Day #3

Yesterday was another red letter day in my life.  Another step closer to conquering the use of this amazing device called the i-LIMB.  I was able to grab a cup and fill it with soda at the soda fountain – Way cool!  Here is a snapshot of that.

It has been interesting seeing how my children react to this new stage of my life.  I took my daughter to school yesterday and the kids freaked out that are in her class.  Later in the day I picked her up and went into her classroom.  It was crazy!  The kids gathered around touching my new bionic arm and asking all kinds of questions.  One of the kids asked me if my entire body was bionic!!  I cracked up.  Here is that picture of them.

Averie, my youngest daughter is wanting me to bring it for show and tell!  She actually picked it up yesterday morning and was going to put it in her backpack to take with her.  LOL  I think I probably need to be attached to it before we can do that.  But she got her wish and was able to tell all her friends that her daddy is bionic.

Later that evening we had the privilege of spending some time with some friends up in Rancho Cucamonga.  This was fun getting out and into the public and seeing their responses.  We went into the Apple store and was asked not to film in there.  I personally think that they were frightened by the i-LIMB.  LOL

Here are some clips of the evening enjoy.  

 

This is when we were asked to quit filming.  They fear the bionic man!

The Sermonator!!

And finally – I was able to do this for the first time in my life!  Day #3 was the best!

 

Things I learned in Day #3

My kids are very excited for their daddy.

I can fill my cup up at the soda fountain and carry my food tray in the other hand.

People are still not real sure about it.

My friends are super supportive

I can open a car door – so cool!

It even communicates with satellites – just kidding

Life is a challenge and this is part of it and I am loving it!

    Brother Sargent;
    That is awesome! I am so happy for you. Could you please post some videos of you lifting cars, bending steel bars, and oh yeah, flipping man hole covers like Frisbees ! (Now that would be cool) Steve Austin did it, I am sure with a little practice you could have it down in no time. You may have to get the upgraded model, not sure.
    Seriously, this is great! We are soooo happy for you.

    Love you always.
    Bro & Sis Terry and Chandi Brady
