Today is the MDA 69 girls' last day. I'm going to miss them-- I like them.
Today, Wednesday, February 27, 2008
So that entry was supposed to be continued and just didn't happen. The girls are so sweet-- they'll be in Lod, so I'll go visit them. They invited me out [last night], but I had a shift this morning.
Yeah, we had a call-- and another ambulance took it. Boo-ya.
We had 2 calls today-- a drink guy who turned out to be high- he told Ohad that he had taken heroin earlier, and a kid who had a seizure. The whole station was dead; most people had maybe 3-4 calls.
Yesterday was more interesting. Had more calls, including one in an Arab area- not horribly scary- and an old lady who needed lots of reassurance. There was also a call for a fight, but it was canceled. Oh well. Oh, and a sad call, too-- a teenager OD'd on sleeping pills and we had to take her to the hospital, but we got her there and she had a good pulse, low blood pressure, but I hope she'll be okay.
The one thing I learned today was where Bikur Cholim is. It is a hole in the wall, but Elchanan (see? there's your mention) says it has a great cardio dept.
Tomorrow is a tiyul to the Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea. I might get to do a night shift with Shloime and Ryan, but Ryan's going to call Shloime and ask. I'll be wiped after the tiyul, but I can sleep on the bus and before the shift. Who knows is I'll even be able to. Maybe, maybe another week. Who knows.
I decided that if I come back and am here for a few years, I'll definitely do the medic course. I'd like to do the instructor course, bit I don't know if I'll be able to, based on timing. I also have to see how my insurance works out, and where I end up working.
