Those of us who have prosthetics have benefitted from technological advances. I once went to a Hip Hip Hooray fundraiser, where they had the first artificial hips on display. Talk about carrying extra weight. Those things looked more like parts that would fit into a DC-3, rather than into a human body!
After reading this story in the paper - Artificial body parts take big strides, I’ve been giving lots of thought to how far I would be willing to go to restore myself to my natural self – the self before RA had its way with me. Would I be willing to remove my existing hand for an artificial one, like the one Bertoit Meyer is using? How far would you be willing to go?
You still have time to enter my giveaway for a leather wristlet, courtesy of Danier. This one is open to people with a Canadian mailing address. If your name is drawn, will you choose one in this bright colour?
