    This site graciously sent me a Thanksgiving greeting...…...all very nice ...but.....

    I don't do this anymore, 30 yrs was enough, L2&3 are junk, i'm old, ugly , no longer have a scanner , don't read the papers , game over, retired with all the usual cha cha commendations...done, gone thank you and goodbye.

    So i'm off to the market for a list the wife wants, just crossing the parking lot when I see a woman in her 60's holding onto her grand daughter , shaking. As I cross to the market entrance she keels over (before I could react) , and starts seizing. Kid starts screaming...

    I'm on 911, while tenting to airway, look up and there's another ex emt ,helping with the roll over on her side , this goes for a good 3-4 minutes until she's postictal , cops shows up first, ems second

    I swear whoever runs this place is psychic

    Thank you for all you have done... and this just goes to show you that you're still willing to help another in need.

    Thx but...I don't see as I had much choice. My retirement includes playing out again, i'm singin' with the sinners in cheesy bars , no more cryin' with all you saints

    So one night a dude goes over backwards in his barstool , 3 of us where on him, an retired RN, an ex Nav Corpsman along w/yours truly , it came back to us ,we were able to at least provide 911 as well as the attending ems unit some details & vitals

    It sure feels a lot different being on the 'good sam' side of it all , but we're out there if it falls in our laps & we're counting on all of you now , the torch be passed!

    Done a bit of good sam stuff too... I never go out & about looking for stuff to get into either. If it falls into my lap, I'll deal with it, hand it off and get back to whatever I was doing. Totally different than being required to deal with it! With Good Sam, you always have a choice... question is whether or not you can abide with one of those. ;)

    I was on the plane yesterday, and had my nose cancelling head phones on, watching a show on my kindle, so I almost missed the announcement asking for any passengers with medical training.. I hesitated a little, seeing as all I have is Natl Registry...and a lady identifying herself as a nurse was told it was ok, she wasn't needed...so I went back to my Kindle lol
