I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire!

Phantom Paw Pain

A few days ago we were basking in 70 degree temperatures. My mind was already planning for the garden and the planting of spring flowers. Today everybody is home because of a snowstorm.  Welcome to winter in Virginia!

Kitty (name still to be determined) and I accurately predicted this snowfall. When the sun began to set I could tell that she was uncomfortable. Considering that she is less than two weeks post amputation, she is doing remarkably well. Yesterday was the first time I sensed any discomfort, affirming my worry that she was also going to experience phantom pain.

While Kitty and I settled into warm blankets to sooth our phantom leg/ paw issues, the boys hoped for one more snow day. Their wish was granted, and they will be able to enjoy a long weekend. I would bet that this is the last one for the year, but with this crazy winter you can't be sure.
