I think the biggest support for me was my mom and my dad.  Because, at the time, Andre and I lived together in a condo, and I just moved out of my condo because it was a second floor condo, and I said, “We’re obviously not coming back here.”  I moved in with my parents temporarily, and every night, coming home from the hospital, my mom and dad were there to support me, and to listen to me cry, or listen to me unload on them.  Because you don’t realize, as the caregiver or family member that’s there every day, you want to be strong for the person in the hospital.  You don’t want them to understand or see you upset.  So, having someone to go home and unload that on was my escape.  To just sit and talk with my dad, and talk to my mom, and tell them what happened that day.
