When 44-year-old Ann Pietrangelo is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, all previous assumptions about health, work, and her budding romance are up for grabs.
How do you plan for life's second half with a body you've never met before? One precarious step at a time. From the impersonal diagnosis by email to a wedding presided over by a funeral director, this is no tragic tale of woe. Like relapsing/remitting MS itself, the book alternates between the serious ("When I turn toward him, there's a big hole where his right cheek should be.") and the silly ("The bocce balls don't get out much.").
This poignant and often humorous story of acceptance and change trumpets a basic truth - that good health and life are fleeting, but love and humor can trump all. That every second matters soon becomes a point driven home by yet another life-altering diagnosis.
