I was only operating at about 80% of my capacity.
It's a really exciting time to be involved in Welsh rugby.
I was diagnosed with the illness right before the 1995 World Cup.
I thought about dying whenever I got bad news about other people.
I am very excited to be here in Wales and look forward to putting on the Cardiff Blues shirt.
The biggest thing for me is just to get out on that field. Just to do that will be incredible.
It's been a long road back to health and fitness for me. I am just glad to have been given the opportunity to do what I love most.
How do I take a step? How do I lift my foot off the ground, move it through the air a little bit and then bring it down? I had to teach myself to walk again.
Towards the end of 2003 it was hard to get through training - and the darkest point was when a doctor told me there was a possibility I could end up in a wheelchair.
I was on dialysis for 18 months before the transplant, so it was important I tried to look ahead to days like my comeback this Saturday. You need those big goals to drive you on.
