A tired hero

April 12, 2021


It’s 7:30 and Lloyd’s already gone to bed, so you won’t get the whole story or in any witty way, but you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.

Apparently, one of the students passed out on the grass outside the school. Another student ran inside to get a teacher, and found Lloyd. Lloyd rushed out and she was OUT. He did all the CPR training you are supposed to do: check for pulse, check for breathing (no breathing), have someone call 911 and have someone get the principal. He found her pulse, was trying to rouse her, but just couldn’t see if she was breathing. The principal sprinted out, kneeled down, and he and Lloyd looked at each other with the ‘one-of-us-is-going-to-have-to-start-rescue-breaths-soon’ look, and….

… the girl gave a big gasp and came to.

Lloyd took his phone back from the kid who called 911, answered some questions the EMT asked and they decided an ambulance was not needed. Everyone went inside, the girl was picked up by her mom and is apparently ok. (This has apparently happened before.)

See? So exciting! Don’t you want Lloyd here to answer your questions?

    Wow! Way to go, Lloyd! The only time I faced an emergency situation was when a lady at the communion rail started choking. I froze. Thankfully, the man next to her started the Heimlich and she was ok.

    Did the mom say what kind of condition this was? It sounds like the thing where people would sometimes get buried alive because others thought they were dead, but they weren’t. Was it Edgar Allen Poe who was so afraid of that?

    Way to go, Lloyd! I had to administer an epi pen once. I had so much adrenaline that I could not sleep. BTW the epi pen worked.

    Goodness! How long was she OUT? Does she wear some kind of medical bracelet to alert people to her condition, whatever it is????

    Hero’s. Sounds like you did all you should.
