A searing portrayal of a mother's anguish over the sudden hemorrhagic stroke of her son--devoted father of two young girls--rendering him a quadriplegic in the prime of his life. An intimate glimpse of a world shattered by stroke, in which each poem not only illuminates but reimagines life with hope and acceptance.
Any parent who has watched a beloved child struggle with a medical disaster, or suffering intractable drug dependency will easily recognize and relate to the sadness, grief, guilt, the struggle to understand, and to help when one is often helpless. Through a succinct poetic exploration, readers will be heartened by the promise of survival, the faith in science, the mystery of the human body and, most of all, the courage that a gravely disabled child can bestow upon a parent.
