Item description for TODAY I HELD A BABY by John R. Hickox...
Humor, pathos, and human interest are the keynotes of this book. As a respiratory therapist, I attended many deliveries during my career. Most of them had happy outcomes, but a few did not. Not only have I included interviews with two families about their special needs, I have also included vignettes about my children as well as exciting programs of which I have been a part. Working with babies was always interesting, always challenging, and always worth whatever it took to help an infant survive. John was born in Waycross, Georgia, and moved to Valdosta, Georgia, to work and attend college. He graduated from Valdosta State College (now Valdosta State University) with a B.S.; Georgia State University School of Allied Health Sciences with emphasis on respiratory therapy; and the Bowman-Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University as a Neonatology Assistant. He served as head of the Respiratory Therapy departments at Virginia Baptist Hospital in Lynchburg, Virginia, and St.Luke's Hospital/McGuire Clinic in Richmond, Virginia. He is retired and lives with his wife Beverly in Valdosta, Georgia. This is his third book.
