Was this in the plan by Stephanie Nimmo was read by myself in one session. I found once started I could not put it down, even though tears were streaming down my face for most of the time. A truly heart wrenching story of life with four children all with their own complications and a husband who although was a brilliant supportive father, became ill and had to fight his own demons.
Stephanie managed to stay strong throughout the illness of her youngest, dealing with endless hospital visits and medication, whilst also being there for her sons both diagnosed with autism, and trying to keep life normal for her daughter who was growing up fast.
I applaud Stephanie for her strength her down to earth approach to life and her support for Andy the love of her life who suffered terminal cancer. Stephanie has written this book in such a way that it seems positive even amongst all the tragedy happening around her. I admire how Stephanie has managed to write everything down in such an easy to read format, even the medical terminology can be understood. Where the energy has come from to write her blog, and this book plus continue her running I do not understand! This book makes me realise how lucky I have been and still am to have healthy children and grandchildren. Their problems are nothing compared to what has been described in this book. I wish Stephanie luck for the future, she certainly deserves it!
