She has spent her life “saving” Kate, and Picoult shows this through a clever quotation. Later that night after the hockey game, Kate suddenly woke up to blood streaming out of her nose, eyes and rectum. When Brian and Sara were informed by the doctor that administering poison therapy would prolong Kate’s life, but not save it, Sara broke down. She called her older sister, Suzanne, unable to speak and begged her to come to the hospital. Picoult continues on this theme of “saving” by using Suzanne as Sara’s crutch, as she makes her coffee each morning and informs her of any missed phone calls.

| The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven | Book Review | | Tammy Mudd | 10/18/2011 | RDG 030 | The Book I chose to do a review on is “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” by Kevin and Alex Malarkey. In this book Kevin and Alex tell about the accident they were in on November 14, 2004. (vii) The accident was a near death experience for both of them which left Alex paralyzed. I chose this book because I believe in God and the power of prayer, faith, angels, life after death in heaven. Alex and his family having gone through all the trials, with Alex in a coma for several months, is an awesome example of the miracles God can do for us if we believe.

Persuasive Speech: Appeal for Blood Donation Topic: Appeal for blood donation Attention getter: how do you feel when you have to wait impatiently for something you really need? My ten-year-old cousin was involved in a fatal road accident the other day, and she needed blood so urgently. She went on the waiting list immediately, but it took us a few hours before we could get a possible donor the blood banks did not have her blood type, and we were worried. Lucky enough, a man brought his wife to deliver, and after hearing our case, he agreed to donate. This was a relief to us all but what got me wondering is what if another patient came in with the same problem like my cousin?

In February 2006, Emily Jerry, a two-year old child was at a Cleveland hospital to complete her last series of chemotherapy treatment. Her doctor ordered intravenous chemotherapy solution that was filled incorrectly by a pharmacy technician. The prescription called for 1% saline; however, a lethal amount of 23% saline was given instead, causing her to slip into a coma resulting in death. Eric Cropp, who was the supervising pharmacist signed off on the technician’s work despite her informing him that the mixture did not look right; nonetheless, he approved it.
