Aches & Pains
Here is a great gift of wisdom and humour for anyone coping with actual aches and pains. Based on the author's own experience as a hip replacement patient, she provides funny insider advice about coping with the ordeals of surgery, a hospital stay, and at-home convalescence. Highlights include: ten little jobs you can give to anyone who innocently asks 'how can I help?'; dignified ways to cope with all the indignities of baring your body to strangers; great gifts to suggest when someone asks 'what can I bring you?'; tips on dealing with visitors...and hospital food...and medical professionals. Far more entertaining than a potted plant! Read wonderfully by Kate Binchy.
