Hi Beccy,

I'm also new here. My son is 25 and was in a jet ski accident last May. He lost his RBK. It has been very hard for all of us, and I am sure that we do not totally know what all he is going through emotionally. He seems to handle it well, but as a mother would only know, I see anger and pain in his eyes. I hurt so badly for him, and do not know how to help him. He doesnt want me doing anything for him, because he says it makes him feel like an invalide. Maybe you can give me some ideas.....

Dear Vicki,

My name is also Vicki, and my daughter Niki is brk, she was in a car accident 11months. ago. Believe me i know how your feeling, I feel so sorry for you, i feel sorry for myself. But that wont help our kids. I try to make Niki laugh at most things , and tell her she should be able to overcome anything in her life because she has survived this , She has a great positive attitude, But i know that sparkle in her eye has gone. It breaks my heart. Now we just work on getting her the best leg ever, Niki loves to Jet Ski, Water Ski, and just do about anything , So it has been hard for her to ajust , She wants a leg thats water proof, She tried to water ski at xmas, it was hard for her , so we will design a new ski for her, My thougths are with you.

please keep intouch.

Dear Vicki and Matt,

You can Private Message, or email us on the bottom of each post you will see the symbols just click on them. If we are on line at the same time we can message through Private Message (PM) .Like i did today. My email is malgraham@bigpond.com and Niki Lea's is nikilea@bigpond.com. Niki is into water sports as her grandfather manufactures water skis and wake boards. ( Fred Williams Waters Ski Aust. ) Niki is now working at one of the shops that sell all Water sports gear. She was working in Hospitalilty before the accident but she finds it a bit hard to do the 16hr shifts she was once doing. Her life style has changed but not her personality , she is very bubbly beautiful young girl. Hope to hear from you soon .

Vicki Williams. :D

You may have heard from my mother already, but i thought i would drop a line and say hi... :P

Its great to hear that someone else out there feels the same way about being a 20yr old amputee... :D

We will have to organise to have a chat over this site some time!!! :lol:

Hope to hear soon...

Beccy and Niki Lea,

It is so good to see young people with such love for life and great attitudes. Matt has had a great attitude also with his amputation. Maybe you girls could email him sometime. Hes a great guy, smart, and cute too!!! mdmoseley@96xp.com

Hello All,

It is so nice to hear all of the support people can give to each other being so far away and not having to see what people look like to receive guidance through these difficult times. I am an amputee since 1995 and it has taken me this long to find a support network. Although I do not participate often, (my 4 month old son keeps me pretty busy!), just reading through this forum is uplifting enough for me. Big hugs of encouragement to everyone. :rolleyes:
