My book is now paper back. Enjoy !
So as most of you know I am a paramedic by trade besides being an author. I just wanted to share a call with you that I had yesterday.
I had a 94 yr old man who had cardiac surgery. This surgery was successful but this patient was left with respiratory failure and kidney failure.
My job was to take this patient from the hospital to a hospice home. I found my patient lying in bed, with his arms and legs full of seeping edema and on a ventilator so he could breathe.
Carefully we sheet lift this man to our gurney, put him on my traveling
ventilator and brought him to this hospice house. We gently put him in a bed, made him look presentable, and let the family come in to see him.
Than. . . . . I was told to take him off the vent.
Sometimes my job is hard, and this was one of those days. I had to hide my tears as I unhooked him and took my equipment out of the room.
Don’t take life for granted. LIVE - LAUGH- LOVE
