Just Here Doctor from the Author: Robert Clifford. Just Here, Doctor is the true story of a young country doctor and his patients - a richly entertaining and humorous chronicle of the life of a small West Country community as seen through the eyes of its G.P. Dr Clifford has some marvellous stories to tell: about the home delivery of a cricket fan's baby - in between overs of a televised Test Match; of the time he rode off on a gigantic horse to attend a hunting casualty - and rode back in an ambulance as the casualty; and the amazing saga of his student rugby tour of France - the craziest, most drunken ever undertaken. Here too, on the more serious side, are moving accounts of the courage of ordinary people in the face of serious, even fatal illness. Teeming with colourful and curious places and characters, Just Here, Doctor is packed with comedy, drama and tragedy, every bit as warm and enthralling as James Herriot's famous stories of a vet's life.

An emergency medicine physician for nearly a decade, Dr. Pamela Grim has delivered babies, treated heart attacks, saved car accident victims, comforted the dying, and consoled the living who were left behind.

Country Doctor from the Author: Shirley Gish. Claire Louise Caudill is one of those rare people who have become legends in their own time. She delivered more than 8,000 babies over the years, in and around her hometown of Morehead, Kentucky. In 1995 she was named Country Doctor of the Year, and she has been interviewed by CBS and featured in USA Today. Dr. Caudill stopped delivering babies when she turned seventy, but today, at the age of 86, she remains in practice- her patients won't let her retire! Her friend Susie Halbleib has served as nurse in Caudill's clinic since it opened in 1946. Caudill was instrumental in establishing a hospital in Morehead and for more than fifty years has worked to improve health care for the people of the Kentucky hill country. The first part of Country Doctor tells Caudill's story through interviews with Dr. Caudill, Nurse Halblieb, and the people who know them best. The second reproduces a one-woman, two-act play entitled Me 'n Susie, inspired by Dr. Caudill's warmth and humor. Together, the play and interviews provide a vivid picture of life in the hills of Eastern Kentucky and a remarkable portrait of two great women in medicine.

Elena And Ellie from the Author: Sophia Sangsongkhram. A dense forest on a dark and misty night; Elena and Ellie were so terrified they ran for their lives. The forest was pitch black. Elena and Ellie ran into trees. Under branches, not stopping for anything; GASPING for breath. They both resisted looking behind them. They just ran as fast as they could. “This way princesses;” Came a mysterious voice. Both of them ran towards the voice. “Luis!” they both yelled. “Shhh. Follow me,” whispered Luis. He took them away from the troop of army men who were mind -controlled by the devil to kill the princesses. The voices of the army men followed them, calling out “we’re going to get you.” The six of the man chased them through the forest. Elena and Ellie followed Luis through the tree. Behind Ellie and Elena the six men surrounded them. Luis restrained them with his left arm and drew his sword, getting ready to fight, so they were protected. Elena did the same she drew her sword and held it above her head, there was a clash of swards as they fought the army men and beat them off. “Let’s go girls no time to waste.” “We need to go find a place to sleep for the night.’’ Ellie saw a cave. They went into it to see if they could sleep in it. “This seems like a good enough place to sleep,” Elena suggested. “Luis agreed. Next morning Ellie woke up in a panicking reaction. ”Elena wake up! Luis is gone, what are we going to do now!” Ellie Shouted. ”Calm down, everything will be ok. I won’t let anything happen to you ok? He might be somewhere around here we just need to wait for him to come back.” Elena gave Ellie a big hug. Luis appeared. “Good morning girls.’’ He had bunches of fruit in his hands. “This is all I could find for now. Ellie ran towards and gave him a hug. “Wow! I am here now” said Luis. ‘’Never leave us alone like that again ok! I...I...I thought you were gone.” Elena was crying with happiness to see Luis again. Luis gave Ellie a hug to make her feel safe again; he could see how strong Elena was. She didn’t complain about anything. She stood there and felt sorry for her sister. She felt that her sister needed more attention and that she needed to feel safe. Luis’s eye meets Elena’s eyes telling her not to worry and he will make sure that Ellie felt safe and protected. “Sorry Ellie next time I’ll be more careful, I’ll make sure you know where I’m going and I won’t leave you like that again.” “You promise?’’ “I Promise, Ok let’s eat, we need to get going before someone else sees us. The longer we stay the more risk’s we will get”. After breakfast they started their journey it was a fine morning and it was a long day. Ellie started to get really tired. ”Luis...can we please have a brake, I’m so tired.” “Ok Ellie just for a while ok’’ “We must hurry. The army could catch up to us if we don’t hurry up.” Said Elena. They both sat down and Luis was watching out for the army. “We should get moving now” said Luis. “Ok. Let’s go.” They both jumped up and dusted themselves. Luis led them into the forest so their harder to spot. ‘STOMP, STOMP, STOMP’ “they are catching up to us Come on hurry up.” Elena was Worried. “Hey! You lot stop right there.” The man said. “What do we do now? It’s a dead end.” Ellie Yelled. “Don't worry.” Said Elena and hugged her sister. “There's to path ways. Luis takes care of Ellie while I distract the army men.” She gave her sister one last hug. “Be brave Ellie. I’ll find you later and all ways stick with Luis. If I don’t find you two I’ll keep looking for you. Be strong and trust yourself.” “No! Don’t go Elena.” “I have to. It’s for your own good. Find your master with Luis and train good.” “Nooooooo!” “Don't worry about Ellie ,I’ll take good care of her.” “Ok Luis I trust you.” They both ran out to the different paths. “Which one do we follow boss?” “The young one won’t do any good.
