I have mentioned before about how ‘us’ bloggers connect. The writer of ‘fixing jason’ is a very special individual who blogs about her husband’s spinal cord tumor. She is a caretaker, much like my husband is for me — watching the one you love deal with a horrible injury. I enjoyed this post since we seldom ‘hear’ the viewpoint from a caretaker — it’s mostly about the patient, the injury and the side effects of the spinal cord injury. Once I read this post, I thought it was fitting to re-post this message, but I wanted to add a special thank you to ALL the caretakers who provide love and companionship to those with spinal cord injuries. It is not an easy job. I know in my case, my husband never misses a doctor’s appointment, drives me everywhere, handles more than his share of everything and not once has he EVER complained. I am confident the same is for Jason’s wife. Even though Jason and I both have spinal cord injuries, live and breathe pain, and at times have probably questioned why this happened to us — I also, believe we are also both very blessed. Somewhere along the way we found two very special people to share our lives with who help us deal with this terrible injury. Spinal cord injury or not — we are blessed. Some people only dream of being loved like this. We get to live it every day.
