10th July
It has been 6 months since the accident and although I have come a long way my body is still struggling to heal.My left leg wasn’t salvageable and on my my right leg the tibia and fibula were completely snapped through.
The titanium rod you see was inserted to support it.
Although there has been new bone regeneration there is a section where this has not happened.
Now this could simply be down to the passage of time, however
If there isn’t an improvement in 3 months then other measures may be needed.
Let’s hope TIME IS ON MY SIDE.




Please give me your prayers,
Your positive energy, and your will to help heal my bones!
🙏🏽!

9th July

6 months since myself and Wayne Sharpe’s life was forever changed.
So much has been achieved but there is still a long way to go both mentally and physically.
There is a lot that goes on in the mind of a new amputee and I have been told that the first 2 years are the most difficult. I can only hope that those of you that do find themselves overwhelmed by it all, know that it is only natural to do so.
Stop kicking yourself for feeling down, for being sensitive, for having moments of despair. All of this is NATURAL.
You are emotionally no different than anyone else.
This is a process.

I only hope that you are not burdened with other issues outside of your Rehabilitation as this will only add to the issues you have with being an amputee. Those issues that you don’t speak of to non amputees. They simply won’t get it.

STAY STRONG my brothers and sisters the finishing line may seem far off but before you know it you will cross the line

Making myself accountable again because if I don’t then I will eat ALL the foods! Not that there’s anything wrong with that of course but I had fully intended to be looking better than this by July but life got in the way and I lost my way. Iv found because I don’t have a full time job now Iv got comfortable with knowing my pension is there for me and Iv found myself not getting my day started until 10am and that just isn’t me, so it’s time I start focusing again so alarms set every day for 6am and it will be swimming or morning cardio alongside the usual gym and the food will hopefully slot into line aswell. It’s all about accountability with how we look 👀 and it’s in our own hands to make the changes. Have a great day/evening where ever you are in the world 🌍

Feeling better today after having a TIA transient ischemic attack - a mini stroke as some call it on Wed 7-4. Let me tell ya, that was super scary. Thankful no permanent damage! So I decided to get a little walk in around the courtyard. Slowly but surely I’ll get my strength back. #amputeelife #amputeeproud #amputeestrong #nevergiveup

Recently I have been given a choice of the following legs. My mind was made up for the C-leg however I have been told to consider All options as other brands seem to have more features as well as the option for a hydraulic foot. Although I understand it is a personal preference and subjective I would be grateful if anyone can relate or to share their experiences. Or if not Then simply the brand you have chosen.
MANY THANKS...

Whenever I feel the slightest bit down which in my case can in truth be for hours or days I think of who brought me back to the land of the living.
My children, my wife, the love I have for them and the love they have for me.
The inescapable reason I came back to this world. I fought to remain here and with help succeeded!

Love will win everytime!
My bones may have broke, my limb torn from me but our love will never be broken.

3rd July 2018
Recast no 2..
When you lose your limb above your knee regardless of how much you exercise the muscle in your thigh wastes away, and after nearly 4 months, today was the day when I was recast for a new socket.
You have a socket, knee and foot plate and all work independently.
The socket resembles the rest of your leg which once it fits inside it should fit snugly.
When it doesn’t you have to add extra socks to your limb to make it fit which as you can well imagine becomes tiresome and more difficult for you to walk when your leg slips in and out of it

As you can imagine today therefore is a GREAT DAY, as it becomes a signpost for a closer step towards happier days.


I hope for other new amputees my journey in some way helps you along the way!


Keep strong...Be forever mindful of what is important and keep pushing.

Excuse the not so pretty pictures.
Some times us amputees especially myself can seem like an absolutely miserable unhappy, ungrateful anti social bastard , granted sometimes I am those things naturally 🤷🏻‍♂️ I’m only human 😂 but a lot of the time it can be a factor you don’t see on the outside.
90% of the time I’m all smiles but.... 1- it’s takes us double amputees upto 300% more effort just to walk in a straight line as it does an able bodied.

2- as a result we may just be tired.
3- mental health can mean we react differently in social circles or in day to day life.
4- we could be hiding things like this 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 I always seem to get an infection 3/4 times a year on my left leg and always in the same spot. Its Red hot, swollen to the point it’s a squeeze to get my leg on and painful as fuck. Behind the smiles or lack of could be a whole host of issues you may not understand.
Time to dig out some magic pills and a cup of harden the fuck up and crack on.

June 28th, 1981 Terry Fox passed after his courageous battle and his accomplishments, what he did for cancer as well as highlighted what amputees are capable of! Take time today to remember and if you don’t know take time today to find out. #limbloss #amputeestrong #terryfox #amputeelife #amputeeproud

I try to find the positive in negative situation & a little laughter doesn’t hurt #amputeelife #amputeeproud #amputeestrong #nevergiveup
