I was seriously injured in a hanglider accident on May 9th. I was airlifted to a trauma center and was hospitalized for almost two weeks. I am now out of the hospital and will be recovering at home for the next couple of months. I’m told it will be a long road (2-3 years to full recovery) as I have shattered both my arms with nerve damage. They are pinned together with dozens of titanium plates and screws. It will takes 3-12 months to learn if the left arm will be usable. I can move my right hand a little bit, though, and can get a little done on the computer with Dragon Dictate voice software.
