I just read your post and feel immensely moved. Now you certainly have a partner to be proud of there and you don't need me telling you that. It can't have been a barrel load of laughs for you having to go through all that, having to be nursed and tended to so intensively. I'd like to ask you how you managed to get through that? I just cant begin to imagine...you must both of you be made out of really tough stuff. Hugs, Karenanne.
