Confronting Medical Uncertainty

Six weeks after giving birth, Elizabeth Silver got the news every new mother dreads – her infant daughter had suffered a serious brain injury and would need months of specialized care. She joins us to talk about what it’s like as a parent to feel helpless when your child’s future is up in the air. Her memoir is called “The Tincture of Time: A Memoir of (Medical) Uncertainty” (Penguin Press). She speaks tonight at 7:30 at Wild Detectives.
