Jean and Paul jointly care for 30-year-old Jackie, who is confined to a wheelchair, unable to walk or talk, but whose smiles and hugs are sweet motivation.  Nevertheless, they get weary, working to raise enough money to support the family, and alternating the care for Jackie.  In Victoria they had a chance to relax in style at the Oswego Hotel, eat well, raise a glass at a few pubs, go kayaking (Paul) and garden-prowling (Jean), and have restorative massages (thanks to the wonderful people at the Spa Magnolia near the Empress Hotel).
