Here are a few pictures of my son before he went to the dance (he didn't take the gun :) ) http://s295.photobucket.com/albums/mm141/Windwalker523/
The pictures were taken at a friends house during the picnic right before my son left (he changed clothes while there). The suit is all black. No girlfriend to take to the dance but he did meet a few friends there and ended up dancing with one of the girls.
My friend was able to move her leg and her shoulder some at my last visit so that is a great motivator and a big step toward recovery.
