Yes and no. I live in the same house I lived in when I got hurt. I’ve gotten a housemate, who lives upstairs in my master suite, my beautiful master suite. But she’s there for when I need certain things, and to help run the household and she does a great job with that. And in case of emergency, if there was a fire in the house I couldn’t get out of bed. But for the day-to-day things, I operate somewhat independently. But every morning I have caregivers that come and help me for three hours or so, sometimes longer than that, to help me get showered, and dressed and take care of my other needs. And so, I’m as independent as you can expect for a C3 quad 10 years out.
