Last month on March 12, 2012 was my one year anniversary of my major motorcycle crash. My other posts give a good description to what happened and what broke/amputated. So a year later I'm doing pretty good. I just received my 2nd prothesis last month. The day of the final fitting, I walked out of the office without my cane! I was soo excited to walk un-aided again. But it's put alot of pressure on my other "good" bad leg. I have a rod/screws in the Tib. I try and keep my leg on for 8hrs a day. I use a wheelchair to zip around the house at night and early morning. I have reflected back at the 14 surgeries in the last year to put me back together. I've come a long way baby. I went back to the two hospitals and two rehab centers and thanked everyone that had a part in my recovery. Unfortunately I'm getting a divorce because of the accident. It changed my wife and I. But now I get to surround myself with positive people. Anyway, if I can get through the recovery process of an amputation, you can :)

Everyone in my circle of friends and family know I'm a shorts guy. Cargo, Plaid, etc. But I did own one pair of blue jeans that I wore religiously on every motorcycle ride I went on. Until the day I had my motorcycle accident. It seems like the EMT's like to cut things up :) Anyway, 8 months later, I re-bought the same pair from the same store. Closure baby!
