I am excited to announce that my latest book is now published and available.
The title is “Mending a Heart: A Journey Through Open-Heart Surgery.”
In 2005 I had come close to dying and ended up having emergency open-heart surgery. The experience was so powerful, on so many levels, that I felt compelled to write it down and share it in this memoir.
Slowly and silently, my strength, stamina, and energy were being diminished by a condition called aortic stenosis, due to a defect in my aortic valve.
I had been minimizing and dismissing my symptoms of profound weakness, shortness of breath, and even passing out, while my condition rapidly deteriorated.
The journey was baffling, overwhelming, and terrifying – and through this gripping and powerful story, the reader is taken into my private world, experiencing the journey along with me, including fears, insights and triumphs, while I slowly healed on many levels.
To this day, I continue to wake up surprised and so very grateful to still be alive and walking on this earth. The story is powerful, dramatic, and riveting, and this book is inspirational and a true celebration of life.
Gripping and heart-felt, the story is empowering and offers many insights for those who face and deal with medical crises, and is a poignant reminder of what is truly important in our lives.
For ordering information – please see the book at Amazon here.
If you get a copy of the book, please leave a (hopefully good) review on Amazon – thank you so much!
I wish all of you good health, joy, and peace – and I encourage all of you to find wonder and happiness all around you each day, and joy and peace inside you as much as you can and whenever you can.
