The relationships have changed only in the sense that sometimes our family forgets that he can’t walk, because he’s so active, and helpful with other things.  He can’t do the mowing of the lawn, but he’ll help them set their TVs up, help them program their cell phones.  So, sometimes my dad will say, “Bring me that tool.”  And, he’ll say, “Pop-Pop, I can’t bring you the tool, I can’t come upstairs.”  And, he’ll say, “Oh yeah, I forgot.”  So, the relationships have only changed in that they forget that he can’t walk.
