'How was Folly Farm boys?' 'Daaadddd...!!!' 'Yes Zack?' 'The Daddy Lion wee'd all over Luca!' 'What? Really?' 'Yes Dad... He wee'd on his face and jacket' 'Ummmmm OK... 🙈' 'What else did you do?' 'We went to the beach and Tenby' 'How was that?' 'OK.. Luca fell out of his chair though...' 'How?' 'Mum left his anti tipper off' 'So Mum is looking after you then? 🙈😂🙈' 'Of course Dad. She has made us Chicken goujons! Oh. And Ice cream!' Happy holidays boys!  See you tomorrow for a sensible game of Monopoly 😂😉 #forluca #sons #brothers #brotherlylove #zoo #dad #proudfather
Have you ever seen a happier face!? Folly Farm in the rain seems to work every time... Before you left this morning you said one thing to me... It made me realise how much effort you put in each and every day... 'I will go out and do everything I did on my normal legs Dad. If not I'll do it on my bum!' I didn't get time to add a positive reply just smiled and said... 'I am so proud of you Luca!' Never let anything or anyone stop you smiling Luca... It has only been 6 years and you have changed my life for the better and you have so much more to share... #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #smile
'Did I ever have legs Dad...' 'Yes handsome... Until you were 3' 'Oh...' 'Why handsome?' 'I just wondered Dad...' The minute you ask that question my mind goes into overdrive... I worry that anything I say could upset you or make you miss the past... Instead we sat looking through old pics and planning all the things you can do with your new clip on legs!  Bristol Aquarium is planned for Tues after your hospital trip... This picture was the last time you went in Nov 2011... Your smile and your spirit has not changed one bit!! #forluca #son #smile #pose #amputeelife
'What are you going to do when your frame comes off handsome?' 'Just Swim Dad... Just go to the pool and swim for miles!' It is not just the pain you manage that makes you brave... Its the mental strength to block put do many things you love!  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #fridayfeeling
Boys..?? Have you been sat on the Xbox while I'm away?? No Dad. We've been making stuff and chilling... Busted!! #forluca #sons #brothers #brotherlylove #smile #pose #xbox
Tonight's post is dedicated to the amazing team UK and Stateside from Smith & Nephew... Thank you so much for Luca's special gifts and offering to build his frame onto a saw bone when it's removed...(so he can keep it in a case)  Without one person this would not be possible and Luca is sooooo excited... Luca Williams... You have the ability to touch people's hearts just by being you... Or it could be because you're happy to sit in your pants in the cafe to show off your frame! 🙈  Always show your metal handsome!  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #humpday #showyourmetal
It is possible to do a Pancake Throwback Tuesday right?? I can't believe you were ever that small... Sorry I missed pancake making handsome... Weds surprise is planned 😙  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #pancakeday
When you wish Mondays were Sundays... 👌  Take time to relax, reflect and enjoy each others company... Time is never wasted when it's with the ones you love!  Can we do it every Sunday boys!  #forluca #sons #brothers #brotherlylove #smile #pose
Sunday's 😍😍 Seems like I'm lost for words boys... Love is... Simply you... #forluca #sons #brothers #brotherlylove #sundayfunday
When the crew from Journeys End take 1 min to raise their hand to Luca's bravery... When it's such an epic film Luca was chuffed to add them to his cool wall... A huge thank you to @mrsamclaflin @paulbettany @asabopp Toby Jones, Robert Glenister, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge, Andy Gathergood and Jack Holden... A special thank you to a dear friend who constantly helps us with these amazing images.  #forluca #handsupforluca #raiseyourhand #bravery #amputeelife
Luca casually posing for his portfolio... (X Ray portfolio 😉) He never whines or moans in the slightest... Every 2 weeks a team of specialists check every aspect for infections, bone damage, skin tears, nerve growth, etc... Luca builds himself up for these sessions so much he usually passes out into a deep sleep the minute he leaves... 5hrs later he wakes with a batch of new questions... He knows every detail to the enth degree!  He loves showing people his legs and frame! For this reason he is featured in multiple consultant talks showcasing the effects of Septicaemia and what treatment can achieve... Madrid is next... The home of his favourite football team 👍  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #inspireothers
Saturdays mean SMILES!  Well as long as its parties, rugby, coffee breaks or Xbox 🙈  #forluca #sons #brothers #boysclub
Friday madness... 🙈😴😴🙈 I literally cannot wake you Luca... It's been a tough week... Once again you gave proven that nothing phases you... Another 10 degrees of movement 💪  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #fridayfeeling #friyay
Throwback Thursday is full of smiles... And poses... And epic onesie's... And Clip on Legs... Oh how far you have come Luca...! It has been a roller-coaster ride handsome... Get ready to rock those new clip on legs soon... Time is flying by!  #forluca #son #amputeelife #cliponlegsrock #prosthetics
Bravery is not holding back the tears... It is letting them flow and saying just keep going!  I will never stop looking up to you Luca... You will always be my mentor!  #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery
I would drive all night for this view Luca... And also to work out why you have to go to bed with 2 toilet rolls each evening 🙈😂 Another 9mm of movement handsome... The adjusters feel like they are as tight as they can go... It now seems hard to stretch that 1mm each day... 'Not much longer Dad... It just feels like something is pulling my bones out...' 'It is Luca?' 'I know that Dad... I just mean it feels like someone is pulling my bones out of my leg...' 'Is it OK?' 'Of course... I'm used to it. Night Dad!' 'Night handsome!' #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery
Monday motivation... Luca always had the most simple goals... 'To walk on the beach and feel the sand beneath my feet Dad'  We've done the walking part... Even some running... The feeling of sand... Hmmmmmm... There are some developments in that area and we have plenty of time handsome... #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery #mondaymotivation
Cycling thermals... 2 shirts... 2 jackets... 2 pairs of socks... Neck warmer... Scarf... Goretex boots... What do you mean  its cold...? 🙈  Monday... Pah!  #freezing #cold #mondayblues #monday
Swipe right to see the breathtaking results of Luca's frame... Each day a millimetre per day for 3months... We are halfway handsome!  Sunday 'walks' were enlightened by the best man to man conversation today... 'People do stare at me allot though Dad...' 'People take notice of things that amaze them Luca...' 'I suppose having no legs and a frame is pretty rare...' 'It is handsome... That is why I spend so much time looking at you too...' 'You are just looking after me Dad... Its OK I know people stare because I am different..' We only ever look back to see how far you have come Luca... #forluca #son #amputeelife #bravery
Saturdays... Made for bikes, rugby, open fires and naps... 'And Ninja football Dad!' Pride cuts through all differences... This photo was taken by Luca waving his brother off for training... I can't imagine the strength it takes as he sits by and watches for 6 months due to his frame... #zack #brothers #forluca #sons #weekend #brotherlylove
When Friday nights are so rock and roll that it's sleepover in the lounge... Well Dad passing out in the lounge while you both rest your legs on me and play FIFA 🙈😴 #forluca #sons #brothers #brotherlylove #smile #pose
