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 . . .
