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 […]

I Love The Guys….

Entry Img

Two of my very best friends are male.  We know we can call one another at any time of day for any reason at all. I have one son and one brother who I love more than life itself and would walk through fire for.  I’d give my life for them. I have a step-dad […]

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 […]

Tackling a fear…

Entry Img

One of my favorite bloggers and good friend Happy Medic very recently wrote about a overcoming a fear from his childhood.  I was lucky enough to be around to  help drag him towards that evil clown witness the event… Honestly, it was one of the highlights of Expo week for me.  Those who know me best know […]

I'm reclaiming my blog.

I started this mess as a way to express myself. Sure, the blog title itself is EMS related, but I didn’t create it specifically for EMS purposes. It was supposed to be an outlet for me.  I started writing on Myspace for crying out loud! This was supposed to be a place to celebrate the little things […]

How not to behave in public.

Baby L

Dear Baby L, It’s been quite awhile since we were last together, yet it feels like yesterday.  I was one of the sweaty paramedics in the back of the ambulance working as hard as I could to save another one of your family members that night.  I was the one who took your limp body from the firefighter’s hands […]

Help Needed.

Hey Ya’ll! I know things have been quiet around here (Cripe! I said the “Q” word!), and for that I apologize. Between the recovery process from my back injury to starting a new job, life has been a little… hectic. Last night I was sitting at my computer and trying to overcome my unbelievably large […]

Go Forth…

And… read.  Please.  My friend Kevin over at  A Look at EMS from 120 Feet Below has a very good post up.  Get a box of tissues ready. Kevin, we need more like you.  You can take care of me and mine anytime. The post is called Veteran’s Day.
