Don't tell Matthew he doesn't have thumbs. He sure thinks he does!
The hand surgeons we visited when we were considering pollicization all told us that 50 percent of hand functionality is in the thumbs. Wow! Scary statistic when you have a son born without thumbs.
What we have come to know is that Matthew has about 90 percent functionality in his hands right now. Amazing! A testament to the power of the 'thumbdex'!
