Caregiver Stories - Lori Emery

"My caregiver is also my wife, so I am quite fond of her! I was diagnosed with DM about 5 years ago. My wife stood by me, cared for me, cleaned up after me, and even helped bathe me at times. She never once asks for any recognition. She deserves more than I could ever give her. She stands by my side and does more than any 30-year-old wife should ever have to do! I am fortunate to have a wife that takes the 'sickness and in health' portion of her vows to the extreme and loves me and cares for me more than any husband deserves."
