There was definitely financial question and stuff like that, and my wife takes care of most of the finances, so she was on top of all that. Fortunately, I was set up with disability through my work so that kicked in. We were fortunate to have family come in and help us, and as in we lived with family for the first little bit after I got discharged from the hospital because we lived on a second-floor apartment, so there was no going back to that. And of course, I wasn’t working so for the four months I was in rehab. I wasn’t working, and then I took a month off and I slowly eased back in. But initially, it’s really just kind of relearning how to do, or learning a new job as it is making money. You know you don’t really start making money and being self-sufficient until you learn all that. Fortunately for us, we had help from family where we needed it and then friends and family were able to donate so that helped a lot.
