Bestselling writer Jane Heller thought she’d found her dream
man—until he turned out to be a “frequent flier,” the term
doctors and nurses use to refer to patients who land in the
E.R. more often than the average person goes to Starbucks.
Here, Jane shares her experiences of looking after her
chronically ill partner with Nora Ephron–like wit, and offers
practical guidance for handling it all without drowning. With
advice on staying healthy while caring for a loved one and
learning to communicate with medical staff, plus wisdom
from other caregivers and experts, this is a personal and
invaluable tool kit that also manages to prompt laughter and
inspire. For the more than 65 million caregivers in the US
alone, this book couldn’t be more timely or important.
Jane Heller is the author of 13 novels. Jane lives in Santa Barbara,
California, with her husband.
