    45th Anniversary

    My lovely lady and I are celebrating our 45th anniversary and almost simultaneously, 32 years since my c 6/7 complete injury.

    NL is a rock and has been my sole caregiver in all of these intervening 32 years.

    Not sure where the road will take us and we undoubtedly will need to make adjustments along the way.

    But, damn, with this woman by my side, it has been one hell of a ride!!!

    All the best,
    GJ

    husband's injury.

      Congrats! It is really something now days to have a marriage that lasts that long. My grandparents had 56 years, and my parents 58.

        It sure is! My folks made it to 55 before Mom died. We're at 28 and I just passed my 22nd disasterversary the 25th. Congrats and I'd say you have a real gem there not a rock.

            June 8 will be our 46th, and I was injured 31 years ago. My wife endured a lot in those years, but she's still here. Deeper love for her everyday.

                Congratulations! It great to have a rock to lean on. I would not be around today if I did not have one.

                            Great congrats. I guess it really helps out having somebody who is a good person by your side. I just hit 33 years post SCI May 9th. It was 1981 I ran my Honda CBX off the road.

                              I'm late to the party, but my congratulations are just as sincere. Having a special person around for over 40 years is definitely a blessing.
                              I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.
