I think it’s more the accessibility.  People have no idea, it was a very eye-opener when we went to see my two brothers down there, and living in the house with Christopher, and seeing what was needed.  You know, a big enough entrance, and to be able to turn around in the bathroom, and transfer, and getting up steps.  The house was not handicap accessible.  Thank God we had a nephew that had some muscle that helped pull up.  At the same time, he wasn’t happy that he felt like he was kind of a burden to somebody.  So, I guess it’s the big accessibility to getting around.
