WE APOLOGISE FOR THE DELAY…

..but what started as a trip to the doctor turned into a 9 day stay in hospital, dosed up on I.V. antibiotics!

WARNING WARNING WARNING

NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH OR FAINT HEARTED. NO, REALLY

YET MORE NASTY PHOTOS OF MY FOOT. AND THIS TIME THEY REALLY ARE GRUESOME! DON’T SAY YOU HAVEN’T BEEN WARNED!!

my apologies for the quality of some of the following pics, but they were snatched whilst the long suffering nurses tried to dress my “wound”

as most of you are aware, this is how it looked on leaving the hospital on the 19th march, and is indeed how it remained up to the 28th.

which is when it started to look like this..

and then on the 31st it looked thus

at which point, my good wife booked me an appointment at the docs. and by the time i got there on the 3rd april it looked like this…

needless to say she sent me up to the hospital, and over the next week and a bit it progressed as such…

staples doing a lot of good eh?

looked better once the dry skin had gone!

filling out nicely!

which brings us to today! healing well, with the aid of something called…well i forget, but i do know it contains silver to help it granulate! that and two different types of oral antibiotics, so the bottle of french brandy that a good forum buddy sent me will have to wait a bit longer!

so thats that for now. back in a week to have it checked, and the district nurse is calling to change the dressing every three days. i’m going to take a couple of days to catch up with what you guys have been up to, and then hopefully back to normality. thanks to all for your concern, and big big love to wifey for e-mithering you all and keeping you up to date!
cheers, cappy.
