Overview

What do you do when the most important person in your life is about to die?Who can help you?How do you keep going?When Alison Murdoch's husband catches viral encephalitis and falls into a life-threatening coma, everything changes. Bed 12 is a survival guide to the world of acute medicine, and a poignant and darkly comic account of what it's like to fight for someone's life.Over the course of a summer, machines beep and clatter, medical staff come and go, and family and friends of varying beliefs offer well-intentioned advice. For someone unfamiliar with hospitals, death and dying, the insights of Buddhism assume a greater relevance than ever before. This book is an astute, profound and uplifting insight into how to cope with despair, heartache and the unknown.'The object of my concern-or rather the entire focus of my current existence-is now lying in Bed 12. Riveting!'Dr Bob Grove, former Chief Executive, the Centre for Mental Health
