... up paralyzed from the waist-down... they said there was a 3 to 5 year life-expectancy for those with such a severe condition. Does anyone know anything about this? earlygrandpa was 46 when he passed July 08, 2011. He was my world. I started this membership for him. I miss him very much. He wouldn't let me read that life-expectancy part AT ALL. I just turned the page to some other thing. I know, a lot... of things, effected the length and quality of his life. Does anyone remember, or know of this 3-5 year thing, though? I thank you for any effort to help.
