I married Jerry over Thanksgiving weekend in our senior year (November 28, 1986). We're still married. He joined the Army and we had three kids while he was active. He spent time in the Persian Gulf War (field artillery). On April 13, 1995, Jerry suffered a massive stroke. He is paralyzed on his right side and has speech and communication disorders. It took the Veteran's Admin two years to declare him service-connected and in that time we lost everything we had and had to move here- to Wisconsin. In the more than 20 years we've been married, well over half of them have been since he became disabled. Jerry builds things from wood. I set up an album for his work on Photobucket. http://s203.photobucket.com/albums/aa316/jerry_chevrolet/My%20work/
I keep a blog of some of the crazy stuff Jerry says- http://thedisabledguy.blogspot.com/
I do tarot card, palm and psychic readings for a local new age shop and for parties or individuals. Anyone who has ever said "psychics are in it for the money" has obviously never tried to make a living doing this! Its fun, and I enjoy it, but it definitely does NOT pay the bills.
My oldest- Kat. She graduated June 9, 2007 in the top 25% of her class. My middle kid, Jason, is a second degree black belt in taekwondo. He's AKA and Kukkiwon certified and at the age of 12 became an assistant instructor. He also does Brazilian jiu jitsu and MMA fighting (partial sponsorship through FTH Gear) . My youngest, Christine. She plays violin in orchestra and wants to be a teacher.
And if any of you remember my brother, John- we both graduated in 1987. He's an over-the-road truck driver. Been married since 1990, no kids. He was injured a few years ago in an explosion in the aluminum factory where he worked. He had 3rd degree burns on 65% of his body. Many of the larger, upper body area was repaired by skin grafts. (which is why he became an OTR trucker). I don't see him much (not that it matters either way- he's basically cut himself apart from the family at the persistence of his wife). If you want to contact him, you can contact me and I will pass on the information to him.
