Beschreibung

And for the next Five years, Ed Bliss's arms were always around his beloved Lois. In this rare book of remembrance, love, and loneliness, Ed Bliss chronicles Lois's six-year journey into darkness. Spare, gentle, restrained, Bliss's account of Lois's struggle with Alzheimer's is an unforgettable account of loss--whether of the ability to speak and write or even to eat--and helplessness in the face of a disease that knows no cure. Ed Bliss captures not just the terrible course of the disease, but the small moments that marked each stage of their last years together, from the last time Lois legibly wrote her name or went shopping to an unexpected joy because her Red Sox had won a game. Ed and Lois, in love for 60 years, only deepened their affections as they faced each new challenge. Lois Bliss died in 2001, at home, surrounded by family. Part memoir, part diary, this book conveys what all caregivers face in dealing with Alzheimer's. But it is more than a tale of pain. "In the end, grief turned to gratitude," Ed Bliss writes. "What was cruel was no match for love."

Pressestimmen

"A powerful and intensely personal story of loss, learning to treasure the little moments, and taking things day by day, For Love of Lois is a heart-touching and unforgettable personal tale which is especially recommended reading for anyone having to deal with the onset of Alzheimer within their own circle of family and friends."
