Today were most thankful for Paramedics, EMTs and First Responders. We were always thankful for the good things they do, but today we’re really thankful for them. Sunday evening the Dad started not feeling well and it wasn’t getting better. The Dad was having some pressure in his chest and some numbness in his right arm. Since the Dad had a stent put in several years ago, messing with anything to do with the heart is not an option.
The Mom called 9-1-1. The First Responders were at our house in about 2 minutes, we could here them coming. The Paramedics hooked the Dad up to some monitoring equipment quick like. In just a few more minutes the EMTs arrived and the ambulance was here. The house was full of strange humans dressed up in all kind of funny gear. It was sure pretty scary.
They took the Dad out on a stretcher and took him to a hospital place with 24/7 heart care. That hospital is about 30 minutes away and then the Mom left too. When they got to the hospital the Doctor and Nurses were waiting for the Dad and the tests started immediately, no waiting. Within minutes the Dad had an EKG done, blood work done and a chest x-ray done.
All of those tests were okay so they determined that the Dad did not have a heart attack. That’s good. Of course they couldn’t say that he wouldn’t have one. So, on Tuesday the Dad went to take a Nuclear Medicine Stress Test and today he is going to a Cardiologist to see about the results of his test.
I wanted to mention that so in case we miss posting for some reason y’all will know something must be going on. Poor Brother Simon and Sister Seal were in full panic mode with all of the introoders in the house and they didn’t come out for at least 24 hours.
We’re sure thankful for the quick response though and that things are okay so far. What are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
