Hi, my name is Lucie.
The main reason why I decided to write this blog is, that I have transplanted kidney and I would like to write about my life with it. When I was going through the process 10 years ago, there were not many information available about it. Today it is different but most of the information are written from the medical point of view.
In this blog I would like to write about it from the “patient” point of view, to write about my life and how the transplanted kidney does or does not affect some parts of it and maybe show some other potential other patients that it is possible to live normal life after the transplantation.
Also it is not always easy to explain what it means and feels like to live with transplanted kidney to people who never came into contact with it. And sometimes I just don’t want to. So now I want to describe everything here and in case there is someone interested in details, I can just say “Take a look at my blog”.
But this blog is not meant to be only about transplantation. I would like it to be more like a diary of things that happen to me, about my thoughts, feelings, ideas, opinions, about things I like or don’t like, etc. So, If you want to ask me something, discuss or comment something, you are more than welcome!
Maybe I should add explanation why I am writing this blog in English instead of Czech. Well, to be honest sometimes, actually many times, I feel like I can better explain my feelings or emotions in English. It just kind of has better or more suitable expressions. And also if this stuff is written in English, it can reach more people who might find it interesting or helpful.
Well, now something more about me. I’m (soon to be) 34 years old divorced single mother of a little girl named Ema, living in Prague, which is capital of the Czech republic. I work as an office manager in Game Dev Hub, which is a co-working space for mobile game developers. It’s pretty fun working for gaming companies as part of my job is, guess what, playing games!
I am also enthusiastic runner and I love talking about it! I don’t run long distances and I don’t run very fast but I love it! In addition I like watching movies, listening music, reading books, dancing, cooking and going for loooong walks to nature.
Enjoy the reading!
