On the news last night was story about Zoe Chambers, the little girl who had a heart transplant at the Freeman a few weeks ago, and she is now able to go home.

She looks so well. I know she has lifetime of problems ahead of her but she has a chance of life. I am so happy for her parents, that they get to take her home after she was so close to death a few short weeks ago and it is a real testament of the ability of the cardiac team at the Freeman, who are an amazing group of people.

Obviously I can't help but feel sad when I read Zoe's story because Jamie couldn't be saved but I know it was because his little body was too poorly, not because the heart couldn't be corrected. He was in the best place, with the best team. And Zoe's story really shows what can be done.
