13th APRIL HOME LEAVE! Sophia can be heard wanting to hide me from strangers...so sweet! One of the few pleasures I had whilst rehabilitating was coming home for a couple of days at the weekend. My family had not seen me in our home since the accident happened. I had no idea of the effect it would have on me. • I spent my first weekend simply sitting sandwiched in between my girls. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many animated cartoons and films in my life but there was no other place I would have been if I had had the choice. • • On leaving the house I remember looking at a family photo on the wall and in that moment realising once again what my loved ones had nearly lost. I couldn’t say what I would have lost because I would have been in another plane of existence, hopefully able to watch over them in some form or another. For me I wouldn’t have experienced any sensation ever again but the emotional turmoil it would have caused my family was just too much for me to bare. • • I wiped the tears from my face whilst my back was turned. ‘Daddy, are you ok’ Gabriella asked. ‘Never better my darling...see you next weekend’ • • • • #amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel

15th APRIL 2018 Who would have thought that climbing stairs would take so much thought and effort. Well I’m here to tell you that as a new amputee it takes quite a lot. In my case it also takes a lot of pain tolerance. • One antidote to all that pain however are my children. They are an unbelievable source of power that I am fortunate enough to have in my life. Without them I don’t think I would be as determined or willing to go that extra mile. For those of you that don’t have children, wives, husbands or family then I guess your power comes from your indomitable spirit. If not then I hope you find your source. Without mine I don’t know what I would do. • • • • • #amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel

15th APRIL 2018 After staying in hospital for two months before arriving At the ARU, it was an amazing feeling being able to stand and walk again. • • The ability to walk is something that is very much taken for granted. Just as much as so many other blessings that mainly go unnoticed. This is mainly due to the fact that most have not had to deal with such a life changing experience or even know anyone who has. Now we all have seen the odd advert on tv or Facebook that portray a sick child, a child with cancer, the blind who require guide dogs etc. In truth however we all have simply thought ‘how unfortunate’ Well I am here to tell you that those unfortunate persons could be you one day and although you may say ‘I wouldn’t want that to happen me’ Life doesn’t always give you the ability to choose. • I hope that every one of you live HEALTHY, HAPPY LIVES.. However when you are feeling a little bit down. When you are stressing about the rent or the credit card bill. Try to remind yourself what could be worse. What could be harder. What is it that could happen to you that would allow those thoughts to turn to ‘life really isn’t that bad’ And know then that in that moment you have truly understood what it means to be alive. •• ‘Your HEALTH IS MOST DEFINITELY YOUR WEALTH’ • • • • #amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel

10th April. Having A new leg that can help you mobilise is extremely liberating. For those that will never have the opportunity to own one I feel your pain. I am all things considered one of the luckier ones. I live in a country where my health can be taken care of within our National Health Service(NHS). • One thing I will never understand is how privileged we all are in this country but how many people complain about the NHS. If there are waiting times then wait. If your matter is urgent then your persistence and determination to find a solution will WORK. • In regards to what they have done for me and will continue to do throughout my lifetime I cannot thank them enough. And for all of those that came before us and helped bring about the NHS..THANKYOU! Be thankful. amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemode

Still not up on my paws yet.... resting up in a lovely blanket

27th March Amputee Rehabilitation Unit! Motivation is key to any success. Life can at times be hard but then again no matter what problem you have, there always will be more of them. That’s life. Sometimes things turn out ok and other times they don’t. There is no maliciousness about it. Things simply happen. If you want to improve your mental state only you can change how you think. If you want to improve your physical state only you can change it. Ultimately the only person who can make you a better person is you.. So let’s get on living shall we? amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel

1* Pretending to sleep - two friends dreamed about me this week, one that I had died and the other that I explained my death-related work to her. I did have a tiny "death scare" three night ago, caused by a strange 5htp/serotonin side effect - neurotransmitters going haywire causing intense dizzy spells that made me consider calling an ambulance, but most of all made me wonder if Samadhi would eat my corpse if I would die at home. 2* I keep a tiny piece of Samadhi's tail inside this little nut container. His tail got amputated when he was six months old and a piece of skin came off the wound when it healed. 3* Each morning Samadhi does a purging ritual. He goes out into the garden, eats grass, and pukes it up two minutes later, together with excessive fur he licks up by grooming which his stomach cannot process. Most cats let the hairballs build up inside their body until they get sick and need to expell them. Samadhi purges every morning and throws up only a small amount of hair, as if to prevent hairballs altogether. I admire his strength and wisdom. 👵🏻 🐈 #secretselfie #asleep #nomakeup #theweekoninstagram #sleepingselfie #samadhi #satori #crobatia #rituals #oddities #blackcat #taillesscat #notail #amputee #amputeecat #sleepforever #secrets #5htp #shh

Hang on ... one ... two ... three ........ EXCUSE ME DID YOU KNOW YOU'RE MISSING A LEG #rudedog #amputeecat #sillypuppy #deltadog #goldenretriever #puppy #rescuecat

9th APRIL 3 months since the accident! On this day I did an appeal for anyone who might have seen who the person was who caused the accident. over 20,000 views and generated by so many friends and concerned people! Again THANKYOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT. It may in the future I hope jog someone’s memory but as of today not one person has come forward. It’s pretty shameful really but guess it is the world we live in. Someone can nearly kill us and get away with it. The laws that govern us have gone mad. I however have to worry less about such things and get on with life. • • What’s most important to you at the most crucial time?....for me it’s always my children and they give me every inspiration to try my best for them. And so long as the seconds keep ticking for me I’ll try my very best to utilise every single one. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel.

As well as losing a left leg there was also a high degree of damage done to my right leg. The surgeons were considering amputation but fortunately for me there was no vascular damage. Amazing really when you analyse everything else. This being one of many reasons as to why I felt appreciative of the fact that I was very much ALIVE! and could not in good conscience wallow about what I had lost. If anything I had to celebrate and be very thankful for what I still HAD. This TITANIUM ROD is now a part of me and will for the rest of my life. Without it I wouldn’t have been able to stand. Without it my life would so much harder. • As I have stated to close friends and family,when I nearly crossed over I didn’t think about money. I didn’t think about possessions. The ONLY thing I thought of was who I loved and who in turn loved me. • It is very easy to miss what is important and very easy to complain about so many things. Concentrate on what lies just below the surface. You can see. You can hear. You can question. You can breathe. • You have life,......SO LIVE! amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel

28th MARCH 2018 Within 7 DAYS of taking my cast I finally had my FIRST leg.. I can’t really explain the feeling I had when I stood up on it for the first time and how happy I was to receive it. When I walked on it I could finally see a future where I wouldn’t have the same worries as I had envisaged after that fateful day on JAN 9th. The future looked a little clearer. My children could smile a little brighter. I could get on with life a lot happier. #happy #amputeelife #amputee #amputeestrong #amputeeproblems #amputeepride #amputees #amputeesdoitbetter #amputeesrock #amputeeproud #amputeefitness #amputeeman #amputeecrossfit #amputeeissues #amputeeawareness #amputeethatlifts #amputeeandnotstoping #amputeebodybuilding #amputeemartialarts #amputeeinspiration #amputeeyoga #amputeecat #amputeeswag #amputeemodel
