The Patient

0420 Hrs. "Rescue 1, Respond to 54 Chair Street for a fifty year old male who fell down a flight of stairs." I fumble for the radio, find the key and press. "Rescue 1, responding." In the five minutes it takes to arrive on scene blood flow has resumed, hopefully erasing the crease on my […]

The Man

We found him laying on the floor, on his back, in the hospital near the cafe. A group of people surrounded him, telling him to stay down and not move. He had an air of authority, but there is strength in numbers, and when you have a herniated disc that moved out of place you […]

http://thehappymedic.com/2011/06/a-tip-of-the-helmet-literally/ This story has gone from bad, when I learned two San Francisco firefighters were injured, to worse, when I heard they were critical, to devestating when I found out that hey both died in the line of duty, to bearable as the days passed, to tolerable when I watched some footage of the funeral […]

Gangs all Here

Entry Img

One kid is stabbed, another one bleeding from a knife wound, somebody took four bullets to the abdomen a few hours ago, the lightening has started and golf ball sized hail is falling from the sky.

Quiet…quiet…quiet…A loud tone blares, the auditorium suddenly  illuminated with blinding light, two figures descend from above, sliding the brass poles, then two more, then two more.
