This moving true story is an example of the power of self-belief, support, persistence and courage; gives insight into the interior of a public hospital and the emotions of two people experiencing an extended stay there; provides advocacy for health care improvement across all sectors; and is a love story.Roy is suddenly hospitalised with diffuse septic rheumatoid arthritis and his wife Christine leaves home to be with him for what becomes a terrifying eight months experiencing intravenous drips, operations, transfusions, further infection invasions, intensive care, bullying by hospital staff and other insensitive behaviour. Amusing and heart-warming incidents also occur. A battle ensues about Roy's discharge, but despite reluctance of medical experts he goes home weighing under fifty kilos, needing a mechanical lifter, a wheelchair and daily help from Homecare Service.Determined to achieve self-mobility, Roy and Christine embark on a tough ten month regime of daily exercise, guided by various therapists. The question of whether this goal will be possible grips the reader and, although the outcome might seem disappointing, it is an amazing achievement which offers encouragement to those who suddenly suffer unexpected disabilities, and their carers.
