I found out the other day that a friend of mine wrote this book, Your Wife Has Cancer...Now What? If you're interested in buying it, you can at the link: HERE. I haven't had the chance to read it yet, but I can garner so much of what this project is just from the title.
It's a cry for help.
It's a search for understanding.
It's a cathartic exercise.
It's a way to show love and respect.
It's a prayer.
I see this as a project to do something! It's like watching your wife go through labor. You want to help, as much as you can--as a husband and father--you'd do anything to help, but in the end, the really hard stuff must be done by someone else.
I'm sure that when I read the book, I'll learn a lot more than what I believe the book to be. I'm sure that there's very useful information that can help. I'm also sure that I never want to actually put that good information to use.
I have enormous respect for anyone who has seen a literary project through to its conclusion. Well done, Carson! And I am so glad things are well with you and your family.
