This book was written with the intent to help soothe a person who is sitting in a hospital's waiting room after having just been informed that a loved-one has gone through a traumatic injury to their head (and the announcement was given without many available details). This reading can also be the kind of book that is relatively simple and quick to take in so that a person who has dealt with their own serious distress can absorb such hopeful information easily, as I know that I wish such writings had been available when I was recovering from my own Traumatic Brain Injury. Spending the recovery phase at my parents' house in the tiny town that we lived in at the time, I was around many friends, family, neighbors and former educators. One of them knew that between my mother and myself, we had kept an essential and accurate journal of the daily events following the TBI. My husband and other individuals, suggested that I compose and set down on paper wording that would provide other people with a literary image of mine that would reflect the view that I had finally achieved; that is, that the term 'head injury' does not necessarily refer to needing to be on life support nor ceasing to exist. But dealing, emotionally, with the loss of a close friend while recovering in a hospital is not something that can easily be explained. It took me years to come to psychological terms with as well as acceptance.
