To Uncle Larry, Grandmother May, and Great-Grandmother Ada, who lost their lives through misadventure, while in the hospital.
Thanks to all friends and family that directly participated in this production: Debbie, Liz, Jeff, and of course, my illustrious illustrator, Rosie. This project would never have been completed without their encouragement, editing, and hard work. Special thanks to Kathy for her formatting and editing in the perilous world of Word. Finally, I deeply appreciate the support and companionship of my fellow workers: nurses, doctors, therapists, and social workers. This guide was a result of analyzing our interactions over the years. I just wish I had analyzed sooner.
