The Blink of an Eye: A Memoir of Dying--And Learning How to Live Again

(Övrigt)
Beskrivning:

Acclaimed by Bill Bryson as "spellbinding and harrowing," the story of one woman's dramatic recovery from life-threatening illness

At the age of 38, Danish scientist Rikke Schmidt Kj rgaard is struck down by an acute bout of bacterial meningitis. Weeks later, she wakes from a coma in intensive care to find herself "locked in," unable to show she is conscious except by blinking her eyes. Despite a mere 5 percent chance of survival, she makes a miraculous recovery and returns to the world--painfully learning how to breathe, move, eat, and speak again, even resume her work as a scientist. The Blink of an Eye is a celebration of love, family, and every little thing that matters when life is in the balance--by a writer uniquely positioned to describe the journey from death back to life.
