By Resurrected Books - Published on Amazon.com
When Rhonda Levin's husband suffered a heart attack, she felt completely unprepared - and there was no place to turn to for guidance or aid. So Levin, a phychotherapist, founded HEARTMATES, the first hospital-affiliated program specifically designed to meet the needs of the cardiac spouse as well as the cardiac patient. Here is the caring, sensible, flexible program that can help anyone learn to: deal with hospital and medical staff - understand the system, ask the right questions, and get the answers you need; adjust to a heart-healthy life - face change without going overboard; cope with your emotions - understand and overcome your natural fears, anger, sadness, guilt; take right responsibilities - not overresponsibilities; assess your family's needs - changing rules and roles; banish miscomceptions about sex and heart disease - and renew your loving connection. Plus: Self-help exercises and checklists, recommended reading, how to keep a HEARTMATES diary, and much more.

I wish I had read this before my husband had surgery or while he was in the hospital! I was totally unprepared for the emotions I experienced. I work with cardiac patients in the hospital pretty much every day and have given encouragement to many families. I only wish I could give a copy of this book to each and every one of them.
