love or dislike some of you, most of you have been a strength to me & thanks for all the good wishes.

- Thread: My cardiologist results
Had my usual 2 year echocardiogram (Echo) just January.
Went for the results on 11th Feb.
Not great news.
I have to get the mitral valve repaired or replaced.
Seeing as I don't have Private Health Insurance, I have to go on the wait list in the Public Hospital.
Going back to the cardiologist on 2nd April.
Have been put on blood thinning tablets. To see if that helps, or it's so I don't have a stroke.
When the Dr mentioned heart operation, I went into shock & went conveniently deaf. lol
I could see the Drs lips moving, but heard nothing.
I have had trouble breathing lately, but thought it was the QLD heat affecting me.
Will be asking heaps of questions when I see the Dr on the 2nd April.
I am allergic to pain, so may ask to be put into an induced coma for a week or two after the operation.
I should find out what category I am. I am assuming it will be Category 1 – Urgent (30 day wait) or Category 2 – Semi urgent. (90 day wait)
Apart from that, I am fighting fit.

@south of heaven @Sir Col "THE MU @ASSASSIN @dogluva
Just made this up in 10 minutes.
ODE TO DROP BEAR
When you joined us in July 15,
I didnt know how to feel.
An imposter on the forum,
a dirty slimey eel.
But this Drop Bear was different,
not here to cause a scene.
But take two rival forums,
and build bridges in between.
Your kind and caring nature,
distanced you far from a troll.
And you cared more for another,
despite your own health toll.
And never once a warning,
appeared upon your file.
We knew behind that screen though,
you would always crack a smile.
As you always would remind us,
of the Eels Dog aftermath.
And in exchange we'd offer up,
a nice Castle sponge bath.
You fought the fight for so long,
but sadly in the end.
You left us not a member,
but a truly treasured friend.
Your legacy in history,
on the forum White and Blue,
This poem as a tribute,
Pete, we will all greatly miss you.

- Thread: Merry Christmas
The family requested this news not be broadcast until they had contacted family overseas and around the country.
To all of the people that have been praying and sending their wishes, my family and I would like to extend our deepest and most heartfelt thanks. It has been a really hard time for us all since Dad got sick, and unfortunately he lost his battle on 31st August 2016. Our family are both devastated and exhausted after giving Dad 24 hour care since his release from hospital last week. While we have attempted to contact as many people as we could directly, I realise that due to unforeseen events, that some of his friends and family have been made aware of his passing in a much less personal and callous way. I apologise to anyone who had to hear this news over facebook. It was not my intention, but this decision was taken out of my hands when people started to post facebook messages about what had happened. I have deleted and untagged as many posts as I can, but this is another strain that I feel should not be placed on my family or myself at this time. In order to prevent further distress, I have decided to post this tonight for anyone who is not yet aware. I don't believe that anyone meant any harm, it is just unfortunate that people did not wait long enough for us to contact everyone before expressing themselves on facebook. Please don't be offended if you have received this news over Facebook rather than a phone call. It was not intentional.
Dad's funeral details will be announced in the QT newspaper next week on Tuesday, or if you would rather, you can contact me by personal message if you wish to attend. Once again, my family extends their heartfelt thanks for all the prayers and support we have received to date. I know Dad also appreciated hearing the messages that were left for him by friends. He was a wonderful man to many, a devoted husband to his wife, a fun and lively Pop to his grandchildren, a loving father to myself and my siblings and a dependable and caring friend to so, so many people. He will be greatly missed.
From Holly Elliott.
Perhaps it is fitting that this news should reach you all on Jersey Day - the day when we recognise the importance of Organ Donation - the day when we remember the remarkable young 13 yo Nathan Gremmo whose donated organs went to six recipients who are alive today due to his commitment to other people and the courage of his parents to ensure his wishes were upheld.
Peter needed a Kidney transplant to survive, but unfortunately it was never to be.
Nathan Gremmo is known for one quote - which I feel was written for Peter as well.
“ YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, BUT IF YOU DO IT RIGHT ONCE IS ENOUGH”
Peter was a great advocate for Organ Donor Awareness and was the instigator of an effort to have one NRL round each year dedicated to Organ Donor Awareness
We will do everything in our power to finish his work and bring this dream to fruition.
In the meantime check out http://www.jerseyday.com.au/index.html and do whatever seems right to you.
