Well, as I've said before, I really need to make more time to write. Just seems that between work, paramedic school, helping with EMT class, and travel, my blogging fell off the desk.
It's been a rough few months. I lost my beloved grandfather and a good friend. Both died fairly healthy, both at home, and didn't deal with lingering debilitating health issues. How they would have wanted, I think. I miss them dearly.
I somehow thought the holidays would be a great time to catch up on course work - ha! Aside from my paramedic courses, I'm supposed to be working through this self-paced A&P class. Well, I did crack the book and make it to Chapter 3 (of 24) before getting a not-so-gentle reminder from my medic school that they need the transcripts from my A&P class. Gulp. I dusted off the book and made myself a study plan. Hope to be done by the end of February.
In 'medic school we have survived 4 months of class (wow - it's really gone fast!)
Just to refresh, here's the total schedule:
Practicing my intubation, IV starts, and med administration on our manequins here. Though I was told not to practice until we get to skills boot camp in August (really?). I need to get hands-on with the equipment and I've got Mr. Medic showing me the ropes. We have a ton of expired meds and IV fluid so I get to practice a ton. Need to play with the IO drill as well...
So much to do! Will write more soon, promise!
