I SEE YOU: OBSERVATIONS FROM THE ICU
Life can change in a single moment…
Noted international food writer, poet, and educator Monica Bhide was a planner, a list maker who worried about “things big and small” until her husband’s life-threatening illness changed everything. As he lay in a coma in the ICU, Bhide was relegated to the sidelines, powerless, until she came to the realization that all we have is now, and all we can control is our mindset. Laced with her personal stories from the ICU — from the friends who showed up with food and prayers to the stranger who shared her potato chips and optimism — I See You is the story of finding peace and happiness amid the pain and uncertainty.
With her trademark insight, wisdom, and evocative prose, Bhide takes readers along on the emotional and transcendental journey of being a caregiver for a loved one — a journey filled with fear, helplessness, guilt, and frustration, but also humor, love, and the shining light of hope. Because “where there is hope, there is possibility, and possibility carries happiness in its folds.”
