This morning I am taking a break from wearing the i-LIMB. I have been pushing it a little too much and my arm is very tired today. I will put it on later today when I go out to do some errands and maybe even take along the camera to get peoples response to this new adventure.
Several of you have asked how the i-LIMB charges, do I have to change out a 9volt battery, does the battery come out and charge on a charger, is it nuclear – you know questions like that. Well I am sorry to disappoint those who were hoping it had nuclear power but it is run by a lithium ion battery that is charged each night. I simply just plug in the charger to what looks like a headphone jack. Here is a shot of what it looks like.

My wife comes home today so there will not be any more Bionic Chef updates!! LOL thanks for all the comments that have been made about this great journey I have been on. The i-LIMB is truly amazing and it is changing so much about my life. Several of you have asked about my golf game. I will not wear it playing golf. It is not flexible enough for that. The doctor told me that for things such as sports and activities that I am used to doing “single-handedly” I probably will not use it. So for all of you that thought you could get a “hand-up” on me on the golf course – you have another thing coming!!
More to come throughout the day….
I thought I would try my hand (no pun intended – ok yes it was) at basketball. If I get this down I am pretty sure I will be able to rule the world!!
oh i almost forgot – I found me a horse – this is stumpy!!
