Summary
A deeply moving memoir about a young couple whose lives were changed in the blink of an eye, and the love that helped them rewrite their future. Five months pregnant, on a flight to their "babymoon," Allison Pataki turned to her husband when he asked if his eye looked strange and watched him lose consciousness. After an emergency landing, she learned that Dave <U+0015> a healthy thirty-year-old athlete and surgical resident <U+0015> had suffered a rare and life-threatening stroke. As a way to make sense of their new reality, Allison wrote daily letters to Dave <U+0015> to preserve their past, protect their present, and fight for their future
Summary
The best-selling author of The Accidental Empress describes how, while on a vacation during her pregnancy, her healthy 35-year-old surgical resident husband suffered a rare and life-threatening stroke that placed everything they had worked for in jeopardy, a struggle she navigated by writing daily letters to her husband that helped her make sense of challenges and fall in love with him all over again.
