The hardest part of the first days in the hospital for me were actually worrying how he was going to handle that, in all honesty.  When I look back at that, he, I was so afraid that when the doctors told him—if they told him before he went into surgery that he’d never walk again—that he wouldn’t have made it through that surgery.  Okay, that was probably the absolute worst feeling.  And, I probably would have to say actually sleeping at all, but, in all honesty, just because it felt like I just couldn’t.  Every time I laid down, I couldn’t stop thinking about him, the kids, worrying about where they were going to be, what was going to happen.  But, I can’t even say that because at that time it was focusing on him.
