Bug War I

Important Information – Yesterday’s post was entitled Exercise “Battle of the Bug”, it marked the start of the story in my battle with a serious knee infection. Although it had a lovely little ring to it, it didn’t seem quite right in hindsight. For me as an amateur writer this is a big thing to […]

A big update

Wow, has it really been that long since I last did a blog post? Either I’m slacking, there has been nothing much happen or I’ve been busy. I think it’s a bit of everything really, let me do a bit of catching up and tell you what’s been happening. The Job Centre are helping me […]

Painful but productive physio session

Let’s get the rant done first. Didn’t get to see Lynne as she was busy, completely understandable. Was asked to try half a thin sock at the top of the socket, tried, didn’t work (made it worse), threw it out, carried on in pain. Physio will talk to Lynne to see if they can come […]

Your doing better than you think

Gail who is another lady in my group is lovely but the whole amputation thing has been much harder for her than it has been for me. She is one of a minority group as she is a through knee amputee, a very rare breed, and when we spoke in the past I gave her […]
