When she was injured, the relationship had a complete 180.  And, all of a sudden, I was the person who she turned to all the time.  I stayed with her through her rehab, and was there to put her to bed, to get her up in the morning and just to be her complete support in the hospital.  And, eventually, that got old for her, and she needed to branch out on her own.  So, I was happy to see that, although I did feel rejection.  You know, sometimes it’s nice to be needed.  And, as time as has gone on, our relationship is very good.  I think that we’re good friends.  I think that we can argue on an equal plane, but we can also make up and be mother and daughter again.
