If you are having trouble breathing...

I can help you. Yes, it's true and official - I am a recertified Level 3 OFA - yay and whew. I am sooooo glad it's over!

But... I will hang on to my pocket mask and if you are cyanotic, having trouble breathing, have dypsnea, wheezing or stridor, I can and will provide ventilated assistance.

Now, onto more important things:

Poor Lyndsay Jacobilsen (or however it's spelled) but yay for Maelle Ricker!! Whoo hoo! Gold for Canada!

My friend, Leslie, waited in line 7.5 hrs for a trip on the Zip Line! Is she nuts?? Yes! But then, many people line up for 2+ hours just to get into the Canadian Mint Pavilion - another one where I shake my head.

And you have to line up for over an hour to get into the Bay Olympic area, and then another hour at the cashier. Ke-razy!

Well, I can also split your fractured femur or humerus, align and stablilize your neck in case of a spinal injury, package you for rapid transport, etc etc etc... and thank you all. It's a big relief! I never worry about the written but obsess and sweat about the practical. Turns out I needn't have worried - we had a great instructor.

So... what do we all think about Begg-Smith? Smile

Ehbeth, I'll pm you when I get back re: TO.

@Mame,
I got goosebumps just thinking about you spliting my femur. Don't wanna even think about the humerus.

@Mame,
I'm ok. I got my breath back. I am breathing a little easier now. I'm keeping a paper bag by my side just in case.

@Mame,
Well done, Mame. Good work!

Is this a qualification for a new job? Or is it that you just want to help people generally, around the place, if they're having trouble breathing?

@dadpad,
msolga - It's a 2 week crash course in first aid that enables me to obtain more work as a cook than if I didn't have it - I'm much more employable with it because we work in isolated regions of the north, primarily.


dadpad - no, no one has really said anything. We got his history, prior to the race, but nothing since then. I thought he showed a lack of grace when he realized he was 2nd instead of 1st. Pouty baby.

Ah, now I see.
Thanks for the response, Mame.
Becoming much more employable is an excellent thing!
