When Susan Coleman's husband was diagnosed with cancer, his prognosis was grim. Due in large part to her love and attention, Bob lived years past the most optimistic expectations. Time and time again, Susan and her watchful eye nipped potential problems in the bud, expanding both his life and his quality of life. Once, because of her attendance, Bob was spared hours of unnecessary pain when his epidural line was disconnected. Her supervision even saved him from an incorrect operation. With "For The Love of Bob: Sharing Lessons Learned through Crisis and Care Giving", Susan has chronicled her experiences in an invaluable resource for anyone going through a difficult medical situation. "For The Love of Bob" is full of helpful information and suggestions so that you can be as prepared as possible. This personal reflection will give you the knowledge and confidence to: · Ask the right questions · Trust your instincts · Think outside the box To be an effective advocate for yourself or your loved one, you must be involved with the medical process. If your gut feeling isn't agreeing with a process, question it. If you notice an error or an oversight, say something, and keep saying it until someone listens. Keep yourself informed. Remember: medical professionals are no different from the rest of us-they have simply made a different career choice. While talented and trained, they have the capacity to make mistakes, and as the advocate for your loved one, you could make a drastic difference in your loved one's experience just like Susan was able to do for Bob. Quality medical care involves active participation from everyone, so take this opportunity to educate yourself for the wellness and protection of the person you love.
