See Me Hear Me Know Me

Over the next few blogs I will be sharing excerpts from my new book See Me Hear Me Know Me from The Heart of the Caregiver. This book was written to give a voice to caregivers who are often known as the invisible victims. In this book I admonish the reader to not just see the functions of the caregiver but to see the heart with which they performs their daily tasks.

The excerpt below deals with when my husband was preparing for his stem cell transplant:

Book Excerpt

The patient and the caregiver are required to meet with the transplant nurse and transplant physician, who discusses the results of the vital organ testing and explains the details of the transplant. At this appointment, we received the report that his heart, lungs, and kidneys were all in excellent condition and the latest bone marrow biopsy was clean. Scott was an outstanding candidate for the stem cell transplant. All parties appeared to be ready and the bone marrow transplant was scheduled. We had come so far and were feeling hopeful that this would soon be in our distant memory. But we encountered one unexpected challenge. A challenge we never thought about; we did not see this one coming. 

Book release is scheduled for April exact date will be listed on:
