Classified Ad: To Get to the Place Before
To Get to the Place of Before by Nancy R.T. Benz.

"I've looked at Scott's brain images," the ER doctor said. "There are several small areas of stroke in many parts of his brain." Our son, an eighth-grade honor student, had awakened that February morning unable to walk or lift his arm.

As Scott relearned to walk and talk, neurologists from two Minnesota hospitals struggled to find the cause for his recurrent strokes, and to prevent "the big one" - the stroke that would take away what he might never get back. Scott believed he would return to his life - school, youth group, running cross-country. But could our family return to where we had been? Could we get back to the place of before?

To Get to the Place of Before is available at Amazon or contact mnbenz@q.com.
