    I'm so sorry you're in pain.

    Thank you I am ready for theatre in a little while. I have had 2 units of blood and I am as ready as I ever will be. The leg needs saving but if it's not to be then so be it. The main thing is the infection and that needs serious attention. Keep good brave thoughts xxxx

    Thank you so much friends and I mean that in the truest sense. I am back in my room. I still have 2 legs. I was opened knee to bum. All prostheses were removed and I was jet wash! Wound vac inside.

    I will have spinal til at least Monday and catheter. I am non weight bearing which was to be expected. They got me a hopper frame, so you lean your forearms to take your weight. I managed in a chair for 30 mins. The physios will be back Monday. After meetings with OT I need to talk buggies and electric chairs. This is going to take a long time. You all know how I'm feeling with tears streaming down my face, the what ifs and what's to come, it's scary but I need to get to plants there has to be a way. I will not give up but its very very hard. Hugs and love to you allxxx
