Goodies from the Hospital

I was excited about this morning, not about getting up at 06:00 but going for my casting. Nothing I haven’t done before but this was for my first long term socket, which will hopefully make life easier and resolve some, if not all, my issues. Lynne (my Prosthetist) brought in the liner I will be […]

A sad trip

Ely Parade

It’s all been rather quiet and I’ve mainly been recovering from the physio session from hell the other week. Yes it really has taken that long for my back and knee to recover and I can’t believe all that pain came from stretching exercises. Of course I did my patriotic bit and watched the Jubilee […]
