Default Dean Loucks Art of design(boat painter), paints another leg for me :)

I had Dean paint another prosthetic socket for me. This one is just awesome. Patients nickname is gator and he says he wants an aligator eating whats left of his leg. So I give Dean the idea and here's what he creates. The patient is brought to tears of joy. Who knew he'd like it so much, but it was finally something not so structured and orthopedic looking. Truly art work. I then attach the knee and foot to what you see. Patient is a 39 year old truck driver, with long hair and all. He looks like Joe Dirt, and this fits him perfect. He's a real nice guy that was dealt a bad hand and is making the most of his life. So hence the extra effort.

Wow, what a great idea. Maybe it helps other people that may be uncomfortable noticing something like that, like an icebreaker.
