    Red Dwyer’s Killing us Softly is a monumental book of heartfelt and practical advice for getting through and surviving the onslaught of cancer and death of a spouse.
    With the use of real time journal entries and blog posts, the author reaches out to readers in a unique way to guide them through all the emotions, responsibilities, and processes of being the caretaker of a marriage partner.
    Self-care and the care of the children are her primary focus, as she becomes the sole head of household and cup of love for her dying spouse and surviving family of nine children, three of whom are autistic.
    The book is supremely well-balanced in a way that has never been offered to the public before. The journal entries and blog posts draw us into her intimate life as she grieves privately yet exhibits her strength throughout and beyond the dying process. The focus is on helping the reader maneuver through the seemingly herculean feats of love and physical care which are assigned to the surviving spouse once the diagnosis of cancer is definite.
    From discussion on diagnosis and decisions to be made, through treatment and endgame, Red Dwyer holds our hand and shares with us her advice for not only surviving but also claiming our lives as we traverse this difficult and often hidden journey. She discusses the role of spirituality in the lives of the caretaking spouses, and the details of cancer treatment as a partner in the comfort of her loved one.
    Almost all of us are faced with treatment options at end of life, and many of us don’t face them until we are feeble and sick and not entirely in a place to make those decisions. While cancer has specific decisions to be made, Dwyer discusses the choices we all make when faced with extended treatment of a terminal illness or allowing nature to take its course.
    From diagnosis to hospice care, endgame and beyond, this author will be ultimately helpful to millions, who before this point have persevered and survived in silence.

Field Trip

Now, you all know I am taking a break from blogging, which is why I am missing from M3 and the blogosphere in general. I am happy to report a few things…not the least of which is where we are going to go. Are you ready to go on a field trip?


Since Monday afternoon, I have edited the first 17,000 words of the book. No, still not a lot of progress on the title. But that is not the news…since then, I have written 16,000 words on it as of lunchtime today. Quite a bit of progress. (Insert happy dance.)

Let’s roll!

Remember when I had Red here? She was kind enough to host me in a guest post over at her place. So, let’s go over to Red Tash’s to see what I had to say about trolls while we celebrate her new book Troll or Derby. While you are there, be sure you register to win a copy of the book!

Last one there has to buy the house a round!

PS I am talking about you over there….
