Progress!

Matt has been working to learn to use his arm prosthesis and will be getting a new hand attachment which is a hook type devise. He is scheduled to get his first leg prostheses in about a month! Hopefully he will be up on his new feet very soon. In the meantime, Matt is going to get to go sailing in Florida. He will be learning to sail on a boat which has been adapted for people with a single arm. He will be traveling with a group of wounded soldiers from the CFI. Smooth sailing, soldiers!

Way to go, Matt!!! I know you can do it all!. Your Mom took me sailing once at Lake Jacomo and I believe I was not such a good sailor but it was fun. I continue to be awed by your progress and your courage.
