I started a new Life! Spot the difference

I decided that today was the time for another picture of me for people who follow this blog.The purpose of which is a spot the difference to other pictures that I have posted.
I wonder how long it will take people to notice the difference please post your suggestions as comments on this post and lets see who is the first to get the right answer? You may need to post anonymously as certain people have been having problems with comments on the blog just add your name at the end of the comment.Good luck!! 
As you can also see I am really happy and I hope it will not be to much longer before the doctors agree that is time for me to have a bit of time back home.
The process is far from over now as the monitoring process starts now to make sure that the organs are kept in good condition and initially I will be travelling to hospital as often as twice a week for checks on medication levels and other checks which will continue for the rest of my life.

At present Harefields Hospital has 1200 people who are receiving follow-up care after transplant the longest being about 20 years post transplant the club here is called the hamster club hence the hamster on the bottom of the blog if you haven't seen it, scroll down to the bottom of this screen and give it some of its food.
 I am so happy to be joining them as one of the next generation!

Please don't forget if you have any questions I also have a formspring form at the bottom of the blog where you can ask any transplant related questions you have. if I don't know I will try to find out.

You can ask me something about how I feel about the transplant if you like although I might not know at this stage as the whole thing is new to me!
