Introduction

Living in the Doctor’s Nest is a compilation of stories about the life of a doctor who cares for extremely premature infants. As the stories unfold, we learn about the challenges that she faced as she began to practice in her field and how she ultimately fulfilled her goal of developing specialized units for the extremely premature newborn. Along the way, we meet her family and friends. We get to know the nurses and respiratory therapists that provided the care, and we are introduced to the "scorpions," the obstacles that lay in wait to derail the process along the way.
