I think that what I now know, from the moment that Ryan was hurt to what I have learned in these two years since, is that there is life after spinal cord injury. That when I was told that “Ryan is paralyzed,” I thought that meant our lives were over. And I learned that it would just have to be lived differently, it wasn’t over, it was far from over. And so, it would’ve been very comforting to know then that there was still a life after spinal cord injury, and that we could still have a marriage, and a family and just everything that we dreamed of having before. It was just going to look different.
