About the Book
A courageous and heartbreaking story that you won't be able to put down.

A mother's inspirational tale of her 40-day vigil in a pediatric ICU after her son's critical injuries in an auto accident. She offers advice and explains procedures to other parents with the hope that they will feel better prepared to face their child's sojourn in an ICU setting.

The book is broken up into time/procedural periods on the ICU, with information and advice given, followed by excerpts from her journal of that same event with her son.

She is also quick to point out her mistakes, and guides parents what to do and look for when attending meetings with the medical staff or making critical decisions.

This book, while intended for parents, can be an effective tool for ministers, ICU workers, and hospital social workers.
