Overview

Should a child be withdrawn from medical support
against the mother’s wishes? What if the patient’s
physician is pushing for the withdrawal of this
support and what if this is being overly influenced
by the doctor’s own personal agenda? How much
influence should the government or insurance companies
exert in this decision?

Wendy, the mother of Jacobi, a child with a terminal illness,
refuses to give up on her son, despite pressure from the child’s
primary doctor to withdraw medical support. As the pressure mounts,
Dr. Wes Walker, who is dealing with his own personal struggles,
becomes involved in the care of the young child and quickly runs afoul
of the more senior physician and of the officials of the hospital where
he is an intern, threatening his training and his future career.
Will their combined efforts be enough to prevent Jacobi’s
care from being withdrawn against the mother’s wishes, or will
their efforts fail?

In his first novel, C G Wesley MD, addresses some of these
issues and more. How much influence should an insurance company
or the government have in the doctor-patient relationship,
especially when it may mean rationing of health care based
on cost and likelihood of benefit when dealing with
a chronic or even terminal condition? When can a
parent no longer be in control of making the medical
decisions regarding a child’s care? These issues will be
debated hotly as the costs of health-care are scrutinized
more and more by the government and other payors.
