I just returned from getting a new glove for the i-limb, the last one was completely wore out. This past week was a very eventful one and I wanted to share some of the happenings. A great friend of mine Andrew Seagraves, who lost his right leg to an accident a little over 10 years ago, was on vacation with his family in our area. They stopped by and we had a little fun for the camera – check it out.
We had a blast telling stories of my arm and his leg. We are thinking of going on the road – LOL!
Just wanted you all to enjoy a good laugh. Keep checking back – great things are on their way.
A brand new year is already here and we are nearly through the first month of the year. I cannot believe it is YEAR 2010! Where has the time gone? In just a few weeks I would have had the i-LIMB for close to one year and it has truly been an amazing year.
When I first received the i-LIMB I went on a 100 days with the i-LIMB journey and what a journey it was. I have not posted much since then, only occasionally because I didnt want to bore people with my life. After a year into this adventure with the i-LIMB, I have recently had numerous people wonder why I wasn’t posting anything to this blog and how I was doing with the i-LIMB. It made me think that maybe I need to be putting more stuff up here and continue the adventure with the i-LIMB.
This past week I was at a conference in Louisiana and I didn’t bring the i-LIMB because of some of the crazy situations I have had going through airports with my new appendage (I will tell you more about that in a different post). Many people, more than I could count, came to me and asked, “Where is the i-LIMB?” I had to tell them that I didn’t bring it and here is why.. yada yada yada. But it did get me thinking that there is a lot of people out there still interested in what is going on with this technology and how it was being adapted into my life.
One of my favorite magazines on the planet is FAST COMPANY and in their latest issue – ISSUE 142 February 2010 – they have a great article on prosthesis and where they are currently and where they are going. Great read for all those that are interested.
So to answer every ones question – I am still here and I am still enjoying the i-LIMB and what it has brought into my life and I will do my best to keep the journey alive. For more in 2010

Life is all about the people you meet and the friends you make. Last weekend we ministered in Katy Texas where I met Caleb. A congenital amputee with an arm very similar to mine. I had been wearing my i-LIMB during the day but had taken it off when I met Caleb. This kid is awesome and I am proud to know him. I am so thrilled to be able to meet kids that have the same birth situation as I do. Check out our video…
I just received an email from Touch Bionics about a newsletter they just sent out that has an article I wrote for it. They are an incredible company and it is a neat newsletter. Check it out below….

I am currently in Texas where I am speaking at a Youth Camp with about 250 kids. We are having a blast and the kids are totally digging the i-LIMB. I will be posting more pictures in the days ahead.
The i-LIMB is continuing to be a great benefit in my life. I am amazed each week at what this piece of technology has brought into my life. Thanks again Touch Bionics. You guys are a blessing.
I thought I would add a picture or two of some fun I have been having with the i-LIMB recently.. This is taken with my friend Rob McKee…
I am still enjoying living life with the i-LIMB and I am still enjoying coming in contact with people who get to experience it for the first time. Below is a video of my good friend Jason West from San Jose, CA. He has been keeping up with the “journey” since the beginning of my adventures but this was the first time he was able to see it in person. Check it out.
One thing that being on this adventure has taught me – you never know who you come in contact with that will have an impact on your life. One of those people is my friend, Haylee, a 7 year old from Nebraska. During these adventures I posted one of her videos she did of a shout out to me. We have become fast friends and Haylee is doing some amazing things over at Little Hand Big Heart. I wanted to post a couple of videos that are on Haylee’s site so you can meet her and see the journey that she is on. This little girl has an amazing future and I am happy to have come in contact with her and her family.
