Here is the lastest on my son.


He has been to theatre today and he still has his leg - for now.....

The surgeons decided to wash out the inside of the leg and then vacuum any 'slough' away, then leave the leg a day or two and she what develops.

So they have closed the wound on one half of the leg only (the wound is from the knee down to the ankle) he has a big tube in the other side which is draining all the time, and the muscle is still very swollen.

He has spiked a temperature since he has come back from theatre though, it was 80.2 when I was talking him just now, and he has a rapid pulse, but his BP is normal.

So they are giving him med's to try to bring the temp down, and have taken blood to check it for infection - it could be that the trauma of the op today has caused the rise in temp - we shall have to see, he is also back on a morphine pump just for 24 hours.

He still can't move his toes, and he has no feeling in them either, but he has a pulse in the leg, it could be nerve damage, but again they can't say as yet.

That's the news on Jamie at the moment....

He is still not out of the woods yet and has a long way to go, but he is holding on at the moment.

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers, Jamie thanks you too as I have told him about you all.

Bless you. XX

Donnie, that is all great news!! Considering the alternative news you could have been giving us that is very positive. He is definitely in the right place and it is very positive that they are doing so much to help save his leg. If they thought there was no chance they would just have taken the easiest option and amputated. Fingers crossed for him x
