"ABCDEEG" A Father's Journey With His Disabled Son, is the real life story of a young couple, told from the father's perspective, of raising a son with cerebral palsy and temporal lobe epilepsy. It focuses on a layman's viewpoint of a complex medical condition and the toll it takes on a family thrown into a life that no one can prepare for. It relates the heartache and horror as well as the laughter and mayhem that became a part of daily living with a special needs child. In the end, love and perseverance leads them to the Montreal Neurological Hospital where life-changing surgery saves them from facing decisions that no one should ever have to make. A must read for parents of children with disabilities and also those otherwise connected: service providers, medical practitioners, extended family and the community in general.
