He does most of his own care.  Minimal help now—it took a long time to get to this point, and probably after the first six months of being at home, he could definitely see a change in where he wanted to start doing more and more, but he does most of his own care now.  If he needs to take a shower, I put him in the shower with the chair.  If he needs assistance with his bowel program, I’ll help him, but I mean that’s something I did every night when he came home, now he takes care of it on his own.  But he puts himself to bed, he gets himself out of bed, he gets himself dressed, you know he does all his own grooming.  So yeah, we’ve come a long way.
