Waiting For Mama ~ a touching memoir of a loving caregiver dealing with a very long good-bye to a failing mother. And in the good-bye is wrapped the struggle with the health care system, doctors who really need some social skills contrasted with fantastic, caring people and dullards, kind-hearted folks who help and idiots who do little but cause more and more painful problems.

Engage with the heartfelt story of struggle and strength, of anger and frustration, of hope and triumph and ultimately of loss and reflection.

And through it all, Waiting for Mama...ever waiting.

About the Author

Sarah Chappelle is a pen name. The person hiding behind the pen name is a frequently published fiction author and occasional non-fiction writer who could never have gotten started without the loving support of a wonderful and gifted mother. There were so many sensitive incidents in this telling it seemed best to remain anonymous.
The damage done to a writing career while all this was going on and said author was also holding down a 'day' job is incalculable.

Nonetheless, in the aftermath Sarah remains a serious writer, creating new books and living with a loving husband of twenty years, three rescue dogs and the surviving rescued parakeet, Dana who continues to thrive year after year.

There are moments when she still can't believe it's over.
