Survived the Day

Well, our depositions are done and over and I must say it's a relief to have that behind me. But what a stressful day. I was grilled for nearly five hours and during the last hour, I broke down, several times, crying like a baby and went through nearly a whole box of tissue. Our attorney told me, afterward, that I did an excellent job and he couldn't be happier.

Bob's deposition lasted all about 10 minutes. It took longer to set up the video recorder than it did to question him. Then there was a very awkward moment when he was asked to raise his right hand to swear to tell the truth, and, of course, his right arm/hand are completely paralyzed, so that was impossible for him to do. So everyone was waiting for Bob to raise his right hand, and (I could tell) Bob was thinking huh? and I finally spoke up and said "he can't", and they finally asked him raise the left one. Then, though he really tried, he pretty much couldn't answer any of the questions, or answered them incorrectly.

All I can say is I'm glad it's over. And maybe life can get back to "normal" (whatever that is!) now.

Sending you and Bob lots of hugs and prayers. Trust in your attorney and his comments. Your strength comes through once again in dealing with 5hrs of of "interrogation".

Hugs and prayers, Dan

Glad you got through it. If Bob could have he would gone through much the same. But since Bob couldn't you got the double whammy. About breaking down, no worries honey. If you didn't I would have wondered about you. Given that you did break down, it shows just how much impact this had have on your life. That's not a bad thing.
