Two stage surgery

So, here we are again, on the Eve of yet more surgery. I’ve been in the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford for four days now. It feels like a strange place because it’s an NHS (National Health Service) Hospital yet feels more like a private one in many ways. I have to question the common sense […]

So much snow!

Last night phantom pain wise it was pretty good, I think we are more or less back to where we were before the form cuff experience last Wednesday. So on to this morning and I was amazed at just how much snow we had here. In some places it was at least 6 inches deep, […]
