Stuffing Sandwiches Down My Shirt…
Strategies & Inspiration for Crutch Users
by Heather Dugan
“Give Heather an ‘A’ for Attitude!” “Should be required reading given out with crutches... As a surgeon, I strongly recommend my patients to read this perspective BEFORE their procedure.” “A pre-op reading ‘must!’ (and) required reading’ for those who think recuperating after any surgery is ‘just something to get through… what your surgeon won’t tell you!” “You will be inspired to put your own ‘best foot forward’…” Sandwiches… (demonstrates) the difference between ‘waiting-for-it-to-be-over’ and meeting the post-surgery challenge creatively ‘armed’ and with gusto.” “A great story about Heather’s determination to not let a temporary setback like ‘walking on crutches’ stop her from being happy, active and fit —mentally, emotionally and physically.” “Because Heather speaks from a very kind heart, Sandwiches… is more than a DIY manual— it’s as if Heather becomes your personal mentor urging you to adopt your own ‘yes, I can’ attitude.”
Should be required reading given out with crutches! Stuffing Sandwiches Down My Shirt… is a very practical and inspirational look at how to survive and excel in recovering from an injury or in this case, surgery. Ms. Dugan uses her upbeat humor to share her own thoughts and creative solutions to the very real challenges encountered during recovery from surgery. She also shows how one can take ownership of their recovery and stay active in the recovery but in safe and practical manner. As a surgeon, I will strongly recommend my patients to read this perspective BEFORE their procedure when possible so they can be as knowledgable and proactive as possible. Thanks for sharing this perspective Heather! Dr. Christopher Hyer, DPM
