Justina Hayden | 7 comments This book is written by the wife of a surgeon who has a heart attack (I think it was that; it was some life-threatening illness, at least). Basically, it was about the absolute importance of always being WITH a loved one who's very ill in a hospital. That sick person REQUIRES someone to be an advocate and watch that the correct things are being done.

It seems to me the word "tears" was in the title and/or "heart".

It is very well written, quite apart from the message.

Anna | 207 comments Might this be Heartsounds, by Martha Weinman Lear? The husband isn't a heart surgeon, but a urologist, going by what Wikipedia says.

Justina Hayden | 7 comments Yes, you nailed it. The author's name is Lear, rhymes with "tear", eh? ;)

I'm glad for the link to Wikipedia. I had no idea it had been made into a movie.

I've been trying to think of that title for a couple years now. I just love this group!
