Rick Kahle, wonderful husband and father of a beautiful five-year-old daughter was struck down in his third Lupus attack. He was not expected to live and his future looked very bleak, yet no one gave up on him. The sicker he became, the harder everyone on his medical team tried to fix him. Every medical procedure and treatment that might make any sense at all was tried on him as he lay in the ICU of the hospital. Six and a half weeks of lying motionless, comatose in the hospital Rick suddenly awoke but he was in a different world than the rest of his family. Yes, he was twenty years behind everyone else. 110 days later and after countless medical treatments and nonstop praying, Rick walked out of the hospital amid much celebration. Jump in and see what it's like to have your husband awake from a coma and not know you. Jump in and join the Kahles on this journey of a thousand miles.

Kris Kellar Kahle writes a heartfelt account of her husband's recovery of Lupus that is inspiring to anyone wishing to read about a real-life miracle. Ms. Kahle avoids writing in traditional formal prose, and instead writes in a blog-style narrative which reads like a journal or diary containing tidbits of info and emotional feelings that give it a strong personal touch. Written with humor and pathos at the same time, the reader feels as if they are in the hospital room with her husband, rooting him on.

It was very informative and inspiring. The author effectively transports the reader into her life as a Lupus wife - no doubt a tough position to be in. She provided meticulous details of the grueling hospital stay and all the complications that her husband had to endure with this ugly disease. She gave the readers a snapshot of the ups and downs of rehab, while giving credit to Rick for his will to live and to walk again. And most importantly, she acknowledged the source of her strength, which will inspire others to seek out during difficult stages in their lives, for with God, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).
