A Season with Mom: Love, Loss, and the Ultimate Baseball Adventure by Katie Russell Newland

 

 

“Maybe you’ve been putting your own dreams on hold. Maybe you’re recovering from your own illness. Maybe you’ve lost someone you care about . . . After reading this book, you’ll be eager to imagine your own amazing next season.” -- Peyton Manning, from the foreword

 A Season with Mom offers readers an intimate, true story about the bond shared between a mother and daughter, a road trip to all 30 Major League Baseball (MLB) parks, and the importance of relishing every joy and struggle along the way.

The book is highly recommended for

  • mothers and daughters
  • cancer survivors
  • baseball and sports fans of all ages
  • anyone who has experienced loss . . . and maybe fallen in love along the way

Join Katie as she travels more than 30,000 miles to all 30 MLB parks in a single season, a rare feat covered by the likes of ESPN. Along with black-and-white photographs, Katie shares letters written to her mom, who died of cancer before the two of them could go on the adventure of a lifetime together.

During the journey, Katie beautifully illustrates the brevity of life, the impetus of adventure, and the clarity that comes by watching America’s favorite pastime.

A Season with Mom reminds readers that in life, as in baseball, sometimes you strike out, but sometimes you hit home runs. And even if the wait is longer than you’d hoped--like it was for the Chicago Cubs’ long-sought World Series win--dreams can come true.

50 Years in the OR: True Stories of Life, Loss, and Laughter While Giving Anesthesia by Ronald Whitchurch

 

 

The First Book about the Unsung Heroes of the Operating Room

Ron Whitchurch has the observation, wit and insight of a modern day Mark Twain and the eyebrows and mustache to match."

Koco Eaton, MD, ABOS, Team Physician, Tampa Bay Rays


“An extraordinary book which brilliantly and compellingly conveys the day-to-day workings of the operating room.” 

Kevin M. Sweeney, MD, board-certified neurosurgeon, former chief of Neurosurgery of Mease hospitals in Dunedin and Clearwater, Florida


It’s a busy time for the anesthetist during surgery. Keeping a watchful eye on the patient’s vital signs and being prepared for any possibilities that might develop are an anesthetist’s prime focus. Each case is unique, whether it’s a scheduled surgery on a healthy patient, an emergency or a critical illness. They all require analytical judgments along with many skills to manage them.


Ron Whitchurch wrote this wildly entertaining book to offer a firsthand look at what happens after patients are anesthetized and what challenges the staff face in keeping them healthy and safe. 


50 Years in the OR gives readers an intimate sense of what it’s like to be the only person in the OR who knows the heartbeat-to-heartbeat status of a surgical patient at any given moment.
