Uncommon Beauty

I happened to pick up Uncommon Beauty at the library this week. Two things: the title has nothing to do with the content, and also, I am not in the middle of a medical crisis with a family member.

But if I were, this book would be a great resource. It's written for parents of medically-fragile new babies, but the information on navigating a hospital, accessing care, managing insurance paperwork, and advocating for your family member is really good stuff for anyone who has to interact with the medical system in a serious way. 

That could be any one of us, at any time, so these things are good to know. Find it here on Amazon if you're interested.

Thank you for mentioning this, Anna. I plan to look for this; we are presently dealing with the opposite end of the age spectrum, but an objective advisor will be so welcome, I'm sure. Thank you.
