Choke

The tones rang out
18 month old choking
a blur to get to the ambulance
Emergency medical tunnel vision
can't find the street in the map book
can't think about anything
but how to fix a choking child
a kid that I may never get to
I can't find the fucking address!
Someone else knows where to go

The pt is the Lt's grandaughter.

I am the lead medic.

I about shit my pants.

She was fine.

But I failed.

Hi, lead medic. Glad you didn't embarrass yourself with a trouser-related bottom incident.

Good to see this blog is still up and running - haven't been here for a while.

Guess I should find something to put up...

Watch this space!
