Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the
Named a Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post, The New York Times Book Review, NPR, and Chicago Tribune, now in paperback with a new reading group guideMedicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming the dangers of childbirth, injury, and disease from harrowing to manageable. But when it comes to the inescapable realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should.Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they are allowed to eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients' anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them.In his bestselling books, Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon, has fearlessly revealed the struggles of his profession. Now he examines its ultimate limitations and failures-in his own practices as well as others'-as life draws to a close. Riveting, honest, and humane, Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life-all the way to the very end.

In the rolling dales of Yorkshire, a simple, rural region of northern England, a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in a strange land, he must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike. This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the author’s own experiences, became an international success, spawning sequels and winning over animal lovers everywhere.

Babo Care Shoulder Stability Brace with Pressure Pad Light and Breathable Neoprene Shoulder Support for Rotator Cuff, Dislocated AC Joint, Labrum Tear, Shoulder Pain, Shoulder Compression Sleeve
Babo Care Shoulder Stability Brace with Pressure Pad
Most shoulder problems fall into four major categories: (1) Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear (2) Instability (3) Arthritis (4) Fracture (broken bone) Other much less common causes of shoulder pain are tumors, infection, and nerve-related problems. Anatomy: Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The head of your upper arm bone fits into a rounded socket in your shoulder blade. This socket is called the glenoid. A combination of muscles and tendons keeps your arm bone centered in your shoulder socket. These tissues are called the rotator cuff. They cover the head of your upper arm bone and attach it to your shoulder blade. The Ultimate Buyers Guide to Shoulder Braces A shoulder brace is a sling-like device designed to support and strengthen your shoulder. Shoulder braces are not for day-to-day use, but rather for individuals who have experienced a shoulder injury. A shoulder brace can be used to heal your shoulder quickly and avoid such damage. Unlike a basic sling, shoulder braces provide stronger, more reliable support. As your rehab progresses, a shoulder brace can be used to increase "proprioception"-your sense of how your body is positioned. ...

I didn’t notice her before…but now I do.The shiny strands of gold in her silky brown hair.Tiny crinkles between her eyebrows when she frowns.Her passion for neatness.Once I focus on her, I can’t take my eyes from my newest obsession. Ever.I need to know everything about her.Her past. Her present. The way she takes her coffee.Exactly how she smells after a spritz of perfume in the mornings.She’s perfect in every way and I was blind.But, God, now do I see.I notice the organized way she arranges her clothes in her closet.How she visits the same market each Saturday. The sounds of her breathing as I lie beneath her bed in silence.Violet is mine.She just doesn’t know it yet. ***WARNING***Notice is a dark and unusual romance. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you.
