Since I returned home on Tuesday my feet haven't touched the floor! I'm so grateful to the various specialists and consultants who have been amazing in seeing me at such short notice this week and are helping me have the best chance of getting onto Denali. Everyday I've been either for treatment, dressing change or a consultation. It had to be like that, but I'm looking forward to having a chilled week next week. The feedback is positive under normal circumstances, but it's the recovery time, or lack of it, that's the issue. Itâ€™s been such a whirlwind that I haven't had time to process everything and clear my head yet. I don't even feel like I've processed the summit yet!!
Lazarus my toe is much the same really, the dead tissue is drying nicely and although looks pretty gross is in good shape. It is aching and throbbing at times which is really positive as it's a sign of blood flow and nerve regeneration. I'm aware though that it's a very slow process.
It's been awesome seeing my dog Ben, weâ€™ve got matching bad feet now! And obviously it's been great to see my folks, the challenge team and some of my mates. The support is a little overwhelming to be honest, humbling in fact. I'm very proud of what we are trying to achieve and I love that I'm able to share my journey with everyone following me. I am looking forward to watching Wales take on the Baa-Baas today, the WRU have been awesome since day one supporting the challenge. My beard is doing my head in! On expedition shaving is the last of my thoughts, and I've appreciated a little facial protection, but now I'm home it's just annoying! It's gonna go soon!!
