I Apologize

For my absence recently...well actually for a couple of months. I have just had a lot going on. I was actually sick myself for nearly this entire month. I was in the hospital for several days, and I have been going back and forth with specialists. Definitely my idea of fun. I hate hospitals. And quite honestly I don't care for doctors, nurses, or the lot. Haha. Well, they're all okay unless I'm the one that's sick. I just don't like being the patient at all. And I'm a horrible patient because of it. I usually wait until the very last second to go to the ER. For example: I had an asthma attack this summer, while I was working, and I sat at the station in my bed, for at least an hour before my partner forced me to go. At the hospital I stopped breathing several times. Ha. But I still lived, so I still plan on waiting until I can't any longer.

Work has been pretty much the same. Some good calls...many not so good calls. I delivered my first baby this month. That was probably the best call I have ever been on.

I just got off work this morning from the ambulance company. Yesterday's shift was a complete nightmare. I started at 0700 and I was ready to leave by 1000. It was just bad. It wasn't like we were extremely busy or anything. We only ran five calls in 24 hours. We were just all over the place, ending up out of the county and running calls that another station should have been running, etc. The normal b.s. And absolutely everyone was crabby. It was ridiculous. And my partner and I were crabby as well. I swear we were getting CO poisoning in our rig or something because we were both feeling sick and dizzy. Like if I moved my head too fast, I would still be seeing whatever I was looking at before...and not what I was actually looking at. It was very odd. They kept us up for practically the entire shift. As soon as we'd drift off, the nextel would go off with another call. Typical day. I think the dispatchers time us so that as soon as we should be sleeping, they wake us up...like they purposely hold calls for that hour so that they can have the pleasure of disturbing my sleep. Oh well.

Anyways, I hope to update this much more often from now on. I'm sorry it took me so long! But hopefully some interesting calls soon.
