I have a fear that because he’s considered an incomplete quad—he’s walking—and they’ve said that in the future, there’s a chance that he could relapse and go back to his chair, you know be put back in the wheelchair. I just have a fear that maybe his mental state, his psychological state could falter. That’s just my fear that maybe his health, you know as he gets older because they told us his health could get worse as a sixty-year-old man with quadriplegia. Your health is going to be worse than your average 60-year-old man. Even though he is only 35 now, he’s only got one lung that functions. You know, he walks, but 30 years down the line, you know that could be a totally different story. He could be back in his wheelchair. It just scares me.
