Life has drastically changed for me in the last few days. I am the proud recipient of the i-limb, the ferrari if you will, of prosthetics (those are my doctors words not mine). The journey in getting to this place has been nothing short of miraculous. I am 39 and will be 40 in just a few months and I have never had anything excite and challenge me at the same time as much as this has. I was born missing my left arm from just below the elbow down and have pretty much been able to accomplish what I have wanted to in my life. This journey is a whole new ball game. From the emotions of taking this step to the challenges of using the i-limb, this is going to be quite a ride.
I thought that I would use this blog to chronicle my journey. Many of you have responded to this major event in our lives through several of the social networking sites that I am on and through email. Thanks so much for your support, your humor and your excitement that you share with us as we begin a totally new walk.
I also wanted this site to be a place where others who may be looking into this great technology, can find some information and inspiration. So each day will be chronicled as best as I can with what I am facing now living life 2 handed (sort of).
Enjoy and feel free to leave comments, suggestions, questions or funny stories.
