If Fates Allow

Loren at I Saw Lightening Fall hosts a Christmas Ghost Story compilation this time every year. 100 words, no more, no less!  The song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas never sounded much like a joyous celebration of the season to me, a little heartbreaking actually. But it did serve as inspiration to this merry little tale.

 

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas now…”

The needle lifted, retreated, lowered.

Pop, hiss – music…

“Have yourself, a Merry Little Christmas…”

The flag, neatly folded above the mantle, had looked so crisp on his coffin.

She wore her best dress, and played their favorite song. One hand held his picture, the other, his pistol.

The song played on; “friends dear to us, will be near to us, once more.”

Till death do us part? She wondered, and pulled the trigger.

“Someday soon, we’ll be together, if fates allow…”

The needle lifted, retreated, lowered……

They found her New Year’s Eve.

I think there is room for all of us in the future of EMS. Just like not all nurses like the ER, not all paramedics only want to run the sickest patients. Personally, my favorite calls are MCIs, a close second is probably the little old lady low fall. We can specialize. If you don't…

Ya know, I identify with everything you just said! But then I am a special kind of twisted, because I recently got back into EMS after having been out of it for 20 years... I'm not a nurse, I'm a MEDIC and damn proud of it! We in EMS are a special breed and not…

Let us not forget who started this whole EMS / medic thing; Clara Barton, RN "Angel of the Battlefield" who founded the American Red Cross. My point is, this has always been a collaboration through the years. Only due to nursing shortages and the frequency of injury on our "highways and bi-ways" there was a…

Regardless, i'm in Canada and there have been a number of successful projects here using blended RN/Paramedic staffing to fill physician shortages in rural communities, as well as both using both NP's and Paramedics to deliver hospital grade care…
