Despite being in constant motion and falling into bed late every night exhausted, I am having a wonderful time in Tucson. I relish spending time with my amputee friends, laughing and sharing stories that only those living with limb loss can understand. There is something empowering about being around individuals who are living the same reality.
I have been overwhelmed with hugs and kind words from readers of this blog. I can't help but smile whenever somebody approaches and asks if I am the AmputeeMommy. I have met so many new friends during this conference, and I am looking forward to keeping in touch with all of them.
