I think it’s come full circle actually.  You know, in the early days, I think we were disconnected, and she needed to let her hair down, or blow off some steam, and she did that.  But I think now, we actually, we’re in a better place.  We’re—this is what I’d say three years out—where we actually talk like partners about stuff, we actually make decisions regarding our kids’ future.  I think it has come full circle—it’s taken some time—but it’s come full circle.  I hear stories all the time of how guys have injuries, or people have injuries like me, and all of a sudden, they’re in divorce court.  That happens quite often.  Thankfully, I don’t have that wife, that partner, she was in it for the long haul, little did she know what to expect.  But, it’s come full circle, it doesn’t feel much different—I use that often—it doesn’t feel that much different than it did before the accident.  It maybe even better because I’m home more, so we have to communicate more.  So, I think it’s really good right now.
