The Guardian features fellow amputees injured in Iraq in today's paper.

It's a heart-wrenching article but there's one uplifting paragraph I can totally relate to:

His wife Debbie is "an unpolished rock". He confessed: "So many times I've hit her with attacks like, 'What are you doing with me, I'm limbless?' When I first woke up, I was like, 'What do you want to be with me for, I'm not the bloke you married?' And she said, 'You may not be physically, but you are the same person on the inside.'

Billy Bob's appearance is testament to Aileen's similarly resolute spirit.

Yes, I too can only say how much the support and love that I have had from my rock, Joe - has meant the difference to each day. I am blessed and I know it!

Here's to all us amps!
Congratulations on the arrival of Billy - how wonderful!

with love
