Follow this link to watch me ski!

Skiing with the Gaylord Hospital adaptive sports team at Bromley Mountain, February 6th. (In the video, that's my instructor coming in behind me.) Can I even describe how difficult it is to ski on one leg? Try doing squats for two hours without stopping. Now do that on one leg. Nonetheless, it feels great to be out on the mountain. And both the Gaylord team and the adaptive sports program staff at Bromley are incredibly caring. I've been lucky to ski three times this winter--and I'm going again this Saturday!

My brother forwarded this article to me: it captures well the awkward and painful experience of learning to walk again.
