Honest, blunt, and written in real time, this book is admittedly a tear-jerker. We know the ending; Steve died. But the process was a roller coaster, and offers useful perspectives to anyone dealing with chronic illness, relationships, stepchildren, crises, the medical system in general - and medical education in specific.
Let Me Go When the Banter Stops is available on Amazon.com,
in paperback and on Kindle.
Rowing colleagues will resonate with the frequent references to rowing and Lake Washington Rowing Club - my hold onto the semblence of sanity I was able to maintain during Steve's illness.
Do you have a group that needs a speaker?
As a zealot for the prevention of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and most especially lifestyle-related kidney disease, I am looking for opportunities to speak. Invitations to speak for breakfast meetings, keynote addresses, lectures, and bookclub presentations are all welcomed. I am especially interested in speaking to medical/nursing personnel, and health care professionals in training. Let me know what you need.
So, this little blog, Rowing Through the Winter, will end; rowing and other new projects will continue. Thank you for your interest.
