When Caregiver Becomes the Patient

June 9, 2019

Those of you who know me well know that the last two years have been a medical nightmare for me.  The good news is there is light at the end of that tunnel.  A surgery in my future.

Since caregiving has become a big part of my life again, although in a reverse roll, the book I wrote in 2014 has reclaimed my attention.  Being a semi-invalid has caused me to relish activities that were once at the bottom of my TO DO list.

I am delighted to show you my new and improved website.  One I can actually be proud of. Take a look.  Click on the link below. I ask you to hold my hand, but don’t rub it . . .

Title Survey

June 16, 2014

I had a title for my caregiver book long before I finished writing it. It was a title I was in love with because it was the center of my relationship with Rich. It was down-to-earth, direct, but with a hint of humor. It came from his words to me at the end of Chapter 10– “Hold My Hand, But Don’t Rub It.”

My editor convinced me that the real “ah, ha” moment of my book happens later in Chapter 17 (Last Call). And that is the title that made it to the cover.

I wonder what readers think. Do you like the current title “More Thank I Could Ever Know” or do you think “Hold My Hand, But Don’t Rub It” better?
