Annieg, how are you? I know that here in Western Mass, spring only seems to tease us! Must be nice to live near the sunny beaches of the cape or in warm, toasty Ireland like Steve! I'm jealous! We drove up to North Hadley this morning to have a waffle and pancake breakfast at the sugar shack on RT47.(peak of maple sugar season here). It would have been a one and a half hour wait. We thought the parking area was overflowing due to all the tourists and locals out for Sunday breakfast and to tour the process of taking the fresh sap from maple trees and boiling it down to the maple syrup we all love!! Imagine our surprise when we learned that all those people had come from all over New England because of an internet rumor that someone had actually seen a real, live crocus somewhere in the Pioneer Valley! ;)  Anyway, spring is just around the corner in this part of the world. Now, if I can only find out which corner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The site has really slowed down here. Hopefully because there are less new amputees. Anyway, for those who still check in, I hope you and your family and friends enjoy each others' company if you are able to get together this weekend!

That's a good way to deal with our situations, Steve. It can always be worse!. This is crass, but when I saw the title of your post it made me think of myself...just when I think I have it hard, my wife asks..."Where did it go?"

Steve, I'm going to rant here for bit. You have been under government controlled health care for some time now, correct? Can you call your limb fitter and get an appointment for an adjustment tomorrow?. I can with no charge because he has his own business and he's a good guy who stands by his work! We are about to be inflicted with the "affordable health care act" which will be  the downfall of the middle class in our country. Under private insurance, I have only spent perhaps $400 dollars in the past eight years. Under Obama Care the price of health insurance is projected to climb by $7,450 per year for an average family of four people! I promise you that this will be the end of the middle class in this country. We will pay fines in the thousands for non compliance! Then, they can take our homes and rob our bank accounts. I'm beginning to see why they call us the Great Satan. Sadly, we are.

Sorry. Steve, I have two 6mm liners still in the box, but they are pin and lock. I use the 9mm liners now. If you can possibly use my liners, let me know. Your only cost would be shipping.  Danny

Steve, Guzz,  I share your pain for the victims of this event. I live close to Boston. Let's remember, however, that these events are always politicized and more and more freedoms are taken away each time one of these events occur. Anyone who is paying attention can see that freedom of speech is being taken away as is the right to bear arms. Look at any government which has disarmed the populace and see what has followed. I won't comment further as this history is well documented for anyone who cares to research it. This whole event smells as yet another false flag operation as was 9/11, the London 7/7 event, the train bombings in Spain just to name a few of the more recent events. They always seem to be running a "drill" at the same time the actual event occurs! What are the odds?

Wishing you the best, Dave
I wouldn't worry about taking advice from your leg guy because he isn't a "Doctor". Whenever I've needed a new leg or liners and had to get a prescription from my doctor, my prosthetist writes out what I need. I then give the information to my physician, he copies it down, and then submits it to the insurance company for approval. The "doctor" doesn't know crap about amputees.

Priceless, Steve!
This one is a bit mean, but funny nonetheless... Thanksgiving four or five years ago. My sister-in-law was dating a guy named John. His son was about seven years old and quite rowdy. I sat on my kitchen chair and pretended that I couldn't pull my boot off. I pushed the lock button on my socket and called little John over to pull off my boot. The poor kid's eyes got big as saucers as he yanked on my boot and pulled my whole foot off as he did a backward somersault! He's probably still being treated for post traumatic stress syndrome.  :o

Good one, Chuck!
So I've been tardy and you've started the thread. Here's my first....
Seven or so years ago I fell off a ladder at work. The fall was only six feet, but the landing was bad. After a week in the hospital we decided on amputation due to nerve damage and lack of blood flow. While in the hospital my sons flew in to visit. My son, Jay, was due to be married in two months in Oregon. We live in Massachusetts...a long flight for my post op condition. My other son, Lorin had flown in to visit from Kentucky with our three year old grand daughter, Alura. She saw me in the hospital while I still had my leg. The next time we met up was six or eight weeks later for Jay's wedding in Oregon. We met Lorin and Alura when their flight arrived. The first words out of her mouth upon seeing us were, "Poppy, where's your foot?". I had to think quick, so I said, "I left it home." " Why did you do that?" I said, "I forgot it." She gave me a quick look and scolded me, "Well go get it!".  It still makes me laugh whenever I think about it.

Thanks Dave. Thank goodness I haven't had to deal with phantom pain. My surgeon told me I wouldn't and after seven years, I assume I won't. We can discuss why in another post. Funny stories are next, though.  ;)

You folks are tough. I guess we all are! I had an accident almost seven years ago coming down from a roof. I still do that type of work and have had several mishaps since. I'll start a new post in the next day or two about some of my comical mishaps since becoming an amputee. I'm sure we've all had many! Sometimes it's good just to have a laugh or two.
