A routine neck adjustment left Sandy Nette trapped in her own body. Paralysed by a series of violent strokes after her arteries were ripped by a chiropractor, she was unable to move or swallow or talk. Suddenly, Sandy was a prisoner of locked-in syndrome, devastatingly aware of the world around her but completely unable to reach it. Sandy could only communicate with those around her by blinking. Barely into her forties, she had been cast into a living hell, a place where few have ventured and actually survived. But neither Sandy, not her devoted husband David, were willing to accept this cruel fate and together they began to fight for their future. Blink: Life After Locked-In Syndrome is the remarkable true story of a young woman's courage, strength and determination to beat the odds. It is also an exceptional tribute to the power of unconditional love. David Nette narrates the events that tore him and Sandy apart and then brought them closer than ever, sharing the trials and triumphs of their unique relationship, one always filled with humour, even in the darkest of days. Blink: Life After Locked-In Syndrome is a story that may just change your life." (Published June 10th 2013) [More background to the book can be found here.]
