It was probably my in-laws.   My parents were gone and I was injured, so I needed to be close to Magee, the hospital, and they had an apartment in center city.  And so I just spent my time at night in their apartment.  I had to sleep in a chair because I couldn’t lay down then—I had a bunch of broken ribs and some other things.  It was their support.  I know that they paced me with spending time with Vicky, so I wasn’t there every minute of every day.  It gave me time for myself, because I needed to some healing as well.
