General Discussion / update on getting my new legs
« on: April 09, 2009, 09:25:28 PM »
well today was the day i was supposed to get my test legs to test drive, quess what we never made it to his office, and we are without a car or transportation, was about 5 miles from his office and was stopped in traffic and got rear ended by a F150 three quarter ton pickup towing a trailer with a backhow on it, spent all afternoon in the emergency room in TYLER, TEXAS ETMC HOSPITAL, NO major damage tous, but am going to be good an sore tommarrow, because i tensed up  when i saw it cominig, as of right now i dont even know how bad the car is messed up, the medics got us out of the car and on the way to the hospital before i could even  talk to the police officer investigating the accident, and my wife is going to be the same way, he hit us so hard that it moved our car four feet into the car infront of me, and locked us togeather, i know that cause i tried to back up so that we could get the cars out of the middle of the road, so until we get some transportation of some kind my new legs are but on the back burner so to speak, at least i have found out that my insurance is not going to take a hit, by having to pay for the car i was pushed into, like some states that i know of and one is CALIF, cause we had that happen to use when we lived out there. We have already run up no heck of a hospital bill, four differant CAT-SCAN, two on each of us, they did my whole back and head on me, the wife thinks that they did the same on her.s plus the ambulance trip to the hospital.  so we are going to have to watch our selfs for a few days to make sure nothing is wrong and if any thing show up. Well here i am venting agian, so i hope that you all can put up with me on this one just needed to get off my chest so to speak,

General Discussion / new foot on the market
« on: November 12, 2008, 06:50:24 PM »
this is to all of you girls and ladies out there, how would you like a foot that has 2.5 inches of heel adjustment built into it.

Am in the process of getting a new pair of legs made and my CPO has recommending this foot. PREFECT STRIDE II X3. here is the web site for it.

www.bioquestpros.com   It is kind of on the pricy side but if it does every thing that they tell me and i just got of the phone with bioquest, i called them and wanted to know if i could possibly wear my western boots with this foot and was told that they have quite a few people doing that right now. the price tag is 2100.95 per foot.

for my socket i am looking toward the LIMB LOGIC, made by OHIO WILLOW WOOD,  which can be found in this site.

www.owwco.com

havent read everything about it as of yet but so far like what i have read as far as control of my leg,

Health and Fitness / rash
« on: November 10, 2008, 10:40:57 AM »
how many of you out there wear the ICEROSS SILICONE LINERS, and have a red itchy rash around the top of your liner, i have come across a product that will relieve the itching, it is called HORSEMANS DREAM, and yes it is a product for using on horses, a lot of people us it down here to relieve their arthritis  pain, i use it to relieve the pain in my stumps when i over do it and it also calms my phantom pains down.

You can get at most tack shops, and i now that is say for animal use only and is not FDA approved, it works for me and it may not work for you, just thought that i would pass it on.

It was in lasts nights paper, the BIG THREE AUTO MAKERS, want the govnment to bali them out now. When it going to stop and these people take acount for their own actions, the big three knew a long time ago thatt they needed to start making smaller and better MPG cars, but no they just kept pushing the big gas quzzlers like the H-2'S and the pick pickups.

If you want to get a great deal on a F150 or one like it come down here, at on time they had a sale going and it was 50% off.

« on: September 22, 2008, 08:28:38 AM »
hi to all, have been up since 2:00 AM with a zinger attack in my right stump. they are hitting it right in the inside angle bone area of my missing foot, have tried pain meds no help have my legs and liners on and the liners help some but they are still coming at me and i can almost set my watch with them, about every 10 to  15 seconds apart and man do they hurt, i would rather get hit with 110 volt electricity than have these do there thing to me.
