"You Can Call Me Ripley"

This is Sarah May Scott. She got a grave spinal cord injury in 2005. And if everything goes well, she may start walking again:

I am not a cyborg, but I am getting closer and closer to being a terminator. My back is already full of titanium, and I've got a radio-controlled device in my abdomen that feeds medication into my spinal canal. If the trials go well, I hope to get my chance at being the female Hardiman with the ReWalk system. You can start calling me Ripley when that happens.

It is when I read these things that I become fully aware of both my limitations and the tiny dimensions of any troubles I think I may have. Go read Sarah's interview at BBG. [BBG and Sarah's Blog]
