Here’s what Nick was trying to show you in the video:
And for our Spanish speaking FH family:
This was requested by a mom from the Fibular Hemimelia and Limb Lengthening Awareness Group. The FH warrior label did not appeal to me at first but I was totally happy to make it for her and the other families. In fact it made me feel really happy to do it. I love our group so much but word wise “warrior” wasn’t my thing. I am more about being at peace with, living with, working with fibular hemimelia but when I showed it to Nick he liked it a lot. He said “Warriors brave the storm of pain and sadness that comes with fibular hemimelia and then find their is a Silver Lining.” (Thomas the Tank Engine reference) I asked what the silver lining is and he said “That you have equal length legs and scars to prove that you braved the storm of fibular hemimelia. Like a warrior returning from war.”
So there you have it. I am off to do a web chat. Nick is doing homework and we’ll post again soon.
