Tania L Ramosabout this book: Dr. Jack Silver is handed down the dreary diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Lou Gehrig's disease. A prominent surgeon but failed father, he decides not to take any medications and ultimately succumb to his disease in hopes that death will reunite him with his deceased wife and infant daughter. First, he needs to mend ties with his wayward son. But fate takes a cruel turn and the doctor falls into a coma before being able to make amends with his son. Now Travis Silver is left with clues of his mother's mysterious death, his father's involvement, and must fight the clock to decide the fate of his father. Meanwhile, Dr. Silver is trapped in a coma, battling his own demons and memories. Can Dr. Silver heal ties among the living and the dying while in a coma?
Not average romance; Jack is in a coma.
I am a registered nurse with nearly a decade of EMT work prior to nursing. The original disease in the story was a cancer, but after working with a very special patient who suffered from Lou Gehrig's, I knew more knowledge on the disease needed to be shared. I rewrote nearly ten chapters of the novel to change the disease and better explain what ALS is. As a nurse, I want readers to relate to Travis and his struggle to determine whether or not to take his father off life support.
