A young Jewish doctor prays to a coma patient's Blessed Mother on Christmas Eve, only to have the woman suddenly awakened; there is the voice that tells a too-busy ER doctor to stop a patient walking out, discovering an embolus that would have killed him. The late-night passing of a beloved aunt summons a childhood bully who shows up minutes later, after twenty-five years, to be forgiven and to heal a broken doctor. This ER doctor finds God's opposite in: a battered child's bruises covered over by make-up, a dying patient whose son finally shows up at the end to reclaim the man's high-top sneakers, the rich or celebrity patients loaded with prescription drugs from doctor friends who end up addicted. But, his real outrage is directed at our cavalier treatment of the elderly, If you put a G-tube in your 80-year-old mother with Alzheimer's because she's no longer eating, you will probably have a fast track to hell.

Industry Reviews

An AMAZING book with lots of detail & description of a passionate ER doctor and his experiences! Wow! I couldn't put it down! An easy book to pick up and read a couple of chapters, or the entire book in one sitting! Looking for a good cry or laugh? Or just want to learn about a subject many of us don't ever encounter. This book is it! (J. Cline) It was excellent! You had me laughing and crying, and always entertained. I hope that this is the first of many books to come. Please keep writing! (S. Devol)
