The Blink of an Eye
- A Memoir of Dying - and Learning How to Live Again
- Written by: Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard, Bill Bryson - foreword
- Narrated by: Stina Nielsen, Timothy Andrés Pabon
- Length: 6 hrs
At the age of 38, Danish scientist Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard is struck down by an acute bout of bacterial meningitis. Weeks later, she wakes from a coma in intensive care to find herself “locked in,” unable to show she is conscious except by blinking her eyes. Despite a mere 5 percent chance of survival, she makes a miraculous recovery and returns to the world - painfully learning how to breathe, move, eat, and speak again, even resume her work as a scientist.
