      Welcome Jen, I'm so happy to hear things are moving in a positive direction for you and your husband. I also wanted to reiterate what others have already mentioned, take care of yourself, it's so important. Prior to my sci I was a foster parent to what are considered high needs teenage girls. It took me years to realize how important self care is, and how I could get things done more efficiently when I wasn't burnt out. Now I'm on the receiving end, and it was heartbreaking for me to see my loved ones exhausted trying to meet my needs when my injury was very new. Take care of you and yours, and in that order. Best wishes....
