My husband recently sustained a spinal cord compression injury resulting in paraplegia. This after nine years of chronic illness including cancer, ostheoporis, myasthenia gravis, chemo, radiation, staph infection, surgeries, etc. etc. I am and have been his sole caregiver all of these years. Only married 3 years when this all began. I have an 8 year old daughter who has never know a healthy father. He was diagnosed when I was pregnant. Just venting!
