Pediatrics. Pediatrics have to be the hardest calls to go on. Could be the apneic 4 month old that after checking responsiveness starts breathing and acting age appropriate, or the 7 y/o behavioral outburst that trashed the place because he didn't get the extra cookie he wanted, or the 4 year old having feveral seizures. And then there was yesterday's call, the...

So I have made the decision. This upcoming year I will be working my way out of debt and setting myself up for further education. The plan educationwise is to prep for a certificate in Paramedic studies or go for the associates degree in Paramedic studies and Emergency Management Response.

It was horrible. I was worried that The ambulance was gonna flip on a couple turns he took. We left a scene with a 90 y/o with a possible fractured elbow and I asked him to take it easy down the street we were on because of how bumpy it was, but he still drove away as if we were going lights and siren to the hospital...

So in case there are those out there wondering about my photographic style and previous work, here is a link to my portfolio. Yes i know, it is the basic portfolio, but it helps to have a visual until I have some work to post on here.
