About the Book

Open-heart surgery was a frightening experience that brought many challenges to our family and marriage. Many medical professionals guided the recovery. The multiple strokes were much more challenging when hearing so often, “We will just have to wait and see.” That statement became almost profane as each day presented new problems to deal with. Strict diet, exercise, and therapy required becoming nurse, dietician, counselor, and warden, as well as wife. The attitude of the victim and the caregiver makes all the difference. Keeping positive was a necessity, though it was often difficult. Remembering Philippians 4:13 became my daily encouragement: “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.”
