I did, I went back three weeks after his accident. I didn’t know what bills were going to look like and I didn’t know what I needed to do. So, I figured I had to go back and kind of just make sure that we still had a steady income until he had some long-term disability that was going to kick in. But I needed to make sure that we were taken care of, so I went back to work three weeks after his accident. I think I helped him feel okay about it, I don’t think—I didn’t give him a lot of opportunity to focus on that might be hard for me because I wanted him to focus on rehab and just getting better. So, it was hard for me, but I try not to give him opportunity to feel sorry for me about it because he has more important things to worry about at the time.
