Comments: Seriously

Touching, Ted. Your wife is obviously in good hands, and I'm glad that the two of you are making a go of it... and that you've got good parking privileges. :-)

Seriously, though, as Thanksgiving approaches, the two of you are a success story -- a couple that didn't throw in the towel when things started to get difficult.

Hugs to your entire family.

I'm incredibly impressed with the both of you. Thank you for sharing.

So often when a wife is seriously ill, the husband can't handle it (divorce rates of cancer patients back me up on that horrible generalization) says a lot about you that you can find the humor in it, Ted.

I always said "Hire the handicapped, they're fun to watch!"

Usually followed up with "Ow! Dammit, put the cane down..."

We should count our blessing everyday. I can't imagine what it's like to face a doctor's gaze. I mean, I, m'self, haven't had so much as a common cold in ten years. I just can't fathom dealing with a serious physical challenge. Will of steel required? All the best to you and yours, blog bro'!

This is an amazing story -- and I appreciate you for sharing it with us. Have you ever thought of sending it into a magazine? I used to work for Easter Seals, and we were always looking for "poster children" -- this is a story that needs to be shared beyond the blogosphere, because it's so hopeful and touching. (I am a magazine editor; it wouldn't fit my demographic, but I know there is probably the "right" publication out there that would kill to tell your story!)
