[i]Mayday![/i] is a medical-odyssey journal of the thoughts, feelings, humor and spirituality of an American physician during months of hospitalization. Rising on swells of optimism and tugged down by pain, infections, operations and adverse outcomes, he drifts through waters too deep to stand in and too dark for him to see hidden dangers. The illness ends in New Zealand, two years later. This body, mind, and spirit experience of dying and returning to health is a personal and universal journey.Lohaus, Allan is the author of 'Mayday! A Physician As Patient', published 2006 under ISBN 9780975592298 and ISBN 0975592297.
