Just Listen for the Thud: Humorous and Intimate Stories from Caregivers is a collection of lighthearted and uplifting narratives about family members who learned to embrace humor as they cared for loved ones suffering life-threatening illnesses. The how-to of caregiving, gently woven into the stories, merely serves as the backdrop for these compelling testimonies to the depth of love, the strength of commitment, the force of warm human connection—and the groundbreaking discovery that took them all by surprise: as family caregivers, they have the ability to heal the spirit through laughter. Hopeful and humorous, but never irreverent, Just Listen for the Thud invites you to see these relationships through the eyes of the caregivers, and seeks to shed light on the question they hear so often: "How do you do it?" The answer, as they all will attest, is that in the grip of heartbreaking sadness, they simply learned to laugh.
