To make a sad part of life, a treasured part of life. I am so humbled and joyful knowing that this little book has done just that for many. I am also grateful that people have been kind enough to tell me how the book affected their lives.

Based on the author's three month odyssey helping her mother live at home while dying, Be The Noodle chronicles the crazy things that happen during this unpredictable journey, things that no medical, hospice, or traditional how-to-deal-with-dying books explain.From the gut wrenching, like not being able to call 911 during a crisis once you sign up with hospice and struggling to be kind and helpful when you feel like a sleepless shrew, to the mundane, like dealing with too many banana breads from well wishers and advocating for patient martinis with the oncologist.  Part love story, part how-to manual, part memoir, Be The Noodle  shows readers how to find superpowers they never knew that had, stay sane, take comfort in sick humor, find compassion and become crazy-good caregivers, one of the most courageous jobs most of us never wanted or have ever been trained to do.
Reviews:
  • Pettalo
Excellent down to earth, helpful, humorous book based on a real experience. Not your routine, dry academic thesis on the topic. Highly recommend to anyone facing the prospect of caring for or already a primary caregiver for a family member. Good, solid, practical stuff. Gave copies to the hospice personnel in the facility that provided care for my wife.
  • Whiteseeker
If I had written a book about my caregiving experience,it would have been very much like this book! I loved the plain spoken language and the simplicity of the book.Everybody who has found themselves in the caregiver experience,will be able to relate to all that Lois Kelly and her family went through.It helped me so much to put things in prospective and to see this experience in a more positive way.What a blessing it was! I have bought many copies to share with others.Caregivers,you are not alone!Lois Kelly says,it's "one of the most courageous jobs you never wanted"!A wonderful blessing to read!
  • Niwield
Kelly's book consists of 50 well written short chapters with catchy titles and caregiver lessons at the end. There are 50 chapters in 124 pages -- easy, and entertaining to read, but they tell the serious side of helping a loved one die. I flipped through and read chapters out of order, and then had to go back and read cover to cover! I am keeping it on my coffee table to share!
  • Uste
Was looking for specifics although not quite certain what those specifics were. This was first time I've found myself to be a caregiver. Some of the highlights were somewhat helpful, but not exactly what I needed. Does give some basics and that was helpful.
  • Dorilune
This is an amazing book for anyone who is a caregiver for someone they love. Whether or not your loved one is dying young of a devastating and unexpected disease, or, an older parent or family member who is just dying of old age. With wit and wisdom Lois Kelly takes the reader through an incredible journey. Her courage through some very dark times reminds us all that we can be the noodle too.
  • Ueledavi
As a caregiver of a terminally ill patient, I laughed and cried with this book. So easy to read and so 'right-on'!
  • Bearus
Lois Kelly has done the impossible: she has written her way through one of the most crucial periods in each of our lives - the modus exodus - and her writings are not only excellent in a technical sense, but they are also full of compassion - for both the person exiting life and the one left to tend to that ext and beyond. This is one of those books that can (and should) be read on several levels. It is a superb set of directions for providing a dignified manner of dying while maintaining the sanity of the caregiver. It is an hilarious dialogue about all of those inappropriate things people do in and around dying people. It is a reinforcing guide for those who are placed in the role of caregiver. And it is a model of intelligent and compassionate philosophy about the full cycle of life.

Kelly writes in a manner that is contagious to read. Her 'chapters' are brief followed by a Caregiver Lesson #__ that summarizes the reasons for response to each situation. She discusses medical decisions (and responses to those), hospices, anger, pity, dealing with personal lives while being ever present for the dying person, even how to manage the do-gooders that inundate a household with excessive but well meaning banana bread! Kelly is realistic and shows us how she arrived at her ideas in a way that includes, always, the consideration of her dying mother. She simply has it down to a 'science' - and is the first to share the concepts that everything she says is just her experienced opinion. Right down to the moments of death and the planning and execution of a memorial service.

Part memoir, part instruction manual, and part a novel of love pushed to unexpected extremes, BE THE NOODLE (a phrase that refers to the Styrofoam piece that supports those who wade too far out in the ocean and keeps them from drowning) is a wildly entertaining and comfortingly compassionate book about 'fifty ways to be a compassionate, crazy-good caregiver'. It is a terrific read! Grady Harp, March 10
Now we have some training before actually being thrust into the role of caregiver to a loved one who is terminally ill. Lois Kelly shares her experience of helping her mother to die and gives those of us who have not yet had this experience the benefit of her journey. We don't have to learn everything on the job. I was very moved and inspired by Kelly's wisdom, her deep compassion, and her humanity. The writing is captivating, and covers the entire spectrum of emotions, the struggles and also the joy. It is about connecting and is also a very practical guide.

I would recommend a different title. But I would highly recommend this book in spite of the title.
It is wonderfully written, humorous, real, and sorely needed. Personally, I find it upsetting that her mother's wishes were not honored. Why do we treat our animals so much more humanely when they are at end stage and suffering than we do our fellow humans?

I have an elderly mother and will use Be A Noodle as a reference and a guide when the time comes. While I am not looking forward to it, I am comforted in knowing that these skills may help me navigate in rough waters. The greatest gift to anyone is to be fully present. Lois Kelly understands this and shares her message with her readers. I hope this book reaches a wide audience. In our culture of denial this book will bring real comfort through compassion and connection. Thank you, Lois Kelly.
