It not until you need the service of the above people, that you come to know that they are worth every cent they are paid and more.

Ten days ago Ross and I need the service of these wonderful people, for the first time in our life we had to call the paramedic’s to our home, Ross had what they are calling for now a turn of some kind,(he still having test done).

The young man who answered my call for help, was so very good, he told me what to do and how to go about it, most of it I knew and had done some of it, but it was very comforting to hear a voice telling you that you are doing all the right things.

The two paramedic come to the house, these two young people, not only showed what wonderful skill’s they have, but also so much kindness and understanding, towards both Ross and I. They did everything they could to help us and explained in very easy to understand terms what they were doing and why, this for both Ross and I made a very trying time, so much easier.

I know doctors and Nurse at the hospitals do wonderful things and what they do to make people better is outstanding, but the first person most of us see if we are in an accident or need an ambulance is a Paramedic, it there skills at keeping us alive and those around us calm, till we get to the hospital, that is so important.

I know the cost of putting these young people through Uni is so very high, but the lives’ they save is worth every cent.

  1. A very nice and well deserved tribute to the paramedics.

  2. I can only agree with your statement, Sue...because if medics do their job right, nursing staff can take over quicker...which translates into saving lives.

  3. So glad this tragic moment that you both encountered had a wonderful outcome , and you are right, they are a priceless gem when you get medics that are as thoughtful and professional as the ones that arrived at your house. Hope all goes well with the test and that you both have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Dropping in here Sue to ask how Ross is? and to wish you a relaxing weekend... Dreamwalker xxx
