AKA Day 2

31st October 2015 – Day 2

The usual interrupted nights sleep as nurses come in and give me more IV antibiotics and painkillers.

Woke up this morning and the residual limb is feeling much better than last night.

Still stuck in bed for now, but Im fine with that as I can rest my leg more comfortably.

The dressing had come loose again so it was changed and reapplied today. This gave me an opportunity to look at my leg.  I was able to take a picture of the end of my leg which I cannot see and notice that there is a lot of bruising. This would account for the tenderness.

Left a message with the Wheelchair service today who were closed due to the weekend. I asked them to contact me ASAP as my wheelchair supplied by them needs adjusting as now the Centre of Gravity has changed and has now made it unstable.
