Ready to weather the storm

We were in a good position in our lives to weather a crisis. We had been together for four years. We had a lot of friends and support. I had just graduated and hadn't found a job yet, so I had plenty of time. And Judi was in a work situation where she had lots of sick time built up, she had lots of support. Our lives were in a very stable place when this happened. We thought several times, what if this had happened a year later after we'd moved to Michigan and had no new friends and had no real support basis. It would have been much harder.
