I remember coming in one day—he had only been in rehab for a short period of time, maybe even just a week or two—and going into the physical therapy room with him.  He transferred onto a bed, and he actually sat up, literally sat up in, in like you know, a L-shaped position for the first time.  And, I remember him getting a little teary-eyed, he’d probably say, “No,” but I remember him getting a little teary-eyed, and thinking, you know, thinking how cool that felt for him.  Now he had sat on the edge of beds and stuff like that before, I don’t know why that was so emotional for him, or why it was so strong, but I just remember thinking that, you know by the way he reacted, that I thought he was going to be able to handle this and get through it.
