Not Done Yet: A Tale of Transformation Through Transplant Surgery

Not Done Yet: A Tale of Transformation Through Transplant Surgery

It’s easy to get hooked on the story in Sharon Lamhut Willen’s no-holds-barred memoir because skillfully told anecdotes take readers careening with her and her husband on the roller coaster ride they took as she battled end-stage non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver and, in the process of saving her life, redirected their perspective and repaired their relationship. Imagine the worst mid-life crisis ever - losing your job, feeling your marriage teetering, and-if that was not enough-being leveled by the childhood disease you thought had been conquered decades before. Imagine going from planning a cruise through the Galapagos to carrying toilet cushions into public bathrooms, from dreams of career success to nightmares of floods and destruction. And then imagine the road back from your near death experience - going from measuring every morsel of food that crosses your lips to eating croissants and chocolate pudding with abandon, from being caught in the web of co-addiction to being a fulfilled partner in a truly healthy relationship, from a depressed "what now?" to an enthusiastic "what's next?" The insights and practical resources Willen offers on coping with terminal disease and the process of organ distribution will be immensely helpful to would-be transplant recipients. Her generously shared personal reflections reveal the intelligence and humor she brought to bear while nurturing connections with the “angel guides” she credits with saving her life. Together, these serve as powerful models for anyone facing life’s challenges and transitions. A worthwhile read for anyone who has ever asked, "Why me?", "What now?" and "Can I handle this?" "Sharon is definitely 'Not Done Yet...' as shared in this inspiring and faith based story of her not just surviving but truly thriving with the gift of a donated liver. Filled with practical advice for those who follow with their own medical challenges, her testimony is rich in lived life experiences that will give much needed hope for her readers." - Jim Gleason, 20 year heart transplant recipient, president of TRIO (Transplant Recipients International Organization), and author of "A Gift from the Heart."

True Valor: Barney Clark and the Utah Artificial Heart

True Valor: Barney Clark and the Utah Artificial Heart

On December 2, 1982, the fully mechanical Jarvik-7 heart was placed inside Barney Clark, culminating years of painstaking research and making medical history by successfully pumping Clark’s blood for 112 days. True Valor takes an in-depth look at this significant event by telling the story of the doctors and researchers involved, of Barney Clark, and of the evolution of the artificial heart before and after Clark’s transplant. Author Don Olsen is well positioned to tell this story, having worked on the artificial heart project under Dr. Willem Kolff, the man behind the Jarvik-7. His narrative conveys the concerns and emotions of those who were part of Clark’s story while offering the insights of one who knows that research does not happen overnight but takes time, resources, and the efforts of many people. Olsen’s account shares the human sides of this story along with the embedded politics and technical details of medical research in clear, readable language.

Heartbreaker: Christiaan Barnard and the first heart transplant

Heartbreaker: Christiaan Barnard and the first heart transplant

In this new biography of Chris Barnard we not only learn about the life of South Africa’s most famous surgeon, from his Beaufort West childhood through his studies locally and abroad to his prominent marriages – and divorces – but James Styan also examines the impact of the historic heart transplant on Barnard’s personal life and South African society at large, where apartheid legislation often made the difficulties of medicine even more convoluted. The role of black medical staff like Hamilton Naki is explored, as is the intense rivalry that arose between other famous heart surgeons and Barnard. How did Barnard manage to beat them all in this race of life and death? How much did his famous charisma have to do with it all? And in the light of his later years, his subsequent successes and considerable failures, what is Barnard’s legacy today? Styan covers it all in this fascinating new account of a real heartbreaker.

More Specifically, I Am Trying To Build A Wide Repertoire Of Chinese Art Characteristics That Look Visually Relatable To Everyone. I Believe Traditional Chinese Art Needs To Bring In New Elements In Order To Stay Relevant. My Artwork May Tend More Towards The National Chinese Style, But My Teacher Used To Tell Me,¡±a Drawing Without Creativity Does Not Have Value.¡± I Have Found Ways To Express Chinese Traditional Art And Literature With A Modern Sensibility. If Tattooing Is To Be Regarded As An Art Form, Then An Artist¡¯s Creative Attitude Must Be Brought Into The Process Of Making Tattoos.I Learned About Western Drawing And How Tight And Structured It Is. But With Chinese Drawings, It Is More About The Spirit Behind The Artwork. Chinese Drawings And Paintings Are Not Too Tight Or Too Serious, Chasing A Picture Without Any Darkness, Like Pursuing A Bright Future. I Combine Eastern And Western Together In My Tattoos, Which Brings Me Happiness. My Other Artwork Outside Of Tattooing Is Also Based On This Creative Impulse.In My Artwork, I Often Use Chinese Traditional Symbols Or Other Meaningful Elements From The Past.
