Description

The author comes face-to-face with the medical establishment, finding strange unfamiliar words and procedures, resulting in new feelings and new ways to look at life. Sometimes cynical, sometimes whimsical, but always truthful and sobering. Without confusing medical terms, he describes the various modalities incorporated in our hospitals and the unique figures that perform their magic. Not to be left out are the special folks he runs into while getting treatment. Dickensian characters and the land of Oz witches come to mind whilst seeking sane treatment from some highly questionable medical practitioners, doctors yelling at him for asking questions, staff neglect over the most mundane things that take on super-relevance like the ever-disappearing tissue box. For further clarification, a few pages of the author's early life are included, and a bit about 911 seemed appropriate, along with a mere smidgen of a poetic verse from his vast poetic works available soon. All royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in memory of Emma Olan, a fearless warrior for life.
