Resourceful and unselfish
« on: Wednesday 25 March 20 10:32 GMT (UK) »
There is a lovely story in the 1 this morning. The man had suffered a badly broken leg a couple of years ago resulting in, earlier this year, a lower limb amputation.
Becasue of the current situation his appointments for a prosthetic limb have been put back for many months.
His resourceful wife came up with a temporary job using bits and pieces of timber she found in the garden shed and their son's old plastic seaside bucket, together with a modified Moon Boot. It works and enables him to move around without the use of a wheelchair.
He said "I do not want to divert anybody in the NHS from anything much more important at this time. There are people out there far worse off than me"
