The 34-year-old from Stoneham is the last victim of last month's attack still at Massachusetts General Hospital and among a few of the most seriously injured who haven't been released from other hospitals or moved to rehab facilities.
Fucarile tells The Associated Press that his family, including his 5-year-old son and his fiancee, has kept him going.
He was at the marathon cheering on a friend when the second bomb went off. Two other friends also lost a leg.
Fucarile credits his survival to a firefighter who immediately came to his aid and a police officer who drove him to the hospital when no ambulances were available.
