Hey Everyone! So it did take me a little while to write this blog post, and I apologize for that, BUT I have some great news to share with you!! I’ve been to my final Fitting for my prosthetic!!
So, because I love all of my loyal followers so very much, I have some pictures to share with you!
So this will be the inside part of the whole prosthesis, the lines he’s drawing will be a part of a fiberglass socket that will be attached to the rubber piece above
He’s now wrapping fiberglass around just the lower part of my arm
So this is the finished 1st piece of the prosthetic fitted, cut and molded to my arm specifically
This part’s a little hard to explain, but basically, they were trying to match my prosthetic hand’s thumb to my actual hand. If you look closely, you can see that the fake hand is smaller than my hand, they will have a normal sized hand on my actual prosthetic
This is basically the finished product!(with a sassy expression of course)
Finally I got to pick out what skin tone color I wanted, and my mom definitely helped me out with that one!
So that’s basically it for the process itself… and I just found out that it will be finished 10 days after my birthday (which is Mar 21st) so it will be done and mine on Mar 31st!!!!!!! I’m very very very excited about it, and I’ll be sure to post pictures of it for you when I have it!
Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday to my Poppop!!!!! Love you<3
