The Journey Begins

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.
