Kristian's doctor advised him to stop working as a television editor. To support the family, Rachel went back to teaching high school. "Now I get up early in the morning getting the boys ready, I'm off to work and I get home and it's madness," Rachel says. "I've literally got nothing left for him. There are nights when Kristian's gone to bed, and I just sit up and I cry because it's such an overwhelming situation to be in."
To thank Rachel for always standing by him, Kristian produced a video love letter for her birthday that he posted on YouTube. When Rachel saw the video love letter, she says she was amazed. "The most romantic thing I've ever seen and I cried, I cried and I cried," she says.
