My greatest fear, honestly, was not being able to have a normal life.  Being a female and being one of eight, I’m in a big family, a large family, and I always wanted children.  And, I think my greatest fear was that I wasn’t going to be able to have children.  I was willing to cope with that because I love my husband—we weren’t husband and wife actually when he first got injured.  And no matter what, I wanted to be with him, and I said, “I have to be okay with this.”  I think that was my nervousness with the injury itself.  But, once I learned that there were so many new things out there, my eyes opened up wide.  Sticking by such an amazing man was everything I wanted it to be at the time.
