It was one day in October that a familys life would be forever changed. Some could say for the better, while others may argue for the worse. Kay Wagner, a registered nurse since 1985, spent most of her professional career in critical care settings. Her love has been in caring for patients in the specialized area of neurology/neurosurgery, those with such disorders as strokes, back and spinal cord injuries, aneurysms, and brain tumors. Never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined that such skills would be put to the test in her own personal life. Her oldest daughter Kara would be diagnosed with a brain cyst that was to be surgically treated with a shunt. Acting on her professional instincts as a nurse and more importantly on her gut instincts as a mother, she delves deeper into her daughters diagnosis and finds that Kara had not only a cyst, but a rare malignant brain tumor. Karas Courage is a heartwarming true story that will take you on a journey of uncertainty, fear, and humbleness as experienced by the author in her forever conflicting roles as a nurse and as a mother from the other side of the stretcher.

A vital and timely book about inspirational nurses, and the bravery of patients and families, from the bestselling author of The Language of Kindness "The handbook for compassion... a must-read book" Chris Evans Nurses have never been more important. We benefit from their expertise in our hospitals and beyond: in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes. When we feel most alone, nurses remind us that we are not alone at all. In The Courage to Care bestselling author Christie Watson reveals the remarkable extent of nurses' work. A community mental-health nurse choreographs support for a man suffering from severe depression. A teen with stab wounds is treated by the critical-care team; his school nurse visits and he drops the bravado. A pregnant woman loses frightening amounts of blood following a car accident; it is a military nurse who synchronises the emergency department into immaculate order and focus. Christie makes a further discovery: that, time and again, it is patients and their families - including her own - who show exceptional strength in the most challenging times. We are all deserving of compassion, and as we share in each other's suffering, Christie Watson shows us how we can find courage too. The courage to care. "I loved The Courage to Care - Christie Watson writes so tenderly and truthfully. It is a spirit-lifting read" Jacqueline Wilson

It was a low-level panic at first, but very quickly there were big changes taking place. Day by day, wards were being cleared to make way for Covid-positive patients. Things were getting worse by the day. For the first time in my nursing career, I felt scared. As a palliative care nurse, it is Kelly Critcher's job to look death in the eye - to save a patient while the fight can still be won, and confront life's end with grace and kindness when it can't. In early 2020, everything changed for nurses on the NHS front line. Working on Covid wards and the High Dependency Unit, Kelly spent the height of the coronavirus crisis at Northwick Park hospital - perhaps the UK hospital most deeply ravaged by the illness. She, and many others like her, battled tirelessly in a critical care unit pushed to breaking point, delivering the bad news and fighting the good fight, day-in, day-out, throughout the gravest test our health service has faced since its inception. Kelly's story weaves together her raw, emotional diaries from the COVID frontline with a broader reflection on the truths about a life spent caught between battling for her patients' lives and helping them face down death with courage and compassion. Bringing together the enormity of the last twelve months - and the scars it will leave - this is a book for our times.
