Description


In Awe of Being Human: A Doctor's Stories from the Edge of Life and Death is a physician's reflection on living, healing and dying set amidst the challenging world of hospitals, the medical professionals who work in them, and the ever-present mystery of life and death. Filled with heroic tales of the children and adults who have been the author's patients, together with descriptions of the soul-stretching experiences that doctors undergo in seeking to help people whose lives are at stake, the book delivers a tender and powerfully positive message about what it means to be human.

About the Author


Based on decades of work as a hospital physician and end-of-life researcher, and her own experience as a cancer patient, Dr. MacGregor has come to view illness and death as profound teachers that carve out in us a deeper understanding of what it means to be human. Now retired from clinical practice and living in the Pacific Northwest, she remains active as a writer, speaker and founding board member of Enso House, a hospice residence providing compassionate, holistic care for terminally ill patients and their families.
