I have no life, says wounding victim
On a scale from one to ten, said Canadian Kenneth Elliott, his previous life was a ten.
But after he was shot and paralysed by a gun-wielding home invader a year ago, his new life might not even rate a “two”.
He is confined to a wheelchair with no use of his lower body; has a catheter inserted to remove his urine; his bowels have to be stimulated so he can have a movement and a nurse has to come and help him bathe.
Moreover, said Elliott, he has gone from riding his motor bikes and cutting his lawn to not being able to have sex with his wife or even wash dishes. (HLE)
