Kitchen Table Surgery: Tales from a Part Time Father, Novice Part Time Farmer, and Full Time Brain Surgeon (Paperback)
Enter the unbelievable; knee-slapping; and sometimes exaggerated life of Dr. Daniel Cooper; his "perpetually-pregnant" wife; their seven kids; and his career as a neurosurgeon.
Kitchen Table Surgery is a humorous memoir from Dr. Daniel Cooper: a full-time neurosurgeon; part-time novice farmer raising seven kids on a small farm with an almost always pregnant wife. The neurosurgeon had to treat his seven children for their multiple injuries and illnesses - or he would have to spend his whole life in urgent care centers
Among the many stories chronicled: the removal of fishing hooks from nearly every body part; buying (and learning to treat) a sick horse; and how to endure the scourge of Mother Nature when you gather flowers and receive chiggers and poison ivy in return.
Readers will resonate with Daniel's seemingly always-pregnant wife; his children's trials and tribulations; and the funny family moments along the way.
