520    "When a mother's unusual health condition renders her 
       entirely dependent upon you, your sisters, caretakers, and
       companions, the unimaginable will become daily life. In 
       Mothercare, Lynne Tillman writes an honest and 
       straightforward account of doing the impossible: handling 
       her mother as if she were a child; navigating the 
       unnavigable medical world, and confronting her own 
       emotions regarding a suddenly, forever changed 
       relationship to mother and care. In late 1994, Lynne 
       Tillman's mother became ill. For about 11 years this 
       unexpected event changed the focus of three daughters, 
       various caretakers, doctors, and aides. Normal Pressure 
       Hydrocephalus is an unusual condition that's difficult to 
       accurately diagnose. From one day to the next, Tillman's 
       mother went from someone she knew to someone else, 
       becoming entirely dependent on her children in the 
       process. Finding out what happened, and how to cure or 
       treat the condition meant seven surgeries; several 
       misdiagnoses and incorrect prescriptions; confrontations 
       with doctors; and complications associated with memory 
       loss. MOTHERCARE is at once a cautionary tale, and also a 
       reverential invitation for any caretaker who can relate to
       suddenly becoming responsible for the life management 
       practices of a parent, loved or not. This story may be 
       helpful, informative, consoling, or upsetting, and it 
       never fails to underscore how impossible it is to get the 
       job done completely right"--|cProvided by publisher.
