Somehow you recover and rise to the occasion, but you’re not sure how that happened.

This reading is from Chapter One, “The Night The Earth Stood Still.” It tells of my experience seeing my mom for the first time after her stroke, hooked up to machines in an ICU unit in a University of Chicago hospital. Mom hadn’t seen a doctor in over 30 years, and I had never seen her so frightened and helpless. Watch the video to hear what happened next.
