    All positions are risky! I have represented former NFL players from both sides of the ball, and all positions, including kickers!

    66-71 Balt. Colts, N.Y. Giants, Boston Patriots.
    Today my journal as caretaker for my husband: up at 4 a.m. to catheterize my husband, adjust siding on the bed so he doesn’t fall out because he doesn’t realize that his legs won’t hold him up, check provisions of Depends, etc, set out his clothes, leave lunch and instructions for caretaker, 7:15 a.m. leave for work, 4 p.m return from work. Caretaker leaves. Check on husband who is taking a nap. Prepare dinner and eat upstairs in bedroom to prevent falls on the steps. Cath husband again, give night time meds, take patient to bathroom, hard to get him up after (brain can’t tell legs to get up), watch TV til 9 p.m. Go to bed and pray we sleep at least 4 hours before another cathing. Neurologist says CTE with side order of Parkinsonism. Tomorrow another day. God bless us, everyone.

    Jean you, your husband and many other players that played in that time frame are suffering. Know you are not alone and many of us will be praying for you and your husband. “God Bless Jean and her husband as they battle the results of a career our husbands loved and await the help we all so deserve. Hold them in the palm of your hand and hear the prayers of his brothers in the game. Amen”
