The good news, and it’s kind of perverse, is that teenagers, they live in a world of one.  I don’t mean that at all negatively, but that really worked to everyone’s advantage.  Because, we were able to give just enough information for them to understand that we were concerned.  I think as a couple, my husband and I also made a conscious decision to say, “Alright, we have one child on the brink, but we have two that are alive, we need to pay attention to them as well.”  So that was very much in our therapists, to say, “We have to pay attention to these guys because we don’t want them to feel like they have suffered a terrible injury as well.”
