Well I have done it this time!

Recently my family and I slipped away for a few days to go see may parents, brothers and their families up in Sacramento. I was looking forward to catching up with them and spending some time just chilling. On Wednesday night my mom took all the girls, 10 of them to Disney on Ice, while us guys decided to do something a little more manly.

We decided to go to a place called Sky High – it is an indoor trampoline place that is pretty cool. I should of known I was in trouble when I had to sign a form waiving my right to sue if I got injured. I felt like a kid in a candy store. There were trampolines connected everywhere. It was fun, for awhile!

They had a section where you could play dodgeball and I was on FIRE!! We played that for nearly an hour then decided to go back to the area where there were trampolines on the wall and all over the floor. I thought I would give it one more try and took off jumping from one trampoline to the next chasing after my 13 year old nephew. Needless to say I landed on the third trampoline and my ankle decided to go a different direction than I planned on going. I messed it up pretty bad. In fact the doctor said it would of been better if I broke it instead of spraining it the way I did.

With all of that in mind I have discovered something that is pretty cool. For the first time in my life I am actually able to use crutches the way they are designed to be used. And it is all thanks to the i-LIMB. I picked up my crutches the other day and just started laughing because of how easy it is to use with the i-LIMB on.

Finding new and useful ways to use my prosthesis makes each day an adventure. I haven’t posted anything in a while on this blog but thought this would be something others would like to hear about. Here is a picture of me, the bum foot, crutches and the i-LIMB. Pretty cool the way this thing has helped in my life.

I continue to enjoy the opportunities this new appendage has brought into my life and I look forward to more ahead on the “journey.”

By the way, make sure you head over to Thank You Mr. Jenkins to order your copy of my new children’s book. Your family is going to love it.

  1. Hey Bro… I’m sure sorry to hear you had a bad landing but, knowing you, I’d bet you had a blast go’n up! :D

    Happy to see that the iLimb is helping with the crutches. …but I know that your iLimb is just the tip of the iceburg of the bionic powers that you wield.

    Keep posting… I can’t get enough of your writing bro-man.

  2. Oh Man.. We are sorry to hear you got hurt but that ilimb rocks…. Haylee had to look close to even tell which hand was your ilimb.

    What a bummer! But it’s awesome to see how the iLimb is helpful. I also just wanted to say thank you for continuing to write here at your blog. It’s awesome and I can’t wait for Jordan to get a little bigger so I can introduce you to her online.

    Take care, feel better soon and I can’t wait to check out your book.
