046: Widowed Parenting with Jenny Lisk
It all started for Jenny when her husband said one evening that he’d been feeling a bit dizzy. No big deal, right? Call the doctor, get to the bottom of it…boom…fixed!? Not quite. A simple trip to internal medicine and an MRI turned into brain surgery two days later, followed by a diagnosis of brain cancer (glioblastoma … same type as John McCain, Beau Biden, Teddy Kennedy). And then 8 months of cancer & caregiving, and then he was gone. She set out to write the book that she wanted so desperately to find when she first became a widowed parent at the age of 43. She wanted to know what to expect. Kind of like that book “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” But more like “what to expect when the other parent dies.” She had been kicking the idea of a podcast around for over two years, trying to figure out what approach would make sense.-because she’s not a therapist or a grief counselor. Jenny Lisk is the host of a podcast called The Widowed Parent. Her shows offers advice and her story as a fellow widowed parent on a mission … a mission to help her kids to somehow thrive in spite of their terrible loss.
