Cant believe I haven’t blogged since 26th April!!
Its all change since then and it seems as though a lot has happened.
3rd May I picked up my leg from the Nuffield; having been counting down the days to get my leg the day didn’t disappoint, I spent some time in the fitting room getting the fit of my socket and the alignment of the leg right, after that I went down for a small amount of physio. The physio had mentioned to me that I was walking like I had the leg a few weeks rather than a few minutes.
Since then I have been having physio four times a week, moving from the bars, to two sticks, down to one and now I am walking around UNAIDED; feels amazing! It is very tiring and I am sure it will take months to get use to the amount of energy needed to just walk and I will always face difficulties along the way.
25th May was a tough session at physio, wearing 6 socks the socket was still too big and it made doing anything hard work, this led to a bit of a down day on the 26th but luckily on the 27th I picked up my new socket which was a much better fit and since then have been cracking on with physio and walking. Last week was a really good week, everything seemed to work and I have been walking more and more outside of physio.
Socially I have been up to a lot really, I had the Bletchley Ladies Awards night which was a lovely evening and it was lovely to get all dressed up. I got given the Grange Award; for outstanding attitude, determination all around doggedness. Truly honoured to receive this recognition from the team/club. My time as a player for Bletchley was short but sweet but I will forever be part of the Bletchley family and I cannot thank them all enough for what they have done.
I have been up to a lot more so please see the below pictures to see what I have been up to, sorry for the short post but I know a lot of you have been bugging me for one😉 I am still at physio four times a week but focusing on different things now that I am able to walk unaided such as uneven ground, obstacles, crossing feet over ect;
