This book may change your life and the way you view that special someone you call "Soul Mate."

As written and described by Sandy's husband David, they share a unique relationship where even through the darkest of days, they were often carried through by their sense of humour.

Prepare to be taken on an emotional roller coaster. Through true grit and a desire to live again, Sandy never gives up. Family relationships,laughter, tears and deep sorrow are all laid bare for the reader. Unlike being in a coma, people who suddenly find themselves in this horrendous situation are left with all their sensory perception intact yet are unable to vocalize or move their limbs. Fortunately Sandy could communicate by blinking her eyes and her hearing remained intact. Unable to swallow or for a while even breath on her own and despite not being able to so much as scratch an itch or rub out a cramp,there remained hope, forgiveness and love.

Proof that miracles do still happen this is a story of the value of unselfish love in action. If Sandy can make it in this journey we call life...we can all make it. There will be no "what if's." Today is indeed your present so don't save the pretty paper!

An inspiring read
June 12th, 2013
‘Blink’ begins by introducing Sandra, a beautiful young woman in the prime of life, whose routine visit to a chiropractor forever changed her life. The chiropractor’s routine but controversial neck-twisting technique left Sandra with a massive stroke. As a result, she became “locked-in”, a nightmarish condition in which her mind remained alert, but her body was unresponsive, save for her ability to blink to communicate. Yet slowly and surely, with grit, prayers and determination, and her husband David’s constant support and advocacy, she began an almost miraculous recovery that is ongoing to this day. Although the book has elements of tragedy, it is mostly a love story. Where other relationships would be severely challenged by such an event, David and Sandra’s loyalty and devotion to one another has grown and deepened. The book is also very personal and quite humourous, as the authors relate many funny incidents that they shared together. I really enjoyed the book, and would recommend it as an inspirational story. Whether you are a caregiver to a family member, a patient yourself, or you just enjoy an inspiring story of the power of love, devotion and commitment in a relationship, you will find this book a great read. And you may come away with a greater appreciation for the small things which we take for granted in our own lives.
