Columbia, SC- It's a medical phenomenon with no real explanation. Author Judy Goldman, from the Carolinas, details how a routine procedure left her husband paralyzed in her new memoir, released just last month.

Together: Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap accounts how Goldman found herself thrown into a new role as her husband's advocate - navigating byzantine hospital policies, demanding and refusing treatments, and seeking solutions to help him win back his independence. As she tries to envision her family's future, she discovers a new, more resilient version of herself. The memoir is a story of the life that we imagine versus the life that we lead - an elegant and empathetic meditation on partnership, aging and love.
