FOREWORD by Don Piper (author of 90 Minutes in Heaven)
Two words, "It's Alzheimer's," brutally and relentlessly rewrote the script that James and Lucy had envisioned for life. The changes came slowly at first, then finally, the threat to their dreams could no longer be denied.
Lucy Dishongh tells the story of how the relationship changed from her being James' Princess and him, her Knight, to her new role as his mother and his new role as her "little man."
Filled with beautiful prose, poignant moments, and hard truth, Courageous Caregiving will help you see the beauty in troubled circumstances and face your future with courage, a little humor, and a growing faith.
Lucy Dishongh is a writer, poet, teacher, counselor, and nurse. She grew up in a home filled with love, laughter, books, music, art, and the belief that everyone's life matters. She is a mother to three outstanding sons and Mimi to six amazing grandchildren. She lives in Houston, Texas.
