In regards to the question of complete quads working. Yes it is possible, hubby has a c5-6 injury has either gone to school full time or worked 7-5 6 days a week for the last 20 years. I worked 7:30-4:30 during this time as well so it was a zoo getting both of us out of the house and on the road by 6:30 every day.

As far as aides at work - he takes himself to work and takes his lunch, had never had help during the day with personal stuff. He's a engineer and does all his work on a mainframe and desk top computer.

Even during college he lived in the dorm and only had an aide for 2 hrs a day.

Retirement is really looking good....... only 5 more years
