    Thank you to Caregivers

    I just wanted to say thank you to all the caregivers out there !

    For the past month I've been battling a pressure sore on my left butt check. My girlfriend, Heather, has helped me with it along the way. From changing the dressings to cleaning it and everything in between - there isn't much she hasn't helped me with dealing with it.

    You all make those of us who need assistance lives so much easier and fulfilling and you deserve credit where credit is due.

    Here is an example of what I'm talking about. At first, I had a deep tissue injury stage 1 pressure sore with a large knot surrounding the area:

    Then with the help of my girlfriend and all of her support after about a month of bed rest, changing dressings, cleanings, and everything else it turned out to look like it currently does:

    Pretty amazing stuff in my opinion !

    Thank you all for what you do on a daily basis.

    Great job, Heather! And yes, caregivers rock!
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
