  I can remember the exact moment that I knew I needed to work in EMS.  The precise moment.  The moment that my son was choking in front of me.  The moment that I realized I had no idea how to help him.  The fire fighters that came to Nick’s rescue inspired me with their […]

Today I walked in celebration of my amazing Aunt, who has kicked breast cancer’s backside, not just once, but twice. (She’s also whooped on skin cancer, but who’s keeping score when one is clearly that badass?) I held my daughter’s hand and walked through a sea of pink. I loved it. And I’m fairly certain the little […]

Dear Abby

Last night my daughter saw me cry.  I try to never let this happen, mostly because I remember how I felt when I’d see my Mom cry.   My little one is very much like me, even at her young age.  The first words out of her mouth were, “What’s wrong, Mom?”  She lept into my lap […]

Help Needed.

Hey Ya’ll! I know things have been quiet around here (Cripe! I said the “Q” word!), and for that I apologize.

That the kids are alive and well. Well, one of them has a cold (care to guess which?), but for the most part they’re doing well. Hell, they still are willing to pose for a pic together after two days snowed in together.

1/07/10 I’m sitting here in the station in complete darkness surrounded by a symphony of snoring men. Yes, Boy Wonder, you snore.  D.  You snore too. We all knew the Lt. snores, although tonight he seems to be bringing his own version of shock and awe to the mix.  Shock and awe, ya’ll.  If only […]

Halloween 2009…

Entry Img

Alternately titled:  Don’t mess with my Boy. I feel like I failed my kid, and it’s driving me nuts.  Not a huge fail, but any fail as a Parent feels significant. Let’s start at the beginning.  Future Cardiologist has been struggling lately with picking a costume for Halloween.  In the grand scheme of things this […]
