Good morning all.. Looking to pick your collective brains. I have been working on a story since the age of 15, picking it up every few months, pounding out some thoughts and putting it away again. It is however one piece that I would like to finish and publish along the way. My main stumbling block is one that requires some medical knowledge above what I currently have. Google search is FANTASTIC for ideas, but I want to be sure my explination is believable to the average reader. Let me cut to the chase... My storyline involves someone who is paralyzed from the waist down after childbirth and ends up in a wheelchair. I don't want to use childbirth as the reason, however. I would like it to be a pre-existing condition that was "hidden" and only manifested upon the onset of labour. Otherwise healthy woman, early 20's when this will happen. Any thoughts?
