My family was helpful to a point, and became unhelpful after a while. That’s a whole other therapy session (laughter). I can’t think about that right now. We really didn’t rely on anyone. We tried to, I hate to say we tried to get through it ourselves, but we didn’t think of a lot of resources to lean on.
From the hospital, my entire family and I got amazing psychological support from the Jimmy Fund and its psychology department. The psychologist did a family study on us when we were first admitted, and pretty much knew what our strengths and weaknesses were and really stuck to honoring them. The medical team was in sync with us.
