Sinopsis: This book is what is known in the trade as an illness narrative. It is the personal story of a liver transplant patient/recipient, chronicling the treatment from the onset of first symptoms through the transplant procedure. It is often humorous, always informative, supplying information that any potential patient and his/her family would want to know about liver transplantation, from symptom to success. There is a section of medical terminology; the book was carefully edited by medical personnel: hepatologist, surgeon, nurse coordinator who were a part of the recipient's "team." Other case histories are supplied briefly in order to extend the reach of the book. It is human and warm, funny and chilling, a good "read" for anyone in this time of medical miracles and new protocols.
About the Author: The liver recipient/author of "I'm Glad You're Not Dead," Elizabeth Parr, Ph.D, has been a professor of English at the University of St. Thomas, Houston, Texas, since 1970. She has, in her lifetime worn many hats, including a nun's veil. She was a member of a Catholic religious community for seventeen years, and remained at the University of St. Thomas to teach, after leaving her religious order. Her educational background includes The University of Dallas, Catholic University of America, New York University, The University of Texas Austin and Columbia Pacific University. She was transplanted at The Universitiy of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, after being listed with UNOS in 1993, on October 24, 1994. Recognizing the dearth of information for the transplant patient and family, and knowing that she should, after a lifetime of teaching narrative, be able to chronicle her own experience for the benefit of others, she wrote this book. Its wide reception testifies to its need. Most recently, on September 11, 1998, in Portland, Oregon, Elizabeth delivered the keynote address at the International Transplant Nurses' Society's annual symposium. Currently, a second edition of this book, and another co-authored with her nurse coordinator, and also targeted at the transplant community, are in progress.
