I'm all packed up. Moving out of the room I'm renting. Friends from a few hours north came down. They stopped by the farm and my dad sent them with the 1911 he made for me.

Tomorrow I'll be moved out and no more roommate.

Our Dept now has a member with a confirmed case of COVID-19
Lol, my wife has a family member a few counties over who’s tested positive. She talked to them earlier, they can hardly breathe. It’s legit, no good.

I’m not “lol-ing” at your or the gravity of the situation. I’m just sayin’, it’s real, inevitable, and stay vigilant.

Speaking of ranges, trump made the gun industry essential, including ranges, but it appears it is only applicable to staffed ranges. Mine is not staffed and im sure the new uptight board wont even consider paying volunteers $1 for 4 hour blocks as range safety officers to open it back up.

When you get those calls that just rock your world as a paramedic, you do everything in your power, recognize issues and treat/ mitigate accordingly but in the end the pt dies. Moral of the story. Don’t shoot yourself in the chest.

All I heard was a bloody LifeBlanket for me to disinfect and throw in the washer for the umpteenth time. No gracias

Hearing from my old EMS service and FD, only a minor injury from last nights F2. I think it was a lady that stepped on a nail on a blown off shingle.

Lots of damage, a couple houses around the corner sustained heavy damage a few in town were destroyed. We got pretty lucky, the screen blew out of my daughters bedroom window and the trash cans blew over. 1,000 feet apparently makes a world of difference.

I saw drs, nurses, etc in the ED trying to work on a pt that shot himself in the head. He didn't make it.

Ain't worth saving. No point in make a guy who just wanted to be dead into nursing home veg.
Sometimes you just get grazed or something. Not everyone Kurt Kobains themselves.

I didn't see where the bullet was. But I'm guessing (at my original impression) it was not a miss because the amount of blood. Even though head wounds are normally bleeders.

I've seen a lot of people who shoot themselves in the head. Only one lived, and he called 911 on himself after he had shot upwards and forwards from under his chin blowing off a good portion of his face and nose. He had never coded.

If there is disruption to the brain tissue and the patient codes it isn't worth saving. I've seen some pretty traumatic open head injuries that have lived, and they are all massively debilitated. That isn't what I would want for myself, and isn't what I'd want for my family. Saving some kid (or adult for that matter) who ends up with no cognitive brain function isn't life. That is dragging a corpse through slow deconditioning and a family through emotional torture.

Head GSWs are usually too unstable to make any donation worth much (Liver, heart, lungs, kidney, et cetera). A good anoxic insult from asphyxiation or OD, that's a different story.
