EMT / Patient
First let me say .. DO NOT PLAY WITH FIRE CHILDREN !!!!!!!!! We had a call where a young teenager set him self on fire accidentally pouring some kind of ignition on a citronella candle.. He was very badly burned and will be going through a lot to recover .. he was sent to a trauma hospital where they had to intabate him, With all this excitement that was going on I was asked to go to the first responder to get something for a CC and I fell into a hole .. my stethoscope went flying .. it was very embarrassing but I had to laugh .. I had no choice but to. I got right back up brushed my self off ... It did hurt, though the pain I was in was NOTHING compared to the pain that the little boy was in and his mom so nothing was going to stop me ( I do not want to sound like some kind of superwomen .. so please do not think that ) I continued to head to the first responder get what I needed and go back to help out. I took the mom to the hospital while everyone else focused on her son ( who stop drop and roll .. keep in mind that DOES help ). After I got the mom to the hospital and settled .. THEN right after I was done with the kid's mom ANOTHER call was toned out ... OMG .. It just would NOT stop .. I was the only one on the ambulance with this patient too .. and these people's houses must keep their heat up regardless because it was like 70 something deg. outside but man when you walked in to these homes it was like 100 and something .. I swear. I do not know if it was my adrenalin and the heat or just the heat but it was bad. Finally by 11:15 everything had clam down my crew was back with ANOTHER order of food seeing that our first order was cold and you just can't re-heat burger king again .. Its just not that good! We eat then got the rigs put back together again and 12'oclock hit I was out of there.. Heading home.. into my bed.. asleep by 1am ... woke up at 5:30am .. headed to work at 6:30am .. was in a lot of pain ... helped out a little then at 9am I was down in the ER.. by 11am I was heading back home on crutches!!! LOL What a night .. just think this is just the start of a looooooooooong summer!!!
