    Great stuff!

    I'm speaking as a paraplegic who married my bride at the rehab chapel.... I wish them both the best.

        Yes, this is ECUrach85!

        She is local to me, there has been lots of coverage of her accident and subsequent recovery/wedding. I am very happy for them both!

              This young woman is a great inspiration to me. I really admire her attitude toward and relationship with her friend who pushed her in the pool. A wonderful person, wishing she and her husband a great marriage and a wonderful future. She has much to contribute.

                Rachelle's pressure sore got healed just in time for the wedding. But lately, she said in a CC post she was having trouble with a new suprapubic catheter.

                  Rant: She's a quad, and the article says that she was paralyzed from the waist down. Is that the only phrase that the media knows how to write? Aargh!! I'm a para, and I'm paralyzed from the nipples down.

                    My exact thoughts Donno. (well, not about your nipples)

                      I noticed that too. I think to a huge chunk of the world a quad simply can't move anything, so they always go with the "paralyzed from the waist down" moniker however inaccurate. While some quads can't move upper limbs, the majority can of course.

                        I sincerely wish the best for the two of them. I think it's wonderful- especially as this is occurring after her accident.
