Hazmat- this one's for you Keenan and Jimmy!

I went to the pain specialist today. I go in tomorrow for an epidural. Ouch. Thank god I will be somewhat knocked out with versed for the procedure. Hopefully it will work the first time. The Dr. said it may not work the first time, but they will try it three times before they do anything more drastic. Then they do something with the disc. I'm not quite sure what, but it doesn't sound like fun.

Finally back at the fire academy tonight. Yeah! Hazmat awareness. Good times. I really don't remember most of the class. A bunch of stuff that I have had to learn multiple times. We had to take hazmat awareness in EMT-B and EMT-P classes. Oh well. I think I'm hazmatted out. I definitely won't be going on for ops or technician level any time soon.

One thing I know for sure: If I see a big green cloud or a huge spill of something hazardous-I'm running the other way; and if I am close enough to see people that are down-I will still probably run because I don't want to become one of them. Then I'll call 911. Damn....wait a second-that's still me. Poop. Pretty reassuring, huh?
