Lois Gerber

Author Lois Gerberabout this book: The twelve short stories in the e-book, Nurses and Their Patients: Compassion and Commitment, are composite stories, some fictionalized, about patients and nurses I have known during my forty years as a community health nurse. The anecdotes bring the reader into a place in the lives of patients, families, and their nurses that few are privileged to enter.

All of the characters display compassion to another person and/or commitment to an ideal; many struggle to maintain these feelings on a consistent basis but eventually learn to balance their own needs with the higher good. They often make heroic efforts to do that. Readers will become acquainted with a hockey dad who dreams of his son following in his footsteps to a teenage girl with Down Syndrome who is searching for the meaning of "boyfriend love." The stories, focused around different illnesses and social issues, show the connection between giving and receiving and will appeal to anyone interested in learning about personal relationships.
