We sat around and I did some studying and I was chillaxin on the recliner when BOOM...we got a scene call!
The entire way there and while trying to land my heart was racing! I really wanted this but I was so nervous. My medic was great and I had prepared myself for this day for months. Luckily while in the helicopter I have to concentrate on looking out, safety and landing, so I didn't have time to get too scared.
Well the call happened and I was able to use some skills that I had been practicing and studying but had never used in that setting.
Picture of the GlideScope that morning during our morning equipment check. It is a visual laryngoscope so we see on the screen where to put the breathing tube instead of cranking the mouth open and trying to look inside. I went through our scene bag just to make sure I knew where stuff was.
The pilot took this picture while we were working on the patient.
We finished the call and I think we did pretty darn great.
When I got home late, not even a dog met me at the door. I found them downstairs sleeping with Daniel. Even when I went down there and kissed Daniel good night they stayed there.
Needless to say all that adrenaline took it's toll on me the next day.
I still managed to get up and get going. It was my last day in the gym walking on the treadmill. I walked a very brisk 1 mile with no pain! Yippee!
After I went to REI (sports store) and found a new flavor of NUUN.
One of my pilates teachers showed my some band exercises I could do with my foot and I've been trying to do them every day to get my foot and ankle strong. I really like working out with.
I am giving my foot every chance to get me running again.
I've come up with a running plan and hope that I will be running an hour within 5-6 weeks.
Do you like working out with bands?
How do you find your best training or rehab plans?
