    Hang in there sweetie. My wife was injured in may 06, c 5 & 6 incomplete and I was with her 24/7 until last Feb. Thats when I finally let her get home health care. Her therapist told me that I might be hindering her rehab because I would try to do everything for her. Things will get better. Remember your little one needs you to be sane. Also talk with his Dr about this, meds might work. Hang in there.

      yeah I think that you are exactly right. But he causes stress about our bills and his wife, Micheal's step-mom. I don't think there are any financial problems, unless they come from her stress.....its just a hard situation. I think his son has always come first over second wives and hopefully this will continue.
      I know my injury was killer on my dad. My mom stayed beside me in the hospital the entire time and through therapy etc. She would probably really like to talk to you. now of course she is here for her son in law also.
      You recovered your SCI and he did not. I can see where he might feel like maybe he did not try as hard to recover or any number of things. The ego can be very fragile. You have said you know he will recover. What if he does not? That is a lot of pressure to be under.
      i have seen people just give up instead of facing the reality of paralysis from SCI.
      it is hard sometimes to see past our own all consuming pain.
      much less see or understand anothers
      i think your man is a lot luckier than he knows


      just some thoughts you might consider

      good luck

            Thanks everyone.

            and Reed YD.....Yes I know for a fact that he will recover, i cannot tell you when or exactly how but he will. His hands, his legs they will all work maybe not as strong as before but he will walk and hold me again and do everything like before. I know this because I have been there. Unless the cord is cut and is 'complete' which he is not, he will do it.

            God put me with him for a reason. My left hand is a daily reminder of my injury and it will never work correctly again. I believe this is God's sign to me not to forget, kind of like the rainbow......anyway, he will do it. When he does we are going to help as many people as possible to do the same.....to everyone, PLEASE NEVER GIVE UP!!!!

              Welcome to cure care. Think at this time things have to look up. Take some time for your self you'll burn out. Enjoy your small child there only little for a while.

              I know with my father the home health aids were useles and the ones that were good he pushed away he only wants my mother as his caregiver. She works 40 hours a week and it take a lot out of her. To make it all work easier she finally set down rules for him in the form of a schedule. Then she figured out some chours he could do. Ie dust with the swiffer.

              Hang in there and vent away. don't hold it in.

                  99ss00ws6 - Praise God my sister!! Stay strong because I too feel the same way about my brother's fiance. In my heart I know that God will allow her to walk again - don't know when, but I know in my heart it will happen. Amen - I feel the same way about 't' I told her that when she starts walking again she has to testify at every church that has her on their prayer list and let folks know that God is in the healing business. Just reading your comments give me chills. God Bless and I'll pray for you and WE WON'T GIVE UP. All things are possible through God.

                    Have you ever heard of Project Walk? I'm sure you have since you are a member of the forum. I lift them up. He did so well while we were out there, I cannot wait to get back this summer. I just hope we can stay for the amount of time that he needs. How old is your future sister in law? I imagine it is hard for your brother. Tell him he is not alone. I would love to start a support group to go talk with newly injured SCI's to tell them not to give up and what they need to do i.e. get into therapy and not to listen to doctors who give rediculous percentages etc. I keep telling myself one day at a time.

                    Your right all things are possible through God....I am walking proof.
