Miracles happen every day–and this is one of them. The Syrup Maze is an inspiring account of the minutes, the hours, and the days that followed the moment when the author was confronted with the fact that her son was severely injured in a car accident. She found comfort in writing, sharing updates about Michael with family and friends through a personalized website. It is through these posts that she is able to share the journey through her son’s inspirational recovery from a traumatic brain injury. Life can change in an instant, but with change comes choice: choice in how we think, choice in how we pray, choice in how we talk, choice in how we act. And at a time when it was all she could do to put one foot in front of the other, she discovered that, next to God, family was their strongest force. As “Team Michael” they leaned on each other, cried together and yes, even found reasons to laugh together. ‘The Syrup Maze: An Inspirational Journey Through Recovery from a Traumatic Brain injury,’ originally titled, ‘The Syrup Maze: A Mother’s Nightmare and the Strength of a Family United,’ is revised to include updates about (and written by) the author’s son, as well as his passenger/friend, who also sustained a traumatic brain injury. They are both remarkable examples of amazing recoveries. Debbie Simpson, author of ‘Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise: Helping Others Understand Gluten Free,’ also highlights the need for increased education in hospitals and medical facilities in regards to special diets. As someone with celiac disease, requiring a strict gluten free diet, Debbie found the task of feeding herself safely while living at the hospital with her son to be a much less daunting task than overseeing Michael’s gluten free diet. Having to step in more than once when non-gluten free food was offered to her son was inexcusable. Patients who require a gluten free diet—or any special diet—deserve to have their needs met and respected, and they deserve to be fed balanced, nutritious meals while in the care of medical professionals. But, as she discovered, this is not always the case.
