Never again will I hear the words "but Jo, I can't wash the dishes... I only have one hand!"
Last week J.R. created his very own prosthetic attachment. It's the first one he's made and I think it's fabulous. And although I'm not a huge fan of sponges (I hate smearing germs around) I'll let him get away with using these if it means he'll wash the dishes. I'll just be obsessivly microwaving the end of the wand for five minutes everyday to kill the germs. It's an odd obsession.

In other prosthetic news, check out this video of Brian's new legs.

Brian and his fiance Mary lived at Fisher House with us at WRAMC. I'm happy to report that they are FINALLY out of D.C. and moving on to a more "normal" life. I can only hope he is making good use of his new feet and that Mary is learning to keep up.

Now as far as last night goes, we all made it home safe and sound from the bar. I even made it up in time for my eight am sociology class. Just thought I'd share a picture that was taken at the end of the evening.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by and wished me a happy birthday! It certainly was enjoyable.

That invention is pretty cool. When you mentioned in another post how JR was out in the garage looking at his tools I thought, "there HAS to be a way around this problem." (Or over, under, through... whatever works)

There should be a clearing house kind web site that takes these inventions and tips and passes them on to others in the same situation. Maybe someone has already designed a solution or made one better.
