I want to say it started immediately.  I mean, from the time he was in the emergency room at the first hospital, and realizing that they’re putting a catheter in him, and he’s not feeling anything, you know, I expected him to flinch.  That’s probably the start of it for me as far as knowing what was coming, and how to handle it.  But, it’s just over all talking to the doctors, talking to the therapists, probably not until we got into Marianjoy, did I have a full understanding of what he was going to be dealing with.  You know, obviously when he was in the hospital, he was in ICU for pretty much the entire month that he was in the hospital, and you don’t grasp it totally.  So until you get into, you know, a rehab, that’s probably when I first started understanding what we were dealing with.
