Last week I received the loveliest package.
A book (that is the way to my heart!… oh, and chocolate… and wine.)
Susan Toth has written a beautifully honest memoir about her last 18-months as a caregiver for her husband James, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
Her brief essays express the day-to-day joys of caring, overwhelming sensations and everything in between! With humour and honesty, Susan discusses the everyday challenges (cleaning teeth! filling the dreaded pillboxes! schedules! and adventures in medical supplies!), the tender moments (James proclaiming she is his hero!), and those that make you laugh out loud (oh the messes!)
Susan’s novel is a conversation with other caregivers; expressing thoughts, feelings and a sense that you are not alone.
… AND I AM GIVING AWAY A COPY OF SUSAN’S BOOK!
