Happy Monday!

Last Monday the Infection Team were on the ball and by my bed nice and early. I was advised that with the data from the blood test taken the day before new tactics should be put in place. One of the intravenous antibiotics I was taking needed to be increased and a new antibiotic was […]

First proper Physio session

At Cadets on Monday evening I managed 4hrs with my prosthetic leg on, probably a new record and probably enough for that day. I didn’t wear it at all on Tuesday, as I was busy sitting at the PC all day. Wednesday afternoon was my first proper Physio session since my surgery, long time coming […]

A better day

Yesterday was tough and I have to admit I had a blip in the afternoon. We had been out for a drive over the Black Mountains, which were stunning, but the weather was not great for photography. We went by some reservoirs looking for places to stop and get some photos and the more we […]
