About The Book
“A remarkable story about courage and comebacks. A wonderful book packed with hope and life. Highly recommended.” — FaithfulReader.com
“The author masterfully depicts each scene with a unique form of cinematic realism that allows the reader to be a part of the deep emotions that are revealed throughout the pages of this book. In all my years of reviewing, I have never had a book affect me so much. I feel I have gained so much by having this experiencing of reading this book. The emotions and tears of pain, sorrow, and loss was mixed with joy, hope, and new foundations. No book even comes close to being able to show how tragedy can be met and overcome in a positive light. I strongly encourage anyone who finds himself in a difficult situation to consider this book as a source of strength and courage. I believe serious consideration should be given to turning this true-life story into a Lifetime Movie film. Very highly recommended.” — Suzie Housley, MyShelf.com
While out with his family one night, six-year-old Andrew Bateson feels suddenly feverish. Although they do not yet know it, Andrew has bacterial meningitis, one of the fastest and deadliest of all infections.
Over the next three weeks, as Andrew lies in a coma, the hospital fights an often minute-by-minute battle to keep him alive. Overwhelmed, Andrew’s parents pull away from each other, and their friends wonder if the marriage will survive. While doctors ultimately saved Andrew’s life, they weren’t able to save his legs. Both had to be amputated below the knees. Some questioned whether he would ever walk again. Yet as he recovered, Andrew stunned his family by saying he wanted to play ice hockey. What happened next stunned them even more.
Just the Way He Was Before is a true story of unexpected triumph — of medicine, family, and faith. And of the human spirit itself.
