I shared the picture of Jordan’s broken helper to her prosthetist and we’re going to have to send it to him. He’s happy to see it got broken, because it means Jordan is using it a lot. And she really is. It’s really cool to see her finding more and more ways to use it. But what stinks is by shipping it off, she’s going to get used to a new pattern of not putting it on every morning. We’ll get back into the swing of it as soon as possible!
