I was telling sweetpea about your fucked up situation.
Man, it shook her up.
She told me about when she was a combat medic had a patient in arrest and CPR'd 15min to no avail. She still feels like a failure.
18yrs and i never knew that.

Ff, I've fucking thumped a lot of chests in 20 yrs of EMS and I've had maybe 5 or 6 make it to the ER with pulses back and of those I can think of only 2 that may have walked out and that was because of our immediate response in one case, and the other coded in our rig.

Witnessed arrests with immediate cpr and defib within 4 minutes is the best chance, all others are usually futile, except in cold water immersion/hypothermia and that ups the odds.

Tell sweetpea she is not a failure. She tried, against often insurmountable odds. She should be commended for that. 18 yrs is to long to beat yourself over something that was an uphill climb from the beginning. I'm sure she put her heart into it, and she should be proud of that as well.




btw, I didn't mention, during the code (it was at an assisted living facility for dementia patients) one of my co-workers called me. His ringtone is the theme song from Halloween. Fucking eh! It was a good thing no family was around because we giggled like a bunch of wacko fuckers. Talk about timing :wink:

I know, we're a bunch of twisted humor fuckers. It's what helps keep us sane. Or does it? :lol:
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

Hey since this is your first burn, you should tell them you don't want to do that shift and I'm sure they will be accommodating. If not, just volunteer for something else.

I just sent an email to Michael. Told him the two shifts I can't work; This Meet-N-Greet and the greeter shift for Stag Camp, told him I'm prefer station 9 and told him to pick any shift that worked within those constraints for me. I'd like field, but figured I've been enough of a hassle for a guy who only wants one shift.

Thank you for your service.

I know coroners, and they all have a sense of humour.

But morticians?
Wow.

Do you know the name of the psychological effect that makes us identify with someone hurt, and makes us squeamish?
It is supposed to be an identification with our own vulnerability.

I'm completely unfazed by the dead, but very uneasy about anyone alive being hurt.
Is that weird?

Not weird. Not weird at all.

For contrast, "I'm completely unfazed by the dead, but very uneasy about anyone alive."
Now that would be fucking weird... :)

That fucking sucks.

My phone was robbed from me once and can't recover some numbers.
You have to back them up.

Send for a copy of numbers dialed.
I have one for the person that robbed me, their house or a relative.
A visit is planned.

I'm wired for justice, like some.


I was looking at some scans like what happened to me, about 70,000.
I started feeling really weird as I realized there weren't any as dramatic as mine in the database.
None of living people.
I'm starting to understand why no one expected me to survive.

They asked me for dnr or my version.
I told them to keep me alive with all means.

Something happened to my survival drive once.
My surgeon thinks it's why I lived.

Still alive, though equipment care smacks of carelessness.


The survival thing is kind of interesting.

I think it must happen to other people.
I suspect it is supposed to happen to all of us.

It was physical, primal, feral.
And it didn't go away.

As a parent now I read stuff like that and look over at the awesome little boy messing with the electronics...if something happened to him I would be devastated and totally lost. I offer you and your family my deepest sympathy. Fucking makes me cringe just thinking about it.
