My name is Skyye. I am 35 years young. I am a wife, I am a mother. I was a strong independent woman as my husband worked away. Even though i have diabetes and renal failure i have always been determined and independent to look after myself and my family well. Due to my renal failure I am awaiting a kidney and pancreas transplant.

I have currently been in hospital for nearly 13 weeks. I am in hospital because I was struck down with a leg infection. After several attempts at surgically cleaning out the infection I received the devastating news that I would lose my lower right leg. Since hearing this news I have undergone amputation of my infected lower right leg. I am now awaiting rehabilitation. My body is so decommissioned that I will need to learn to walk again. My left leg has very little muscle tone and strength. The journey has been frightening, stressful and very emotional for our whole family. My husband has had to return from work without pay to look after our child and to support me on this recovery journey. This process of rehabilitation is going to be a long long hard road. I write our little story to ask for any help, to help us with our struggles along the way. Thanks x
