Wet My Hands (Paperback)
Albert H. Yurvati, DO, PhD, DFACOS, FACOS, FICS, FAHA, is an emeritus professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. He grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and left for the US Army, where he met his soul mate, Sharon.
After medical school, he completed two residencies and was an academic cardiothoracic surgeon of national and international renown. When Sharon suffered an acute thrombotic stroke, he transitioned to become a caregiver. In 2020, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of the bone marrow, and he transitioned yet again, this time to a patient.
Wet My Hands traces the influence the Fates have had on weaving, cutting, and tying the threads of his life. The book resonates with humor, history, and passion. Dr. Yurvati lives in Texas with Sharon and their Scottish fold kittens.
