Sanity saver

I can’t wait to read this.!!!! I have read and listened to every written work by and spoken interview of Barbara Karnes I could get my hands on. Stumbling upon her wisdom in the murky midst of my husband’s slow but steady death from a progressive neurodegenerative disease was like detecting a calm voice of reason break through a cacophony of unintelligible shouting. Sanity and reason and compassion and acceptance. Barbara Karnes helped me to give my husband the best death possible. What more can we ask?
