    • Soppy or not Greg each point is very valid. Every day I get my husband to say (practice speech) something, usually inspirational and your number two is the quote I will give him tomorrow but your number five is the one I will inspire him with.  Thank you for posting them.
    • I am very touched by your replies Sophie and Skippy. It is indeed very difficult watching Jeff going through all this and though I am trying my very best to help him through it all it still feels as though it is not enough. One thing that I do know is that it will make us both all the stronger for it. xx
    • My doctor said based on statistics, the chance of it happening again is the same as the chance it happens at all.  He said it would be like being hit by lightening twice.  So I try to believe that.
    • Makes perfect sense Skippy.  Reading through different threads and posts I definitely see a difference in what people's doctors say their recovery time is so I thought I'd ask about other things as well.  I guess we've all been through trauma so the idea of it happening again is so scary.  I know chances are slim but it's still there just like the chance to get it in the first place.  Thanks for your response.  I appreciate it.
    • Riorita   Completely agree with Sophie - someone once asked me if I'd rather the be the person going through it or the person watching.  I said the person going through it as it has to be so much harder for the person watching.  This was proved for me when my hubby nearly died two years ago in a motorcycle accident and I realised how hard it was for him watching me go through this.   You're amazing - as are all the carers on here xx
