Farewell – Vital End-of-Life Questions and Candid Answers from a Leading Palliative and Hospice Physician
Being present at the bedside—and even at the moment of death—can become an experience embedded in the minds and souls of family members for generations. It is a deeply emotional time, one of relief and sadness. Anyone who has taken that final journey with a loved one will never, ever forget those moments.
Dr. Edward Creagan (known as Dr. Ed) has dedicated his life to death. And now this esteemed medical doctor examines death, not only from a medical standpoint, but from an acutely emotional perspective as events beyond our control unfold. Sandra Wendel (Omaha, NE) is his coauthor.
For more than forty years, Dr. Ed has been at the bedside with patients at the Mayo Clinic, addressing the end-of-life questions patients and their families ask. This book is about navigating those last days, at the bedside, and saying farewell with hope, love, and compassion. He is a cancer specialist, the first Mayo Clinic doctor board certified in hospice and palliative medicine.
This is the second book by these authors. Their first is the triple-industry award-winning book How Not to Be My Patient: A Physician's Secrets for Staying Healthy and Surviving Any Diagnosis.
Available on Amazon in paperback, ebook, and audiobook. At the local Omaha bookstore: Bookworm at 90th and Center.
